Audio-Technica expands their network mic offering at ISE 2017
The company’s complete ATUC-50 digital discussion system was also on display for the first time – with a variety of seminars on the ATUC-50 and general microphone specification and deployment occurring during the show.
The ATND931 Dante six-inch gooseneck microphone and ATND933 Dante hanging microphone are both available in a number of configurations, including black and white colour options and a selection of three polar patterns (cardioid, hypercardioid and MicroLine). All configurations come standard with the new ATND8734 ceiling-mount power module with Dante network output, offering a solution for integrating these new microphones with a Dante network without the need for a separate, standalone audio interface.
The ATND8734 comes equipped with an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep filter, selectable for a flat response or low-frequency roll-off, as well as a three-position input gain level selector (+30 dB, +40 dB, and +50 dB) and green/red LEDs. All features may be configured and controlled remotely via third-party software.
ISE 2017 also represented the first showing of Audio-Technica’s complete ATUC-50 digital discussion system with the recently introduced ATUC-50INT interpretation unit. The ATUC-50INT received its first showing at ISE at the Audio-Technica booth.
Audio-Technica also hosted a seminar focused on the ATUC-50 on Friday 10 February. The seminar provided an introduction and guide to easy set-up, programming and system integration for integrators, end-users and distributors.
In addition, Audio-Technica technical director Zsolt Zold hosted two seminars as part of the InfoComm FlashTrack programme on Wednesday 8 February. The seminars dealt with microphone choice, performance and positioning for conference environments.

ETC exhibits at ISE 2017
Integrated Systems Europe, often referred to as ISE, is the largest AV systems integration show in the world. In 2017, the annual four-day event takes place from 7th February to the 10th February at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam.
ETC’s booth at ISE 2017 will be packed with lighting solutions designed to meet the diverse needs of any installation. ETC employees will be on hand to answer your questions, discuss your project requirements, and demonstrate a selection of equipment, including:
Designed as a new way of thinking about building control, ETC’s visionary Unison Paradigm® system fuses architectural lighting control advances with entertainment lighting-control technology. ETC brings its award-winning expertise in both areas together to give you the best of both worlds.
Paradigm delivers a new level of comprehensive control – sophisticated facility-lighting and building systems integration. And it does so with unprecedented flexibility and simplicity: a green-minded energy management system that capitalises on daylight-harvesting, occupancy sensing and time schedules for maximum electricity and budget savings, combined with a deep library of lighting fixtures (LEDs, moving lights, and more) for dynamic effects, plus the power to speak fluently to different devices from different manufacturers over the same control system.
The Unison Paradigm family of products includes powerful software, elegant touchscreens, wall stations, modular control electronics, dimming and control enclosures, and accessories to offer the most customisable and people-friendly control systems available. Paradigm addresses the whole space – bringing the beauty of well-controlled light in line with today’s environmental concerns and real-life needs. Restaurants, hotels, casinos, schools and universities, museums, houses of worship, office buildings, and conference centres – Paradigm scales to all.
Making its international debut at ISE is the new portable version of the popular Irideon FPZ luminaire. The fixture pairs the best of ETC’s popular Source Four® Mini LED platform with exceptional output, flexible zoom optics and a sleek industrial design to light your space with elegance and subtlety. Available for use with Eutrac® three-circuit track with data, the feature-rich design is perfect for museums, lobbies, and retail environments.
Irideon FPZ boasts its own set of enhancements such as lockable 3-plane shutters, zoom optics, and the ability to dim using either remote DMX control or a local dimming knob located on the track adapter. FPZ puts out over 800 field lumens, with a wide selection of colour temperatures. This luminaire is fully convection cooled for fan-less operation and is available is a variety of colours, including custom options.
FPZ gives you the versatility you need to create the beautiful light you want from an integrated, unassuming design that won’t dominate your space.
To assimilate all of the different devices that a lighting system requires, ETC offers a range of networking solutions that ensure problem-free installation and smooth operations.
ETC pioneered Ethernet-based networking in entertainment-lighting systems, with the power to transmit DMX, video and remote-focus data on a single wire. ETC’s Net3 suite, powered by ACN (Architecture for Control Networks), goes beyond that, providing an open network with the highest degree of reliability and streamlined system control for greater flexibility and efficiency. And with the company’s leadership in the development of the ANSI standard for ACN, it continues to innovate in entertainment and architectural control using Ethernet-based protocols.
The ColorSource family of products was developed for those with limited budgets who want a complete, high-quality LED lighting system with plug-and-play setup. The newest additions to the ColorSource family are the portable ColorSource control desks, which are available in two sizes with optional audio visual capability, and provide hands-on control with the ability to run effects, mix LED colours, control moving lights and play back cues – all with the flick of a fader. The ColorSource® Relay can wirelessly switch power and transmit DMX and RDM to hard-to-reach places. And the ColorSource® Spot, ColorSource® Linear and ColorSource® PAR luminaires can create bright light with the broadest colour gamut possible from a four-colour LED, thanks to their unique RGB-Lime emitter mix.
The Gio @5 lighting control console, brings the acclaimed, professional-grade control of the Eos Ti® and Gio® consoles within reach of users with tighter spaces – and tighter budgets.
This portable console packs all the control necessities into a compact footprint, so external monitors and accessories are optional. With an articulating, 17-inch, multi-touch LCD display, five definable and page-able motorised faders and a master fader pair, Gio @5 is the perfect step up for Ion® users who want expanded hands-on access to playbacks, colour control, touchscreen Magic Sheets and more.
The console features the same full-function, backlit keyboard as the Eos Programming Wing and Gio console, providing an easy transition for experienced Eos users looking for a smaller desk – and a good platform for new programmers looking to gain professional skills that scale up.
