Las Vegas, NV (June 13, 2016)—At InfoComm, Sennheiser showed its new TeamConnect system, an audio conferencing solution for medium to large conference rooms.
The system is based around the Central Unit CU1, which offers both Ethernet and WiFi connectivity options, a choice of fixed or table-top SpeechLine microphones or the new TeamConnect Ceiling microphone, and active loudspeakers.
“Bring-your-own-device” conferences can be set up with a smartphone, notebook or tablet. An iOS app offers touchscreen control of web and audio conferences on iPad and iPhone, while a browser-based web app provides a similar interface on other devices. Connections to ongoing conferences can be established by plug-and-play.
In addition to excellent connectivity options, TeamConnect offers support for a range of Unified Communications platforms, including Skype for business, OpenSpace, GoToMeeting, IBM, Cisco, and Avaya.
The system typically comprises up to eight Sennheiser SpeechLine microphones (either table-top or fixed installed) and its SL loudspeakers.
Also available is the new TeamConnect Ceiling, a fixed-installation, ceiling-mounted microphone that offers an option for installations where table mounted mics may not be practical or desired. The discrete TeamConnect Ceiling uses beamforming technology that automatically focuses on whichever person in the room is speaking, wherever they are sitting or standing within a 60m2 range.
Offering three optional installation variants, the Team Connect Unified Communication solution can be integrated into an existing room infrastructure. Different bundle configurations, individually adjusted to spatial conditions and different sized working groups are available.
