Yamaha Unified Communications aims to help enterprises move toward consistent, simple, and high-quality collaboration experiences in any conference room and meeting space with its latest solutions.

Yamaha UC sales VP Michael Fitch says, "In this fast-paced world, meeting participants need to be able to feel comfortable and hear those on the far end clearly to brainstorm new ideas and accomplish goals.

"We're helping business and technology executives balance user demands with solutions that integrate with UC applications they're already using, are simple to deploy, and deliver clear, natural audio in every meeting environment.

For boardrooms and large conference rooms utilising UC applications, the Yamaha YAI-1 Wireless Microphone Conference Ensemble, a professional bundle, includes an eight-channel Executive Elite wireless microphone package; two VXL1-16P PoE, Dante-enabled speaker arrays with wall volume controller; a preconfigured digital signal processor; a five-port PoE switch; Dante AVIO USB adapter; and cabling.

Once the system is set up, it supposedly connects to any UC platform through a single USB cable. Utilising Yamaha's audio engineering expertise, the system supposedly features advanced acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) algorithms and dynamic microphone mixing technology that drives the audio experience and supposedly meets the requirement of enterprise IT departments for fast and simple installation and setup.

Supporting quality audio for remote meetings whenever and wherever the YVC-200 Portable USB + Bluetooth Speakerphone is supposedly designed to provide high-performance audio that goes everywhere with the user.

The device leverages Yamaha's AEC and human voice activity detection to boost productivity when meeting remotely or in an open workspace. The unit features an intelligent microphone that delivers full-duplex conversation without sound dropouts and a powerful speaker that produces audio that feels as if every remote participant on the call is in the room.

Designed for huddle rooms, the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System supposedly delivers quality audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a simple wall-mounted.

It features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for conversation, four Yamaha speaker elements and a wide-angle HD camera for the far-end participants to see everyone.  Users can connect to any UC platform via a single USB, aiming to eliminate the frustrations and inefficiencies of operating disparate video, audio, and collaboration components.

In addition, the CS-700's integrated network management system supposedly allows IT staff to deploy and remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.
