Silesian University in Opava – School of Business Administration in Karviná

Full flexibility with 100% individuality: TeamConnect Ceiling 2 in a meeting room with special requirements at the School of Business Administration in Karviná

The client

The School of Business Administration in Karviná is a faculty of the Silesian University in Opava. The Silesian University is one of the youngest universities in the Czech Republic. It was founded in 1991.


The challenge

As the conference room at the School of Business Administration (SBA) in Karviná it was about is not of the usual standard dimensions, the most important requirement for the new microphone was that it should be flexible. Another requirement was that the new mic solution needed to be easily implemented into the existing video conferencing ecosystem and be adaptable to different room setups.


The solution

TeamConnect Ceiling 2 was chosen for the conference room because of its tremendous flexibility, the superb audio characteristics and simple implementation in the video conferencing chain.

“The important factor for us was the flexibility of TeamConnect Ceiling 2 as our conference room is not of the standard shape, and additionally we can easily change the seating order.”

Jakub Ježíšek, technical specialist and IT manager at SBA

As the School of Business Administration (SBA) is an educational institution, the time to finish the installation was limited. Because of the quick and easy setup of TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2), this was no problem.

“We relied on AVT Group as our experienced installation partner who recommended TeamConnect Ceiling 2 to be installed in our specific room”, says Jakub Ježíšek, technical specialist and IT manager at SBA. The installation of the Microsoft Teams-certified ceiling mic was performed by AVT Group quickly, successfully and as requested by the customer.

TCC2 fits the conditions of the conference room perfectly as its patented automatic dynamic beamforming technology allows the microphone to adapt to different room setups without any without reconfiguration. TCC2 scores not only with its fast and easy setup, but also with its flexible integration options. At SBA, the xSL CM SK ceiling mic suspension kit was used for the suspended installation of TCC2. The set consists of 4 steel cables with 16.4ft (5m) length that can be adjusted to an individual installation height.

As the business school needed components for the setup that don’t work just solitary, but that allow to create a seamlessly working audio and video system, it profited from Sennheiser’s manufacturer-agnostic approach by choosing TCC2. As part of its Global Alliances initiative, Sennheiser cultivates cooperation with premium partners like Bose. At SBA, the benefits of the manufacturer-agnostic approach became evident when initial feedback echo issues in the conference room were solved successfully by experimenting with different setups using both the Sennheiser Control Cockpit and the Bose ControlSpace EX-440C conferencing signal processor.
