FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUDIO-TECHNICA EXPANDS SPECTRAPULSE®
MTU201 WIRELESS XLR DESK STAND TRANSMITTER
— Transmitter optimized to work with any of A-T’s Engineered
Sound® gooseneck mics —
STOW, OH, November 20, 2008 — Audio-Technica,
a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 45 years, expands
its award-winning SpectraPulse® Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless microphone
system with the mtu201 XLR Desk Stand Transmitter. The mtu201 is optimized
to work with any of Audio-Technica’s 29 Engineered Sound®
gooseneck microphones with 3-pin XLRM-type output, ideal for such applications
as podiums, boardroom tables and other situations where a gooseneck
is preferred over a boundary-type mic. The mtu201 provides phantom power
to the microphone and features a programmable touch-sensitive switch
(for push-to-talk, push-to-mute or toggle operation) and 9-hour rechargeable
battery life. A completely new application of UWB technology, SpectraPulse
bypasses the increasingly congested RF environment to deliver clear,
intelligible, secure audio without the performance and setup issues
associated with conventional wireless systems.
The mtu201 XLR Desk Stand Transmitter has already been
part of a high-profile event, as it was paired with A-T’s ES935ML
Engineered Sound gooseneck microphone at the third 2008 presidential
debate, televised live October 15 from Hofstra University in Hempstead,
NY. The mtu201 was mounted within the conversation table in front of
each candidate to pick up their audio and transmit it securely, via
patented UWB technology, with no interference.
Audio-Technica’s mtu201 XLR Desk Stand Transmitter
is available in December 2008 with a U.S. MSRP of $1,300.00. For more
