Sennheiser To Preview SK 6212 Mini-Bodypack Transmitter At IBC

News Image
Sennheiser is to make a number of landmark demonstrations at the upcoming IBC 2018, including a preview of its SK 6212 mini-bodypack transmitter and the European debut of the Essential Omni series of lavalier and headset microphones.

The SK612 is a mini transmitter for the Digital 6000 wireless microphone system, ideal for any broadcast, theatre or live audio show that requires an inconspicuous, ultra-compact package with the same reliable and intermodulation-free transmission as that offered by the other Digital 6000 transmitters.



The new Memory Mic, a wireless microphone for smartphones, and the accompanying video app are already developing to must-have tools for mobile journalists and content creators who rely on their mobile phone for quick and uncomplicated audio and video capture. The small, lightweight wireless microphone offers broadcast-quality sound and works at any distance from the smartphone. The free Sennheiser video app offers one-touch synchronisation of audio and video, sensitivity selection to optimally adapt the mic to the speaker and a mixing function to select the optimum balance between the standard audio recorded by the smartphone and the audio recorded via the Memory Mic.



Sennheiser also has something new on offer for monitoring: The IE 40 PRO is the company's entry model in a series of brand-new professional in-ears. The IE 40 PRO ensures impeccable audio reproduction with warmth, great detail and natural clarity, improving the artist's focus and performance control even in difficult stage situations. The meticulous audio performance is complemented by a well thought-out mechanical design that includes a patent-pending, break-proof cable ducting.



Continuing the legacy of the classic HD 250 Linear, the HD 300 PRO monitoring headphones will make their first appearance at a European tradeshow, as will the HMD 300 PRO headset for camera operation and backstage communications. The 300 PRO series includes the HD 300 PRO and HD 300 PROtect monitoring headphones (the latter with selectable ActiveGard protection) as well as the HMD 300 PRO and single-sided HMD 301 PRO communications headsets. The headsets feature ActiveGard and a noise-compensated, super-cardioid boom microphone for clear communications in loud production environments.



The Essential Omni series of lavalier and headset microphones also make their European debut, closing the gap between Sennheiser's high-end solutions for broadcast, music and theatre and the microphones supplied with its best-selling evolution wireless 100 series. The MKE Essential Omni and HSP Essential Omni bring the accepted core acoustics of the MKE 2 and HSP 2 to a new audience.



Highlights from studio specialist Neumann.Berlin include the re-issue of the famous U 67 tube microphone. Much loved for its smooth sound and extraordinary versatility, the U 67 was the quintessential studio workhorse throughout the 1960s, the formative years of modern music. Built to the original specifications, the U 67 comes in a vintage case, complete with an elastic suspension, a microphone cable and the redesigned NU 67 V power supply.



The workflow of binaural audio recording and processing is the main focus of AMBEO at IBC. In addition to microphone solutions such as the Neumann KU 100 binaural head, as well as the Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset and AMBEO VR Mic, the dearVR Spatial Connect mixing software from Sennheiser partner Dear Reality will be demoed. There will also be a variety of binaural audio recordings to round off the presentation.



Sennheiser can be found at IBC in Hall 8, Stand D50.
