Audio-Technica has bridged the gap between audio and IT with the first wired microphones that transmit audio and control data together over the Dante network protocol. A simple Ethernet connection allows the Network Microphone to communicate across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices and, with the mic’s integrated, programmable user switch, control any of those devices at the push of a button.
Dante networking technology has become the standard in the professional audio industry. A true plug-and-play solution, Dante uses standard Internet protocols to distribute digital audio and control data with very low latency. Network Microphones exploit Dante’s advantages to provide a powerful audio solution that’s easy to implement, use and expand.
A perfect fit for boardrooms and other meeting spaces, Network Microphones feature simple, inexpensive Ethernet connectivity, outstanding sound quality, a Red/Green LED status indicator and an integrated user switch to control anything from triggering a video camera pan/tilt to a room’s lighting preset and much more. And since Dante can support up to 512 bidirectional audio channels, Network Microphones offer an easily scalable solution.
A true audio/IT convergence, the ATND971a boundary mic not only delivers the superior audio you would expect from Audio-Technica, with outstanding speech intelligibility and transparent sound quality, but it also transmits control data to communicate across a network of Dante-enabled devices. The integrated programmable user switch allows users to trigger a video camera’s pan/tilt, recall lighting presets or control anything else on the network at the push of a button. And with a Red/Green LED the microphone can visually convey mute status, incoming phone calls or other creative visual effects utilizing a control system. The microphone plugs into the network via Ethernet cable – easy to install and operate.
This latest “a” version also offers plug-and-play compatibility with AES67 networks, including those that utilize Livewire, RAVENNA and Q-LAN AoIP technologies, and increases the Dante Domain Manager features, adding role-based security, cross-subnet routing, SNMP alerts and more.
Dante™ technology has become the standard in the professional audio sector. The real plug-and-play solution, Dante™ uses standard Internet protocols to deliver digital audio and control data with very low latency. The ATND971a exploits the benefits Dante™ to provide a high-performance audio solution, easy to implement, use and extend.
Ideally suited to boardrooms and meeting spaces, network microphones have a simple Ethernet connectivity, are inexpensive, and boast a remarkable sound quality. Dante™ can support up to 512 channels of bidirectional audio, the network microphones offer a solution that can easily be extended.
Powered directly by the network cable, the ATND971a can also be used to transmit control data in a Dante™ networking device. Its programmable switch can be used to trigger the rotation / tilt the video camera, recall the lighting presets or to control anything else on the network.
The ATND971a 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.
For decades the Engineered Sound range of microphones have been industry favourites in the fixed installation market. To reinforce their position as go-to microphones for your installation project Audio-Technica is delighted to offer a five year warranty on all Engineered Sound microphones as well as the full range of dante-enabled network audio microphones including the ATND971 and ATND8677*.
