Audix Announces AVB-Enabled Ceiling Microphones

Audix today announced AVB-enabled models of several of its most popular models, including the M3 tri-element hanging microphone. Since it’s launch in 2014, the M3 has become a widely popular microphone for conferencing solutions. Its patented tri-element design incorporates three-phase coherent hypercardioid capsules with tailored frequency response. The M3 is designed for speech intelligibility and provides a 360-degree coverage pattern up to 20’ in diameter. Its design allows participants to move freely around a space without experiencing any dropouts or changes in volume levels. With the new AVB-enabled models, conferencing, distance learning, courtroom and government applications that utilize AVB transport can deploy up to five M3 tri-element microphones of audio over a single Ethernet cable.

In addition to the AVB-enabled M3, Audix will also offer AVB-enabled models of the M70 flush-mount ceiling microphone with patented cradle that can be aimed and focused up to an angle of 45 degrees toward the sound source. AVB-enabled M40 and M55 single-element hanging ceiling microphone models will also be available.

All four models will begin shipping in Q2 of 2018. Here are the details.
