Xilica partnered with global audio specialist Sennheiser to develop an integrated room solution. The collaboration’s goal is to minimize installation time, improve audio quality, and enhance collaboration for end-users. The partnership will leverage audio products from both companies.
“We’re pleased to partner with Sennheiser to help unlock the power of human connection,” said James Knight, COO, Xilica. “Our joint solution offers a pre-validated room system for the high-value collaboration space that delivers greater freedom and flexibility to end-users while eliminating lengthy setup for integrators. Pairing Sennheiser’s patented technologies with the audio-enhancing algorithms of Xilica processors give a distraction-free experience in which people can come together.”
The complete solution pairs the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 beamforming microphone array with Xilica’s ecosystem DSP, user interfaces, and network endpoints. The whole solution ensures speech intelligibility for physical and remote participants in hybrid spaces. End-users will have the flexibility to move throughout their space and present in their own style, eliminating the risk of inaudibility.
“Modern meetings have more remote participants than ever, and they need to hear clearly without being distracted by background noise and interruptions,” said Charlie Jones, Global Alliance and Partnerships Manager for Sennheiser.
Part of the partnership allows Sennheiser to enable support of their TrueVoicelift functionality across Xilica’s Solaro Series of DSPs. This will simplify the installation of multiple Sennheiser TCC2 microphones through automatic testing and calibration of audio. TrueVoicelift provides noise reduction, speaker amplification and creates targeted zones in busy areas to highlight participants speaking. The complete solution offers end-to-end mute status sync for Microsoft Teams enabling a software-based mute action.
“TruVoicelift is perfect for large conference spaces and lecture halls that allow everyone to hear a presenter or a question from a student that is raised. Together with Xilica DSPs, end users are assured high-quality, dependable audio with exceptional room and user control,” said Charlie Jones
