    The true-diversity, two-channel EK 6042 can work with analogue and digital Sennheiser transmitters or a mix thereof across a bandwidth of 184 MHz. It is an ideal partner for Sennheiser's top-of-the-line Digital 9000 series and all analogue transmitters that feature HiDyn plus or HDX companders. The EK 6042 auto-configures to these transmitters via IR, saving set-up time and hassle for broadcast and filming crews who place a high value on sound quality and wireless reliability.

    The EK 6042 can be connected to PC or Mac platforms and be configured within the browser via its USB connector. There is no need to install any additional software. For example, users can import or export data as well as enter transmitter profiles and lists of managed or licensed frequencies.

    The 15-pin and the 25-pin adaptors are available separately to ensure compatibility with all common camera brands. The EK 6042 receiver is SuperSlot-compatible and works seamlessly with ARRI, Panasonic (both Unislot) and Sony cameras as well as Sound Devices equipment.

    For camcorders without an audio receiver slot, the EK 6042 can be camera-mounted using a special backpanel adaptor, which is also available for purchase separately. If the camera does not supply power to the receiver, a €œpiggyback€ power adaptor can be attached to this housing and fitted with two hot-swappable BA 61 battery packs that allow an exact read-out of the remaining operating time.

    The EK 6042 also features an auxiliary output on its top, which can be used for feeding audio externally to Sony cameras or for splitting the audio to any other device.
