FARMINGDALE, NY -- beyerdynamic, a leading manufacturer of exceptional microphones, headphones and wireless microphone systems, introduces the KE 900 Camera Receiver. Equipped with a durable, weatherproof aluminum housing, the KE 900 is made to withstand the extreme conditions of ENG (Electronic News Gathering) applications.
The KE 900 features a bandwidth of 24 MHz and is compatible with transmitters from the company‘s Opus 900 wireless system. Utilizing the KE 900‘s Automatic Channel Targeting (ACT) function, users are able to easily select one interference-free frequency from 100 pre-programmed UHF frequencies, to be transmitted via infrared to a corresponding pocket or handheld transmitter. The receiver can be operated effortlessly and intuitively via a new user interface.
“When dealing with ENG situations, time is often a critical factor,” says Paul Froula, beyerdynamic‘s Pro Audio Business Manager. “The KE 900‘s ACT function helps to greatly reduce setup time, allowing broadcasters to concentrate on getting the story -- not on technology function.”
The KE 900 comes equipped with an LC-display that indicates the battery level of the transmitter (5-stage), frequency and channel, squelch, AF and RF level. Due to the KE 900‘s LOCK-function, transmissions can be protected against inadvertently pressing buttons. Optional accessories include adapter plates to connect the receiver directly to a Sony or Ikegami camera slot, making it adaptable to any ENG setup. The KE 900 can be powered by an external DC power supply or a battery power adapter.
