NAB 2017: Sennheiser Updates

Brian Walker of Sennheiser was kind enough to join us for two videos. First, he shows us the MKE 440, followed by the EK 6042.

The MKE 440 is a shotgun microphone with a bit of an interesting twist. It is one mic featuring a pair of MKE 400 capsules to create a stereo perspective. The MKE 440 was designed to be mounted directly on top of a camcorder or DSLR, so it features a cold shoe mount as well as a 3.5mm audio jack. Sennheiser will also offer a stereo 3.5mm to XLR adapter for cameras with more professional audio inputs. The mic is powered using two AAA batteries, which will provide about thirty hours of power.

The EK 6042 is a slot-loadable, dual-channel receiver compatible with all Sennheiser transmitters, both analog and digital. You can run them simultaneously, with one channel set up for analog and the other for digital. Make sure to watch the video above to learn more.
