Singapore, 8th June 2018 – Audio-Technica (Booth 6C2-01, Level 6 Suntec Singapore), a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is exhibiting their newest range of Broadcasting products at the annual BroadcastAsia exhibition from 26th to 28th July. BroadcastAsia is Asia’s must-attend event for professionals and enterprises in the pro-audio, film, digital media and broadcast industries.

 

Here are some new Audio-Technica products to look out for:

 

1. Audio-Technica: 3000 Series Professional UHF Wireless Systems

Providing easy setup, versatile operation and rock-solid, richly detailed high-fidelity sound, A-T’s fourth-generation 3000 Series wireless systems give users the power and flexibility to operate within the congested UHF spectrum. With a class-leading 60 MHz tuning range, which is more than twice that offered by the previous versions, the new 3000 Series systems are available in four frequency bands – DE2 (470–530 MHz), EE1 (530–590 MHz), EF1 (590-650 MHz) and FG1 (650-700 MHz). Frequencies can be easily scanned and selected on the receiver and then synced with the transmitter via IR sync functionality. The 3000 Series even lets users set a backup frequency. Available system configurations feature an ATW-R3210 receiver along with an ATW-T3201 body-pack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter.

Additional features: 

• An auto squelch feature automatically adjusts the squelch setting to maximize operating range while minimizing potential interference. 
• The system’s dual-mode receiver display can switch between standard view or a performance view that highlights key metering. 
• Transmitters and receivers include OLED screens for optimal readout of key settings and alerts. 
• Body-pack transmitter features tactile mute toggle switch (defeatable) for physical confirmation of mute status when transmitter display is not visible. 
• Handheld transmitter offers extremely low handling noise and includes an industry-standard thread for use with interchangeable A-T microphone capsules as well as other compatible capsules. 
• Seven new microphone capsules (based on popular A-T models) are available to give users greater control of their sound.
