Sennheiser Intros New Tourguide 1039 System
Audio specialist Sennheiser [InfoComm 2012 booth C9736] introduced its new Tourguide 1039 system for guided tour, interpreting and assistive listening applications, claiming an audio frequency response of 25–15,000 Hz. To streamline setup, the EK 1039 is fitted with a Copy function. Once one receiver has been programmed, its settings can easily be transmitted via infrared to the other receivers. To allow for easy recognition and assignment to the listeners, the channels of the Tourguide EK 1039 receiver can be given a name, for example, “French” or “Spanish.” This channel name is part of the data that can be copied from receiver to receiver.
Using the EK 1039’s wide switching bandwidth, transmitters from the 2000 series are the ideal complement. Transmitters from the evolution wireless G3 series are also compatible (reducing the effective switching bandwidth to 42 MHz). The EK1039 ships with the BA 2015 rechargeable battery back, but can also be powered by standard AA batteries. Thanks to a standard 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, the EK 1039 can be used with a wide range headphones or earphones. The receiver can also be combined with Sennheiser’s induction accessories for the hearing impaired.
