BVE 2016: Sennheiser shows latest broadcast products

Sennheiser is showing a number of its latest products for the broadcast market at this year’s BVE Show, including the new EK 6042 two-channel camera receiver, AVX wireless mic systems for video cameras, and the ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital.

The first product being shown by the audio specialist is the EK 6042 (pictured), a ‘true-diversity’, two-channel receiver that can work with both analogue and digital Sennheiser transmitters across a bandwidth of 184 MHz. Sennheiser says it is an ideal partner for its flagship Digital 9000 system (also on display at the show), and can operate with all analogue transmitters that feature Sennheiser’s HiDyn plus or HDX companders.

Also on display at BVE is Sennheiser’s compact AVX receiver, which plugs directly into the XLR of a camera – automatically pairing with the microphone and switching on when the camera does. The system automatically adjusts the correct audio levels and transmits using a specially protected link in the license-free 1.9 GHz range.

Finally, Sennheiser and Apogee are displaying their new digital clip-on microphones at this year’s show. ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital “combine Apogee’s A/D conversion expertise with Sennheieser’s microphone design knowledge to give users optimum sound quality for their recordings.”

Especially designed for iOS devices, both microphones feature a lightning connector to directly connect to iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, thus creating ‘high-quality, ultra-portable solutions’ for recording speech.
