Last year, the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) began a full-scale upgrade of the wireless microphone systems used in 342 classrooms, meeting rooms and studio rooms throughout campus. UQAM hired Sennheiser to help implement this upgrade utilizing SpeechLine Digital Wireless devices, designed to allow facility technicians to monitor a variety of individual wireless devices simultaneously from a remote, central location using the Sennheiser Control Cockpit software.
“We chose Sennheiser not only for the quality of service we knew they would provide us,” says UQAM operational director Dominic Besner, “but also for the solidity and build-quality of Sennheiser’s product lines, the relative value added across a variety of products at different price points — and, of course, for enabling connectivity of all the newly installed SpeechLine Digital Wireless systems throughout campus using Sennheiser’s Control Cockpit software.”
SpeechLine Digital Wireless system is designed exclusively for speech applications, ranging from a presentation using two microphone links to a meeting room with multiple microphones to a campus-wide installation like UQAM with hundreds of links. It offers system automatics and preconfigured sound profiles tailored to a variety of education applications, including hands-free presentations, and letting speakers choose between a wireless table stand, handheld or bodypack transmitter for use with the lavalier or headset mic, depending on their preference.
Now, with the campus-wide connectivity enabled by the newly installed systems, all buildings on the UQAM campus can now be centrally monitored from a remote location with the Sennheiser Control Cockpit software. Accessible on any platform through a web browser, it facilitates handling, control and maintenance of the entire SpeechLine Digital Wireless system, offering a continuous, global dashboard overview of all network-enabled SpeechLine devices, showing status information.
