Sennheiser today announced that its TeamConnect Bars (TC Bars) are now Certified for Microsoft Teams. The company says this certification enables Microsoft Teams users to experience hybrid meetings that combine  Sennheiser audio with 4K Ultra HD video, marking a “significant step” in unified communications.

As the latest additions to the Sennheiser TeamConnect (TC) Family, Sennheiser says the TC Bars are available in two models to suit varying meeting room sizes — the TeamConnect Bar S, featuring four microphones and two speakers, and the TeamConnect Bar M, equipped with six microphones and four speakers.

“We are so pleased that our TeamConnect Bars have joined the other members of our TeamConnect Family to become Certified for Microsoft Teams,” said Charlie Jones, Sennheiser’s global alliance and partnership manager. “Certification for Teams has become essential for our meeting solutions, as we consistently receive feedback on the benefits our customers experience using our products in Microsoft Teams Rooms. The new TeamConnect Bars represent another robust Sennheiser solution, delivering clear audio and for the first time, video, to Teams meetings.”

“As we continue to recognize the essential role of audio clarity in today’s dynamic meeting environments, we are pleased to welcome Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Bars into the Microsoft Teams ecosystem,” said Albert Kooiman, senior director,  Microsoft Teams Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft. “Sennheiser’s nearly 80-year legacy in high-quality audio continues with the TeamConnect Bar, seamlessly integrating with Microsoft Teams to enhance meeting experiences.”

Sennheiser says TC Bars are plug-and-play devices, meaning users get a quick start via USB. Integrated beamforming technology, as found in the TC Ceiling solutions, enables “freedom of movement” and “seamless transitions” between presenters, complemented by a camera with advanced AI features, such as auto-framing and person tiling. The full-range stereo speakers ensure natural speech and outstanding intelligibility.

Additionally, the company says the TC Bars offer flexible and 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. Multiple mounting options and remote management via Sennheiser Control Cockpit simplify integration into any space.

Sennheiser says it continues to develop solutions that are compatible with Microsoft Teams, aiming to provide users with “exceptional meeting experiences.”
