Yamaha Unified Communications Set to Exhibit

September 12, 2018

Yamaha Unified Communications will be at SpiceWorld 2018 next month talking about its UC solutions. The company plans to leverage the Oct. 8-10 Austin

event to highlight the benefits CS-700 Video Sound Bar, YAI-1 Conference Ensemble, and YVC-200 speakerphone.

The CS-700 Video Sound Bar was designed for use in huddle rooms. This solution features four Yamaha speakers, a wide-angle HD camera, and an integrated network management system. For ease of use, it allows for quick connection to popular UC platforms via a single USB connection.

Yamaha’s YAI-1 Conference Ensemble is a preconfigured USB audio system for large conference rooms and boardrooms. It comes with cabling, a Dante AVIO USB adapter, and a digital signal processor. It also features a five-port PoE switch, two VXL1-16 PoE speaker arrays, and an eight-channel microphone system. Buyers can select from two packages: one with seven tabletop microphones and one wearable mic, or eight gooseneck mics.

The YVC-200 speakerphone is a lightweight, portable solution that allows for connections via Bluetooth and USB. It’s integrated with Yamaha’s adaptive echo cancellation and Human Voice Activity Detection, has intelligent microphones, and offers full-duplex sound. Available in black or white, the YVC-200 pairs quickly with NFC-enabled devices and works with such solutions as Cisco WebEx, Skype for Business, Zoom, and more.

“The scope of meeting environments has changed significantly. Now IT professionals are burdened with finding a UC portfolio with solutions that will accommodate huddle rooms and traveling executives as well as high-end boardrooms without sacrificing audio, IT capabilities, installation efficiencies, or ease of use,” said Timothy Mackie, field systems engineer at Yamaha UC. “At SpiceWorld, we’ll help IT professionals understand their meeting space requirements and demonstrate the right equipment for the job so they can be the unsung heroes of their companies.”
