Audio-Technica expands its Engineered Sound line with the introduction of the ES963 Three-Element Multidirectional Boundary Microphone.

The ES963 is designed for surface-mount applications such as sound reinforcement, conferencing, professional recording, television and other sound pickup applications in the installed sound and sound contracting markets. The microphone is designed to provide coverage of large table areas.

Three cardioid condenser elements mounted in the microphone housing are factory set with an angle of 120 degrees between them to provide complete 360-degree coverage (in the hemisphere above mounting surface). Two positioning levers on the microphone base allow two of the three elements to be reoriented (with no tools or disassembly required) to offer angles of 90/90/180 degrees between elements – for positioning at the end of long conference tables, for example.

For example, with two elements powered, the microphone can provide a figure-of-eight polar pattern; with a single element powered, the microphone functions as a cardioid boundary microphone.  Four indented recessed pathways on the base of the ES963 enable the user to route the cable as required to accommodate any installation requirements; no tools or disassembly are needed.

The ES963 includes a 7.5-meter (24.6-foot) attached output cable. It’s free end is unterminated stripped and tinned pigtails, giving the installer flexibility in interfacing with a variety of equipment, according to the manufacturer.

The ES963 is equipped with UniGuard RFI-shielding technology, which offers rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The microphone requires 11V to 52V DC phantom power for operation. Elements can be powered and used individually, or in any combination. The ES963’s silicon foam bottom pads are designed to minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone. The microphone features a low-profile design and a low-reflectance black finish, and comes equipped with a soft protective pouch. Output is low impedance (Lo-Z balanced).

Pricing & Availability
Audio-Technica’s ES963 Three-Element Multidirectional Boundary Microphone will be available summer 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of $495.00.

As with all Audio-Technica Engineered Sound products, the ES963 comes with a five-year warranty.
