Get the most from Sennheiser’s Control Cockpit

proudly presented by Sennheiser

Sennheiser’s Control Cockpit management platform provides a way for facilities to easily control and monitor SpeechLine Digital Wireless devices across their entire installed environments, on any device. But how can you get the most from this powerful platform? Here is a guide on how to best approach each of the three main views.



Cockpit View – The Cockpit view does just that; a system view from 30,000 feet. Use the donuts to get a global overview of what is happening on your site. The first donut provides a device overview, the second a look at battery status of systems, and the third gives an overview of charging systems. You can jump straight to the offending devices directly from here


Device View – This is where the truth is revealed. See all the details from any system component. You can see their transmit status or battery level at a glance. Form here you can step deeper into a specific device’s settings and take complete control.


Location View – When running a facility, you can’t always think at device level. This is where Location View can help. It will provide a list of the room locations associated to each device. Simply click through to the room to get a device list view of all systems located in that space. Simple.


Bonus Monitoring – View The Location View also contains an additional view that is perfect for when you are in a live situation. You are presented with a device overview containing only the key features you need for operation. See signal metering and RF strength, battery status, even deactivate the mute switch for a nervous presenter.


Making it Mobile – And remember, all this functionality is available to you on any device that supports a browser, allowing you to take control whilst on the move and fix issues before your users perceive a problem. Leaving you time to enjoy that coffee.
