— A-T’s Dante™ products – ATND971 boundary microphone and ATND8677 desk stand – are now compatible with Biamp® Systems Tesira® v2.3, Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ software v4.3 and Symetrix® SymNet™ Composer v3.0 —

STOW, OH -Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, announces expanded third-party compatibility for its ATND971 Dante™-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand. The ATND971 and ATND8677 are now supported by Biamp® Systems Tesira® v2.3 software and Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ software v4.3, in addition to the previously announced compatibility with Symetrix® SymNet Composer™ v3.0. 

Biamp Systems Tesira software v2.3
Biamp’s Tesira SERVER and SERVER-IO allow for ultimate networking flexibility through the integration of multiple protocols – AVB, CobraNet, and Dante – all within a single system, with the DAN-1 Dante network card. The Dante-based ATND series microphone can be incorporated into a Tesira system, providing quick audio and control signal setup as needed. In addition to normal audio input controls, the integrated processing block allows for predetermined button and LED behaviors, as well as the option to control both completely discretely. Each processing block for the ATND series can accept multiple microphone inputs, so individual units with the same control configuration only need to be configured in Tesira once. A tutorial on configuring Audio-Technica’s Dante microphones for a Tesira system can be found here.

Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ software v4.3
Bose ControlSpace Designer software provides installers the ability to configure, control and monitor audio systems of networkable Bose Professional processors, amplifiers, and Dante endpoints. Version 4.3 of ControlSpace Designer brings new support for the ATND971 Dante-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand for easy integration of Dante audio and control.

Symetrix® SymNet Composer™ software v3.0
Symetrix’ SymNet Composer 3.0 open-architecture design software offers native integration of Audio-Technica’s ATND971 Dante-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand. Version 3.0 has built upon the native support of Audinate's Dante media networking technology for select third-party devices in earlier releases, and extends support of market-leading products thanks to new partnerships with Audio-Technica and others. Users of the Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC, SymNet Radius 12x8 EX and SymNet Edge Dante-scalable DSPs are now able to streamline their configuration procedures and achieve a fully digital networked audio solution.

Audio-Technica’s ATND971 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 ATND971 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.

The ATND8677 Microphone Desk Stand fits gooseneck microphones with standard XLRM-type outputs, offering installers previously unavailable simplicity in adding gooseneck microphones to Dante audio networks.
