Sennheiser is introducing the world's smallest professional bodypack transmitter at the 111th AES in New York. Implementing Sennheiser's matchless RF technology, the SK 5012 delivers 30mW of pristine, robust wireless audio while housed in a diminutive a 61 x 53 x 17mm shell. This is about half the size of Sennheiser's SK 50. The new SK 5012 is poised to revolutionize wireless functionality for "size-conscious" applications in theater, television and film.
The SK 5012 features include lower self-noise, greater multi-channel capabilities, and an easily programmable interface. Audio transmission is employs an improved noise reduction system. Two AAA batteries power 5012's 30mW of output transmission strength with great efficiency due to a specialized antenna design, delivering seven hours of continuous operation. The unit is constructed of metal for durability and robust operation even in harsh environments. Signal strength is independent of battery status, assuring worry-free operation.
"The SK 5012 is the latest addition to our high-end 5000 Series," noted Joe Ciaudelli, Director of Marketing. "While we recognize that the 5000 Series is the standard for demanding RF wireless projects, Sennheiser never rests on past achievements. In theatrical and film applications, sound designers and engineers are forever pushing for smaller, unobtrusive transmitters. The SK 5012 fulfills their needs while enhancing overall performance."
