InfoComm 2016 – Sennheiser expands conferencing range31 May 2016
Sennheiser will present a range of new conferencing solutions this June at InfoComm, including the expanded TeamConnect Wireless system, SpeechLine Digital Wireless microphone range, Speakerphone series and MobileConnect audio streaming solution.
“We are excited to be bringing a range of solutions to Las Vegas this year that demonstrate our commitment to setting new benchmarks through innovation, ease of use and – naturally – Sennheiser’s characteristically uncompromising approach to delivering excellent sound quality,” said Andy Niemann, director of business communications at Sennheiser. “We are delighted to be enhancing this offering further by presenting three game changing products at the show – TeamConnect Wireless, TeamConnect Ceiling and SpeechLine Digital Wireless.”
TeamConnect Wireless is a portable, wireless audio conferencing system for up to 24 people. It is made up of four units linked by wireless DECT connections that allow the system to be set up in virtually any room or table set up.
Andy Niemann explained: “With TeamConnect Wireless, Sennheiser has boldly staked out its leadership in professional conferencing. It lets teams simply link a smartphone, dial-in the conference and concentrate on a successful meeting. TeamConnect Wireless is the simplest and fastest way to set up conferences for up to 24 people in any room or table arrangement.”
Launching at InfoComm is a new version of TeamConnect Wireless that includes a new charging tray option, an alternative to the travel/charging case that can be supplied with TeamConnect Wireless.
In addition, a new ceiling mic, TeamConnect Ceiling, can be experienced with the entire TeamConnect line. It’s a fixed-installation, ceiling-mounted microphone that frees users from the limitations of table mounted mics. It uses beamforming technology that automatically focuses on whichever person in the room is speaking, wherever they are sitting or standing within a 60sqm range.
Also on show is the SpeechLine Digital Wireless microphone solution designed exclusively for speech. The system has been recently updated with new features including multi-room functionality, which makes it possible to adjust the transmission power to address different scales of installations for simultaneous use of multiple systems on the license-free 1.9GHz frequency.
Additionally, Sennheiser recently announced that the range is to be compatible with Dante to support audio over IP networks, increasing the scope of applications.
Sennheiser’s Speakerphone series, SP 10 and SP 20, will also be showcased. Designed for the mobile business professional, the lightweight, portable conferencing solution facilitates personal and small group conference calls via PC or mobile/tablet with its user-friendly ‘plug in and talk’ simplicity. Certified for Skype for Business and optimised for major UC and softphone brands, Sennheiser’s Speakerphones offer voice clarity and echo cancellation to ensure a natural communication experience.
And finally, MobileConnect delivers assistive listening to smartphones and the ability to stream live audio to mobile devices. The solution consists of a streaming server providing the audio stream over WiFi, which users can connect to via the MobileConnect app on their own smartphone. There are a wide range of applications and MobileConnect can be quickly installed and offers an effective way to complement digital signage or offer assistive listening.
