Wedemark, Germany (December 30, 2014)—A total of 19 wireless professionals from the worldwide Sennheiser organization were recently awarded the RF Expert certificate, with the last of three on-site training sessions taking place in Delhi.
“The system of extensive online training and close supervision by mentors combined with several weeks of on-site training has proven itself,” said Kirsten Wessendorf, Manager Sennheiser Sound Academy, summarizing the training course.
Since obtaining their certificates, the new RF experts have been in action all over the world to provide support for Sennheiser customers and partners in their projects.
Ryan Burr from Sennheiser Middle East provided support for his client Doummar—Q2 Advanced Technology in planning the conference and entertainment facilities for the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre in Doha (Qatar). This included carrying out a thorough analysis of the wireless conditions at the location, planning the conference/interpreting systems and the wireless microphone channels, coordinating all wireless frequencies and programming and testing the systems on site.
“This project is simply gigantic,” Burr commented. “Five conference rooms are equipped with ADN-W wireless conference systems with a total of 380 delegate units, while a further six have SR 2020/HDE 2020 interpreting systems with a total of 4,000 receivers. 150 channels of wireless microphones, mostly 5000/3000 systems, are used in the event venues. One room alone has 72 channels!”
Vincent Tilgenkamp from Sennheiser Benelux achieved top results in all tasks and was presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award. Along with his RF certification. He can also look back on a number of successful projects, including the hit TV show “Utopia”, devised by John de Mol and produced by Talpa, in which he supported the multimedia company Dutchview by providing a special wireless solution. Dutchview was faced with the daunting challenge of picking up the wireless microphone signals from the reality show participants over an area of 12,500 square metres. Tilgenkamp and his team succeeded in covering this vast area with a single rack of receivers and a number of antenna distribution combiners that were custom-built for Utopia.
