Audio-Technica adds Dante equipped mic stand

AUTHOR: Inavate

Audio-Technica launched a Dante-equipped Microphone Desk stand at InfoComm MEA in Dubai.

The ATND8677 follows on from the ATND971 Network Boundary Microphone, launched earlier in the year.

It allows installers to add gooseneck microphones to Dante networks with GPIO-over-Dante enabled control without the need for analogue audio and control cabling.

The stand adds an ‘on-stand’ switch and indicator and connects directly to the audio network via standardRJ-45 connector and structured cabling.

It will also work natively with both Symetrix and Biamp control software as both manufacturers support the Dante GPIO feature.

The unit features a capacitive switch with a green/red LED light switch surround, 80Hz/80dB low cut filter, switchable gain (+30dB/+40dB/+50dB), phantom power and selectable toggle/momentary switch operation.
