New York, NY (February 26, 2020)—Bose Professional has unveiled the Bose ES1 Ceiling Audio Solution, an in-ceiling conferencing solution. Aiming to avoid having audio devices visible on walls or tabletops, the approach uses a variety of offerings from Bose and Sennheiser to create a solution that is currently undergoing the certification process for use with the unified communication platform, Microsoft Teams.
The approach uses three Bose products—the ControlSpace EX-440C conferencing signal processor, the EdgeMax EM180 in-ceiling loudspeaker, the PowerSpace P2600A amplifier—and the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2) microphone.
“We’re thrilled to bring together three amazing brands — Bose, Sennheiser and Microsoft — to deliver a Microsoft Teams Rooms audio solution that’s transparent within the space,” said Martin Bodley, director of emerging business at Bose Professional. “Our EdgeMax in-ceiling speaker is truly unique, utilizing the Bose PhaseGuide technology to deliver pure and natural audio uniformly across a room. And, when combined with the Sennheiser TCC2 ceiling microphone, the Bose ControlSpace EX Dante-enabled DSP and PowerSpace P2600A amplifier, the results are a world-class solution that is easy to install and support.”
“We are proud to deliver a conferencing solution together with Bose Professional that has been designed to provide a perfect conferencing experience, no matter whether you are on site or attending remotely,” said Charlie Jones, global business development manager for Sennheiser’s Business Communication segment.
Ilya Bukshteyn, partner director, Microsoft Teams Devices, Microsoft Corporation said, “With devices Certified for Microsoft Teams, our goal is to provide our customers with solutions that deliver the best possible experience for Teams meetings and calls. We are pleased to now be working with Bose on a high-performing ceiling audio solution for Microsoft Teams Rooms. With the addition of this new solution to our full catalog of Certified systems for Teams, we continue to deliver on our goal of great Teams devices for every space from the phone room to the boardroom, and everywhere in between.”
