AUDIO-TECHNICA INTRODUCES ES963 THREE-ELEMENT MULTIDIRECTIONAL BOUNDARY MICROPHONE

es963 — Contractor-exclusive Engineered Sound® boundary mic provides full, efficient and flexible coverage, meaning that fewer microphones are required for the same job —

STOW, OH, June 22, 2010 — Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 45 years, expands its award-winning, contractor-exclusive Engineered Sound® line with the introduction of the ES963 Three-Element Multidirectional Boundary Microphone. The ES963 is designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, conferencing, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications in the installed sound and sound contracting markets. The microphone provides full, efficient and flexible coverage of large table areas, giving users a more streamlined mic setup.

Three cardioid condenser elements mounted in the microphone housing are factory set with an angle of 120 degrees between them to provide complete 360-degree coverage (in the hemisphere above mounting surface). Two positioning levers on the microphone base allow two of the three elements to be reoriented (with no tools or disassembly required) to offer angles of 90/90/180 degrees between elements – ideal for positioning at the end of long conference tables, for example. Since elements can be powered and used individually or in combination, further flexibility is easily achieved. For example, with two elements powered, the microphone can provide a figure-of-eight polar pattern; with a single element powered, the microphone functions as a standard cardioid boundary microphone. Four indented recessed pathways on the base of the ES963 enable the user to route the cable as required to accommodate any installation requirements; no tools or disassembly are needed.

The ES963 includes a 7.5-meter (24.6-foot) permanently attached output cable. Its free end is unterminated stripped and tinned pigtails, giving the installer flexibility in interfacing with a variety of equipment. Small-diameter capsules near the boundary eliminate phase distortion and deliver clear, high-output performance.

The ES963 is equipped with UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology, which offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphone requires 11V to 52V DC phantom power for operation. Elements can be powered and used individually, or in any combination. The ES963’s heavy die-cast case and non-slip silicon foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. The microphone features a low-profile design and a low-reflectance black finish, and comes equipped with a soft protective pouch. Output is low impedance (Lo-Z balanced).

Audio-Technica’s ES963 Three-Element Multidirectional Boundary Microphone will be available summer 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of $495.00. As with all Audio-Technica Engineered Sound products, the ES963 comes standard with a five-year warranty. For more information, please visit www.audio-technica.com.
