CEDAT85 and Sennheiser team up to deliver clear and secure speech transcription in real-time


No internet connection required for this combined audio solution that was showcased at ISE 2022

CEDAT85 and Sennheiser, the first choice for advanced audio technology that makes collaboration and learning easier, are pleased to announce a bundled audio solution that combines CEDAT85’s innovative stand-alone transcription solution, CABOLO®, with Sennheiser’s Speechline Digital Wireless (SLDW) microphone system. Together, these industry-leading products enhance the inclusiveness of meetings by providing superior speech intelligibility with real-time language transcription and translation, ensuring all participants can speak and be heard in their language of choice.

This is the first step for both companies as they enter into a partnership to present a joint offering of AI enriched solutions in the world-wide arena. ​ Both Sennheiser and CEDAT85 exhibited at ISE 2022 in Barcelona from the 10th to 13th of May and showcased how the SLDW system and CABOLO® can be applied in real-world scenarios to eliminate language barriers.

CABOLO® is an innovative solution that, without any internet connection requirement, can automatically record, transcribe, and translate in real-time meeting and interview content with the utmost confidentiality, keeping the conversations encrypted (the files produced are encrypted with AES 256 encryption algorithm) and stored securely.

Also featuring AES 256 encryption, Sennheiser’s SLDW combines the advantages of a wireless microphone with automatic frequency selection to create the perfect digital wireless microphone system for speech and lecture. ​ The SLDW’s versatility and ability to adapt to the requirements of individual applications makes it an ideal choice for industry partners seeking an innovative audio solution to complement their technology.
