Sennheiser Control Cockpit: Digital workflows
This article explains the term "digital workflows", an important element in efficient AV management with the Sennheiser Control Cockpit
The Sennheiser Control Cockpit is a central software designed for easy handling, control and maintenance of large microphone system installations. It provides a global overview of all network-enabled devices at any given time, displaying all status information at a glance. This real-time monitoring capability allows for rapid response to any potential issues which enhances the reliability of the AV system and enables smooth digital workflows.
What are the benefits of digital workflows?
In AV management, the term "digital workflows" refers to automated and software-supported processes that enhance efficiency and effectiveness. Digital workflows involve the use of software tools to manage and control AV equipment. These workflows streamline the operation of AV systems by simplifying tasks like setup, configuration, monitoring and maintenance. By digitizing these processes, errors are minimized, and operations become more efficient and reliable. The Sennheiser Control Cockpit software is designed to provide seamless and efficient digital workflows. The software allows for the automation and streamlining of various AV management tasks that would otherwise require manual intervention.
The difference between analog and digital workflows can be illustrated by the example of a classical everyday task in campus-wide installations: the battery check. As part of an analog workflow (“management by walking”), staff needs to go to a location to look for a microphone to check its battery status. The Sennheiser Control Cockpit allows for a digital workflow through the combination of automatic notifications, display of status and the delegation to a responsible colleague who is near the microphone that needs to be charged. This makes costly, time-consuming and nerve-racking management by walking obsolete. In essence, digital workflows lead to improved performance and ease of use in AV management.
