NAB 2016: Sennheiser to Launch MKE 440 Stereo Mic for DSLRs
Visitors to the Sennheiser and Neumann NAB booth (N5729) are promised to experience the future of audio with the demo of an AMBEO 3D Audio 9.1 installation – featuring a selection of Neumann monitor loudspeakers – and a virtual-reality experience recorded with Sennheiser’s AMBEO VR mic.
At the show, Sennheiser will also launch the brand-new MKE 440 stereo microphone for DSLR cameras, and will also preview the HandMic digital and the MK 4 digital, the latest products developed in cooperation with A/D conversion specialists, Apogee.
The Sennheiser and Neumann booth will let visitors see and experience the broad range of applications catered to by the two companies’ products, ranging from highly professional broadcast environments to podcast productions. “We’re showcasing quite a bandwidth at NAB this year, spanning from the top-of-the-range EK 6042 wireless camera receiver for broadcasters – which has its US launch at the show – to the all new MKE 440 stereo camera microphone, which targets semi-pros and demanding consumers,” says Achim Gleissner, Commercial Manager for Sennheiser’s Broadcast and Media business.
Themed areas showcase solutions that meet the different needs of users with specific fields of interest, such as mobile journalism, ENG, filmmaking, DSLRs, live broadcasting, radio stations, 9.1 studio monitoring or sports broadcasting. Added to these areas is an active AMBEO display designed to offer an experience of VR content produced with Sennheiser’s upcoming virtual-reality microphone.
New products on show include the MKE 440 stereo microphone for DSLRs, the HandMic digital and the MK 4 digital. The MKE 440 is a camera microphone that uses a new type of stereo arrangement to create truly exceptional audio results for DSLR users. The HandMic digital and MK 4 digital, on the other hand, have been created in cooperation with Apogee for users that prefer to record audio via their smart devices: These microphones will yield excellent results, whether used in mobile journalism, for producing podcasts or for making studio-quality mobile audio recordings. NAB 2016 also marks the US launch of the Sennheiser EK 6042 two-channel camera receiver, which works with digital and analogue transmitters or a mix thereof.
