DMN Newswire--2013-10-14-- Old Lyme, CT, October 8, 2013:Electric mobility was the overriding topic at the 65th International Motor Show (IAA) in September, and all relevant manufacturers were keen to present their perspectives for a battery-powered future at the exhibition centre in Frankfurt. Numerous EK 1039 Tourguide receivers from Sennheiser played a vital role in visitor tours and press conferences.Unlike the long-established internal combustion engine, electric mobility and alternative drive systems still present many unanswered questions. Many stands at the IAA provided information on these subjects that was easy to understand ? in both a figurative and a literal sense: numerous exhibitors relied on the proven Tourguide systems from audio specialist Sennheiser for their press conferences and visitor tours. The sturdy EK 1039 receivers with their exceptionally long audio transmission range are a guarantee for optimum speech intelligibility and excellent sound. Incorrect operation is effectively ruled out by an adjustable lock function. Up to 32 visitor groups in parallel can be integrated into an interpreting system, and there is also the possibility to connect induction loops to the EK 1039 as an alternative to headphones. The companies supplying the Sennheiser systems included Ellerbrock Konferenztechnik and acoustic service GmbH.Jürgen Wulf, Sales Director Integrated Systems at Sennheiser Vertrieb und Service GmbH & Co. KG, commented: "Due to its high switching bandwidth and compatibility to the Sennheiser 2000 series and the wireless transmitters of the ew G3 100/300/500 series, the EK 1039 is extremely versatile and offers maximum transmission reliability ? vitally important in an environment like the International Motor Show in particular with its complex wireless transmission conditions. The high-quality design of the EK 1039 also fits perfectly to the premium image projected by the brands with their multimedia presentations."
