QSC Teams Up With Microsoft For Rooms — AV.technology
Extends the Microsoft Teams Room experience seamlessly into larger divisible spaces, training rooms, executive boardrooms, and all-hands spaces.
QSC announces a complete portfolio of meeting room accessories certified for Microsoft Teams. QSC has worked with Microsoft Teams certified partners Sennheiser and Logitech to provide complete room solutions that simplify installation and management for high-value divisible spaces, training rooms, executive boardrooms, and all-hands spaces while delivering a high quality Microsoft Teams experience for end users.
“These newly certified solutions give IT and AV Managers the opportunity to extend their Microsoft Teams experience into rooms that traditionally required complicated programming, separate DSP and control integration schemes”, says Jason Moss, VP of Alliances & Market Development, QSC. “We have worked with Microsoft to remove the guesswork out of specialty room design and deployment for Teams Rooms.”
“The integration process of Sennheiser microphones into Microsoft Teams Rooms is seamless and simple with our new Q-SYS plugin. It allow admins to easily configure and control solutions like our TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone,” says Charlie Jones, Global Business Development Manager at Sennheiser. “Together with QSC, we are excited to help users experience the power of a Teams Room on a larger scale.”
QSC’s newly-certified Teams Rooms accessory portfolio centres on the Q-SYS Ecosystem and the Q-SYS 110f Core processor, which uniquely combines audio, video, and control capabilities, for QSC native or third-party peripherals, into a single integrated appliance.
Further support is provided by a full line of SPA Series power amplifiers and the complete range of QSC AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers delivering high sonic fidelity and ease of installation. Q-SYS NS Series network switches designed and manufactured by Dell EMC and pre-configured by QSC can be used to further simplify installation, setup, and management.
QSC and Sennheiser have also partnered to include the Teams Rooms certified Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone, including a control plugin for quick and easy software integration into the Q-SYS Ecosystem.
In addition, the flexibility designed into the software-based Q-SYS Ecosystem provides scalable, standards-based AV infrastructure that simplifies integration with many other Teams Rooms certified accessories, including the Logitech Tap touch controller and Logitech Rally Camera. Full room solutions can now be easily designed and configured to address the unique needs of larger physical spaces including additional processing requirements and more challenging audio/speech/video reinforcement typically required in more complex, high-value, specialised spaces.
