Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Yamaha, Revolabs, Steno Services

July 01, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

The week started off with a look at the new Yamaha CS-700 huddle room conferencing solution. Huddle rooms are essentially a much smaller version of a standard conferencing room. They’re geared toward smaller groups of users, which means that smaller conferencing solutions are needed. However, it’s important to make sure that quality does not suffer due to the change in conferencing solutions. That’s why Yamaha has released its new conferencing solution, the CS-700. Find out more about the conferencing solution HERE.

TMC’s Tracey Schelmetic also discussed the new solution from Yamaha. She goes deeper into the list of features, stating, “The Yamaha CS-700 combines HD video capture with ultra-wideband audio to fulfill video, audio, and collaboration requirements in one simple, remotely monitorable wall-mounted system.” Her full coverage is HERE.

In other news, Revolabs released a white paper this week titled  “Digital Signal Processing: Its Role in Unified Communications.” According to the white paper, digital signal processing (DSP) can overcome all the issues of audio inherent in conferencing by manipulating digital signals to get a desired outcome. 

“That could be finding a radar target amidst clutter or facial recognition in a photo. In audio conferencing applications, it removes unwanted noise and sound effects from the call. The DSP system contains hardware- and/or software -encoded algorithms that process electrical signals,” according to Revolabs. “It can filter out audio issues and send a clean digital signal to its destination for conversion back to analog (i.e. the loudspeaker). In a meeting, DSP is there to manage audio. It’s needed to provide intelligible, clear audio to remote participants.”

Finally, Oklahoma City’s Steno Services is adding a video conferencing suite to provide comprehensive services for attorneys with remote depositions and more. Frank Griffin writes, “According to the company, the conferencing system is an in-office suite with the latest communications features. The platform brings together VoIP, Call-in, Call-me and other options with HD quality.” Everything you need to know is HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
