Audio-Technica introduces dual-channel camera-mount wireless system at NAB2007
Audio-Technica used NAB2007 as a platform to show its new 1800 Series, spotlighting a new dual-channel, camera-mount UHF system offering 996 user-selectable frequencies. Designed for those needing simultaneous operation of two microphones, the dual-channel 1800 Series wireless systems include the ATW-R1820 dual receiver, which features two independent diversity receiver channels.
Ergonomically designed, the receiver features two balanced outputs, enabling signals to be mixed or independently assigned to each output. Independent audio level controls provide flexible audio mixing and monitoring.
The 1800 Series comes equipped with a choice of body-pack and plug-on transmitters. The ATW-T1801 UniPak body-pack transmitters feature a locking four-pin connector compatible with all Audio-Technica Wireless Essentials microphones. The ATW-T1802 plug-on transmitters feature a locking XLR connector for adapting dynamic and condenser microphones. Both use two AA batteries and offer selectable high and low transmission modes to conserve battery life while maximizing power.
Additional 1800 Series features include true diversity operation, automatic frequency scanning, tone lock squelch, back-lit LCD, soft-touch buttons, headphone monitor output with independent level control and durable metal construction. System components of the 1800 Series and 3000 Series wireless systems can be used interchangeably depending on frequency selection. For users requiring the same performance in a single-channel version, Audio-Technica offers a single-channel version as well.
