ISE 2017: Audio-Technica expands network mic offering

Audio-Technica is debuting two new Dante-enabled ceiling-mount microphone solutions at the ISE Show, which opened its doors to visitors today at the RAI Amsterdam.

The company’s complete ATUC-50 digital discussion system will also be on display for the first time – with a variety of seminars on the ATUC-50 and general microphone specification and deployment planned for the show.

The ATND931 Dante six-inch gooseneck microphone and ATND933 Dante hanging microphone are both available in a number of configurations, including black and white colour options and a selection of three polar patterns (cardioid, hypercardioid and MicroLine). All configurations come standard with the new ATND8734 ceiling-mount power module with Dante network output, offering a solution for integrating these new microphones with a Dante network without the need for a separate, standalone audio interface.

The ATND8734 comes equipped with an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep filter, selectable for a flat response or low-frequency roll-off, as well as a three-position input gain level selector (+30 dB, +40 dB, and +50 dB) and green/red LEDs. All features may be configured and controlled remotely via third-party software.

ISE 2017 will also represent the first showing of Audio-Technica’s complete ATUC-50 digital discussion system with the recently introduced ATUC-50INT interpretation unit.

The ATUC-50INT (which carries recommended pricing of £295.80/€355 ex VAT) will receive its first showing at ISE on the Audio-Technica booth, Hall 3-A122.

Audio-Technica will also host a seminar focused on the ATUC-50 on Friday 10 February between 10:00am – 12:00pm. To be held in Meeting Room G001 in the Auditorium Centre, the seminar will provide an introduction and guide to easy set-up, programming and system integration for integrators, end-users and distributors. To register for one of the limited seminar spaces, visitors are asked to email their name, job title and phone number to

In addition, Audio-Technica technical director Zsolt Zold will host two seminars as part of the InfoComm FlashTrack programme on Wednesday 8 February. Dealing with microphone choice, performance and positioning for conference environments, the seminars will be held at Booth 13-N100 at 10.30am (Hyper Hyper! – Polar Patterns and Performance) and 11am (Put It Right – Proper Positioning For Microphones).
