OUR PART # MOBILECONNECT
Sennhesierâ€™s MobileConnect app provides innovative live audio streaming to mobile devices for the first time. The universal system uses a wi-fi connection to stream lip-sync audio content to the userâ€™s smartphone, which has an app that instantly converts it into a mobile receiver. MobileConnect can be quickly and easily installed almost anywhere - theatres, museums, stadiums, or companies - and is also cost-efficient in use.
MobileConnect consists of a streaming server and a specific wireless LAN router. The system provides a closed network that users can connect to from their smartphone. The selected audio data are transferred to the device via the MobileConnect multi-channel app, thus enabling users to play the content conveniently through headphones. The user-friendliness of the system is not limited to the front end: MobileConnect can be installed in a few easy steps and is ready for use immediately.
The app opens up new opportunities in the field of digital signage as well as in many areas of assistive listening. System houses and integrators can therefore not only offer their existing customers an innovative solution for familiar application scenarios, but they can also acquire completely new customers.
Minimum Effort and Cost
As an innovative streaming-based technology, MobileConnect enables customers to use their own smartphones to receive audio contents in the future. They know how to use their own device best, and they merely have to download the free MobileConnect app to their smartphone. Event organizers are no longer faced with the cost of providing, renting and maintaining the audio devices, though cost-efficiency not the only feature that makes MobileConnect interesting.
Successful Test Phase
Sennheiser's MobileConnect is already being successfully used in pilot projects, for example in some theatres in Hamburg and at the Millerntor Stadium of Hamburg's FC St. Pauli soccer team.
Sennheiser has already launched the CinemaConnect app, which works on the same technological basis as MobileConnect but is designed for use in cinemas. CinemaConnect provides audio description and assistive listening in cinemas, thus offering inclusive solutions for cinemagoers who have a visual or hearing impairment. The CinemaConnect solution has been in use in the Abaton cinema in Hamburg since May 2014 and is already available.
The MobileConnect system is available shortly. The free MobileConnect app is available for iOS and, in future, for Android and can be downloaded from the respective app stores.
