AUGUST 08, 2022 - Since 1953, the world's oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes every year the iF DESIGN AWARD. The 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, awards outstanding design from various categories such as product, communication, packaging and user experience (UX). The intelligent speaker optimized for Microsoft Teams (TC ISP) won over the jurors with its minimalistic design that allows for intuitive use. TC ISP was designed by Zurich-based brand and product design consultancy Notation Creative Consulting.
The conference speaker was created to give teams a whole new way to collaborate: smart, focused, and inclusive, as if everyone were in one place. Automatic meeting notes make an inclusive meeting experience possible for remote and hard-of-hearing participants. The product offers an omnidirectional speaker and covers a 3.5m radius with 7 integrated beamforming microphones.
The competition for TC ISP was intense: almost 11,000 entries were submitted from 57 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality. More information can be found in the "Winners & Ranking" section on www.ifdesign.com.
TC ISP is part of Sennheiser's Business Communication portfolio with Corporate and Higher Education Solutions. The intelligent speaker is the latest addition to the meeting & conference segment, which includes other outstanding products such as the ceiling microphone TeamConnect Ceiling 2 with patented automatic dynamic beamforming technology.
