Well, now the company is announcing its entry into the unified communications market with two all-in-one video bars, called TeamConnect Bar Solutions that are designed for small and medium-sized meeting rooms and collaboration spaces.
The smaller TeamConnect Bar S features four microphones and two speakers, while TC Bar M has six microphones and four speakers. Both can be integrated with any meeting platform and can be further enhanced with other compatible products, including those from Sennheiser.
According to Sennheiser, the TC Bar Solutions are easy to setup with multiple mounting options like a wall, VESA, tabletop or freestanding. There is also the option of using Dante for adding extension mics and/or a 2nd external USB camera making the device even more scalable. Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) integrates hardware and software that uses network protocols to deliver uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency digital audio transmission over a standard Ethernet network.
They also come with full-range stereo speakers with improved directivity patterns and optimised passive radiators to ensure natural speech and outstanding intelligibility. Integrated beamforming technology enables a seamless transition between presenters and offers freedom of movement and configuration within the space.
The built-in Digital Signal Processors (DSP), as well as the option to adjust your audio settings via Sennheiser Control Cockpit, give users the opportunity to optimise room acoustics. The TC Bars also come with an automatic conference and music mode switch to provide the best audio to match the content.
Video hasn’t been neglected either with the TC Bar’s 4K Ultra HD camera enhanced by AI features like "Autoframing" and "Person Tiling", enabling all remote participants to clearly see everyone in the room. With advanced AI, even the smallest gestures and facial expressions are conveyed to ensure increased meeting inclusion and engagement.
According to Sennheiser, the TC Bar Solutions will start shipping in September this year but interested parties can start placing orders now. However, as the pricing of Sennheiser’s business communication solutions varies with the scale and volume of the installation, for orders or purchasing enquiries they say to contact Sennheiser directly through the contact form found at the end of the web page, or any of its System Integrator partners.
