STOW, OH, October 17, 2012 — Audio-Technica, currently celebrating “50 Years of Passionate Listening,” supplied microphones used on both candidates, the moderator and audience participants at the third debate in the 2012 presidential campaign on October 16 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. Larry Estrin, of Best Audio in Studio City, CA, who serves as Audio and Production Communications Director for the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), chose A-T for each of the four debates in the series. A leading audio resource for high-profile broadcast events, Audio-Technica has provided a host of microphones from their comprehensive product line to pick up crisp, intelligible audio and cover the diverse needs of each debate.

Products used included A-T’s 5000 Series wireless with AEW-T5400a condenser handheld transmitters and AEW-R5200 receivers for President Obama and Governor Romney (allowing the candidates to freely roam while answering the evening’s questions); AT898cW Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Lavalier Microphones with AEW-T1000a body packs (doubled for redundancy) for moderator Candy Crowley; AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Handheld (wired) microphones, connected to Audio-Technica’s AT-MX351a SmartMixer® Five-Channel Mixers, for audience members asking questions of the candidates; and BP4071 Line + Gradient Condenser Microphones for room ambience.
