Sennheiser told rAVe it’s shipping its TeamConnect Bars (TC Bars) all-in-one conferencing devices. ​The solution is available in two models depending on the meeting room size — TC Bar S and TeamConnect Bar M, scaling to the largest meeting rooms campus-wide. The TC Bar S features four microphones and two speakers, while the TeamConnect Bar M features six microphones and four speakers.

The company says the Sennheiser TC Bars are connected via one USB cable and integrate beamforming technology, the same technology found in the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling solutions. It also includes Sennheiser’s first camera offering: a 4K Ultra HD camera with AI features that include auto-framing and person tiling.

Sennheiser says the TC Bars provide scalable room setups with an onboard Dante port for extension mics and an option to add an external USB camera, catering to rooms requiring broader coverage. The TC Bars include multiple mounting options, built-in remote management via Sennheiser Control Cockpit, brand-agnostic integration with leading control systems and video conferencing platforms and advanced security with encrypted control communication and password protection.

For wireless collaboration, Sennheiser says the TC Bars have been tested and certified with Airtame, Barco and Crestron AirMedia. Third-party plug-ins that enable easy control and integration are available for Crestron, Extron, Lightware and Q-SYS, and can be found here for TC Bar M and here for TC Bar S. ​ Additionally, bundles with Lenovo and MAXHUB compute and controllers offer a compelling solution for Microsoft Teams and Zoom Room environments.
