Sennheiser’s MobileConnect provides live audio streaming to mobile devices using a wi-fi connection to stream lip-sync audio content to a smartphone app that converts it into a mobile receiver. Envisaged applications include theatre, museum, sports stadia and corporate events.

The selected audio data are transferred to the device via the MobileConnect multichannel app, enabling users to listen to content via headphones. MobileConnect can be installed in a few easy steps and is ready for use immediately.

‘This solution will enable our customers to use their own smartphones to receive audio content in the future,’ says Andy Niemann, Director Integrated Systems Division at Sennheiser. ‘They obviously know how to use their own device best of all and merely have to download the free MobileConnect app to their smartphone. At the same time, event organisers are no longer faced with the cost of providing, renting and maintaining the audio devices.

‘Additional features – such as assistive listening in theatres, the provision of an audio track for silent screens in airport waiting lounges or simultaneous interpreting for public performances – mean that MobileConnect enables our customers to upgrade and expand their range of possibilities.’

MobileConnect streaming can also be used in situations in which audio transmission has previously been impossible or very limited: ‘It opens up completely new opportunities in the field of digital signage as well as in many areas of assistive listening,’ Niemann says. ‘System houses and integrators can therefore not only offer existing customers an innovative solution for familiar application scenarios, but they can also acquire completely new customers.’

The MobileConnect system will be available shortly. The free MobileConnect app is available for iOS with Android to follow, and can be downloaded from the respective app stores.
