Sennheiser Digital 6000 dazzles at The Londoner
Referred to as ‘the world’s first super boutique hotel’ by owner Edwardian Hotels, The Londoner emerged as a new edifice in the heart of London’s West End. Visual Systems, part of Myriad Audiovisual Sales Ltd, was employed by the hotel group to design and deliver top-of-the-range audio solutions, which includes Sennheiser Digital 6000 wireless microphone systems, SpeechLine Digital Wireless, the world’s first speech-dedicated system, a Sennheiser infrared system on 2.3MHz and 2.8MHz and the audio manufacturer’s flagship MobileConnect system for assistive listening.
The Visual Systems team deployed 14 channels of Digital 6000 in The Ballroom. A beautiful, 566sqm event space, it has been equipped to host events of any calibre, turning theatre premiers and corporate gatherings into truly memorable experiences.
As well as Digital 6000, the Visual Systems team also installed Sennheiser’s SpeechLine Digital Wireless system in the hotel’s two largest meeting room spaces. Designed for speech applications, SLDW features Dante support for IP networks as well as stress-free management via the Sennheiser Control Cockpit software, with the latter also offering full control of the Digital 6000 wireless microphone series.
Another technology that proved its worth instantly, and even more so due to the COVID health and safety regulations, is Sennheiser’s assistive and personal listening solution, MobileConnect. “Because of COVID, we thought MobileConnect would be perfectly suited. By deploying MobileConnect Stations, event audio is available throughout B2 ballroom, B2 pre-function spaces and anywhere within the hotel if connected to the hotel WiFi, even in B3 meeting rooms for ballroom event overflow.
This allowed the team to bring a cost-efficient and hygienic solution to The Londoner, meaning the hotel does not need to issue dedicated assistive listening devices, with each visitor using their own personal device. Additionally, the MobileConnect Manager software can be used as the single point of administration for all MobileConnect Stations, meaning a more centralised approach for the hotel technical team.
