The portable EXPAND SP 30T device can support conferencing on the go for up to eight participants
Global audio specialist Sennheiser developed a new portable wireless speakerphone designed specifically for businesses implementing Microsoft Teams.
Launched at Ignite 2019 and available from December, the EXPAND SP 30T speakerphone is designed to support conferences involving up to eight participants. The compact and lightweight device can be set up as a permanent conference room solution, or thanks to its 18-hour battery life, cable winding and safe dongle storage, it can also be carried around to facilitate conferences on the go.
Key features include portable Bluetooth or USB-C connection, multipoint connectivity for up to three devices, an ultra-low distortion speaker and echo and noise-cancelling microphones supported by highly advanced DSP algorithms to provide “crystal clear” audio. The EXPAND SP 30T speakerphone also has a dedicated Microsoft Teams button .
“The integration with Microsoft Teams promotes a more intuitive, streamlined workplace of the future – boosting efficiency, increasing collaboration, and enabling innovation,” said Theis Moerk, vice president of product management enterprise solutions at Sennheiser. “Supporting the Microsoft product suite allows our customers to further reimagine the way they work regardless of their environment.”
Users can open Microsoft Teams directly from the speakerphone, check the Microsoft Teams connection status via the white LED light, and receive notifications for missed calls, voice messages and meetings in progress. They can also activate Cortana.
“As our customers increasingly depend on Microsoft Teams for calling and meetings in their modern workplace, devices like the Sennheiser Expand SP 30T play an important role in enabling a high-quality experience for today’s highly mobile users,” said Ilya Bukshteyn, partner director for Microsoft Teams Devices. “Sennheiser’s portfolio of Certified for Microsoft Teams devices provides our joint customers with the solutions they need to use Microsoft Teams wherever they may be.”
