AltiGen Delivers Free HD Audio Conferencing on iPhone

AltiGen Communications has unveiled free high-definition audio conferencing when using the iFusion SmartStation with Callvine's (News - Alert) HD Voice Conferencing iPhone application.


Callvine provides high-definition audio conferencing on the iPhone and its free app and service complements the iFusion SmartStation.

“With Callvine, the iFusion delivers superior HD sound quality for conferencing using its comfortable handset or its convenient speakerphone,” said Rudy Prince, Callvine CEO.

“We see the iFusion as a great fit for many of our business users that rely on the iPhone (News - Alert) for conference calls. The ability to dock and charge the phone while joining a conference over Wi-Fi makes conferencing both easy and convenient while virtually eliminating dropped calls within buildings.”

AltiGen (News - Alert) Communications is a provider of software-based Unified Communications. The company notes that the iFusion SmartStation pairs the iPhone with the iFusions' ergonomic handset or business-grade speakerphone via built-in Bluetooth.

This multi-function iPhone docking station is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S.

iFusion charges the iPhone, offers streaming music playback (A2DP), an audio jack for external speakers and USB pass through for syncing to a Mac or PC.

"We see business use of high-definition audio rapidly expanding and apps such as Callvine are bringing HD Voice capabilities to the iPhone," said AltiGen VP of Sales Mike Plumer. "With iFusion and Callvine, business users can now quickly and easily bring the power of HD Voice to their desktops and conference rooms."

AltiGen Communications was in news earlier this year when Coastline Housing deployed AltiGen's MaxACD for Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync Server.
