Old Lyme, CT (April 24, 2009)–Sennheiser has introduced its 2000 Series, a professional, entry-level wireless microphone system. The 2000 Series includes products for a wide range of wireless applications. Handheld and body-pack transmitters with single or twin receivers are available for stage, broadcasting and installed sound applications. For monitoring, professional users can combine the diversity receivers of the series with single or twin monitor transmitters.
“The outstanding features of the 2000 Series are a high level of frequency flexibility and multichannel capability with professional control via the Wireless Systems Manager software, delivering a well-thought-out menu structure and superb audio quality,” explained Dawn Birr, product manager for professional wireless systems. “In addition, the 2000 Series is backwards-compatible with all generations of evolution wireless products and the familiar professional accessories of our 3000 and 5000 Series, including clip-on microphones, antennas, boosters and combiners.”
Depending on the UHF range, the units have a switching bandwidth of up to 72 MHz in the U.S., in which up to 64 compatible frequency presets are available for microphones and up to 32 for monitoring systems. The rackmount units can transmit their frequency data, name, sensitivity, low cut, etc. to the corresponding portable transmitters or receivers via an infrared interface.
An antenna loop-through socket and an integrated active splitter allow up to eight rack receivers to be daisy-chained. The systems can be monitored and controlled by a PC, and for this purpose all rackmount transmitters and receivers are equipped with an Ethernet socket. In order to focus either on maximum operational reliability for multichannel applications or on a greater range, depending on the application, the transmitter output power can be switched between 10, 30, 50 and 100mW.
