Sennheiser Debuts Audio Technology for BlueJeans and the New SDW 5000 Series

Sennheiser’s booth will feature Blue Jeans Network, Inc., provider of a video-based meetings platform, a cloud service that connects desktops, mobile devices and room systems in a single video meeting. Sennheiser’s portfolio of unified communications products unified communications are now fully interoperable with BlueJeans’ videoconferencing platform, including Sennheiser’s wired double-side models of the Culture, Circle and Century series as well as the wireless MB 660 headset. In addition to enabling mobile collaboration through screen sharing and cloud recording, BlueJeans’ solutions deliver Dolby Voice Audio, which is supported and enhanced by Sennheiser products.
Sennheiser will also demo its newly-launched SDW 5000 Series of headsets for enterprise environments at the show. This model is specifically designed for today’s mobile, collaborative workplaces to accommodate the evolving needs of the office environment of the future. It features 128bit authentication keys and DECT Security certification. Plus, the unit’s USB port, call merging feature and multiple headset conferencing can be disabled in high-security environments.
The SDW 500 Series headsets leverage Super Wideband sound, an emerging sound standard for headset communication, delivering clear calls with a more natural sound. The SDW 5000’s dual-microphone noise cancellation filters background noise and the own-voice-detector helps suppress disturbances in between words, for quality transmissions with minimized detractions.
In addition, Sennheiser will spotlight the new TeamConnect Ceiling 2 product at the event. The new ceiling array microphone, available from October 2018, will offer superior audio quality for voice and video conferences thanks to its automatic adaptive beamforming technology. This automatically focuses on the voice of a speaker in the room regardless of their position to make productive meetings effortless. TeamConnect Ceiling 2 will offer even greater versatility and interoperability with support for Dante networks and Power over Ethernet.
