Audio-Technica AT897 overview

  • 1Description

This Audio Technica AT897 shotgun microphone kit is available exclusively through B&H. The kit consists of the Audio Technica AT897 shotgun microphone, universal shockmount and XLR to 1/8" mini cable for connecting to mini inputs on consumer video gear, portable recorders, etc.

The Audio Technica AT897 is a short shotgun condenser microphone designed for audio capturing in video and broadcast applications. The microphone's unobtrusive length of 11" (279.40mm) ensures that the microphone remains out of the frame when mounted on compact, consumer video cameras.

The microphone's narrow pick up pattern enhances signal reproduction when capturing audio at long range. Excellent off-axis sound rejection minimizes noise and ambiance, emphasizing the desired signal. A wide frequency response provides accurate sound reproduction of signals registering at various frequencies. A low-cut frequency switch eliminates noise and hum registering at the low frequency range. The microphone operates on a single 1.5V AA battery or 11V - 52V phantom power.

  • Audio-Technica AT897 Line and Gradient Condenser Microphone

    The AT897 Line and Gradient Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica is a short shotgun condenser microphone that has a low-cut filter and operates on battery or phantom power. It can be used to capture audio in various indoor or outdoor environments for film, broadcast TV, and other video applications.

    The microphone's short length of eleven inches ensures it remains out of the camera frame, when mounted on a compact consumer video camera. When capturing audio at long range, the microphone's narrow pickup pattern enhances signal reproduction, off-axis sound rejection, and minimizes noise and ambiance, which delivers a natural sound.

    In addition, a built-in low-cut frequency switch helps to eliminate noise and hum registering in the low-frequency range. This microphone operates on a single 1.5V AA battery or 11 to 52V phantom power, and terminates with a 3-pin XLR connector. It includes a AT8405a stand clamp, a AT8134 foam windscreen, battery, a 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, and a protective carrying case.
