Audio Technica ATND971

The Audio Technica ATND971 is a cardioid condenser boundary microphone that features audio and control data together over Audinate’s Dante network. A simple Ethernet connection allows the 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.
