Sennheiser Innovation: Cinema is for Everyone!

Cinema

In order to develop innovative new products, Sennheiser has been conducting audiological research for more than 40 years. The audio specialists, based in Wedemark, Germany, introduce their latest products every year at Prolight + Sound. One product that is guaranteed to be making an appearance in Messe Frankfurt in 2015 is Sennheiser’s very latest piece of cutting-edge technology: CinemaConnect. Audio experts Sennheiser see this novel live-streaming system as an opportunity to make culture accessible to everyone. Exactly how it will work was demonstrated just recently in Hamburg’s Abaton cinema.
The way CinemaConnect works is simplicity itself: cinemagoers connect to a specially set up WiFi network via a free smartphone app. Live-streaming gives them real-time access to additional soundtracks for visual descriptions or assistive listening, making it possible to experience the film via headphones.

Sennheiser develops media for hearing and sight impaired

In Germany every fifth person is hearing or sight impaired. However at concerts, cinemas or theaters there haven't been any adjustments to help them. More than 50 percent of the affected people don't go to cultural events. This was the result of a TNS Emnid survey commissioned by the audio specialist Sennheiser. Therefore, the Wedemaker company is working on new streaming technology for cinemas and theaters which utilizes the inclusion principle, so that seeing and hearing impaired people are no longer excluded.
