Sennheiser has changed the game with a new wireless tabletop microphone solution made for large conference rooms and small huddle rooms. The system can be purchased with a set of two or four tabletop microphones, each includes a built-in speaker to hear the far side, as well as touch-sensitive buttons to raise and lower volume and mute. The configuration comes with a stylish charging tray and Bluetooth wireless communication to your laptop or desktop computer. Rather than have speakers installed in your ceiling or mounted to your walls, the built-in speakers provide clear audio right in front of you. A perfect solution for your teleconferencing needs.
Large spaces such as houses of worship, auditoriums and theaters normally call for large line-array speakers. In most instances, these speaker systems require a structural engineer to investigate whether or not the building can support the weight of the speakers. Furthermore, large line-array speaker systems are an aesthetic disruption with their bulky appearance. This complicated issue has been resolved with modern line-array column speakers which are tall and narrow and easy to blend into existing architecture.
Ceiling Microphone Arrays
More and more clients are requesting that there be no visible microphones, wired or wireless, in their conference rooms or training rooms. This prompted the first generation of ceiling microphones which were difficult to configure and the end result was not satisfactory. Today, Sennheiser offers a 2’x2’ ceiling microphone array which is pre-configured to locate the loudest person in the room. This model is perfect for rooms that have modular tables or workstations that are constantly moved around into different configurations. No matter what the configuration, the ceiling microphone array will always search for the loudest person in the room without any operator interaction. For a cheaper price, Shure offers a similar ceiling microphone array, only their model is configured by the technician to cover specific areas of the room or table. This solution is a great fit for rooms with fixed tables.
