Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 Will Ship in April

Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Ceiling 2, the second generation of Sennheiser’s ceiling microphone, employs automatic, adaptive beamforming, a technology patented by Sennheiser that automatically focuses on the active speaker and follows their voice no matter where they move in the room. The ceiling microphone supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), Sennheiser Control Cockpit, Dante Domain Manager and the Crestron control platform. Via an open media protocol (API), TeamConnect Ceiling 2 can also be integrated into media and camera control systems.

According to Sennheiser, integration of the ceiling microphone is straightforward thanks to redundant Dante ports, Power over Ethernet, compatibility with the Sennheiser Control Cockpit app and an open media control protocol. TeamConnect Ceiling 2 is designed for medium-sized to large meeting rooms, where it is flush-mounted to the ceiling and powered via Ethernet. For larger or oddly shaped rooms, several ceiling microphones can be combined to ensure best coverage.

Thanks to 28 omni-directional microphone capsules integrated within the discrete microphone array, TeamConnect Ceiling 2 delivers excellent audio quality that is free from distracting ambient noise. This enhances the conference experience for remote participants through crystal-clear speech, which ensures stress-free listening and interaction for more productive meetings.

Once installed, according to Sennheiser, the microphone does not require any ongoing maintenance. It can be seamlessly integrated into both analog and digital environments, featuring the necessary connectors and Power over Ethernet capability. For integration into Dante networks, TeamConnect Ceiling 2 features two Dante ports for redundant operation and supports Dante Domain Manager.

TeamConnect Ceiling 2 can be controlled via the Sennheiser Control Cockpit application. Providing a digital workflow for network-enabled devices from Sennheiser, the software allows centralized administration, remote configuration and monitoring of multiple voice-tracking microphones within the network. Accessible on any device via a browser, Sennheiser Control Cockpit makes TeamConnect Ceiling 2 installations effortless to manage. For integration into larger media control systems, integrators can make use of Sennheiser’s open media control protocol (API) to offer remote configuration, control and monitoring of the TeamConnect Ceiling 2. For example, the ceiling microphone will be fully compatible with the Crestron control platform.
