At InfoComm 2019 (June 12-14, Orange County Convention Center, booth 5561), Sennheiser will highlight its business and education solutions portfolio, with a focus on its new TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2) microphone array.
Sennheiser will offer live booth demonstrations of TeamConnect Ceiling 2, which uses its patented automatic, dynamic beamforming technology to deliver a virtual meeting experience.
TeamConnect Ceiling 2, which has been shipping since April this year, is Sennheiser’s flagship AV conferencing solution and employs its beamforming technology to follow the active speaker wherever he or she moves in the room. Unlike ceiling microphones with static beamforming technology that work with predefined speaking zones, TCC2 captures the speaker no matter where they are in the room. There is no need to alter the setup when the number of participants changes or when a different seating arrangement is chosen. It also caters to any type of meeting without further adjustments.
TCC2 can be used together with existing analogue conference systems, or integrated into fully digital systems, and can also be controlled and monitored over the network. TCC2 supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), Sennheiser Control Cockpit, Dante Domain Manager and provides an open media protocol for third-party control platforms such as Crestron.
The audio specialist will also be demonstrating the latest version of its Sennheiser Control Cockpit software at Infocomm 2019. This enables users to set up and manage TeamConnect Ceiling 2 along with SpeechLine Digital Wireless systems, which are also on display at InfoComm. The software is accessible in web browsers on any smartphone, tablet or notebook. It offers a dashboard overview of all network-enabled Sennheiser devices, while simplifying adjusting settings for individual or multiple devices.
Other highlights of version 3.1.0 include out-of-range detection for wireless microphones and the possibility to select exclusion zones for TCC2. When activated, out-of-range activation will notify the system administrator via e-mail and/or text when a wireless microphone leaves the range of the receiver. For TCC2, Sennheiser Control Cockpit version 3.1.0 offers the possibility to define vertical exclusion zones in order to minimise noise from projectors or air-conditioning units. The free software can be downloaded here.
Created specifically for speech applications in corporate and educational environments such as universities, Sennheiser’s SpeechLine Digital Wireless microphone line is said to provide high levels of speech intelligibility and sound quality. It is a scalable system that is ideal for company/campus-wide installations with flexible configuration options. Sennheiser will also be displaying MobileConnect, its WiFi-based system for accessible hearing. The system is ideal for applications in universities and employs a BYOD philosophy so students can connect using their own device to participate in lectures with personalised audio. MobileConnect also supports applications for use in theatre, opera and musical environments.
