    Best video sound for your DSLR:

    At NAB, audio specialist Sennheiser is unveiling the MKE 440, a stereo camera microphone that solves a typical challenge encountered by DSLR users: capturing focused stereo sound from the filmed object. “The MKE 440 is not only the most compact stereo shotgun microphone on the market,” said Kai Lange, Sennheiser product manager, Broadcast and Media. “Quite unlike other stereo camera microphones, it will predominantly pick up the sound from within the camera angle thanks to its new stereo principle.” The result is a well-balanced mix between ambient sound and clearly comprehensible speech and dialogue. “This enables DSLR users to capture professional stereo sound in one go, which saves production time and effort,” added Kai Lange.

    Maximum compatibility: the Sennheiser EK 6042 two-channel camera receiver

    NAB 2016 marks the US launch of Sennheiser’s brand-new EK 6042 slot-in camera receiver, which was previewed earlier at IBC. The true-diversity, two-channel EK 6042 can work with analogue and digital Sennheiser transmitters or – a world first – a mix thereof, across a bandwidth of 184 MHz. It is an ideal partner to Sennheiser’s top-of-the-range Digital 9000 series and all analogue transmitters that feature HiDyn plus or HDX companders. The EK 6042 auto-configures for these transmitters via IR, saving set-up time and hassle for broadcast and filming crews who place a high value on sound quality and wireless reliability.

    A rugged dynamic mic for your digital recordings: Sennheiser previews HandMic digital

    At prolight+sound, audio specialist Sennheiser will preview the HandMic digital, which transforms any smartphone or tablet into a professional recording tool for vocals and speech. Highly resistant to cell phone interference, the cardioid dynamic handheld microphone is ideal for mobile journalism, podcasting or vocal and instrument recording. It offers all the benefits that users have come to expect of a typical Sennheiser microphone: great sound quality and presence, high feedback rejection, and excellent suppression of handling and wind noise. An Apogee A/D converter and pre-amp translate these qualities into the digital realm. The HandMic digital will be available from the third quarter of 2016.
