Audio-Technica releases new A-T LINK communication protocol

Audio-Technica Corporation is a Japanese company that designs and manufactures professional microphones, headphones, turntables, phonographic magnetic cartridges, and other audio equipment.

Audio-Technica introduces A-T LINK, a proprietary communication protocol for digital interconnection of compatible A-T Commercial Audio microphone and mixing solutions. It transmits uncompressed multi-channel digital audio and control information via category cables with minimal latency. A-T LINK is natively supported by various Audio-Technica products, including microphones and mixers, offering efficient system audio routing and control.

A-T LINK enhances audio connectivity and control in commercial audio installations, such as conference rooms and meeting spaces, by providing a seamless and scalable solution. Its ability to transmit digital audio and control information over standard category cables simplifies installation and operation, while also offering inherent security and power delivery capabilities.

Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 60 years, announces the release of its new A-T LINK proprietary communication protocol for digital interconnection of compatible A-T Commercial Audio microphone and mixing solutions. A-T LINK transmits uncompressed multi-channel digital audio and control information via category cables with minimal latency.

A-T LINK is natively supported by Audio-Technica’s ATND1061LK beamforming ceiling array microphone, providing an ideal solution for conference rooms, boardrooms, and meeting spaces large and small. The ESM-R4180LK receiver in A-T’s award-winning Engineered Sound Wireless System also seamlessly integrates with the A-T LINK protocol, offering simple, smart, and scalable high-quality audio. Digital audio source signals delivered via A-T LINK can be individually assigned to the input channels of A-T 6- or 10-channel Digital SmartMixers®. In addition, the ATDM-1012DAN mixer can bridge A-T LINK audio channels to a Dante® network for interoperability with third-party devices. A-T LINK offers efficient system audio routing and control within the ATDM Mixer Web Remote.

A key advantage of A-T LINK interconnectivity is its ability to power A-T LINK microphone solutions without the need for a power cable, external power supply or a PoE switch. Where necessary, A-T LINK extenders are available to extend the number of downstream devices that can be powered.

A-T LINK is not an internet protocol (AoIP), but it does operate via readily available CAT 5e or better cables. The flexibility and scalability (via daisy-chaining) of A-T LINK make it ideal for any A-T Commercial Audio installation, no matter the size or use case. And because A-T LINK is not a network protocol, it provides an inherently secure independent data chain.
