The TeamConnect Bar from Sennheiser is expected to be available by Q2 2024.
In a collaborative effort between Sennheiser SA and Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG, a series of workshops under the banner “Meet the TeamConnect Family Roadshow” has concluded, spanning across South Africa and Namibia. The workshops, held in key cities like Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Windhoek, were strategically crafted to showcase Sennheiser’s cutting-edge innovations tailored for higher education, corporate meeting spaces, and auditoriums, with a spotlight on the latest TeamConnect conferencing solutions.
Designed with integrators and business owners in mind, the workshops featured Sennheiser’s newly introduced TeamConnect Bar S and TeamConnect Bar M video bars, the first product of its kind in the Sennheiser portfolio, as well as the popular TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC 2) and TeamConnect Ceiling Medium (TCC M) ceiling microphones.
Ashley Coleman, General Manager at Sennheiser SA, said: “We are excited to share these new products with our clientele. Our TeamConnect video bars can be integrated with our existing products, as well as other leading meeting room technology. These products greatly expand our boardroom solution offering, and we’re delighted to give our clients the opportunity to learn about our solutions first-hand during the roadshow.”
The workshops, designed with integrators and business owners in mind, featured hands-on technical training sessions, real-life usage examples, and demonstrations of both new and established Sennheiser products. Christian Almer, Sennheiser Technical Application Engineer, led these sessions, providing insights on product configuration, connection, and the integration of Sennheiser devices using the brand’s versatile Control Cockpit Software.
Almer added: “It was a great pleasure to see the participants get a lot of “eye-openers” and be able to inspire them in new ways of working with audio, such as TruVoicelift, featured with our TCC 2 and TCC M ceiling microphones. I am very grateful for the collaboration we had with our partner Sennheiser SA to make these events happen.”
Simone Hansen, Country Partner Manager at Sennheiser GmbH, stated: “The expectations for these events were not only met, they were exceeded. Many integrators and end-customers dedicated their valuable time to our events and made use of every minute of the workshops. I was so glad to witness so many eye-opening remarks about the new learnings we delivered.”
One of the key focuses of the roadshow was the TeamConnect Bar, Sennheiser’s first video bar in this category. With competitive pricing, advanced features, and seamless compatibility with existing Sennheiser products, the video bars are designed for small to medium boardrooms, expanding Sennheiser’s offerings in both the corporate and education markets. Notably, TeamConnect Bar is one of the few video bars on the market to incorporate Dante connectivity.
The diverse audience at the workshops included dealers, system integrators, and representatives from the education and business sectors, including leading universities in South Africa and Namibia. Attendees praised the workshops for their insights and described them as “exciting and insightful.”
The roadshow strengthened relationships with system integrators and paved the way for future collaborations. Sennheiser’s commitment to being brand-agnostic and its alliance partnerships were underscored throughout the sessions.
“After recently attending the Sennheiser Road Show, it was good to see the continuation and reiteration of the concepts and technology introduced at ISE 2023, as well as some exciting new future plans,” commented Sean Bethell of AVT, who attended the Cape Town session. Another attendee described the workshop as “very exciting and insightful.”
“Although it can be challenging to plan these events on short notice and across several locations, it was all worth it in the end,” explained Coleman. “The workshops give us a platform from which to build relationships, grow the Sennheiser footprint and even close several deals. It feels great to be part of the success story of Sennheiser in this region.”
Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Bar is scheduled to be available by Q2 2024.
