With the new EW-DP UHF wireless range, Sennheiser is introducing the fifth generation of its wireless microphone series, which is aimed specifically at filmmakers, content creators but also broadcast users. At the heart of the all-digital UHF wireless system is a compact, "intelligent" receiver (EW-DP EK, €349 MSRP), which is designed to enable even beginners to record sound via UHF safely and easily.
The fact that Sennheiser also thought about solo shooters when developing the EW-DP Receivergrs is especially evident in the new "intelligence" built in here, which according to Sennheiser requires little RF or audio knowledge. For example, the system sends alerts for audio clipping, low battery, busy frequencies, muted transmitters and unconnected devices. All notifications also include a suggestion on how to quickly resolve the problem.
Sennheiser&s EW-DP is the first portable wireless system with magnetically stackable receivers, a user-facing OLED display and ergonomically designed controls, according to Sennheiser. Thanks to automatic frequency coordination, the EW-DP system is said to be quickly ready for use: The receiver searches for a free frequency (which can also be initiated via the Smart Assist app), then the transmitter is synchronized via Bluetooth.
The EW-DP receiver can be powered by a BA 70 lithium-ion battery, two standard AA batteries, or via USB, for example from a powerbank. Sennheiser (finally) relies on USB-C here. The battery indicator shows the remaining runtime in hours and minutes. With the included BA 70 battery, the runtime of the transmitter should be up to 12 hours and that of the receiver up to 7 hours.
The radio link can be set up either directly on the receiver via an OLED display facing the operator and corresponding buttons, or via EW-DP Smart Assist app, which can be used to set up, operate and monitor the EW-DP system on any Android or iOS device via Bluetooth.
The new Sennheiser EW-DP radio link features 134 dB input dynamic range for distortion-free transmission and up to 56 MHz switching bandwidth for maximum flexibility in frequency selection.
The latency is specified by Sennheiser with 1.9ms and is thus clearly below corresponding 2.4 GHz systems.
Here is an overview of all techspecs:
All mini-jack sockets on the receiver, pocket transmitter, etc., are secured against pulling with screw locks. In the scope of supply of the sets are among other things mini-jack mini-jack as well as mini-jack XLR cable.
And also a backup recording function (on micro SD card!) is now integrated in the EW-DP system.
A corresponding card slot has been built into the EW-DP SKP plug-on transmitter, which then makes additional 24-bit, 48 kHz on-board recordings possible. With the EW-DP SKP plug-on transmitter, all wired XLR mics can be converted into wireless mics. Quite practical for setups on the boom to prevent cable noise.
The new EW-PD series is said to be available for order now and can be purchased as a set or individually. The three available sets always include the EW-DP EK receiver. The sets then additionally include either a bodypack transmitter and lavalier or the plug-on transmitter for XLR mics. All EW-DP sets cost 699 euros.
