Beyerdynamic is introducing the KE 900 Camera Receiver at the 123rd AES convention. Equipped with a durable, weatherproof aluminum housing, the KE 900 is made to withstand the extreme conditions of ENG (Electronic News Gathering) applications.
The KE 900 features a bandwidth of 24 MHz and is compatible with transmitters from the company’s Opus 900 wireless system. Using the KE 900’s Automatic Channel Targeting (ACT) function, users are able to select one interference-free frequency from 100 pre-programmed UHF frequencies, to be transmitted via infrared to a corresponding pocket or handheld transmitter. A new user interface promises easier operation.
The KE 900 comes equipped with an LC display that indicates the transmitter’s battery level (in five stages), frequency and channel, squelch, and AF and RF level. The KE 900’s Lock function helps protect transmissions from inadvertent button presses. Optional accessories include adapter plates to connect the receiver directly to a Sony or Ikegami camera slot, making it adaptable to other ENG setups. The KE 900 can be powered by an external DC power supply or a battery power adapter.
