Professionals or anyone who has ever been involved in videography will understand how important it is to have a high-quality sound recording for your video. It's the sound that completes the video otherwise it would not make sense
to have a high-quality video shoot for an interview if listeners cannot make out the audio. Traditional solutions (which are still used at large) would involve the use of clip microphones combined with digital recorders for storing of audio
files. An additional receiver may be used in such a setting if a wireless transmission is required and this does not erase the fact that multiple cables would be used in such connections.
As it looks, the system already is complicated and if you add the fact that additional settings will be required such as setting the frequencies for
receivers and microphone and then this becomes a task to be handled only by professionals.
But thanks to the Sennheiser AVX-835, a simple plug, and play solution is in the market. This is a handheld wireless audio system that allows for recording of digital audios using both DSLR cameras and camcorders.
The AVX-835 is available as a set that consists of different accessories including a wireless handheld microphone, a body pack receiver plus a whole range of other accessories that will be used to attach the receiver to other
components including DSLR cameras and camcorders. The first thing you will notice immediately is the incredible size (or a lacking of) the AVX receiver which is plug-on. It is totally incomparable to traditional E3 receiver units by
Sennheiser which were three times as large with equal performance.
Plug 'n' Play
As soon as you plug the AVX receiver, it turns on and sums up the setup process just like that. This is a true definition of a plug and play set up and remains
constant when used with a whole range of different devices. These include DSLR cameras, audio recording units, and traditional video camcorders. That's not
all, with the AVX-835, selection of the best-operating frequency depending on the conditions is automatic, and as soon as you plug in the receiver, the wireless audio system is ready to go.
Adaptability and Ease of Use
The AVX-835 has been designed for a wide range of applications. Its lightweight is making it ideal for field use and the plug and play feature spices it up even
better. This wireless handheld audio system is a perfect fit for video journalists and broadcast field crews, videographers covering weddings or video-bloggers
because of its adaptability. Users can also use it with less professional training as there is literally no setting up involved.
The AVX-835 comes with a converter accessory, an XLR to 3.5mm, which makes it possible to establish a direct connection that allows for the plugging of the
AVX receiver unit into a DSLR camera. The direct mounting of the AVX receiver onto the DSLR's hot shoe sums up the most basic operation of an audio system and
a camera. When using the DSLRs, your ability to monitor audio will be compromised as DSLRs do not have audio monitoring options. Not to worry though
as the small size of the AVX receiver allows for the transmitter to be plugged directly into devices that have XLR jacks such as traditional camcorders.
Economical on Power
The AVX-835 switches on and off automatically to save your camera power. This makes it a highly applicable solution for outdoor activities such as shooting
documentaries since it offers a longer, non-interrupted service. The microphone is also superb for shooting corporate videos or interviews.
The AVX-835 comes with a rotatable and compact receiver fond around the XLR connector, and this helps in ensuring a safety experience as it avoids collision with other devices being used that are mounted on the camera.
Note: The main difference between AVX-835 and AVX-835S is the latter one come with a mute switch
