Sennheiser launches TeamConnect Ceiling, the innovative, discrete solution for conference rooms

sennheiserLogoAmsterdam/Wedemark, February 9, 2016 – At ISE 2016, Sennheiser is launching TeamConnect Ceiling, an innovative new ceiling mounted variant of the audio specialist’s TeamConnect fixed-installation conferencing system. Virtually invisible, TeamConnect Ceiling offers a high performing, discrete alternative for installation in medium to large conference rooms where table mounted systems are not suitable or possible. With innovative beamforming technology that can focus on a speaker’s voice, TeamConnect Ceiling offers a compromise-free solution that delivers superior sound and great speech clarity.

TeamConnect Ceiling provides the perfect solution for meeting spaces where for either aesthetic or practical purposes, cables, holes for installation, or table microphones are not desirable, offering very high quality audio with utterly unobtrusive design. Just one TeamConnect Ceiling can cover up to approximately 16 participants, making it ideal for medium or large conference rooms. The use of a single, dynamic ceiling microphone simplifies installation, configuration and everyday use, while the cable-free, tethered design ensures that the system is protected from wear and tear.

Expanding the flexibility of the Team

Connect family TeamConnect Ceiling is an expansion of Sennheiser’s TeamConnect system. The solution also comprises of a central-unit CU1 that offers an interface for network integration, SpeechLine microphones as well as active loudspeakers. The high quality Unified Communication solution is easily integrated into every existing room infrastructure making it the optimal tool for professional remote conferencing applications.

The fixed SpeechLine microphone can be ceiling mounted either onto or, near invisibly, flush with the ceiling itself. TeamConnect Ceiling is designed to fit within the space of a standard 600mm2 (2 ft.) ceiling panel, making it easier to install discretely. Intuitive colored LED-lights to indicate when the system is muted or in operation complete the overall subtle impression.

Sennheiser’s new ceiling microphone frees users from the limitations of tablemounted mics, offering greater flexibility, while ensuring great sound quality through innovative beamforming technology that automatically focuses on whichever person in the room is speaking. No matter how dynamic the speaker, TeamConnect Ceiling offers excellent speech clarity, so participants can feel free to sit, stand or move around.

“We are delighted to launch another conferencing solution within our Sennheiser TeamConnect family,” said Jens Werner, Portfolio Manager Business Communication at Sennheiser. “TeamConnect Ceiling draws on Sennheiser’s 70 years of audio expertise, to deliver excellent audio quality in an innovative design. It is very easy to use, virtually invisible when installed and provides unsurpassed positioning flexibility for business conferences.”

Extending the scope and flexibility of the TeamConnect family even further, Sennheiser has also launched TeamConnect Wireless. The first mobile, wireless solution for medium sized conferences, it makes it possible to hold a professional, high quality conference call in virtually any room.

The full TeamConnect range of professional audio conferencing solutions will be on show and available for demonstrations at ISE 2016, which takes place from February 9-12 in Amsterdam.
