Sennheiser EW-DP EK(700051)

The Sennheiser EW-DP EK is a camera-mount, digital UHF receiver for use with EW-D SK bodypack, EW-D SKM-S handheld, or EW-D SKP plug-on transmitters. Designed for DIY cameramen, videographers, creators, and journalists working in the field without a crew, the EW-DP EK is easy to set up and simple to operate with pro-level features that deliver an intuitive user experience for first-time and experienced users alike.

The EW-DP EK's wide 56 MHz bandwidth, intelligent switching diversity reception with two antennas and auto-scan with 2240 frequencies work to provide rock-solid wireless performance, even in challenging RF environments. Bluetooth capabilities allow you to remotely sync components and change settings from your phone using the Smart Assist app, while Smart Notifications provide you with troubleshooting and system guidance. A front-facing OLED display allows for easy menu navigation and at-a-glance system status at any angle, in any light.

To ensure peace of mind during long hours on set, the EW-DP EK can be powered via two AA batteries or the BA 70 lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack (all included). Power can also be supplied through the USB port, allowing it to run for numerous hours on a USB power pack or indefinitely, if you have access to AC.

Versatile Mounting Options

In addition to the cold shoe mount with a 1/4"-20 thread on the bottom, the receiver comes with a magnetic cheese plate that provides flexible mounting options for camera cages and accessory arms.

The magnetic mounting system lets you securely stack a second transmitter right on top when you’re shooting two on-camera personalities. And Sennheiser offers a combiner cable that will allow you to record both receivers to a camera’s single 3.5mm input.

Control from Your Phone with Smart Assist App-No Wireless Expertise Required

EW-D Smart Assist app (free download available separately) provides automated setup, operation, and monitoring using any iOS or Android device via Bluetooth. Auto frequency coordination creates reliable wireless connections for up to 16 systems, no wireless expertise required.

Remote access to system settings whether at camera or across the set allows for quick and discreet adjustments on the fly—without having to bring the transmitter close to the receiver. If your phone is not available, you can fully operate your system using the buttons on the receiver.

Guidance When You Need It Most

EW-DP is a wireless system that troubleshoots for you. Smart Notifications provide suggestions to errors that occur when setting up or operating the system. If your audio clips, Smart Notifications will suggest lowering the gain. When your battery is running low, the system will alert you.


If you try to operate on a blocked frequency, you will be prompted to select another. If your transmitter and receiver are not linked, you’ll be prompted to press sync. And if the talent accidentally mutes their transmitter, you’ll be notified and will have the option to disable the mute remotely.
