ISE 2017: Sennheiser Releases New Version of Control Cockpit

The update provides global view of hundreds of SpeechLine devices

Audio specialist Sennheiser announced a new version of its Control Cockpit software suite, which offers an intuitive, easy way to set up and manage the operation of SpeechLine Digital Wireless products.


Accessible via web browser, Control Cockpit software enables handling, control, and maintenance of the SpeechLine Digital Wireless microphone system.

The software, which is accessible in web browsers on any smartphone and tablet or notebook, has been comprehensively updated. It offers a global view of even hundreds of SpeechLine devices with a powerful new system of proactive notifications that makes it even easier to stay in control, anticipate issues, and take preventive action as needed. The latest version, 1.1.0, now includes wider language support with English, French, Spanish, and German localization.

The Sennheiser Control Cockpit is the central software for easy handling, control, and maintenance of the entire SpeechLine Digital Wireless system, the first digital wireless microphone solution to be designed exclusively for speech applications. Simple, efficient, and easy-to-use, Control Cockpit offers network-based monitoring and remote control that can be accessed on any platform via a web browser. It provides a continuous, global dashboard overview of all network-enabled SpeechLine digital wireless devices, shows status information at a glance, and facilitates setting adjustments for one or multiple devices (bulk editing) at the same time.

The latest version offers an all-new system of notifications — for example, battery alerts — that makes it even easier to manage SpeechLine Digital Wireless devices. It also now supports the CHG 4N Network Charger, providing 360° monitoring of the status of microphones, even while they are not in use. Naturally, the latest version also offers support for the growing SpeechLine Digital Wireless family, including the SL Tablestand 133-S DW and SL Tablestand 153-S DW, recently launched transmitter types dedicated to podium discussions, speeches, and lectures, as well as to ad hoc press conferences; in addition, support will be provided for the forthcoming SL Boundary 114-S DW wireless boundary-layer microphone for remote conferencing and boardrooms.

Sennheiser has taken the ease of use of Control Cockpit even further, with such features as an event log, for easy tracking of past notifications and alerts, and a built-in update wizard. This provides automatic notifications when a new firmware or a Sennheiser Control Cockpit release is available online and carries out updates with simplicity and without the need for admin rights for installation. For power users, a new Custom column in the device overview makes it possible to tailor the device overview to display particular information, such as battery status, firmware revision, RF-sync state, or IP addresses.
