Sennheiser Canada - Selected Conference Projects

Sennheiser ADN Conferencing System

The Simcoe County council chambers was a replacement to an existing system that was failing. An ADN system was installed by Cinemastage Inc., a system integrator that installs commercial audio/visual systems.  The ADN system was commissioned designed and commissioned by Rob.

Sennheiser SDC/WICOS Multi-Room Conference System

The Ontario CUPE offices was a built in 2012 as a new installation requiring a wireless audio conferencing system for three boardrooms that could be combined in any combination:  individual rooms, 2-room combinations and a combination of all three areas.  Three WICOS systems with wireless access points along with three Televic 5500 Central Units were used to provide this functionality.  A web server application is used to configure the various combinations and to load the various encryption keys used for securing the wireless system.  See the PDF link below, for the system design.

Sennheiser SDC Conference System

St. Catharines uses an SDC-8200 system for the city council chambers with delegate units that include voting buttons - and PC control of the conference system via software managed by the city clerk.  Below is the synoptic view image of the SDC software system. 

The PDF link below, shows a block diagram of all all systems components and technical wiring overview.  Rob worked with a Sennheiser system integrator partner to create the system design.

Televic 5500 Combo/Modular Panel Conference System with Sennheiser MZH goose-necks - WICOS 

The City of Markham main council chambers features an uncompromising custom build using Televic and Sennheiser components; audio quality was paramount.  A Televic 5500 CU along with combo panels for delegates - and modular panels for podium locations, were employed.  Sennheiser MZH 3062-L and MZH 3042-L goose-neck microphones were used.  The Televic panels were modified to accommodate the goose-neck microphones and ensure that the light-ring functioned as per standard conference system operation.  The system was completely Crestron controlled (Crestron programming provided by the system integrator.)

A secondary conference chamber (Canada Room) required the use of wireless technologies and used a WICOS conference system.

Rob provided various conference system design drawings as part of the tender process and technical support throughout the design and build stages...

Televic 5500 Combo-Panel Conference System

The City of Vaughn conference system was installed in a brand new award-winning architectural building.  A Televic 5500 CU system with 21 delegate units in a redundant loop was employed for this installation.  The system integrator provided comprehensive Crestron control for the conference system as well as voting and media services for the council chambers.

Rob designed the conference system configuration as well as commissioned and configured the system in conjunction with the System Integrator that was awarded this project.

Televic 5500 Modular-Panel Conference System with Electronic Voting

City of London was a 2009 installation by a local Sennheiser system integrator. The conferencing portion was based on a Televic 5500 modular system using a redundant loop topology and with both voting and smart cards. There were three different delegate configurations:

  1. Chairmen Configuration - which included an LCD unit for messaging.
  2. Councillors and Controllers - with 5-position voting panels.
  3. Staff members, clerks and podium station. (mic/speakers)

A database system with smart cards were used for conference and electronic voting systems.  Different database configurations allowed for secure configurations during any meeting/session-type. Crestron control for the conference system and local media services was provided by the integrator. The Televic Synoptic view is shown directly below. See PDF link below for the system block diagram.
