Sennheiser brings simplicity to wireless with Evolution Wireless Digital. The series introduces an easy, app-based workflow while retaining all the professionality, multi-channel capability and reliability that users have come to expect of UHF and 1G8 microphones.
(1) The Smart Assist App
As the engineer in your pocket, the app guides you through the set-up in easy steps. An intelligent set-up automatically creates reliable wireless connections, no wireless expertise is required. You can name the channels to make it easy to stay organized, and have access to all system settings. Bluetooth Low Energy allows for remote access to the system and makes sync’ing with the receiver convenient. The app also includes tutorial videos presented by Benny Franke to get you started and provides the operating instructions of the systems all in one place.
(2) Microphone transmitters that can handle any audio level
Evolution Wireless Digital transmitters have an input dynamic range of 134 dB, five times more than the usual 120 dB. This means that they can pick up everything from a very soft whisper to a jet engine at 50 yards’ distance – and this eliminates the need for a sensitivity setting on the transmitter entirely. The receiver has been set to a gain value covering most applications, which you can easily change if desired. A new user interface makes this super-easy – no complex sub-menus, everything is available at a glance.
(3) No frequency calculation – and more room to manoeuvre
The app will scan the environment to find open frequencies. And as EW-D has borrowed tech from Sennheiser’s top Digital 6000 and Digital 9000 series, the wireless microphone systems do not generate any significant intermodulation products. This not only makes for more room in a given frequency window, but the app can also simply set the wireless links at 600 kHz intervals without any frequency calculation and is therefore able to fit in more frequencies than a standard mic system would be able to.
(4) Exceptional specs in every detail
EW-D has a low latency of 1.9 milliseconds and a transmitter battery life of up to 12 hours with the BA 70 rechargeable battery pack. This will take you all the way from soundcheck through to the end of the show and beyond. A bandwidth of 56 MHz with up to 90 channels per band makes it easy to find space even in the most crowded of RF environments.
(5) Fantastic audio
As a digital system, EW-D does not use a compander. Gone are the associated noise floor and artefacts – the system will sound like it’s plugged in with a cable.
(6) Full range of pro accessories
From newly designed antennas to antenna splitters, boosters, charging sets – you will find everything to expand your system and accommodate larger multi-channel set-ups for in-person and streamed live shows.
EW-D handheld transmitters couple with any Sennheiser or Neumann wireless capsule. This includes the Neumann KK 205 and KK 204, the new Sennheiser MM 435 and MM 445 as well as the Digital 9000 capsules – a first at this price level.
Evolution Wireless Digital is available now, with a choice of handheld, instrument, lavalier, headmic, combo and base sets.
