At NAMM 2019, Sennheiser has announced that its brand-new SK 6212 mini-bodypack transmitter, part of the award-winning Digital 6000 wireless microphone series, will be shipping from March. Designed for multi-channel audio applications in the fields of broadcasting, (musical) theatre and live audio, the mini-transmitter is lightweight, spectrum-efficient and offers rock-solid digital transmission with high-quality audio.
“A decade ago, Sennheiser’s SK 5212 set a standard on stages globally, being the smallest professional UHF microphone transmitter available at the time ,” remembers Tom Vollmers, Senior Product Manager Pro Audio. “With the digital SK 6212, we are opening a new chapter. We have developed this mini-transmitter hand in glove with our pro audio key customers, and the result is a new standard for stages: compact, spectrum-efficient, and with a long battery life.”
The perfect tool for performers, directors, and costume designers…
The mini bodypack is only about 63 x 47 x 20 millimeters in size and weighs approx. 112g including the battery, making it totally unobtrusive and easy to hide from view in costumes or even in wigs. Added to this are comfortably rounded corners and edges plus a flexible, replaceable antenna, making the SK 6212 easy on delicate costumes and comfortable when worn directly on the body. An additional inner sealing in the transmitter ensures a good level of moisture resistance. Moreover, there is no more stress with battery life: The SK 6212’s rechargeable lithium-polymer battery has a spectacular operating time of 12 hours, giving make-up artists and dressers enough time to work their stage magic.
… and for engineers and RF managers
Long before the show itself starts, the SK 6212 already proves its worth: Like the other transmitters in the Digital 6000 series, it transmits free from intermodulation, which means that the sound engineer or RF manager can simply place the transmission frequencies in a spectrum-efficient, equidistant grid – no calculation needed, just scanning for free spectrum, and no blocking of the scarce spectrum by intermods.
In the run-up to a performance, sound engineers will value the fact that despite its miniature size, the transmitter offers a fully-fledged user interface with an OLED display and function buttons. The SK 6212’s BA 62 lithium-polymer battery can be removed and recharged in the Digital 6000 rack-mount charger via the dedicated LM 6062 charging module.
On the audio side of things, the miniature bodypack uses the purpose-designed, proprietary SeDAC audio codec – the same DAC as used in the high-end Digital 9000 wireless system. As part of the Digital 6000 family, the SK 6212 is compatible with 6000 series receivers – including the analogue/digital EK 6042 camera receiver – and the receiver of the Digital 9000 series.
Tom Vollmers: “The SK 6212 will allow artists to fully concentrate on their performance because it can be barely felt when worn, and gives the engineer peace of mind thanks to its reliable transmission, great audio and long operating time.”
