NEW WIRELESS MIC OPTION FOR CS-700 SOUND BAR
Yamaha Unified Communications announces a new wireless extension microphone for the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms. Now customers can choose between the new XW-CS-700 wireless mic or the existing wired model for their collaborative requirements. Unobtrusive and easy to integrate, the mic extends audio pickup beyond the CS-700’s 12-foot radius while eliminating cable clutter from today’s modern huddle spaces.
“The wired extension microphone is great for many environments, but in some larger applications, the 25-foot cable isn’t long enough or needs to be hidden,” said Holger Stoltze, senior director of technical sales and marketing, Yamaha Unified Communications. “We have combined our wireless mic know-how with the audio and video technology innovation we introduced in the CS-700 to provide end users with more options to best fit their conference space and application needs.”
The new XW-CS-700 wireless extension mic uses a proprietary connection between the CS-700 connector and an HD Dual microphone receiver, which allows for a greater distance between the CS-700 unit and the microphone. A second wireless microphone is also available. The omni-directional wireless microphone includes a charger base and a rechargeable battery that delivers up to eight hours of talk time on full charge. The XW-CS-700 will begin shipping in June.
Designed for huddle rooms, the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System delivers the highest-quality audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a simple and smart wall-mounted unit that is easy to install and deploy. It features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for perfectly captured conversation; four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility; and a wide-angle HD camera for the far-end participants to see everyone in clear detail. Users can quickly connect to an organization’s chosen UC platform using a single USB, eliminating the frustrations and inefficiencies of operating disparate video, audio, and collaboration components. In addition, the CS-700’s integrated network management system allows IT staff to deploy and remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.
