Yamaha Unified Communications Showcases Professional Conferencing Solutions and European Market Commitment at ISE 2020
The Netherlands – In keeping with the motto 'Where Corporates Meet Entertainment', Yamaha is showcasing a broad product range for both the enterprise and the entertainment markets at Integrated Systems Europe 2020, highlighting the close relationship between the company’s Unified Communications (UC) and professional audio business units in Europe.
Exhibiting on stand 3-C95, the UC presence will highlight the three categories of its product portfolio, all designed to deliver communication with pristine audio quality. UC will be launching its latest conference phone, the YVC-330, which combines a compact, portable design with excellent clarity. Innovative SoundCap technology uses Far Field Noise Reduction (FFNR) to eliminate background noise, ensuring perfect speech intelligibility even in loud environments such as open-plan offices. It also features an automatic mute function, which engages when participants are not speaking, This enhances the performance of Yamaha’s Human Voice Activity Detection technology, which instantly distinguishes human voices from other sounds. The YVC-330 can easily be connected to laptops, tablets or smartphones via USB, Bluetooth or NFC, ensuring it is ready to use in any situation.
Yamaha UC also offers video sound bars as all-in-one AV solutions, including the CS-700 with integrated camera for the perfect, voice-optimized solution for small and medium rooms. It can be easily wall-mounted and blends into the interior design of any meeting space. Using an adapter, only one cable is needed to establish the connection to a desktop or laptop computer and initiate conferences. A four microphone beamforming array captures every word, while the camera covers 120° to keep an eye on everything. Compatible with USB, Bluetooth and NFC, the CS-700 is a flexible, versatile and affordable solution for video conferences with pristine sound quality in any environment.
The third category of the UC product portfolio is wireless conference microphone systems for unsurpassed audio quality in meeting rooms, training facilities and auditoriums. Executive Elite and HD series professional microphone systems, for example, work perfectly in combination with the powered loudspeaker systems and audio processors that Yamaha’s Pro Audio division is exhibiting at ISE 2020. To guarantee easy operation in any application, all Yamaha Unified Communications products are compatible with all common software and platform solutions, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or WebEx.
“With Unified Communications, Yamaha brings the expertise from its Pro Audio segment to the field of enterprise conferences and communications. Audio is the most important part of communication - increased voice quality and easy integration make conferences and training courses more efficient. It is our goal that Yamaha will be recognised throughout Europe as an expert in sound in this field,” states Marcus-Michael Müller, responsible for Yamaha UC in Europe since September 2019.
The Yamaha UC product portfolio brings professional conference technology with high quality audio into a wide range of environments, from the home office to large meeting rooms at global companies and university auditoriums. Marcus-Michael and his team are working hard to ensure that European Unified Communications customers enjoy the best service, establishing new sales and distribution channels and working closely with systems integrators on more complex projects.
“To ensure widespread availability and swift service throughout Europe, we will continue to diversify our distribution system and develop new sales channels,” he says. “Products for smaller and medium conference systems are available to resellers and commercial users via the distribution channel while, for complex installations that require installation services in particular, we will work closely with system integrators to provide comprehensive consultation and support for the customer.”
Yamaha is exhibiting on Booth 3-C95 at ISE 2020, which takes place at the Amsterdam RAI from 11-14 February.
