Audio-Technica Exhibits New Engineered Sound® Wireless system

by | Gear, Production

Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 60 years, is introducing its Engineered Sound® Wireless system, a recent addition to its range of commercial audio products. The new Engineered Sound Wireless system was created in response to the increasing demand for wireless microphone solutions for video- and web-conferencing. Audio-Technica’s Engineered Sound Wireless system is a DECT-based wireless solution that offers simple, smart, and scalable high-quality audio. This system addresses many challenges of conventional wireless microphones, such as frequency coordination and the limited number of available microphone channels.

Operation is incredibly easy for end users, with microphones ready to use by simply removing them from the charging station. At full charge, the batteries offer best in class all-day operation. Installation is also made easy using PoE to power the receiver(s) and Dante audio outputs. System integrators can configure detailed settings to meet a wide variety of end-user needs via Audio-Technica’s Wireless Manager software, which is capable of managing multiple wireless systems, including UHF wireless systems, from a single screen. The Engineered Sound Wireless System is scalable up to 96 channels with wiring as simple as connecting a single Cat 5e cable per receiver to a PoE network switch. In addition, AES256 encryption comes standard, providing superior security.

The new system is composed of the ESW-R4180DAN 8-channel Dante®-enabled receiver and a choice of four transmitters to suit a wide variety of applications – the ESW-T4101 bodypack with a built-in microphone, ESW-T4102/C510 handheld, ESW-T4106 boundary microphone, and ESW-T4107 desk stand.

The transmitter options each feature lithium-ion batteries for all-day operation on a single charge – – charging stations are available using the ESW-CHG4 two-bay body-pack and handheld charging station and the ESW-CHG5 four-bay desk stand and boundary charging station. The charging stations provide full power recharge in as little as two hours and multiple units can be linked (up to four ESW-CHG4 or two ESW-CHG5) with one AC adaptor and Cat 5e cable.
