Touchless Audio Systems: Voice Lift and Assistive Listening

Sennheiser’s Andrew Kornstein will take a look at the advances in microphone and assistive listening technology. To reliably pick up voices in an installed sound context, you will not always need multiple microphones, and pick-up can be done without having to touch a microphone or wear a microphone transmitter. The same is true for assistive listening, where new technologies allow personal mobile devices to be used, giving the user a more personal and sanitary experience. Andrew will discuss the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone with patented beamforming technology, and the new MobileConnect assistive listening system which transmits over WiFi – two new technologies that change the way we work and listen.

Please register at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_dj7NDfPGTXOan3vb7oJQJg for the 16:00 to 17:00 session and at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_8U_KewAaTECpHnNdjrXwmA for the 20:00 to 21:00 session.
