Stow, OH (April 17, 2017)—Alteros—Audio-Technica’s new high-end wireless mic company—will debut its GTX Series Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Wireless Microphone System at NAB next week.
A digital 6.5 GHz system, the GTX Series includes the GTX3224 control unit, GTX24 body-pack transmitter and GTX32 transceiver, and supports up to 24 simultaneous, low-latency (< 3ms), uncompanded 48 kHz/24-bit audio channels. In development for seven years, the GTX Series operates beyond the UHF and VHF television bands, requires no frequency coordination, license, database registration or STA.
The GTX3224 simultaneously supports up to 24 channels, an additional 24 channels of talkback audio, and eight group assignment channels in 3U of rack space. The unit features MADI, Dante and AES67 digital outputs that are all available simultaneously and allow for integration with IP-based infrastructures. A single-mode fiber output supports long-distance runs. The 7-inch front-panel touch screen provides access to system settings, monitoring tools, performance reports and other controls.
Up to 32 GTX32 transceivers may be deployed, connecting to the GTX3224 over standard shielded Cat 5 cable, which is operational to 1,000 feet. The GTX24 body-pack transmitter may be purchased on its own, without a microphone, or configured with one of two Audio-Technica subminiature omnidirectional condenser lavalier microphones, the AT899cL4 or AT899cL4SW, the latter equipped with an in-line talkback switch.
