Xilica and Sennheiser launch hybrid conferencing kits

Xilica and Sennheiser have strengthened their partnership with the launch of two new pre-validated, plug-and-play room kits for medium and large collaboration spaces. The room kits, designed with IT standards in mind, bring PoE-powered Xilica and Sennheiser audio-conferencing solutions together in one compact in-ceiling system, with all components connected over CatX network cable. This is said to speed deployment for enterprise and education customers modernising their meeting and learning spaces, as no copper cable or proprietary audio connections are required.

The Xilica x Sennheiser Room Kits are purpose-built to solve the specific challenges of medium and large collaboration spaces. Both bundles include a Xilica PoE-powered DSP and a Sennheiser beamforming microphone array (TeamConnect Ceiling 2) to reduce noise and eliminate echo in challenging acoustical environments. The kits also add Xilica’s new CatX-connected in-ceiling speaker systems to optimise in-room audio and streamline architecture.

The Medium Room Kit includes a Xilica Solaro QR1-UC DSP, Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone, one PoE+-enabled Xilica Sonia Amp and two Sonia C5 in-ceiling speakers. The Large Room Kit includes all of the same technologies but with four Sonia C5 in-ceiling speakers and a Xilica XTouch 80 touchscreen for simple in-room control.

The kits are easily installed, with no mains power requirement, full in-ceiling installation and distributed ceiling speakers that address the requirements of collaboration room audio across a larger space without termination or proprietary wiring. The pre-validated solution reduces the costs of building an audio-conferencing solution from individual components, while also providing installers with a practical system that is quick to deploy.

Xilica HearClear acoustic echo cancellation and Sennheiser’s TruVoicelift functionality work together to further lift voice intelligibility, reduce audio artefacts and eliminate room and acoustic distractions that limit clear communication. Xilica Solaro QR1-UC DSPs include a 2x2 USB audio interface that offers volume and mute status sync for Microsoft Teams, and Zoom, adding value for hybrid applications and allowing remote workers and students to raise, reduce or mute from their computer keyboards.

The Medium Room Kit and Large Room Kit are adaptable to a wide variety of spaces, including auditoriums, board rooms, conference rooms, lecture halls and training spaces, as well as standard classrooms. Larger enterprises and universities have the added benefit of configuring kits with Solaro QR1’s advanced DSP functionality prior to deployment. This allows customers to easily standardise kit components to serve the specific needs of each space.
