Enterprises and educational institutions spend a lot of time and money servicing their microphones manually. Checking the battery status and function of each device can be a challenge when microphones are dispersed among conference rooms, offices or auditoriums. Usually only a few people are responsible for a large number of devices, which can result in longer delays in the case of outages: Sennheiser Control Cockpit software takes on these challenges with ease and provides digital workflows that optimise daily business routines.
Full remote control for campus-style setups
The professional remote software allows facility managers, IT personnel and service staff to set up, monitor and troubleshoot the audio system of large lecture rooms, conferences, meeting and presentation rooms easier than ever – on the go or at their individual workplace.
As a central control unit, Sennheiser Control Cockpit allows remote access to all wireless Sennheiser microphones in the network which enables easier handling, maintenance and control. For seamless access to all device settings and status information, the Sennheiser Control Cockpit is available via web browser on smartphone, tablet and laptop on all operating systems (iOS, OS X, Windows, Android). The main view of the Sennheiser Control Cockpit displays global statistics for all devices in the network. In campus-style setups, you can easily check at a glance if the entire system of several hundred devices works properly. Besides
the main view, the device and the location list, the Sennheiser Control Cockpit also provides a dedicated operator’s view for room-based live monitoring during events.
True interaction between hardware and software
Bi-directional interaction between hardware and software takes place in real-time and system changes of either individual or several microphones can be made remotely. Sennheiser Control Cockpit features an elaborate notification system that allows preventive action: Should a single microphone develop an issue, push messaging alerts a team member who can address the situation from afar.
Staff members can be individually defined with the Sennheiser Control Cockpit as recipients of alert notifications. This workflow optimisation saves an organisation time and money, while also improving the working experience of employees.
The Sennheiser Control Cockpit adds devices automatically, via IP address range or CSV import. All RF and audio settings can easily be adjusted and tested. Global remote monitoring of status information concerning audio, RF and battery settings helps to keep all devices running at all times. For optimal maintenance processes, Sennheiser Control Cockpit offers seamless update procedures of software and hardware. It delivers instant notification in case of available updates and allows for batch update of multiple devices at once. The continuous evaluation and display of service relevant information such as battery health guarantees reliable operation.
New core control software for Sennheiser’s wireless microphones
In addition to SpeechLine Digital Wireless, the 2.0 version of the Sennheiser Control Cockpit offers convenient control of further microphone systems, which will include the Digital 6000, evolution wireless G3 and the brand-new evolution wireless G4 series. The Sennheiser Control Cockpit will be continually complemented with further features and benefits to always ensure optimised workflows. This makes the Sennheiser Control Cockpit a future-proof solution that will become the core management software for users in the education and corporate sector.
