        UC-SB1

        UC Video Conference Smart Sound Bar

        A sleek and stylish sound bar comprising a high-performance conferencing speakerphone in one stunning front-of-room device. Installs cleanly beneath the room display, and interfaces with any computer via USB. Includes connectivity for an external USB camera (not included).

        All in one incredible front-of-room device, the Crestron® UC Video Conference Smart Sound Bar (UC-SB1) facilitates effortless audio conferencing without any other microphones or speakers to install. Mounted on the wall or placed on a credenza beneath the main room display(s), the smart sound bar looks great and sounds even better in any small to medium-sized meeting space.

        High-powered stereo speakers, adaptive beamforming microphone, and advanced digital signal processing deliver exceptional full-duplex speakerphone performance with highly intelligible, echo-free voice clarity. Its compact, all-in-one design reduces clutter on the conference table, and even accommodates rooms with no table at all. A USB camera can be connected via a USB 3.0 port on the rear panel.

        See also model UC-SB1-CAM for a similar solution with built-in camera.

        USB Speakerphone
        The UC-SB1 is a high-performance AEC-enabled speakerphone compliant with Microsoft Teams® and Skype® for Business specifications. A USB camera can also be connected for a full video conferencing solution. It integrates with any computer running UC conferencing or web collaboration software, and also supports general presentation of computer-based AV content. A single USB 3.0 (2.0 compatible) connection provides a plug-and-play interface to the computer.

        Note: For Zoom Rooms™ conferencing applications, the UC-SB1 can be paired with a Crestron TSW-760 or TSW-1060 series touch screen along with a computer running Zoom Rooms software.

        The UC-SB1 behaves like any USB Audio class device, enabling use as a speaker and microphone for all types of multimedia applications running on a computer. Even if you’re not on a call, you can use the smart sound bar to share content with everyone in the room, or make a professional recording of the meeting, with exceptional results.

        Superb Sound Quality
        The smart sound bar facilitates perfectly natural conversations with exceptional audio fidelity and pickup. Its integrated 180° far-field microphone array faithfully captures voices throughout the room using adaptive beamforming technology to focus in on whoever is speaking. Its high-powered, two-way stereo speakers produce full, rich and real sounding audio for both voice and program material. High-performance AEC technology achieves transparent full-duplex performance free of distracting echo or noise. Additional digital signal processing assures optimal sound quality for an immersive experience, whether conferencing or presenting content.

        USB Camera Input
        The UC-SB1 includes a USB 3.0 camera port to accommodate an external USB camera. Connecting the camera to the sound bar facilitates full audio and video connectivity to the computer through a single USB interface.

        Enhanced Functionality
        The UC-SB1 smart sound bar integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of computer-based UC platforms. Plug-and-play USB connectivity enables control of the sound bar through the computer without requiring any extra software, remotes, or control system. The computer detects the sound bar connection automatically, and in turn the sound bar responds when a conference call is placed, speaker volume is adjusted, or the speaker or mic is muted. On the front of the sound bar, operational status is displayed by a stylish bar of light that expands outward as the volume is increased and changes colors to indicate connection and mute status.

        To simplify operation and conserve energy, the smart sound bar powers on automatically when an audio input signal is detected, and reverts to low-power standby mode when no signal is detected for several minutes.

        Analog Audio Input & Output
        Additional audio connectivity is provided through unbalanced stereo analog input and output jacks on the rear panel. The input accommodates any line-level audio source, which simply feeds to the internal amplifier and speakers with no volume control or other signal processing. The output is provided to feed an assistive listening system, and carries the same audio signal as the sound bar speakers.

        Easy Installation
        Installation is a breeze using the integral hinged mounting bracket, which attaches easily to the wall and allows the sound bar to be tipped forward for full access to the rear panel connections. Once installed and connected, the sound bar is held upright magnetically for normal operation. The bracket allows for attachment to any wall surface using two screws. A total of eight mounting keyholes, arranged in 2 inch (51 mm) increments, accommodates any wall stud spacing from 12 to 24 inches (305 to 610 mm).

        Alternately, the sound bar can be simply placed on a shelf or credenza. Optimal results are achieved by positioning the unit at ear/face height. A single 100-240 Volts AC outlet is required to power the unit.
