Sennheiser has unveiled its new intelligent speaker certified for Microsoft Teams, the TeamConnect Intelligent Speaker. The new unified communication solution is designed for mid-sized Microsoft Teams Rooms. Sennheiser is delivering a solution to support smart, focused, and inclusive meetings for up to 10 people, whether participants join remotely or are in the room.
“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.”
The intelligent speaker features an omnidirectional speaker and seven integrated beamforming microphones to achieve impeccable sound quality. Through this Intelligent speaker, Microsoft Teams provides an automatic meeting transcript in real-time, identifying the individual people speaking by name, in case they have enrolled their voices.
Intelligent solutions, such as the integrated Cortana voice recognition software and automatic meeting notes, make an inclusive meeting experience possible for remote and hard-of-hearing participants. Microsoft Teams Rooms combines the virtual workspace of Microsoft Teams with real-world meeting rooms that feature AV equipment from Microsoft-certified hardware partners.
“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.”
