The Plug-on Transmitter Rounds Off the 2000 Series
Sennheiser Puts Its Full Line of Professional Products on Display at IBC
With the new SKP 2000 plug-on transmitter, the audio specialist Sennheiser has rounded off its 2000 series. “With the SKP 2000, our latest professional wireless series now covers a full range of broadcasting requirements,” says Product Manager Astrid Vettin. For ENG applications, the 2000 series includes a diversity camera receiver, handheld transmitter, bodypack transmitter and now the new plug-on transmitter.
Ready to transmit in the blink of an eye
The SKP 2000 plug-on transmitter can be used anywhere where a wired micro¬phone must sometimes have wireless capability. It can be connected directly to the microphone instead of the XLR cable. The SKP 2000 features 48-V phantom power and can be used with all condenser and dynamic microphones.
Fits all broadcasting needs
The perfect complement to ENG applications is the EK 2000 camera receiver. Thanks to so-called adaptive diversity – the receiver uses the camera cable as a second antenna – reception is made even more reliable. The receiver can also be used to configure the corresponding transmitter. The settings stored in the receiver – including frequency, channel name, the low-cut and the sensitivity of the transmitter – can be sent to the transmitter quickly and easily via the infra-red interface. Practical feature: the settings for several transmitters can be saved in the camera receiver so that it is possible to switch quickly between a handheld microphone and bodypack transmitter if required.
The diversity receiver can also be combined with the SKM 2000 handheld transmitter or the SK 2000 bodypack transmitter with a clip-on or headset microphone. “For the handheld transmitter, all the microphone heads from the successful evolution wireless G3 series are available, from the robust dynamic to the true condenser capsule,” explains Astrid Vettin. “The bodypack transmitter can be combined with the classic MKE 2 Gold clip-on microphone or our smallest model, the MKE 1. Or with headset microphones such as the HSP 2 and
All the advantages of the 2000 series
“The 2000 series features high frequency agility and multi-channel capability, professional monitoring and control, well-designed menus and outstanding audio quality,” summarizes Astrid Vettin. Depending on the UHF range, the devices have up to 75 MHz switching bandwidth, on which as many as 64 compatible frequency presets are available for microphone systems. Output power for the transmitter can be adjusted to 10, 30 or 50 mW. The US variant transmits with up to 100 mW. Even under difficult conditions, reliable transmission is guaranteed.
The wide audio frequency response (25 - 20,000 Hz for the bodypack transmitter [line], and 80 - 20,000 Hz for the handheld and plug-on transmitters) and audio sensitivity with a wide range of settings provide perfect audio quality. All portable devices can be used with rechargeable or standard batteries.
The ENG components for the 2000 series are now available.
