Sennheiser heads to second BVE North

Sennheiser UK exhibited its microphones, wireless systems, headphones and monitoring products at BVE North this week. Highlights from the company’s stand were the new MKE 600 shotgun mic, MKH 8090 wide cardioid condenser microphone and Sennheiser’s Digital 9000 system. Launched at IBC2012, Digital 9000 is a digital wireless system that can transmit artefact-free uncompressed audio. The system includes the EM 9046 receiver, SKM 9000 handheld and SK 9000 bodypack transmitters. The new MKE 600 shotgun microphone’s high level of directivity ensures that it picks up sound from the camera direction while reliably avoiding unwanted background noise. The switchable low-cut filter minimises handling and wind noise. Users can expect a full-bodied sound with good bass response and speech reproduction. The MKH 8090 has a wide cardioid pick-up pattern. The RF condenser microphone is suited as both a main and a spot microphone. An optional screw-on module, the MZD8000, can be used to convert it into a digital AES42 microphone. – Jake
