Overview

Designed for plug and record operation with fully self-configuring digital operation, the AVX Camera-Mountable Lavalier Pro Digital Wireless Set from Sennheiser is well suited for film and video production, as well as electronic news gathering (ENG) and A/V rental houses. The system consists of the EKP receiver, SK bodypack transmitter, and an MKE2 lavalier microphone. The AVX system provides a variety of automatic functionality aimed at flexibility and speed including auto-dynamic range settings, which automatically adjusts the audio level to a recording device's input sensitivity, reducing distortion and eliminating the need to adjust your mic's level. The system also offers link protection, a feature that quickly scans available frequencies and will automatically switch before any interference becomes audible.

The Sennheiser MKE 2 is a professional miniature lavalier microphone and an industry favourite among field audio engineers, broadcast engineers and film crews. With a wide frequency and high sensitivity response, the MKE 2 lavalier is developed for crucial audio reproduction of vocals and instruments. Its omnidirectional polar pattern provides an even frequency response throughout the perimeter of the microphone.

The result minimises handling noise caused by clothing, while providing accurate, transparent audio fidelity without noise. The MKE 2 is widely favoured for its superior audio quality and miniature profile. The sub-miniature yet durable design enables the microphone to be used in stage performances, video shoots, film shoots, or anywhere an unobtrusive microphone is necessary. The microphone features various terminations to accommodate wireless transmitters and connectors.

Designed in collaboration with creative professionals for film and electronic news gathering (ENG) applications, the Sennheiser AVX Digital Bodypack Transmitter (CH 8: 1920 to 1930 MHz) features an innovative design that is fully self-configuring which makes setup fast and easy. The system's link protection helps ensure reliable audio transmission and the AES 256 encryption helps protect your signal from unauthorised interception.

The bodypack transmitter features a 3.5mm jack and accepts either a microphone with a maximum input of 2.2V RMS (50 to 20,000 Hz response) or a line level source with a maximum input of 3.3V RMS (20 to 20,000 Hz response) for a wide variety of sources. The unit is powered by an optional Li-ion 3.7V battery and has an operating time of 15 hours.

Designed in collaboration with creative professionals for film and electronic news gathering (ENG) applications, the Sennheiser AVX EKP Camera Plug-On Digital Wireless Receiver features an innovative pivoting design for attaching to a video camera's XLR microphone input without getting in the way of other camera accessories. The receiver rotates both clockwise and counter clockwise. It will click into place as opposed to a tension based design.

The digital receiver is fully self-configuring which makes setup fast and easy, while the system's link protection helps ensure reliable audio transmission. The unit will switch on and off automatically with the +48V phantom power from the camera to save battery power. It will automatically match the camera's input sensitivity without having to adjust the audio level on the wireless microphone.

The receiver comes equipped with a set of accessories for operation with DSLR cameras including a BA 20 Energy Pack, a light shoe mount, an XLR to 3.5mm adapter for use with DSLRs, a belt clip, a USB cable, and a USB charger.
