Audio-Technica microphones will be used by Athens Olympic Broadcasting S.A. to broadcast the 28th Olympic Games, held August 13-29, 2004, in Athens. AOB is the host broadcaster for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and is responsible for producing and distributing audio and video coverage. AOB generates an international signal, which includes all camera, audio and graphics generated at each sporting venue, and transmits it to all radio and television rights-holding broadcasters that adapt the signal for transmission on their networks.

“All eyes and ears will be on Athens in 2004 when the Olympic Games begin, and the demands of the multitude of settings in this event call for Audio-Technica mics,” said Michael Edwards, Audio-Technica product manager. “The durability and dependability of A-T is well-known in the industry, and our mics are recognized for being able to reproduce sound faithfully with the highest consistency of reproduction from mic to mic.”

A large number of Audio-Technica’s shotgun microphones were selected, including the AT4071 and AT4073, and the AT815ST and AT835ST stereo shotguns, both of which were designed specifically for the Olympics in 2000. Other microphones supporting the audio setup include the AT895 adaptive-array mic, AT841 omni condenser boundary microphone, MT830 miniature omni condenser lavalier, AT831 miniature cardioid condenser lavalier and the new 5mm AT899 subminiature omni lavalier. Audio-Technica wireless systems are also to be used.
