In addition, the plug-on transmitter incorporates a Sennheiser HDX compander system, a defeatable pilot tone squelch, and is equipped with a frequency range from 80 Hz to 18 kHz.

Will this work with the Senheiser AVX Wireless ...

Will this work with the Senheiser AVX Wireless system? I want to plug this into an MKH416 and record boom audio wirelessly into camera.
Asked by: Andrew
No, the Sennheiser SKP 500 G4 Pro Wireless Plug-On Transmitter is not compatible for use with the AVX system. The G4 series is a UHF system (this particular transmitter operates on the 470 to 558 MHz band) while the AVX series is a digital system that operates at 1.9 GHz. Sennheiser does not offer a plug-on transmitter for AVX. The G4 series system is a better option if you need to use a plug-on transmitter that can supply phantom power for your MKH416. The SKP 500 transmitter is available separately or as a complete system with the EK 500 transmitter -- Sennheiser EW 500 BOOM G4 Camera-Mount Wireless Plug-On Microphone System with No Mic - AW+: 470 to 558 MHz (B&H # SEEW500BG4AW).

Will this work with the EW 100 G3 receiver?

Will this work with the EW 100 G3 receiver?
Asked by: Andrew
The G4 series is backwards compatible with the G3 series, so you can program this transmitter to work with your EW 100 G3 receiver. The 500 G4 series divides the available UHF range for wireless microphones into two large 88 MHz blocks. Just be sure to get the appropriate range that includes the frequencies for your G3 receiver.

I have the Sennheiser EW 112P G3-B Omni-directional EW system. Will this work with the G3 receiver?
Asked by: Brian
Hi Brian - while Evolution Wireless G4 is backward compatible with EW G3, the products need to operate within the same frequency range. Your current product is the EW 112P G3 in the B-Range, which is 626-668MHz and the AW+ range of this SKP 500 is 470 - 558MHz, so they wouldn't be compatible. The larger issue is that the FCC has effectively banned wireless devices in the 600MHz range, effective July 13, 2020 - to help offset the costs of transitioning to new, legal devices, Sennheiser is offering a rebate on the trade-in of 600MHz products and the EW 112P G4 sets are also on sale through the end of April 2020 at B&H.

WHAT RECEIVER DO I NEED FOR THIS?

WHAT RECEIVER DO I NEED FOR THIS?
Asked by: Robert
Ideally you will get the EK500 receiver (for portable/camera work) or the EM500 for rack mount). It is also compatible with the 100 and 300 EW Evolution receivers, but in that case, not all frequencies of the transmitter will be available on the receiver. If you want it for camera work, this transmitter is also sold as a kit with a receiver, or as a kit with a receiver, body pack transmitter, MKE2 lav. Item# SEEW500BG4G1 and Item# SEEW500FILM1

Is this SKP 500 G4 plug-on transmitter compatible with the EK 100 G4 Receiver (instead of the EK 500), or with an older G3 receiver?
Asked by: Bertrand
Yes, the SKP 500 G4 plug-on transmitter is compatible for use with the EK 100 G4 receiver or an older G3 receiver, but only if the components operate on the same frequency band.

Can I use with MKH 70?

Can I use with MKH 70?
Asked by: Mikhail
Hello Mikhail - the SKP 500 is capable of providing the 48V Phantom Power required by the MKH 70; please note that the SKP 500 is a transmitter only and you'll need to pair it with a receiver (i.e. EK 500 G4) or purchase a system (i.e. EW 500 BOOM G4) to ensure you have all the appropriate products for a successful shoot.
