Audio-Technica Introduces Network Receiver For 4th-Generation 3000 Series Wireless Systems

Audio-Technica has announced a new ATW-3211N network-enabled receiver for its 4th-generation 3000 Series wireless systems. The receiver features an Ethernet port, allowing users to configure, monitor and control the system’s components remotely from a computer running Wireless Manager software.

Audio-Technica said the software allows users to exempt certain TV or IEM bands from the initial frequency scan, tailoring the scan to avoid known areas of interference. Once it has identified the cleanest channels, WMS takes into account intermodulation issues, builds a frequency plan and deploys those frequencies to the networked receivers.

During the performance, a monitor page can be used to stay one step ahead of potential problems by viewing RF, AF and the remaining battery life of the transmitters. To accommodate the Ethernet port on the receiver, the company has removed the unbalanced ¼-inch output from the back panel, but the balanced XLR output remains.

Available system configurations feature an ATW-R3210N receiver along with an ATW-T3201 bodypack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter. The ATW-T3201 transmitter comes with either an AT831cH cardioid lavalier mic, a BP892xcH MicroSet omnidirectional headworn mic or a BP892xcH-TH MicroSet omnidirectional headworn mic.

The ATW-T3202 handheld comes with either an ATW-C510 dynamic or ATW-C710 condenser interchangeable cardioid capsule. Its standard thread allows for the use of four additional Audio-Technica capsules or compatible capsules from other manufacturers.
