Orlando, FL 06-12-2019 Audio-Technica (booth 5968) is exhibiting the ES954 Hanging Microphone Array, an ideal, cost-effective solution for huddle rooms, conference rooms and other meeting spaces. When controlled by the Audio-Technica ATDM-0604 Digital SmartMixer®, the four-capsule microphone array provides 360-degree coverage through virtual hypercardioid or cardioid outputs that can be steered horizontally and tilted vertically.

Intended primarily for videoconferencing applications, the ES954 may be used singly or in multiples to capture every person speaking in a room. When using the ATDM-0604 Digital SmartMixer, the intuitive graphic interface enables control of the width and orientation of each virtual polar pattern, steerable in 30-degree increments, with a tilt function accommodating differing ceiling heights or users that are sitting/standing. Used in conjunction with a gate on each microphone channel, the system could be configured to automatically follow anyone talking while moving around the space.

The ES954 Hanging Microphone Array features a permanently attached 1.2-meter (4-foot) cable with locking grommet enabling easy microphone height adjustment. UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The package includes a low-reflective white finish Plenum-rated AT8554 Ceiling Mount with RJ45 connectors and push-type wire terminals, along with an included seismic cable, for simple, secure installation that blends with the ceiling tiles in most environments. The ES954 connects to the mixer over a pair of shielded standard Cat 5 cables. Two included RJ45 breakout cables provide four phoenix-terminated mic outputs and one dual unterminated LED control cable. An integral, logic-controlled 360-degree red/green LED ring provides clear indication of the array’s mute status. The high-output/low self-noise array is phantom powered (11 VDC to 52 VDC).

The ES954 Hanging Microphone Array is currently available.
