InfoComm: Audio-Technica launches wireless system

Audio-Technica has introduced its new System 10 camera-mount wireless microphone system at InfoComm 2014.

The lightweight hot or cold-shoe mountable ATW-R1700 receiver is compact (8.9cm x 5.7cm x 2.8cm) and features an independent headphone monitor output and selectable balanced or unbalanced audio output on 3.5mm mini-jack connectors. Powered by an internal rechargeable (via micro-USB and included adaptor) Li-Ion battery, the System 10 camera mount unit has both receiver and transmitter battery life indicators and can be used with Audio-Technica’s System 10 beltpack or dynamic handheld digital wireless microphone transmitters.

System 10 operates in the 2.4GHz range, immune to TV and DTV interference, and offers accurate sound and easy operation with instantaneous channel selection, sync, and set-up.

System 10 wireless ensures clear communications by providing three levels of diversity assurance: frequency, time, and space. Frequency Diversity sends the signal on two dynamically allocated frequencies for interference-free communication. Time Diversity sends the signal in multiple time slots to maximise immunity to multipath interference. Finally, Space Diversity uses two antennas on each transmitter and receiver to maximise signal integrity.

The ATW-R1700 camera-mount receiver will be available in September.
