Sennheiser To Introduce EW-DP SKP Plug-On Transmitter in October
At the end of October, the Sennheiser EW-DP SKP plug-on transmitter will complete the EW-DP series for videographers, broadcasters, and filmmakers. On board: 32-bit float recording, combined with the series’ 134 dB dynamic range of the transmitter, ensures distorted audio is fixed.
The recording function of the EW-DP SKP plug-on transmitter is like a safety net for the user, with a safety copy of their audio being stored on a micro SD card. The SKP additionally offers 24-bit, 48 kHz recording so that videographers can also opt for this less memory-intensive recording format.

The SKP is the most versatile family member of Evolution Wireless Digital, as it can be connected to dynamic and condenser XLR microphones (+48 V phantom power on board) as well as to lavalier mics with a 3.5 mm jack connector. Its low-cut filter can be switched off, so the SKP can also serve as an adjustment tool for PA systems.
The plug-on transmitter is powered by the BA 70 rechargeable battery or by two AA batteries. It will be available separately or as part of the EW-DP ENG SET, including the stackable EW-DP EK camera receiver and a bodypack transmitter with an ME 2 lavalier mic, giving videographers more options for recording their audio.
The system comes complete with a magnetic mounting plate kit, a BA 70 rechargeable battery, two standard AA batteries, a locking 3.5 mm TRS to 3.5 mm TRS cable, a locking 3.5 mm TRS to XLR cable, and a USB-C charging cable for the receiver.
Purpose-built for filmmaking and video applications, EW-DP is a fully digital UHF wireless microphone system with a new portable design and unmatched audio quality. At its heart is a compact, intelligent receiver that helps even novice users easily set up their audio. The EW-DP EK receiver features an innovative magnetic stacking system and a user-facing OLED display and can be conveniently controlled remotely via the Smart Assist app (new 2.0.5 update including the 1.9.0 update for the EW-DP EK receiver firmware available now at www.sennheiser.com/smart-assist-app). Thanks to EW-DP’s automated frequency coordination, videographers can get up and running quickly. EW-DP is not only intuitive and fast to set up but also helps users to troubleshoot their system. If any issues should occur, the system will guide users with Smart Notifications that give tips for troubleshooting and show them where to fix a problem.
