Audio specialist Sennheiser will showcase its new EK6042 dual-channel camera-mount receiver for the first time in the Middle East at CABSAT 2016.
Billed as the world’s first receiver capable of working with both analogue and digital transmitters, the EK6042 will be exhibited alongside many other audio solutions for broadcast, studio and live production applications.
CABSAT will mark the culmination of Sennheiser’s AVX contest which has seen scores of the region’s up-and-coming filmmakers submit their entries in the hopes of winning Sennheiser’s audio for video solutions. At the exhibition, an esteemed panel of judges which includes Allie Ghaffour, Head of Audio for Al Jazeera and Achim Gleissner, Commercial Manager for the Broadcast & Media Segment for Sennheiser, will pick three winners.
“This competition has been our way of engaging with and supporting local content producers. We really want to encourage up and coming local talent to create interesting and engaging content that demonstrates their audio and video skills. We’re looking forward to seeing the level of talent that we have here and also to awarding an excellent audio for video solution based around AVX that will help them with their future projects and productions,” said Mig Cardamone, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sennheiser Middle East.
In line with this competition, Sennheiser intends to focus on its AVX solution at the show. “The system itself takes care of all the necessary settings making it the ideal fit for videographers on the go, field reporters, and any application that requires professional audio quality without the worry of frequency, interference, sensitivity or other technical aspects,” Cardamone said.
