NAB 2012: Sennheiser To Debut SKP 300 G3 Plug-on Transmitter

Sennheiser will debut the latest transmitter in its ew 300 G3 series, a new “Sennheiser Easy Control” app for the iPhone and IPad, and more.

The SKP 300 G3 plug-on transmitter is the latest evolution it Sennheiser’s wireless ew 300 G3 series. Whether it is for a speaker’s podium or for fast mobile use in video productions, the SKP 300 G3 converts any conventional cabled microphone quickly and easily into a wireless one. The phantom power required by condenser microphones is also supplied by the rugged transmitter – a highly versatile device that enables cabled microphones to become wireless with ease.

The “Sennheiser Easy Control” app allows users to remotely control a conference system or a microphone receiver easily and directly from an iPhone or iPad. The free app enables both the ADN conference system and Sennheiser transmitters and receivers from the evolution wireless G3 300 and 500 series and the 2000 series to be centrally remote controlled and monitored.

Finally, with the new firmware version 1.7.0, Sennheiser is now providing a media control protocol for its 2000, evolution wireless ew 500 G3, and evolution wireless ew 300 G3 series. This new open protocol enables rack-mount devices of the series to communicate directly with media control units in an Ethernet network (UDP/IP) and thus also to be integrated into larger audio/video control systems.
