INFOCOMM, LAS VEGAS, NV, June 18, 2014 — Audio-Technica(Booth C10520), a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, announces its new Audio-Technica ATND971 Cardioid Condenser Boundary Network Microphone, bridging the gap between audio and IT as the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data together over Audinate’s Dante™ network protocol. Dante has become a go-to method of networking for many audio professionals; a true plug-and-play solution, Dante uses standard Internet protocols to distribute digital audio and control data with very low latency.

A simple Ethernet connection allows the ATND971 Network Microphone to communicate across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices and, with the microphone’s programmable user switch, control any of those devices at the push of a button. A perfect fit for boardrooms and other meeting spaces, Audio-Technica’s ATND971 boundary mic features simple, inexpensive Ethernet connectivity, outstanding sound quality, a Red/Green LED status indicator and an integrated user switch to control anything from triggering a video camera pan/tilt to a room’s lighting preset and much more. And since Dante can support up to 512 bidirectional audio channels, thismicrophone offers an easily scalable solution. The ATND971 is powered by network PoE.
