Anaheim, CA (January 19, 2004)–Audio and RF specialist Sennheiser introduced the second generation of its successful evolution wireless series at last week’s NAMM Show. The second generation of the evolution series offers even more product features and a further enhanced design concept, while still maintaining the price level of its predecessor.
Sennheiser’s new evolution wireless series features systems for every conceivable application and a broad range of accessories. Whether for vocals, instruments, presentations, camera work or wireless monitoring, the five evolution wireless G2 lines offer a system for every purpose.
Thanks to a broader switching bandwidth (36 MHz), evolution wireless G2 now makes 1,440 channels available to the user. The most striking changes have been made to the bodypack transmitters and mobile receivers, which have been reduced in size by about 30 percent. New, additional features include the scan function that automatically searches for free channels, as well as the new, intuitive user menu and large backlit displays. A pilot tone squelch ensures that the transmitter microphone can be switched on and off without noise. The (adjustable) squelch can be deactivated in order to guarantee compatibility with the first evolution wireless generation.
A new reset function has been incorporated in the new evolution series, which will be of particular interest to rental companies. At the touch of a button, the system can be reset to its initial settings–ready for its next job. The evolution wireless G2 also has a new battery concept. The body-pack transmitters and mobile receivers are powered by two AA-size cells to ensure a longer operating time and stable RF performance. In addition, a powerful rechargeable battery pack, the BA 2015, is now available for the hand-held transmitter, the bodypack transmitter, the plug-on transmitter and the mobile receiver. The matching charger recharges the batteries either directly or – for the 300 Series and above – while they are still inside the bodypack transmitter/receiver.
The evolution wireless G2 includes five series. The most affordable series is the evolution wireless ew 100 G2 Series, which, with its eleven sets, covers all areas of wireless audio transmission, from vocals and instruments to presentations and camera sound. Supplied complete with rack adapters, the seven sets in the ew 300 G2 Series offer enhanced RF and AF properties for vocals, presentations and instruments. For the ew 500 G2 Series, the user can choose from individual components that are supplied complete with accessories. The ew 550 G2 Series at the top end of the evolution wireless range includes the EM 550 twin receiver, which can be combined with any transmitters from the 500 Series. The ew 300 IEM G2 Series offers the artist a powerful wireless monitoring system with an ultra-compact receiver. The system is supplied complete with rack adapter and earphones. Additional receivers with earphones are available separately.
