Yamaha is all in on the unified communication (UC) market having developed Yamaha UC, a dedicated UC department. That group announces that its Yamaha UC YVC-1000MS speakerphone, which is certified for Skype for Business, is now shipping.
As a reminder, Yamaha acquired meeting room communication solution manufacturer Revolabs in 2014. During Enterprise Connect Orlando 2017, the Japanese electronics giant seemed to shift toward branding some meeting room solutions as Yamaha as opposed to Revolabs.
Yamaha YVC-1000MS is a good example. The USB speakerphone solution is engineered with Yamaha’s quality audio technology and expertise to enhance the Skype for Business meeting user experience, according to a press release.
The Yamaha YVC-1000MS microphone and speaker system have passed Skype for Business’ stringent Certification Version 3 tests, meeting the high standards that define the Skype for Business meeting experience with natural, clear audio, it adds.
More from Yamaha UC’s press release on Yamaha YVC-1000MS now shipping:
Yamaha UC, a dedicated department combining the expertise of Yamaha and Revolabs®, is now shipping the Yamaha YVC-1000MS, a USB speakerphone and Yamaha’s first product certified for Skype for Business.
It is engineered with Yamaha’s superior audio technology and expertise to enhance the user experience in large meeting rooms. Available worldwide, the microphone and speaker system passed Skype for Business Certification Version 3 tests — Microsoft’s highest standards — providing natural, clear audio that defines the platform’s meeting experience.
“The certification of the YVC-1000MS ensures audio specifically tuned to overcome the common challenges and limitations that can negatively impact productivity in a large meeting environment,” said Tats Umeo, group leader of UC product planning at Yamaha Corporation.
“Passing the rigorous testing procedure also guarantees it complements the rest of the Skype for Business application, creating intuitive and fluid collaboration across the entire UC platform. Now customers can experience the excellent sound quality that Yamaha is known for in their daily online meetings and conference calls.”
The unified communications speakerphone provides a scalable and flexible solution engineered to support the audio requirements of large meeting rooms, rooms with special table configurations, and even remote education classes or seminars within the Skype for Business application.
The intuitive design provides fast, simple connection to a PC via USB and/or smartphones with Bluetooth®. Featuring Yamaha’s adaptive echo cancellation and other unique sound processing technologies that have been developed over the years, the system facilitates stress-free conversation.
