Hanging Microphone Array
The ES954 Hanging Microphone Array, an ideal, cost-effective solution for huddle rooms, conference rooms and other meeting spaces. When controlled by the Audio-Technica ATDM-0604 Digital SMARTMIXER™, the four-capsule microphone array provides 360-degree coverage through virtual hyper-cardioid or cardioid outputs which can be steered horizontally and tilted vertically.
Intended primarily for video conferencing applications, the ES954 may be used singly or in multiples to capture every person speaking in a room, with the total number of channels restricted only by the capacity of the mixer or DSP device controlling the system. When using the ATDM-0604 Digital SMARTMIXER™ the intuitive graphic interface enables control of the width and orientation of each virtual polar pattern, which may be steered in 30-degree increments, with a tilt function accommodating differing ceiling heights or users that are sitting/standing.
The ES954 Hanging Microphone Array features a permanently attached 1.2-meter cable with locking grommet enabling easy microphone height adjustment. UniGuard™ RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI). The package includes a Plenum-rated AT8554 Ceiling Mount with RJ45 connectors and push-type wire terminals for simple, secure installation. The ES954 connects to the mixer over a pair of standard Cat 5 cables. Two RJ45 breakout cables are provided to input the four channels, plus an LED tally, into the mixer. An integral, logic-controlled 360-degree red/green LED ring provides clear indication of the array’s mute status.
