Audio-Technica has bridged the gap between audio and IT with the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data over a Dante™ network.
The new Audio-Technica ATND971 cardioid condenser boundary network microphone is a true plug-and-play solution using the very low latency Dante™ network protocol and because it is a network device with its own IP address it can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
A simple Ethernet connection allows the 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.
Ideal for boardrooms and other meeting spaces, Audio-Technica’s ATND971 boundary mic includes a Red/Green LED to indicate mute status, incoming phone calls or other creative visual effects, and an integrated user switch to control external devices like room lighting, triggering and pan/tilting a video camera, and much more. And since Dante can support up to 512 bidirectional audio channels this microphone offers an easily scalable solution.
