-Natural-Sounding On-Axis Audio Quality
-Sound Rejection From Sides and RearThe AT897 Line and Gradient Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica is a short shotgun condenser microphone designed for audio capturing in video and broadcast applications. The microphone's unobtrusive length of 11.0" (279.40 mm) 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 11 to 52V phantom power.
