At Infocomm 2018, Sennheiser is previewing the next generation of its innovative ceiling microphone, TeamConnect Ceiling 2. 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. It will be compatible with Sennheiser’s Control Cockpit software for efficient remote management, and offer remote configuration and monitoring via an open media control protocol (API), allowing for easy integration into media systems and camera control applications.
“Ensuring optimum connectivity has been key in the development of TeamConnect Ceiling 2. This ground-breaking ceiling array microphone comes with Dante and PoE network integration, is enabled for remote control via the Sennheiser Control Cockpit app, or can easily be integrated into other media control systems using the open media control protocol,” said Jens Werner, Portfolio Manager, Business Communication at Sennheiser.
Thanks to 28 omni-directional microphone capsules integrated within the discrete ceiling 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.
