Revolabs transforms users’ devices into conference systems
The YVC-300 portable USB and Bluetooth conference phone is the result of Revolabs’ efforts to cater towards the needs of small collaboration spaces and huddle rooms. It is designed to deliver intelligible sound in ad hoc meeting areas, for groups of four to six people, providing flexibility and saving on costs with a portable solution that makes use of an organisation’s existing devices.
Users can connect the conference phone to a PC-based conferencing client via USB, or to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. When connected to a smartphone or tablet, the YVC-300 serves as the microphone and speaker, providing the ability to join in with the conversation to everyone in the room, effectively delivering conferencing capabilities to a user’s phone. Fast-pairing is also a connectivity option when used with NFC-enable devices.
Videoconferencing systems can also be connected to the device by way of audio input and output ports. All calls that are made across any of the connection interfaces are merged into a single call. The Yamaha subsidiary has also included its parent company’s sound processing technologies within the YVC-300m such as adaptive echo cancellation, background noise reduction and human voice activity detection.
