Audio-Technica ATW-1702 Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Audio-Technica System 10 ATW-1702 is a digital wireless microphone system specifically engineered to meet the audio needs of vloggers, mobile journalists, and videographers. It provides an easy-to-operate solution with sophisticated technology to ensure reliability and high-quality audio for projects ranging from YouTube and wedding videos to corporate spots and interviews.

The ATW-1702 features a dynamic handheld transmitter/microphone with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for man-on-the-street interviews in noisy environments, along with a camera-mount receiver that connects to your DSLR or mirrorless camera via the included 3.5mm output cable. It operates anywhere in the world, transmitting 24-bit/48 kHz audio in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, well away from potential TV and radio interference.

This peer-to-peer system delivers three levels of diversity assurance—frequency, time, and space—for optimal performance at a range up to 100'. Just power up the components, and the receiver automatically seeks out a clean frequency and pairs up with the transmitter, saving you the hassle of scanning and syncing before a shoot. Up to eight wireless mics may be used on set at once.

Triple Diversity Technology for Reliable Performance
  • Space Diversity: The receiver compares the signal showing up at its two antennas and chooses the strongest one.
  • Time Diversity: The transmitter sends the digital signal in two imperceptibly different time slots and compares the two.
  • Frequency Diversity: The digital audio is sent over two different frequencies at the same time and the system chooses the cleaner one.
  • For optimal performance, users are encouraged to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver.
Rich with Features and Ready for Action
  • The ATW-T1002 dynamic handheld microphone delivers a natural, broadcast-quality sound optimized for speech intelligibility. Its hypercardioid polar pattern helps to reject unwanted background sound, making it ideal in loud environments such as trade-show floors, busy public areas, or sporting events.
  • The output level on the receiver can be reduced by 10 or 20 dB if you find you're overloading the input to your camera or recording device. The 3.5mm output can be switched to deliver either a balanced or unbalanced signal.
  • Both the transmitter and receiver are housed in lightweight, plastic chassis. The included shoemount allows you to easily mount the receiver to your camera.
  • With just a quick press, the power switch on the transmitter doubles as a mute function. This function can be locked out to prevent an accident.
  • Conveniently, the receiver's LCD display shows critical information for the receiver as well as the transmitter—including battery status, signal level, mute status, and channel selection for both units.
  • An additional 3.5mm output on the receiver allows you to monitor your signal while recording—helpful if your camera doesn't offer a headphone jack.
  • The receiver features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 12 hours of operation. Using the included power adapter, the battery can be recharged via USB in about 4.5 hours, while in operation.
  • On the transmitter's end, power is supplied by two AA batteries, giving you up to 7 hours of shooting time depending on battery type and usage.
  • With this peer-to-peer system, you can only use one transmitter and one receiver at once. However, up to 8 transmitters can be paired with the receiver ahead of time. This is useful in situations when you have multiple speakers, one after another, and you need to have them miked up and ready to go. All you'll have to do is turn one transmitter off and the next one on.
  • For hands-free interviews, you can add an MT830cW omni lavalier mic with an ATW-T1001 bodypack transmitter to your system.

question

Can I pair this mic with the system 10 lavalier receivers?
Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question. You can use up to 8 systems in an ideal environment. the receiver can only operate on a single transmitter at a time so you would need 8 full systems to mic up 8 people.

Can I link the transmitter (handheld) with TWO ...

Can I link the transmitter (handheld) with TWO recievers simultaneously (to receive signal at both camera and DJ positions)?
Asked by: Chris
My understanding was that the System 10 can only be paired to one transmitter/receiver combo. Please see the answer by Anthony and correct one response. (Anthony and David cannot both be right- I believe)
