Las Vegas, NV (June 7, 2018)—At InfoComm, Yamaha and Sennheiser announced that upcoming firmware updates from both companies will integrate the Sennheiser Digital 6000 microphone system into Yamaha CL and QL series consoles.
As a result, Sennheiser’s EM 6000 and EM 6000 Dante wireless receivers will be able to be monitored directly from the consoles, allowing engineers to check parameters such as RF performance, link quality, audio level and battery status as well as adjust certain parameters without the need for additional software or screens. This integration is already available for Soundcraft Vi000 consoles.
“Yamaha has continued to offer new and convenient solutions through close collaboration with various partners,” says Yoshi Tsugawa, general manager of the Yamaha Pro Audio Division.
“This announcement takes that collaboration to an even higher level,” he added. “Digital mixing consoles are expected to take on a much larger role than simply mixing in today’s sound systems, and the full breadth of the functionality required cannot be handled by one company alone. All-encompassing solutions would not be possible without the support and cooperation of third parties.”
“Sennheiser is always keen to collaborate with other manufacturers to allow our systems to interface with their products, making user workflows as smooth and easy as possible,” says Tom Vollmers, senior product manager, Professional Audio at Sennheiser.
Digital 6000 integration is already available for Soundcraft Vi000 consoles, and Sennheiser reports it is currently working with other manufacturers to integrate with more desks in the future.
