Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 elevates conferencing experience at German Centre Beijing

BEIJING, CHINA – Media OutReach – 15 December 2021 – The German Centre Beijing provides modern
office spaces, offers conference and meeting facilities, and supports companies
with practical advice and services. Located at the heart of Beijing’s business
and diplomatic district, the German Centre takes care of the complete workspace
infrastructure, so that tenants can entirely focus on their business. Since
1999, more than 500 companies have used the German Centre Beijing to start and
grow their business in China. Currently, its 17,000 sqm space is home to more
than 70 companies.

Jochen Tenhagen, Managing Director of
German Centre Beijing, shared his experience using Sennheiser TeamConnect
Ceiling 2 microphones

The German Centre offers different types of meeting
rooms and facilities for both offline and online meetings and activities – in
perfect sync with the needs of their tenants. Recently, the German Centre
Beijing has installed two Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2) units in its
‘Stuttgart’ meeting room to improve the hybrid meeting and conferencing

“With the COVID-19 pandemic, many meetings have moved
online. We saw a huge increase in the demand for better meeting room audio and
conferencing solutions to support this ‘new normal’,” said Jochen Tenhagen, Managing Director of the German Center

The 72m2 Stuttgart meeting room seats up to
50 people and is used for a variety of functions and business meetings. The
room can be expanded into a larger conference area for up to 100 participants
with different seating configurations.

A flexible and powerful audio and conferencing

TCC2 proved to be the perfect audio and conferencing
solution for this space thanks to its adaptive beamforming technology and
TruVoicelift functionality, which significantly increases speech
intelligibility in a meeting or conference room, allowing participants to be
heard clearly from every corner of the room.

“TCC2 has enabled a truly contactless and wireless
experience for our tenants, which has greatly reduced hygiene risks. The
dynamic beamforming technology automatically follows the active speaker’s
voice, allowing them freedom of movement in the room. Most importantly for us,
this meant that the configuration of the room is flexible, and changing it will
not impair the audio quality,” explained Jochen Tenhagen. With TCC2, it is also
possible to define advanced exclusion zones within the meeting room to
eliminate unwanted noise sources, and a priority zone for uninterrupted speech

Users of the Stuttgart meeting room can now
participate in meetings in a stress-free environment and can be confident that
they would not miss any key information due to poor sound quality. Participants
and guest speakers who join an event remotely will enjoy the same great sound
quality: TCC2 will reliably pick up all speakers within a room and make the
remote experience more life-like and engaging.

The TCC2 is embedded in the meeting room ceiling and
the installation was easy and straightforward. The integration of TCC2 with
other solutions such as the Q-SYS Core 110f processor from QSC and Clickshare
CX-30 conferencing solution from Barco was seamless, and together, they form an
integrated smart system that can be controlled using the Crestron control

Stuttgart Meeting Room – the most popular meeting room
in German Centre Beijing

With the upgrade of the Stuttgart meeting room, TCC2
has not only made remote conferencing more convenient, but also elevated the
in-room audio capabilities for live events and meetings. In fact, the Stuttgart
meeting room has now become the most popular meeting room at the German Centre

“I’m really happy with Sennheiser’s TCC2. We can now
hear each other clearly from every part of the room, without the need to handle
handheld microphones. The conferencing experience for participants who attend meetings
and events virtually has also improved greatly with TCC2. Regardless of whether
two or twenty participants attend, the sound quality of our virtual meetings is
comparable to face-to-face meetings. I am very satisfied with this partnership
with Sennheiser,” added Jochen Tenhagen.

The German Centre Beijing is confident that its
tenants will continue to benefit from TCC2. TCC2 is compatible with leading
video collaboration platforms such as Zoom and Tencent Meeting and is certified
for Microsoft Teams when deployed with Microsoft-certified DSPs.
