Audio-Technica's ATND971 Cardioid Condenser Boundary Network Microphone 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 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.
Dante™ technology has become the standard in the professional audio sector. A true plug-and-play solition, Dante™ uses standard internet protocols to distribute digital audio and control data with very low latency. The ATND971 exploits the advantages of Dante™ to provide a high-performance audio system, easy to set up, to use and to extend.
Ideally suited to boardrooms and meeting spaces, network microphones have simple Ethernet connectivity, are inexpensive, and have remarkable sound quality. The Dante™ system can support up to 512 channels of bidirectional audio; these network microphones offer a solution that can easily be extended.
Powered straight from the network cable, the ATND971 also allows data to be transmitted in a peripheral Dante™ network. In fact its programmable switch allows to trigger the rotation / tilt of a video camera, to recall the lighting presets or to control anything else on the network.
The ATND971 surface microphone is powered directly from the network, via its PoE (Power Over Ethernet) port.

Founded in 1962 by Hideo Matsushita, Audio-Technica positioned itself immediately as a leader in the manufacture and design of innovative audio products.
Its expertise in innovation quickly spread to various new fields and led to the development of tone arms, microphones and headphones. Audio-Technica soon became a benchmark in those fields. Making history.
A self-made man and audiophile, Hidéo Matsushita was the former Director of the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art. It all started in his workshop, with the hand crafting of stereo cartridges. 50 years later, Audio-Technica has become a global leader in audio innovation.
Humility, passion, creativity and expertise in sound are the core values behind Audio-Technica’s legacy, greatly inspired by its founder - whose imprint on the company’s philosophy is still felt today.
Audio-Technica’s passion for listening evolved in the 70’s, when it started designing headphones, building upon a legacy in innovation, meticulous engineering and artistic design.
Today, Audio-Technica’s audio products have become globally synonymous with consistently high sonic performance paired with impeccable build construction and artistic design.
