Wedemark, September 11, 2019 – On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at 11 a.m. EDT (5 p.m. CEST), Sound & Video Contractor will bring together experts from both Sennheiser and Audinate to host a webinar titled “The Advantages of Ceiling Microphones with Dynamic Beamforming Technology and Dante.” The webinar will focus on Sennheiser’s innovative TeamConnect Ceiling 2 – which is Dante Domain Manager ready — and will address how Dante brings IT’s best practices to the AV world by making audio networking more secure, scalable and controllable than ever before. The webinar is open to all who register on the event registration website.
Rather than using many static beam zones and multiple DSP channels, Sennheiser's TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone needs only a single dynamic microphone beam and a Dante network to pick up superior audio in any conference room.
Optimizing speech intelligibility with 28 individual, omni-directional microphone capsules, TeamConnect Ceiling 2 automatically focuses on the voice of the speaker in a meeting, regardless of positioning. Simple to integrate and compatible with existing audio and video conferencing systems, the microphone array automatically adapts to any room layout without reconfiguration.
Once installed, the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone does not require any ongoing maintenance. It can be seamlessly integrated into both analogue and digital environments, featuring the necessary connectors and Power over Ethernet capability. For integration into Dante networks, the microphone features two Dante ports for redundant operation and supports Dante Domain Manager.
