Sennheiser announces the SKM 5200-II wireless handheld transmitter ($2,600 MSRP), which offers an expanded switching bandwidth of up to 184 MHz. The SKM 5200-II is Sennheiser’s latest addition to its wideband wireless systems.
The beginning of 2010 saw the launch of the SK 5212-II bodypack transmitter and the EM 3732-II receiver family. With wide switching bandwidth, these models are designed for traveling productions and demanding multichannel applications.
Introduced on the SK 5212-II bodypack transmitter earlier this year, the SKM 5200-II is equipped with Sennheiser’s new “Low Intermodulation” mode, which ensures more-reliable transmission in multichannel applications. Sennheiser states that “Low Intermodulation” mode allows sound engineers to pack around 30 percent more channels into a given frequency band, by increasing the linearity of the amplifier’s 10mW output mode. As a result, the available spectrum can be used more efficiently, and with increased reliability. The transmitter can also operate at “standard” 10 mW, to significantly extend operating time, or at 50 mW to increase the transmitter’s range.
The SKM 5200-II handheld transmitter is available now in black, nickel and steel blue and can be fitted with a wide range of premium capsules, including Sennheiser’s MD 5235, and Neumann’s KK104 and KK105. Available frequency ranges include 470 to 638 MHz (L-band), 614 to 697.9 MHz (N-US band) and 614 to 798 MHz (N-band, for export use only).
