Sennheiser Adds Link Density Mode To Digital 6000 Wireless Microphone Series

LD Mode significantly increases the number of links that can be operated in congested RF environments.

In the face of ever shrinking UHF spectrum available for the program-making and special events (PMSE) sector, Sennheiser is launching a “Link Density Mode” for its Digital 6000 wireless microphone series.

“Virtually everywhere the world over, production companies, theatres and touring artists and their engineers have lost more UHF spectrum than can be compensated for,” explains Tom Vollmers, manager for the Professional Portfolio at Sennheiser. “With the Link Density Mode for Digital 6000, we are providing greater leeway to PMSE professionals while continuing our joint efforts to secure frequency spectrum that is so urgently needed for productions.”

The new Link Density (LD) Mode significantly increases the number of links that can be operated in congested RF environments. While the standard Long Range Mode of Digital 6000 operates with a 400 kHz channel spacing to ensure best audio and RF performance, the LD Mode uses half of the spacing, i.e. 200 kHz. This means that up to 40 links can be accommodated in an 8-MHz TV channel in Europe, and up to 30 links in the smaller 6-MHz TV channel in the USA.

The brand-new Link Density Mode for Digital 6000 will help users to circumvent the most pressing spectrum issues they face in their daily work: They are now able to increase the number of channels within a given frequency window by accepting slight trade-offs in the audio frequency response and RF range

Behind the LD Mode is the new Sennheiser Performance Audio Codec (SePAC) which has been designed by Sennheiser’s developers to strike a new balance between channel count and RF and audio performance.

“The LD Mode provides productions with a choice where there simply was none before,” says Vollmers. “They are now able to increase the number of channels by accepting slight trade-offs in the audio frequency response and RF range. This can be a good solution for applications that only have very limited spectrum at their disposal.”

The new LD Mode is available free of charge via a firmware update. It can be used with all existing Digital 6000 systems in the market except for the EK 6042 camera receiver, which will not support LD Mode.
