Sennheiser and Neumann Debut Memory Mic, Wireless Mics and U 67 at IBC

Getting their European debut, Sennheiser and Neumann will showcase a range of media tools for tasks ranging from content creation to high-end production at IBC.

Sennheiser will preview the SK 6212 mini-bodypack transmitter for the Digital 6000 wireless microphone system. Available in early 2019, the mini-transmitter is for any broadcast, theatre or live audio show that requires an inconspicuous, ultra-compact package with the same reliable and intermodulation-free transmission as that offered by the other Digital 6000 transmitters.



Sennheiser’s new Memory Mic, a wireless microphone for smartphones, and the accompanying video app is for mobile journalists and content creators who rely on their mobile phone for quick and uncomplicated audio and video capture. The small, lightweight wireless microphone offers broadcast-quality sound and works at any distance from the smartphone.

The free Sennheiser video app offers one-touch synchronization of audio and video, sensitivity selection to optimally adapt the mic to the speaker and a mixing function to select the optimum balance between the standard audio recorded by the smartphone and the audio recorded via the Memory Mic.
