At booth #227, Sennheiser will introduce the brand-new SKM 5200, the latest handheld wireless transmitter in the company's 5000 Series. The SKM 5200 may be paired with a choice of six Sennheiser and two Neumann interchangeable microphone heads to accommodate stage, broadcast and recording situations.
The Sennheiser heads includes five condensers and one dynamic, with omnidirectional, cardioid, wide cardioid or supercardioid pick-up patterns; two Neumann mic heads are available (supercardioid and cardioid).
Features include switchable sensitivity in 1dB steps, HiDyn plus™ noise-reduction system and two channel banks: one fixed and one variable. The fixed bank may be ordered with 20 preset frequencies to allow the transmitter to be integrated into existing RF environments. Users may program up to 20 UHF frequencies in 5kHz steps into the variable bank.
All settings can be modified using a multifunction switch. A backlit LCD indicates all audio and RF settings, while an automatic Lock mode avoids accidental changes. A Name menu allows users to identify their SKM 5200, with the six-character name being shown on the standard display.
The transmitter's LCD indicates battery charge status, which is also transmitted to suitable receivers. The SKM 5200 offers more than eight hours of continuous operation using the rechargeable battery pack or standard alkaline batteries.
