Sennheiser has announced an update to its Sennheiser Control Cockpit. According to the company, Control Cockpit is a software tool that simplifies controlling and monitoring large microphone setups. Besides design and usability enhancements, the latest version, 4.0.0, now adds the ability to monitor the new SpeechLine Multi-Channel Receiver and the EM 6000 receiver from Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 series, in addition to evolution wireless G3 and G4, SpeechLine and the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone. This makes the software a universal tool for corporations and education facilities.
Sennheiser Control Cockpit now features a “location-based Mute” functionality: All devices in e.g. a room can be grouped and their mute switches synchronized, so that all devices can be muted and unmuted together, either centrally via the Sennheiser Control Cockpit or locally on one of the devices. Location-based Mute is available for TeamConnect Ceiling 2 and SpeechLine Digital Wireless, including the new Multi-Channel Receiver. Also, the software now employs SSL encryption to make data transmission between the user interface and the host server even more secure.
The user interface of the software has had a refresh, too, and you can switch between Details View and Monitoring View. Also, the software is now available in a Chinese language version.
Sennheiser Control Cockpit provides centralized monitoring and control of Sennheiser microphone systems. The software provides IT staff with a real-time overview of all networked devices, including their location and status. It is accessible from anywhere in the network on all common platforms.
