beyerdynamic, the German manufacturer of microphones, headphones and wireless microphone systems, has introduced the KE 900 Camera Receiver, made to withstand the extreme conditions of ENG inside its durable, weatherproof aluminum housing.

The KE 900 offers a bandwidth of 24 MHz and is compatible with transmitters from the company’s Opus 900 wireless system. Using 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.

The KE 900 comes equipped with an LCD display that indicates the battery level of the transmitter (5-stage), frequency and channel, squelch, AF and RF level. With 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.
