Sennheiser has announced an update to its Digital 6000 wireless microphone system, adding a Command function and secondary Dante port.

Sennheiser Digital 6000Firmware v2.0’s Command – or talkback function – enables communication between an artist wishing to communicate with the monitor engineer or a broadcaster seeking to establish a talkback link from an onsite reporter. To operate a talkback channel, users have a choice of several transmitter options – with the SKM 9000 COM handheld or the SK 6000 or SK 9000 bodypack transmitters can be made COM-ready by connecting the KA 9000 COM command cable.

Any output of the receiver can be freely assigned as a talkback channel, and programmed to either work as ‘push-to-talk’ or ‘push-to-mute’. On EM 6000 Dante receivers, dual Dante channels are supported. A COM icon appears on the receiver display to indicate that the Command function is in operation. The icon will invert its colour once the command button on the transmitter or the KA 9000 COM is pressed.

Firmware v2.0 also improves the Auto Setup function of Digital 6000. It is now possible to distribute transmitter sync settings from one master receiver to all associated receivers. Also included is a completely new sync option, Frequency Only. This option only changes the transmission frequency, leaving all other settings untouched – a feature in demand with touring productions.

The new software also provides an Audio Mute for the receiver as well as soft backlighting to all function buttons and switches, facilitating work in dark environments.

A secondary Dante port receiver increases reliability by enabling the operation of a redundant network. The port can alternatively be used to daisychain several receivers. Early adopters of the Digital 6000 Dante needing a Dante-type receiver with two ports can take advantage of the Sennheiser swap service – the swap period runs1 April until 31 May 2018.
