Sennheiser Updates MobileConnect Wi-Fi for Larger Audio Streams


Sennheiser has updated its MobileConnect Wi-Fi streaming solution for simpler use and a new “Standalone Use” mode. MobileConnect’s new Standalone Mode allows higher education institutions to integrate MobileConnect into their existing Wi-Fi network for assistive listening support. This plug-and-play mode is especially attractive for smaller systems and first installations, yet the solution is still fully scalable. Each MobileConnect station provides two audio streams for up to 100 users.

Sennheiser’s MobileConnect BYOD streaming solution provides assistive listening support over Wi-Fi. Updates include faster integration, connection for larger networked systems and the free MobileConnect Manager which caters to large and software-controlled MobileConnect setups. Version 1.3.0 of the software offers a new Manager dashboard and API interface.

The MobileConnect Manager dashboard now gives ample system information at a glance, such as status messages for troubleshooting purposes, information about software updates, statistics for active MobileConnect Stations and streaming channels as well as the possibility to download a log of system status messages.

Artboard2With the MobileConnect API, Sennheiser opens MobileConnect for connection to third-party systems. For example, IT managers are now able to have QR codes for the streaming channels automatically displayed on digital room signage solutions.

In addition, Sennheiser has updated its TeamConnect Ceiling 2, adding a free TruVoicelift feature. An advanced frequency shift algorithm delivers a few crucial extra dB of gain and a feedback prevention mute function. Also, during pauses in speaking, a noise gate will be activated that mutes TeamConnect Ceiling 2 to prevent any background noise from being amplified.
