Xilica and Sennheiser launch hybrid conferencing kits

Xilica and Sennheiser have strengthened their partnership through the launch of two new pre-validated, plug-and-play room kits for medium and large collaboration spaces.

The room kits, designed with IT standards in mind, bring PoE-powered Xilica and Sennheiser audio conferencing solutions together in one in-ceiling system, with all components connected over CatX network cable.

The Medium Room Kit includes a Xilica Solaro QR1-UC DSP, Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone, one PoE+-enabled Xilica Sonia Amp and two Sonia C5 in-ceiling speakers. The Large Room Kit includes all of the same technologies but with four Sonia C5 in-ceiling speakers and a Xilica XTouch 80 touchscreen for simple in-room control.

Shaun Robinson, VP product management, Xilica, said: “Extending our partnership with Sennheiser into room bundles is an ideal way to speed up design and deployment of cutting-edge collaboration spaces. The Xilica x Sennheiser Room Kits are true ceiling-installed systems that require no in-room equipment racks or mains power and work over existing network infrastructure. Their scalable, consistent design enables easy deployment in hundreds of rooms across a campus with the same level of quality but without time-consuming programming and installation.”

Ira M. Weinstein, managing partner at analyst firm Recon Research, said: “These Xilica and Sennheiser bundles make it quick and easy to audio-enable meeting rooms in one building or throughout an entire enterprise. And the inclusion of Xilica’s Teams- and Zoom-friendly DSP means these kits have the processing power and intelligence to handle some of the more acoustically challenging spaces.”

Charlie Jones, global alliance and partnerships manager for Sennheiser, said: “Sennheiser has worked closely with Xilica to bundle these pre-validated products for today’s enterprise and education needs. No matter the size or shape of room, combining the flexibility of these two product ranges with commonly-available Category cable, easy setup, and assured compatibility allows everyone’s voice to be heard in record time – from the front of the conference room to the back of the lecture theatre.”

The Xilica x Sennheiser Room Kits are available now from select distribution points worldwide.
