AUDIO-TECHNICA ENHANCES ENGINEERED SOUND® PRODUCT
LINE WITH NEW CONTRACTOR PROGRAM
— Company extends value of Engineered Sound® products for
contractors and end users with new five-year warranty, plus new freight
options and extended terms for E.S. dealers —
STOW, OH, August 3, 2009 — As part of
its ongoing commitment to the contractor/system integrator market sector,
Audio-Technica, known worldwide as a leading producer of precision audio
transducers and related items for over 45 years, announces that it is
offering Engineered Sound contractors a new program for its Engineered
Sound® product line. As part of this initiative, Audio-Technica
is offering new freight options and extended terms; the company has
also expanded the warranty on its entire range of Engineered Sound products
to five years.
The Audio-Technica Engineered Sound line is available
only to the professional installed sound market via a network of specialized
sound contractors and system integrators, as opposed to retail outlets.
The Engineered Sound line builds on A-T’s commitment to offering
the fixed installation/sound contracting market the highest performance
products, featuring RoHS compliance, full UniGuard® RFI immunity
and the ability to meet international specifications.
Since their introduction, Engineered
Sound microphones and accessories have been the first choice of
leading contractors and system integrators for installation in churches,
boardrooms and government meeting rooms, courtrooms, distance-learning
facilities and other corporate installations. This contractor-exclusive
line includes a wide assortment of UniGuard RFI-protected gooseneck,
hanging, boundary, lavalier and handheld microphones.
The Engineered Sound line also includes Audio-Technica’s
recently introduced ATCS-60
Infrared Conference System. The ATCS-60 is a fully self-contained
wireless distributed audio system using infrared communications technology,
designed for corporate, government and educational applications. Additionally,
the Engineered Sound line also includes the industry’s first-ever
ultra wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system, Audio-Technica’s
UWB Wireless Microphone System. Unlike traditional FM carrier-based
systems, the award-winning SpectraPulse System offers 14 simultaneous
channels that operate flawlessly without RF turf wars, “white
space” issues, frequency hunting/coordination or interference.
Tom George, the Director of Installations at Eighth Day
Sound Systems, based out of Highland Heights, Ohio, stated, “Sound
contracting products need to be extremely durable – basically
bulletproof – since in most cases, an installation requires that
they work for months or years on end. Audio-Technica’s Engineered
Sound products always meet these demands in a major way, and the new
extended warranty underscores Audio-Technica’s reliability and
commitment to the fixed installation markets. This is why I continue
to spec Audio-Technica for critical installations in boardrooms, corporate
facilities and houses of worship.”
“Our new programs for the contractor-only Engineered
Sound product line will benefit our E.S. dealers and end-users alike,”
stated Greg Pinto, Audio-Technica VP of Marketing. “Extending
the warranty on E.S. products to 5-years reflects the confidence the
marketplace has in Audio-Technica products, while extending terms and
freight programs show our commitment to solving the day-to-day difficulties
faced by contractors and integrators in these difficult economic times.
It’s a winning combination for everyone.”
