Sennheiser has announced that its TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone is now compatible with Zoom Video Communications’ Zoom Meetings, as is the Bose ES1, an in-ceiling unified communications system consisting of the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 mic, Bose ControlSpace EX-440C conferencing DSP, EdgeMax EM180 in-ceiling loudspeaker and PowerSpace P2600A amplifier.
Zoom is a video communications tool that has become an increasingly important resource for many businesses in light of the digital transformation of the workplace, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Collaboration tools must enable people to connect seamlessly and with confidence,” says Charlie Jones, global business development manager for Sennheiser’s Business Communication segment. “The Bose/Sennheiser solution does just that, and we are very excited to announce that this solution is now officially compatible with Zoom. The importance of video conferencing and webinar solutions has increased massively during the coronavirus crisis, and so has the significance of touchless microphone systems like TeamConnect Ceiling 2.”
Martin Bodley, director and global head, Bose Work at Bose, adds, “We’re extremely proud to be part of a reliable, in-ceiling audio solution that is Zoom compatible. The Bose ES1 brings together a selection of innovative products that deliver the perfect combination of transparent technology to support how and where people work – so you can focus on what’s important.”
Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone uses adaptive beamforming to automatically pick up the person speaking in a conference room. The mic is designed to provide freedom of movement, flexible use of conference rooms and high audio quality.
