Product Description


Audio-Technica’s ATND971 Cardioid Condenser Boundary Network Microphone 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 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.

  • Digital Microphone Ethernet compatible with Dante™ – an innovation by Audio-Technica

  • Connects directly to the network via an Ethernet cable – no need for costly audio cable or soldering.

  • The integrated switch enables the microphone to communicate with – and control – other compatible devices in a Dante™network

  • Local or remote control of the microphone gain, low cut filter and LED (red / green)

  • Features UniGuard® RFI-shielding technology and UniSteep® low-cut filter.

  • Network-powered (PoE IEEE802.3af)

  • Scalable thanks to Dante’s™ 512 audio bidirectional channels.

  • Product made in Japan. 5 year guarantee
