A world first: Sennheiser’s new EK 6042 two-channel camera receiver works with both analogue and digital transmitters

At IBC, Sennheiser unveils a new slot-in camera receiver that redefines compatibility: the EK 6042 is a true-diversity, two-channel receiver that can work with both analogue and digital Sennheiser transmitters across a bandwidth of 184 MHz. It is an ideal partner for Sennheiser’s top-of-the-range Digital 9000 series and can operate with all analogue transmitters that feature Sennheiser’s HiDyn plus or HDX companders. The receiver will become available in spring 2016.

“This is a true “one for all” receiver,” said Tobias von Allwörden, product manager, Sennheiser Broadcast & Media. “It works with any Sennheiser series from Digital 9000, 5000 and 3000 down to 2000 and evolution wireless G3, and automatically identifies the transmitter via an IR link.”

The camera receiver chooses its own operating mode depending on the transmitter, and also selects the appropriate bandwidth and frequency in the UHF range between 470 and 654 MHz. As a true diversity receiver with four separate receiver circuits, the EK 6042 is extra-reliable, even in difficult RF environments.

The EK 6042 can be combined with either a 15-pin adaptor to slot directly into Sony cameras, or a 25-pin adaptor for Unislot- and SuperSlot-compatible devices.

For camcorders without an audio receiver slot, a special backpanel adaptor for the EK 6042 is available as an accessory. If the camera does not supply power to the receiver, a “piggyback” power adapter can be attached to this housing and fitted with two hot-swappable BA 61 battery packs.

The EK 6042 camera receiver will become available in spring 2016.
