EVOLUTION WIRELESS 300 G4 SERIES
At ISE, Sennheiser presents the new evolution wireless 300 G4 series. The ew 300 G4 series is specifically geared to enterprises, hotels, conference centres, schools and universities. The systems are available in various frequency ranges in the UHF band; the switching bandwidth has been increased from 42 MHz to up to 88 MHz (up to 32 channels). The three-stage switchable output power (10/30/50 mW) increases the range of the transmitters, thus addressing more difficult RF conditions. All transmitters of the 300 series are equipped with mute switches to give the speaker control over transmission.
The 300 series includes a Vocal Set with handheld transmitter and MME 865 microphone head, a Lavalier Set with bodypack transmitter and ME 2-II clip-on microphone, a new Headmic Set with bodypack transmitter and the SL Headmic 1 – the professional neckband microphone for lectures and presentations.
Also new in the 300 series are Base Sets that can be used to cost-effectively expand or upgrade existing evolution wireless systems. These sets contain receiver and transmitter, but not the microphone or the microphone head, allowing for pre-existing accessories to be used in the upgraded system. The base sets are available with a handheld transmitter, bodypack transmitter or as a Combo Set with both options. An integrated network port on the 300 Series receiver enables remote control of the microphone systems, either through the Wireless Systems Manager or the Sennheiser Control Cockpit software.
The latest version of Sennheiser Control Cockpit software enables easier handling, maintenance and control of all wireless microphone solutions – all via web browser on smartphone, tablet and laptop. In addition to SpeechLine Digital Wireless, the new version of the Sennheiser Control Cockpit offers brilliantly convenient control of further microphone systems, which now includes the Digital 6000, evolution wireless G3 and the brand-new evolution wireless G4 series.
As a central control unit, Sennheiser Control Cockpit allows remote access to Sennheiser microphones in the network enabling real-time maintenance and control. From May 2018 it will also work with Sennheiser’s Digital 6000, evolution wireless G3 and evolution wireless G4 series. Usability and user-friendliness were key to developing Sennheiser Control Cockpit, and the software is constantly updated based on user feedback. It can thus be perfectly integrated in the user’s workflow to simplify daily routines with digital elements. As a result, users don’t have to adapt to the system: The system seamlessly integrates with familiar workflows, accelerating and simplifying them with digital control capabilities.
Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Ceiling is a state-of-the-art microphone solution for medium to large conference rooms. Instead of having many different microphones throughout the room, TeamConnect Ceiling uses a single central microphone array equipped with 29 high-quality condenser capsules – a reliable, visually inconspicuous ceiling microphone for audio and video conferences.
Thanks to innovative beamforming technology, TeamConnect Ceiling automatically focuses on the voice of the active speaker with the precision of a shotgun microphone. This ensures excellent speech intelligibility, regardless of whether the person currently speaking is sitting, standing or moving freely around the room. The need for a fixed seating arrangement is eliminated. This automatic position detection combined with dynamic directivity adjustment is currently unique in the market. The Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling Microphone is able to cover an area of up to 60 square meters and deliver excellent audio quality. For larger groups or unusual floor plans, additional ceiling microphones can be included in the system.
