Revolutionizing Hybrid Meetings: Q-SYS Unveils Support for Spatial Audio for Microsoft Teams Rooms

Today, I’m thrilled to share a game-changing development in the world of hybrid meetings. Q-SYS has just introduced the first certified for Microsoft Teams solution supporting spatial audio in a Microsoft Teams Room. Join me as we explore the exciting world of spatial audio and how it will transform the way we connect, communicate, and collaborate. 

So, what’s spatial audio, and why is it a game-changer? Well, let’s dive in!

Spatial audio brings your meetings to life in a whole new way. This advanced feature makes meetings more natural and reduces meeting fatigue. Attendees can clearly hear each person’s voice coming from their relative location on the Signature Teams Rooms display.  

A Signature Microsoft Teams Room with spatial audio includes several key components: Teams-certified Q-SYS Core 8 Flex processor, SPA Series amplifiers, AcousticDesign Series surface mount loudspeakers, and the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2) beamforming microphone array. The software-based processing allows you to achieve crystal-clear audio with no echo leaks. The even 150° horizontal coverage of the AD-S Column Loudspeakers ensures that everyone hears every word from far end talkers.

With spatial audio, sound emanates from the direction of the person speaking in the on screen gallery. For example, if a person located on the right side of the meeting gallery speaks, the audio comes from the speaker located closest to that location. This kind of immersive audio experience helps meetings more closely resemble an in-person conversation. Imagine conversations that flow naturally, creating an atmosphere where participants feel as if they are in the same room, regardless of where they are in the room or across the globe.
