Sennheiser introduces TeamConnect Intelligent Speaker for Microsoft Teams

News Desk -


Sennheiser has announced the launch of an intelligent speaker Certified for Microsoft Teams, the TeamConnect Intelligent Speaker. 

The new unified communications solution for mid-sized Microsoft Teams Rooms, which was originally scheduled to debut at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2022, has now been released, the company announced in a press release.

Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Intelligent Speaker, according to the company, provides a solution for smart, focused, and inclusive meetings for up to 10 people, whether participants join online or in-person. It boasts a 3.5m radius omnidirectional speaker and seven inbuilt beamforming microphones for superb sound quality.

Using this Intelligent Speaker, Microsoft Teams generates an automatic meeting transcript that identifies the people speaking by name, in case they have enrolled their voices. This ensures that distant and hard-of-hearing attendees have an inclusive meeting experience.

“Sennheiser is known for our industry-leading TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone with TruVoicelift,” said Anne Guhn, Product Manager at Sennheiser. “This addition to our TeamConnect family offers an opportunity for us to expand into a different sized meeting room, at a price point that some might not expect from Sennheiser.”   

“Video conferencing tools like Microsoft Teams have become the communication backbone for many businesses and education institutions,” Albert Kooiman, Senior Director of Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification, said. “The Sennheiser TeamConnect Intelligent Speaker does not only provide excellent meeting room audio, but also unlocks the best speech technology. Only Intelligent Speakers offer the best speech transcripts.”  

Microsoft Teams Rooms integrates Microsoft Teams’ virtual workspace with physical meeting rooms outfitted with AV equipment from Microsoft-certified hardware partners.
