Designed in collaboration with creative professionals for film and electronic news gathering (ENG) applications, the Sennheiser AVX EKP Camera-Mount Plug-In Receiver features an innovative pivoting design for attaching to a video camera's XLR microphone input without getting in the way of other camera accessories. The receiver rotates both clockwise and counter clockwise. It will click into place, as opposed to a tension-based design.

The digital receiver is fully self configuring, which makes setup fast and easy, while the system's link protection helps ensure reliable audio transmission. To save battery power, the unit will automatically switch on and off by detecting +48V phantom power from the camera. It will also automatically match the camera's input sensitivity without having to adjust the audio level on the wireless microphone.

The receiver comes equipped with a set of accessories for operation, including a BA 20 Energy Pack, a light shoe mount and an XLR to 3.5mm adapter for use with DSLRs, a belt clip, a USB cable, and a USB charger.

Can it be charged via D-Tap power source? (DC 11.9-17v) With a D tap to Micro USB cable? And is it operable while plugged in?
Asked by: Huay-Bing
You could use the AVX with a D-Tap power source, however you would need to ensure the voltage out to the unit is 5v. Here's a cable that could regulate the power: BH #GYDTAPMUSBLC. The AVX can be powered via micro-usb while in use.

Can the receiver be powered/charged via a Dtap source? (DC 11.9-17v, Unregulated). With a Dtap to Microusb cable?
Asked by: Huay-Bing
The voltage of the Dtap unit would be too much for the battery to handle. A standard usb power brick can be used to charge the batteries. BH #RARPPB010.

Is the internal battery removable? Can I purchase extra battery for more run time?
Asked by: Tim
Hi Tim - the EKP Receiver for our AVX system has removable lithium-ion batteries that are easily swapped. The battery model number for the EKP Receiver is BA 20 - it has a 4hr run time and can be recharged to 30% in 15 minutes, 60% in 30 minutes, 75% in 40 minutes and to full capacity in 75 minutes. Additionally, the battery can charge while in operation, so you can use a power bank and a USB micro cable to extend the operating time.

question

Is it possible to pair 3 recievers to one transmitter. In other words, if the talent wear the transmitter, can it transmit his audio to 3 cameras?
Asked by: Willie
Unfortunately it cannot. Each transmitter can only be paired with one receiver at a time. If your cameras are stationary, you could connect the AVX receiver to an audio mixer and split the output signal to your 3 cameras via cables.

question

One thing that is kind of unclear from the overview, video and all sources I have read online is what powers the receiver. I understand that if you use it with the 3.5mm output for a DSLR you will need the supplied power pack. But if it is connected via XLR to a camera that supplies phantom power will it be able to work endlessly just from the cameras power or does it still need the power pack. The weight of the item is listed without the weight of the power pack. If you need this power pack even with phantom power through XLR, how much is the total weight with power pack?
Asked by: Tommy
The receiver has a small battery attached. This is the way it's powered. When the receiver is attached to an xlr connection and phantom power is switched on the unit will see the phantom power and shut off and turn on when the camera is turned off or on. The xlr on the camera Does Not power the receiver. It only acts to save the on board battery of the receiver when the camera is turned off/on. The receiver battery lasts for approx. 4 hours.
