ISE 2016: New Audio-Technica digital conference system

Audio-Technica’s new ATUC-50 digital conference system will make its European debut at this year’s ISE Show, which begins today in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

A ‘new-generation’ conference solution, the ATUC-50 is designed for simple operation and plug-and-play functionality. According to the company, the system’s cost-effective nature belies its power and flexibility, with multi mode operation, 12-band feedback suppressor, on-board four-channel recorder and translation channel all featuring in the ATUC-50’s specification. A choice of two gooseneck lengths with the ATUC-M43H (430mm) and ATUC-M58H (580mm) microphones also allows for flexibility in terms of positioning.

Employing standard Cat5 (and above) cables, up to 150 ATUC-50DU discussion units can be connected in either daisy chain or ring topology (for added redundancy) and controlled from any web browser with no need for additional software installation. Configuration via Web Remote Control is simple and quick, with settings able to be stored as presets for easy recall.

The user-friendly design of the ATUC-50 and its ‘unrivalled sound quality’ makes it best suited for applications throughout the corporate sector, from boardrooms and meeting rooms to multilingual conference settings, houses of worship and more.
