Sennheiser and Neumann at IBC: Camera Sound Meets Studio Audio(August 13, 2017)
A solution for every camera
Differently themed areas of the stand reflect the bandwidth of today's media production. Alongside the MKE 2 elements - the first waterproof microphone for the GoPro HERO4 which paired with the action cam creates spectacular YouTube videos - the highlights on show range from interview microphones for mobile journalism, such as the HANDMIC DIGITAL and the wireless AVX, to the fully professional EK 6042 two-channel receiver for broadcast cameras.
The MK 4 digital is the microphone of choice for dubbing and podcast applications, while the ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital clip-on microphones for iPhones und iPads ensure great sound for self-produced videos. The portfolio of products on display is rounded off by shotgun microphones from the MKH series for film production, as well as wireless microphones from the Digital 9000, Digital 6000, 2000 and evolution wireless series, which are used for ENG and broadcasting.
A particularly eye-catching highlight at the booth is the MKE 2 elements for the GoPro HERO4, the performance of which will be impressively illustrated by footage from the Mercedes-Benz Kitesurf World Cup. One of the biggest lifestyle watersports events in the world, the tournament takes place prior to IBC in August. "Kite surfing is the ideal sport for demonstrating how you can produce great footage even when you're exposed to wind and water. We are expecting videos with a sound quality that has never been possible before," says Gleissner.
3D audio productions The field of 3D audio is an innovative media format that is growing in importance. It is the key to immersing listeners into new audio worlds and to completing the perfect illusion in virtual reality applications. When it comes to 3D productions, the talents of the AMBEO VR Mic from Sennheiser and the binaural KU 100 dummy head from Neumann truly shine. Visitors to the IBC Future Zone have an additional opportunity to try out the AMBEO VR Mic, which will feature in workshops on the subject of virtual reality recordings and post-production.
Studio highlights The studio area of the stand also reflects the huge diversity of today's production possibilities. Products such as the Sennheiser MK 4 digital and the Neumann TLM 102 for professionally equipped home studios are on display, as is the extremely versatile Neumann TLM 107 for project studio applications. On show for professional studios are Neumann legends including the U 87, as well as two much-loved workhorses for radio studios, the BCM 104 and BCM 705.
The Neumann range of studio monitors was recently expanded with the launch of the KH 80 DSP. It's the ideal product for smaller studios that do not want to miss out on great Neumann sound and visitors will be able to experience the impressive sound of this new model as well as a wide range of other Neumann monitors.
