DANTE IP MICROPHONE
Audio-Technica has bridged the gap between audio and IT with the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data over a Dante network.
The new Audio-Technica ATND971 cardioid condenser boundary network mic is a plug-and-play solution using the very low latency Dante network protocol and, as a network device with its own IP address, can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
A simple Ethernet connection allows communication across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices and with the microphone’s programmable user switch, controls any of those devices at the push of a button.
Destined for boardrooms and other meeting spaces, the ATND971 boundary mic includes a red/green LED to indicate mute status, incoming phone calls or other creative visual effects, and an integrated user switch to control external devices such as room lighting, triggering and pan/tilting a video camera, and more. It’s phantom powered by network PoE and, as Dante can support up to 512 bidirectional audio channels, offers an easily scalable solution.
The ATND971 retails in Australia for $995.
