Sennheiser has rolled out a major update to its Sennheiser Control Cockpit software tool, designed to streamline daily work routines in controlling and monitoring large microphone setups.
Control Cockpit 4.0.0 now offers users the ability to monitor the new SpeechLine Multi-Channel Receiver and the EM 6000 receiver from Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 series, in addition to evolution wireless G3 and G4, SpeechLine, and the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone.
Other new features include “location-based Mute” functionality, enabling all devices in a room to be grouped and their mute switches synchronised, so that all devices can be muted and unmuted together. This can be done centrally via the Sennheiser Control Cockpit or locally on one of the devices. Location-based Mute is available for TeamConnect Ceiling 2 and SpeechLine Digital Wireless, including the new Multi-Channel Receiver.

In addition, the software now utilises SSL encryption to add further security to data transmission between the user interface and the host server.
“The prime benefits of the software are easy battery management and remote troubleshooting,” said Peter Grünert, product manager software, Sennheiser. “Whereas in the old days, IT staff had to walk to every single room and check the microphones on site, they can now take a look at the dashboard and quickly identify where action is really required. The same goes for remote troubleshooting: a look at the dashboard, and you can immediately see if a mute switch has been operated accidentally or the sensitivity changed unintentionally, and remedy this via the software.”
