Sennheiser unveils first AVB microphone

Sennheiser has chosen the InfoComm show to unveil its first microphone that employs groundbreaking Audio Video Bridging (AVB) technology. The audio specialist is one of the first companies to use this technology in a product, proving that the AVB networking standard is no longer a distant dream.

As a technology leader, Sennheiser has always had a decisive influence on designing the audio world. With the development of the first AVB microphone, the family-owned company is showcasing the application of the new networking standard at this year's InfoComm in Las Vegas. "We are convinced that AVB will play a major role in the future," said Sennheiser product manager Kai Tossing. "That's why we are especially pleased to be able to present the first Sennheiser microphone with AVB technology at this year's show."

New technology meets proven audio quality
Sennheiser's AVB microphone was developed as part of a study. At the moment, it is still a prototype and will not be available in this form as a product in the market. Nevetheless, as the successful outcome of a product study, it proves that Sennheiser's renowned audio quality can be transmitted into a digital Ethernet network without problems. The microphone also demonstrates that AVB technology already functions as a network technology for tomorrow.

Visitors can experience the Sennheiser AVB microphone in action on the stage in the AVnu Pavillon. More examples can be found at the Sennheiser booth.

Advancing the AV industry with AVB
Sennheiser is a member of the AVnu Alliance, an industry forum dedicated to the advancement of professional-quality audio video. Its key objective is to establish Audio Video Bridging (AVB) as a standard technology for A/V applications such as microphones, loudspeakers, laptops, beamers and many other devices.

Visit Sennheiser at the InfoComm show in the Audio Pavilion, Booth C9736, or in the AVnu Pavilion.
