Audio-Technica Expands 3000 Series Wireless With Network Control And Monitoring Option

Audio-Technica announced the expansion of its 3000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless Systems with the addition of a network port, which now allows network control and monitoring.

Expanding on the functionality of the standard 3000 Series Wireless System, Audio-Technica said the new network control and monitoring option allows the 3000 Series to be compatible with the company's Wireless Manager software, a Mac OS/Windows application for remote configuration, control, monitoring, spectrum management and frequency coordination of compatible Audio-Technica devices.

The software package offers a range of control and management functions of networked receivers. It is grouped into three tabs: Device List, which auto-discovers connected compatible A-T hardware and allows users to populate a device list of Audio-Technica and other manufacturer’s wireless systems; Frequency Coordination, which allows real time spectrum scanning or the option of using the pre-loaded television channel database for off-site planning; and Monitor, which allows live monitoring of connected systems with the option of filtering the displayed devices by assigned tag groups.

Parameters monitored include AF, RF, battery and transmit power. The 3000 Series wireless systems give users the power and flexibility to operate within the congested UHF spectrum. With a 60 MHz tuning range, 3000 Series systems are available in two frequency bands – DE2 (470–530 MHz) and EE1 (530–590 MHz).

The 3000 Series with optional network control and monitoring (indicated by an “N” in the model number) will be available February, 2020 in a wide range of preconfigured systems.
