Sennheiser MobileConnect streams audio content via WiFi live and in superior quality to any mobile device of students and audiences. It allows the freedom of choosing seats since the speaker's audio can simply be accessed via the MobileConnect App on the user's personal smartphone. This eliminates all uncertainties and ensures compatibility with all personal hearing aids.

Power over Ethernet minimizes the installation effort and makes the device predestined for use in a server rack. It features two XLR inputs and outputs, as well as Dante™ inputs.

The MobileConnect Manager
The MobileConnect Manager is the backend of the system. It is installed on an on-Premise server hardware. It offers a single point of administration for all MobileConnect Stations. All stations in the network will discover the manager and register automatically. The settings include channel configurations, audio inputs as well as the generation of QR codes.
The basic concept of MobileConnect is the usage of the existing campus-wide network infrastructure and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) concept. The audio is transmitted via the existing WiFi and available to users in the MobileConnect App.
How it works
With MobileConnect, the innovative assistive listening system, lectures are transmitted over WiFi in real-time and in high quality to mobile devices. To access a live stream, students simply download and install the free MobileConnect App (available for iOS and Android) and connect to their university's WiFi.
The Mobile Connect app allows easy access to audio streams. Users simply choose the corresponding stream from the list or scan a QR code displayed in the room.

Personal Hearing Assistant
The Personal Hearing Assistant allows users to adjust the audio signal according to individual hearing needs and enhances speech intelligibility and sound quality. The intuitive touchscreen control offers easily accessible assistive listening for the hearing impaired.
Bring Your Own Device
With the BYOD approach, users receive the audio on their personal device. The usage of a familiar device guarantees highest compatibility and convenience. No dedicated seating area or additional hardware is necessary.
The big advantage of MobileConnect is the combination of hardware and software. The MobileConnect Manager allows central control and administration of a large number of MobileConnect Stations in the network.
The administration access can be separated from the public network used for the stream.
The real-time audio streaming server enables extreme low-latency trans- mission of audio content to mobile devices. Low latency is indispensable for assistive listening.
