New Joint Product Offerings With Yamaha Streamline Workflows and Installations and Provide Customers High-Quality UC Experiences
SUDBURY, Mass. — May 16, 2017 — Revolabs®, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation, will demonstrate its portfolio of market-leading Unified Communications (UC) solutions at InfoComm 2017, June 14–16, in Orlando, Florida in booth 3281. At the show, attendees will see the all-new Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for Huddle Rooms, an AVB Networked Audio station, wired and wireless microphone systems, and the rich UC family of USB, VoIP, and Bluetooth® conference phones.
“Unified communications is one of the most important obstacles facing organizations today,” said Mick Kamihara, CEO of Revolabs. “Yamaha’s recent creation of a UC department demonstrates our determination to solve these evolving challenges. At InfoComm, we will present solutions that strengthen the integration between Revolabs and Yamaha to enable clearer, more productive collaboration in any environment.”
At InfoComm 2017, the first joint offering from Revolabs and Yamaha will be showcased. The Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms is the first solution that brings together audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a wall-mounted system, ensuring an intuitive meeting experience. It boasts a beamforming microphone array, which guarantees that every word is perfectly captured and delivered to the far end, four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility, and a wide-angle HD camera that captures every meeting participant in clear detail. An integrated USB port enables a seamless connection to an organization’s chosen UC platform, such as Microsoft® Skype for Business, Cisco® Spark, GoToConference™, Google Chromebox for Meetings™, Vidyo®, WebEx®, Zoom®, BlueJeans®, and many others. This plug-and-play approach allows users to quickly get started without wrestling with disparate video, audio, and collaboration components, thus eliminating complex steps from the process that can waste valuable meeting time or require the assistance of on-call IT staff. In addition, the CS-700’s integrated network management system allows IT staff to remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.
Also at the booth, the company will demonstrate an AVB Networked Audio station, a comprehensive conferencing setup featuring Revolabs’ flagship Executive Elite microphones, the Yamaha MRX7-D digital signal processor, the Yamaha XMV4140 power amplifier, Yamaha VXS5 speakers, and a Cisco Catalyst 3650 network switch. The Yamaha MRX7-D signal processor features built-in Dante digital audio networking and can now accept the AVB-enabled Pivitec e16i/o-MY card. This provides full AVB integration between Revolabs and Yamaha, allowing digital audio in and out and microphone control. Providing the versatility that video and audio conferencing in AV-monitored meeting spaces demands, the Executive Elite wireless microphone system comes in either 4- or 8-channel versions and may be used with any combination of tabletop, wearable, and gooseneck microphones. It delivers superior audio, improved signal-to-noise ratio, easy one-button operation, and enhanced signal communication over wireless links. Easily expandable, the microphones allow up to 20 hours of continued usage and intelligently conserve power when not in use.
Also on display will be Yamaha’s YVC-300 and YVC-1000 USB and Bluetooth conference phones. Designed for groups of four to six people and with portability in mind, the YVC-300 is a perfect choice for organizations that want to offer high-quality group communication solutions without the cost of dedicated equipment for every conference room or open collaboration space. Users can simply borrow a device from an available supply; connect it to their PC-based audio, video, and web conferencing client via USB connection; and return it at the end of the meeting. Bluetooth-enabled, it also turns smartphones and tablets into conference phones by acting as the microphone and speaker. For larger conference rooms and training rooms, the YVC-1000 conference phone features a separate microphone and full-range speaker unit that can be placed close to the video display so that audio and video from the remote location blend naturally.
Finally, Revolabs will also demonstrate its family of FLX™ UC USB and VoIP conference phones. Comprised of the FLX UC 500, FLX UC 1000, and FLX UC 1500 models, the series is designed to satisfy the critical requirement of high-quality audio for virtual meetings originating from offices, huddle rooms, and medium to large conference rooms. By making it easier for teams working from multiple locations to hear each other clearly, the FLX UC conference phones remove the barriers to effective, clear communication and collaboration — boosting productivity and eliminating frustration. The UC 1000 and 1500 models bring in VoIP capability in addition to the USB connectivity offered in both as well as the UC 500. These high-performing speakerphones are the preferred audio endpoints for many UC service providers today.
