NAB 2017: New products from Sennheiser and Neumann

Sennheiser and Neumann will use their joint booth C2213 at this year’s NAB Show to showcase a wide range of professional audio products for a number of applications, from producing movies to mobile journalism.

The booth will also feature solutions for radio and TV studios, for immersive virtual reality productions, and for personal use, with the MKE 2 elements action microphone for GoPro HERO4 cameras.

The booth is divided into a number of areas: The ‘Filmset’ area will introduce visitors to Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 wireless system and the EK 6042 two-channel camera receiver, in addition to the MKH series shotgun microphones.

A typical audio desk is being recreated in the ‘OB van’ section. Neumann monitors, such as the KH 120 active studio monitor and the new KH 80 DSP nearfield studio monitor will feature alongside Sennheiser’s 6000 series rack receivers.

In ‘Radio World’ visitors can try out a selection of Neumann microphones including models from its BCM line. Meanwhile, an AMBEO showcase illustrates the AMBEO VR Mic, together with immersive content created with it.

The ‘Mobile Journalism’ area introduces solutions such as Sennheiser’s wireless AVX systems and the iOS microphones (ClipMic digital, MKE 2 digital) that the company has developed with A/D conversion specialists Apogee.

In a special ‘Sports’ area, Sennheiser will showcase the MKE 2 elements action microphone for the GoPro HERO4 camera, and demonstrate the advantages of a waterproof external microphone for recording action sports footage.

“Production technology today spans a wide range of applications, and therefore so does the audio technology Sennheiser and Neumann are showcasing,” explained Achim Gleissner, commercial manager, Broadcast and Media, at Sennheiser. “Whether you’re making a big-budget movie or filming a tutorial for your YouTube channel – a great audio solution will be at your fingertips at our NAB stand.”
