Audio-Technica launches re-engineered UniPoint series

Audio-Technica's installation microphone series, UniPoint, has been completely re-engineered, utilising latest audio and mechanical design improvements, to set new standards for signal quality, reliability, and ease of installation. Launched in 2001, the original full-line miniaturized, condenser range of installation sound microphones, UniPoint is established within the commercial audio and AV integrator sectors. Comprising over 30 gooseneck mounted, boundary and hanging models, UniPoint is designed a the wide range of applications, in corporate, institutional, civic and religious installations, including sound reinforcement, broadcast and recording.
New features for the A-T UniPoint Series include UniGuard RFI-shielding innovations for immunity from radio frequency interference, new interchangeable condenser elements (cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine line cardioid), superior off-axis rejection for improved gain before feedback, 80 Hz UniSteep filter for removal of unwanted low frequencies without affecting vocal quality, two-stage foam windscreen for improved resistance to P-pops and other breath blasts.
The new UniPoint podium microphones offer UniGuard RFI-shielding technology, and an improved, easy-to-adjust gooseneck with virtually no "memory", permitting quick positioning into desired shape. The gooseneck's robust design also resists inadvertent repositioning. Clear, high-output performance is assured by new interchangeable condenser elements available in four pickup patterns: cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and the new UniLine line cardioid with its tight 90 pickup pattern.
The next-generation UniPoint boundary microphones are engineered for maximum flexibility; most models incorporate Audio-Technica's new PivotPoint rotating output connector that allows the cable to exit from either the rear or the bottom of the microphone. The U891R, U891RW and U891RC boundary mics feature programmable switching plus an LED status indicator for a high level of control flexibility in conference and boardroom applications.
The latest UniPoint hanging microphones are designed for suspension over choirs, instrumental groups and theater stages. The hanging microphones feature a low-profile design, available in black or white. New interchangeable capsules (cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine) offer improved on-axis pickup.
The UniPoint U873R handheld hypercardioid microphone utilizes the newest low-mass condenser technology, for superior performance and smooth, accurate vocal reproduction. Interchangeable elements (cardioid and omnidirectional) are also available, permitting selection of polar pattern. The U873R provides improved on-axis response, resulting in extraordinary sonic quality and maximum off-axis rejection for outstanding gain before feedback. Its special internal shock mounting eliminates handling and cable noise.
