FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Audio-Technica’s Dante™-Enabled Products Compatible
with Symetrix’ Newly-Released SymNet Composer 3.0


STOW, OH, January 7, 2015 Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, has announced that Symetrix’ newly-released SymNet Composer 3.0 open-architecture design software offers native integration of Audio-Technica’s ATND971 Dante™-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand.

Version 3.0 has built upon the native support of Audinate's Dante media networking technology for select third-party devices in earlier releases, and extends support of market-leading products thanks to new partnerships with Audio-Technica and others. Users of the Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC, Radius 12x8 EX and Edge Dante-scalable DSPs are now able to streamline their configuration procedures and achieve network discovery, Dante signal routing, and audio setup of supported Audio-Technica devices.

Launched at the InfoComm Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, Audio-Technica’s ATND971 bridges the gap between audio and IT as the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data together over Audinate’s Dante network protocol. A simple Ethernet connection allows the ATND971 network microphone to communicate across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices and, with the microphone’s programmable user switch, control any of those devices at the push of a button.

Gary Dixon, sales engineer, installed sound at Audio-Technica U.S., remarks, “The ATND series and Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0 software provide a knowledgeable and creative AV integrator infinite possibilities for system design. The goal of Symetrix and Audio-Technica working together is to provide more options for control and connectivity, allowing for more profit opportunities for our AV integrators. The ATND series and SymNet Composer software transform the traditional tabletop microphone into a Dante networked audio user interface that can be customized by the AV integrator.”

Also integrated with Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0, the ATND8677 Microphone Desk Stand fits gooseneck microphones with standard XLRM-type outputs, offering installers previously unavailable simplicity in adding gooseneck microphones to Dante audio networks.
