YBLTV Meets Up With Audio-Technica at NAB 2018
Audio-Technica Marketing Director, Gary Boss, Shows us their ATH-M60x, System 10 Camera-Mount and More
As equipment previously used only by professionals is becoming more readily available to the consumer and novice, constant technical innovation is key in maintaining relationships with both markets. Audio-Technica proves that developing their products to suit the professionals and be accessible to the novice has its payoffs.
A maker of premium headphones for decades, Audio-Technica is getting a lot of attention with their professional series headphones Specifically, their new on-ear low profile device the ATH-M60x, which won a Videomaker Best of NAB 2018 at this month’s NAB Show. These new headphones feature memory foam pads and 3 different length and style cables that detach, which has become a must-have feature for those who invest in headphones.
Whether you are a professional on-camera journalist or a new breed of multimedia journalist doing it all on your own, capturing media via a wireless system is within your grasp thanks to Audio-Technica. Their System 10 Camera-Mount high-fidelity digital wireless system features various mounting options for your camcorder, DSLR or iPad/iPhone rig. It offers a headphone port for monitoring, and selectable balanced and unbalanced output jacks, plus an optional mini to XLR cable. It can also be piggybacked with a dual mount system that will give you 2 distinct channels for post-production.
The device operates in the 2.4 GHz range which means that it is free from TV interference, and while that is the same range as WiFi, the real magic in this product is that when it is turned on, it scans for the best frequencies, and if it later comes across any interference, it will switch immediately on its own. While it is handling the brunt of the work here, it still provides its digital 24-bit/48kHz wireless operation, giving you optimum sound quality in a reliable package.
Audio-Technica’s innovation means products are doing more and serving you better, so that you can concentrate on your own capabilities and find ways to push your own creative limits.
