Sennheiser launches assistive listening over Wi-Fi e-book


With World Hearing Day being celebrated on March 3, Sennheiser has created a new education e-book to aid the university experience with assistive listening over Wi-Fi. As the digital transformation of post-secondary education rapidly advances, assistive listening systems that use Wi-Fi are growing ever more relevant. While not yet mainstream, the technology offers a number of advantages compared to traditional solutions in the field. In the new e-book, Sennheiser explores the advantages that Wi-Fi based systems can offer to students, faculty and staff.

“Like so many others, we wish for a world where all people can be connected to each other and be able to make the most of the opportunities that lie before them,” commented Jakub Kolacz, Sennheiser’s manager product and commercialisation for MobileConnect. “This includes unrestricted access to information and teaching. With MobileConnect, we offer a fully inclusive, Wi-Fi-based assistive listening solution for the campus infrastructure of modern universities. With individually adjustable, lip-sync audio for as many as 100 students per room, it provides a productive, inclusive learning environment for higher education institutions.”

Worldwide, tens of thousands of students with a hearing impairment attend university, often with legislation that mandates that technical equipment is provided to ensure their full inclusion. With easy access to Wi-Fi having become students’ most important tech resource for studying, the move towards Wi-Fi based assistive listening systems such as MobileConnect from Sennheiser is a logical next step.

According to the German manufacturer, Wi-Fi based assistive listening systems offer substantial advantages over traditional systems, notably in installation. In contrast, assistive listening over Wi-Fi works simply: the lecturer speaks into a microphone, the audio signal travels to an AV station and is broadcast via the existing local Wi-Fi network. Students can use their own smartphone with confidence to listen via an app, freeing them to sit anywhere they like. Using their own smartphones with an app, students listen to the audio via headphones, hearing aids or cochlear implants. Besides low cost of installation and maintenance, Wi-Fi based systems are also easily scalable and can integrate readily with existing AV equipment.
