SHORT SHOTGUN MICROPHONE
— The AT897 high-performance shotgun stays out of
the frame of wide shots
when mounted on today’s DV camcorders —
NAMM WINTER SESSION, ANAHEIM, CA, January 15, 2004 —
Audio-Technica is exhibiting the AT897 Line + Gradient Condenser
Microphone, the latest offering in its extensive range of
shotgun microphones. Designed for film/TV/video production,
professional recording, and broadcast applications, the
new AT897 is a short shotgun microphone intended to capture
high-quality field audio in the most demanding situations.
Its light weight and compact 11-inch length enable the AT897
to conveniently mount on a DV camcorder without adding noticeable
heft, while remaining out of the frame on wide shots.
The AT897 condenser element features excellent
on-axis response, while its Line + Gradient polar pattern
provides exceptional sound rejection from the sides and
rear of the mic. Operating on an internal battery (AA) or
phantom power (9-48V, 2 mA), the rugged and lightweight
AT897 is competitively priced, includes an integral low-frequency
roll-off switch for reduced pick-up of unwanted sounds,
and comes complete with a foam windscreen and stand adapter.
The AT897 microphone is currently available
with an MSRP of $369.00.
