from a beyerdynamic press release
FARMINGDALE, NY, MAY 2, 2006 beyerdynamic, a leading manufacturer of exceptional microphones, headphones and wireless
microphone systems, introduced the KE 800 Camera Receiver at NAB 2006. Designed for professional camera applications, this
UHF receiver is rugged, portable, and easy to operate.
In broadcast situations, where time is often a factor, the KE 800 can be a timesaver by automatically selecting the right
transmission frequency for each situation. Using its ACT-Function (Automatic Channel Targeting), the KE 800 searches for an
interference-free frequency to transmit via infrared to the matching handheld or pocket transmitter of beyerdynamics Opus
800 and Opus 500 Mk II wireless systems and locks in the frequency.
"Reliability and versatility are essential, especially in electronic news gathering situations, which can vary
greatly depending on location and conditions," comments Alan Feckanin, Video and Production Business Area Manager for
beyerdynamic USA. "The KE 800s pilot tone recognition and adjustable squelch ensure a safe reception, free from noise
and signal dropouts even in the most unpredictable operating environments."
The KE 800 comes equipped with an LC-display that indicates the battery level of the transmitter, frequency and channel,
squelch, AF and RF level. Due to the LOCK-function on the KE 800, transmissions can be protected against inadvertently
pressing buttons. Accessories, such as adapter plates to connect the receiver directly to camera slots of Ikegami or Sony
cameras, turn the KE 800 into a universal tool.
