AUDIO-TECHNICA SHOWS UHF ANTENNAS AND DISTRIBUTION
SYSTEMS AS PART OF EXPANDED WIRELESS ACCESSORIES LINE
NAMM WINTER SESSION, ANAHEIM, CA, January 15, 2004
— Audio-Technica is displaying new UHF antennas and
UHF distribution systems at this Winter NAMM Show. Designed
to work with Audio-Technica’s 5000 and 4000 Artist
Elite® Series Wireless Systems as well as other manufacturers’
wireless systems, these new accessories are specifically
engineered to enhance wireless reception in challenging
RF environments. The ongoing development of new UHF antennas
and UHF distribution systems further emphasizes Audio-Technica’s
commitment to supplying high-quality products for all segments
of the wireless market.
The AEW-DA550C and AEW-DA660D UHF Antenna
Distribution Systems (operating in the 540-565 MHz and 655-680
MHz ranges respectively) are active unity-gain antenna distribution
systems providing two 1-in, 4-out RF channels for connecting
a pair of antennas to as many as four diversity receivers.
A cascade output is provided as a directional coupler to
drive additional distribution amps. The unit also features
defeatable antenna power and AC pass-through capability
that allows daisy-chain AC hookup. The rugged metal chassis
mounts in a single 19" rack space, and has reinforced
mounting ears and rear rack-mount capability. Both models
include a detachable IEC power cable, IEC pass-through cable,
ten RF cables, and front-mount antenna cables and connectors
for easy system integration. Also included are four DC power
cables to power up to four Audio-Technica 3000 Series receivers.
The ATW-A49 UHF Wideband Directional Log Periodic
Dipole Array (LPDA) antennas
have also been added to the growing line of A-T wireless
accessories. Operating in the
440-900 MHz range, the ATW-A49 provides enhanced signal
pickup, 6 dB gain, and comes standard with 5/8-inch-27 thread
mounting hardware for permanent wall-mount installation
or attaching to a microphone stand. Further, each paddle
is matched to 50 ohms impedance with an integral high-quality
low-loss BNC connector.
The new Audio-Technica AEW-DA550C and AEW-DA660D
UHF Antenna Distribution Systems and the ATW-A49 UHF Wideband
Directional Log Periodic Dipole Array are currently available
with respective MSRPs of $959.00 and $398.00.
