Wienand Mensendiek, Sennheiser head of global business development & commercialization, adds, “At Sennheiser, we always strive to give our customers a unique and, above all, easy-to-use product experience,” says “Working with an innovative company like Extron and combining TeamConnect Ceiling 2, a ceiling microphone that is unique in the market, with Extron’s DSPs makes exactly that possible.”
The adaptive beamforming technology in the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 conferencing microphone is designed to automatically focus on the voices of speakers (talkers), allowing them to move about more freely during presentations.

As part of the DMP Plus series audio DSPs, they support remote control of the microphone output level and mute state as well as LED sync with TeamConnect Ceiling 2, and distribute Sennheiser microphone audio to the conferencing system. The control drivers can be accessed via the Global Alliance section of the Sennheiser Business Communications website or directly from Extron.
