At ISE in Amsterdam, audio specialist Sennheiser is launching its new tourguide EK 1039 bodypack receiver for tour-guide, interpreting and assistive listening applications. Users of this new professional receiver will benefit from reliable RF wireless transmission, easy operation and exceptional audio quality.
Whether guided tours of museums, factories, city tours and exhibitions or interpreting tasks at international conferences – Sennheiser’s tourguide EK 1039 receiver is versatile, flexible and easy to use. It is also an ideal choice for instruction and refereeing situations in sports or as an assistive listening receiver for houses of worship, theatres and conference centres.
“Today, professional users are faced with a crowded radio spectrum and less and less space to find room for the transmission frequencies they need. This is where the tourguide EK 1039 is able to offer a wide range of possible frequencies and thus reliable audio transmission“, explained Kai Tossing, Sennheiser’s product manager for Installed Sound. “tourguide 1039 has a wide switching bandwidth of up to 75 MHz, making it the tour-guide system with the highest number of channels that can be operated simultaneously. Users can transmit on up to 32 channels per frequency range.” Also, the wide switching window makes finding a free frequency in difficult situations much easier. The transmission reliability is further enhanced by the EK 1039’s Adaptive Diversity reception.
High audio quality
An excellent audio frequency response of a full 25–15,000 Hz gives the receiver a very natural, high-quality sound reproduction. “Assistive listening installations in theatres or even in music venues will benefit from this excellent audio quality”, added Kai Tossing.
Time is always an invaluable resource, especially when preparing an event or a guided tour. This is why the EK 1039 is fitted with a Copy function. Once one receiver has been programmed, its settings can easily be transmitted via infra-red to the other receivers just by passing the programmed receiver over them.
To allow for easy recognition and assignment to the listeners, the channels of the tourguide EK 1039 can be given a name, for example, “French” or “Spanish”. Of course, this channel name is also part of the data that is copied from a programmed receiver.
To fully utilise the receiver’s wide switching bandwidth, the transmitters of the 2000 series are the ideal complement for the EK 1039. It can also be used with the handheld and bodypack transmitters of the evolution wireless G3 series (reducing the effective switching bandwidth to 42 MHz). The receiver can be powered either via the included BA 2015 accupack or standard AA batteries. The headphones for the receiver can be selected depending on the application: the EK 1039 can be used with any headphones or earphones that have a standard 3.5 mm jack plug. The receiver can also be combined with Sennheiser’s induction accessories for the hearing impaired.
