Audio-Technica has announced that Symetrix’s newly-released SymNet Composer 3.0 open-architecture design software offers native integration of Audio-Technica’s ATND971 Dante-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand.
Version 3.0 has built upon the native support of Audinate’s Dante media networking technology for select third-party devices in earlier releases, and extends support of market-leading products thanks to new partnerships with Audio-Technica and others. Users of the Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC, Radius 12×8 EX and Edge Dante-scalable DSPs are now able to streamline their configuration procedures and achieve network discovery, Dante signal routing, and audio setup of supported Audio-Technica devices.
Launched at the InfoComm Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, Audio-Technica’s ATND971 bridges the gap between audio and IT as the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data together over Audinate’s Dante network protocol. 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.
Also integrated with Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0, the ATND8677 Microphone Desk Stand fits gooseneck microphones with standard XLRM-type outputs, offering installers previously unavailable simplicity in adding gooseneck microphones to Dante audio networks. All of the tech details are here.
