Sennheiser Unveils EK 6042 Two-Channel Camera Wirelesss Receiver

Works with both analog and digital Sennheiser transmitters across a bandwidth of 184 MHz

The new EK 6042 two-channel receiver from Sennheiser.

Sennheiser has introduced the EK 6042, a slot-in camera, two-channel, true-diversity, wireless receiver that can work with both analog and digital Sennheiser transmitters across a bandwidth of 184 MHz.

It is a partner for Sennheiser’s flaship Digital 9000 series and can operate with all analog transmitters that utilize 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 will become available in spring 2016.
