Audio-Technica announces AT-One wireless system
Audio-Technica is about to launch AT-One, its new UHF wireless system.
Meant to provide a simple, easy to use solution for installers, performers and presenters seeking a fuss-free wireless set-up, it ships with a carrying case, rack-mount kit and detachable antenna.
The AT-One’s frequency plan is divided into two groups, with four available channels in each group split between the Europe-wide license-free frequency range and the LTE duplex gap. Users can choose up to four channels from one group. This arrangement allows installers to run two four-channel AT-One systems (using separate groups) in close proximity without the fear of interference, for example.
Available in three configurations, AT-One can be purchased with a beltpack or handheld transmitter, or with beltpack and ATR35cW lavalier microphone.
The beltpack offers a sturdy and discreetly designed construction, providing 10mW RF output power, damping switch and a battery life of up to 10 hours.
The ATW-13F handheld system features the ATW-T3F cardioid condenser handheld transmitter, again with 10mW RF output and up to 10 hours battery life. The ATW-13F’s condenser handheld microphone’s capsule was designed in order to help prevent the possibility of feedback when used in venues with induction loops installed.
Finally, the ATW-11/PF lavalier system comprises the ATW-11F beltpack system with included ATR35cW tie-clip microphone.
Pricing for each configuration is as follows:
- ATW-11F Beltpack System - £169.00/€219.00
- ATW-13F Handheld System - £174.00/€239.00
- ATW-11/PF Lavalier System - £205.00/€269.00
- ATW-T1F Beltpack Transmitter - £65.00/€89.00
- ATW-T3F Handheld Transmitter - £80.00/€109.00
- AT8677 Dual Rackmount Kit - £14.00/€19.00.
AT-One will be available in early November 2015.
