Audio specialist Sennheiser has been an active supporter of The Photography Show & The Video Show for the last four years, showcasing an array of its latest microphones and having a team of experts on hand offering talks and demos, as well as answering pundit’s questions about choosing best microphones for specific audio for video applications. This year, the company is pleased to embrace the show’s new online format and present its newest offerings, including the MKE 200 mini-microphone, on its virtual Sennheiser booth on 20-21 September.
A full range of wireless microphones for audio for video applications, including the award-winning XS Wireless Digital, AVX, and evolution wireless G4, will be showcased. The company will also have its latest line up of on-camera mics, the MKE 400, MKE 440 stereo mic, MKE 600, and the newest member of the MKE family, the MKE 200 mini-microphone, designed for easy on-camera use with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras and mobile devices, where it ensures clean and crisp audio and gives that professional touch to video clips.
“After the show’s cancellation earlier this year due to the pandemic, we are very pleased to be returning to what has now evolved into a virtual festival celebrating the latest offerings, as well as the work of talented individuals across the filming and photography industries,” says David Atkinson, Sennheiser’s Trade Marketing Manager.
