June 14, 2017

High-performance hands-free microphones feature RF interference protection, moisture resistance and effortless installation, delivering superior performance for a wide range of speech applications

InfoComm (Booth #3201), ORLANDOHARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today presented the AKG HC644 MD head-worn and LC617 MD lavalier microphones to the U.S. AV industry at InfoComm 2017.

Featuring updated designs that decrease visibility, improve moisture resistance and provide presenters with versatile attachment options, HC644 MD and LC617 MD deliver renowned AKG speech clarity for superior audio performance in presentation and speech applications. HC644 MD and LC617 MD microphones are directly compatible with all AKG body-pack wireless transmitters and are adaptable to most popular wireless systems, making them ideal for presentations in classrooms, lecture halls and multiuse event facilities of any size.      

“After a successful European debut at ISE, we are excited to introduce the new AKG HC644 MD and LC617 MD hands-free microphones to U.S. customers at InfoComm 2017,” said Doug Hall, Product Manager, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “Head-worn and lavalier mics paired with wireless systems are vital tools for today’s public speaking professionals, and the AKG HC644 MD and LC617 MD provide even the most discerning speakers with the superior audio performance and advanced features they need to deliver a great presentation to groups of any size, at any venue.”

The AKG HC644 MD is a head-worn miniature condenser microphone with a slim headband, and LC617 MD is a clip-on omnidirectional lavalier mic with rotating clip. Both products provide a robust feature set to suit an array of applications. Exceptional RF shielding prevents electromagnetic interference such as the crowded 2.4 GHz frequency, cell phones and other high-power wireless devices from ruining the signal. The built-in MicroDot connector allows each mic to be used with a variety of connection types, as well as all major wireless microphone systems. Together, these features add to the flexible performance and reliable sound quality of the AKG HC644 MD and LC617 MD models.

In addition to superior sound quality and performance flexibility, AKG HC644 MD and LC617 MD are designed to create a more discreet look and stand up to the elements. Thinner cables and more versatile mounting options enable users to hide the cable and mount the microphone quickly and easily. The moisture-resistant design deflects precipitation and the presenter’s perspiration away from the mic using a protective wire-mesh layer. Finally, the LC617 offers black and beige color options to blend seamlessly with different clothes or skin tones.
