Konftel is now ready to begin selling its new range of packages, designed to take all the hassle out of video conferences.
Common to all of Konftel’s new video packages is their support for Bring Your Own Meeting, where the user brings the video conference to the meeting room on their laptop. A single USB cable is all you need to connect up the speakerphone, the conference cam and the room’s screen for superb sound and images during your meeting. The concept is called Konftel OCC – One Cable Connection.
Earlier this year, analysis firm Frost & Sullivan presented Konftel with a Best Practices Award, asserting in the award report that the company is set to disrupt the traditional conference phone market with the launch of its video packages. The development work has taken longer than Konftel originally planned but compromising on ease of use was never an option.
Torbjörn Karlsson, Product Manager at Konftel said, “we know the most important thing for a shared conferencing solution is that anyone can use it with ease. You need to be able to just take the orange cable on the table, plug it in and be good to go. We’ve therefore had a laser focus on developing cameras of the highest quality and creating a super-simple hub solution to complement the incredible audio that is such a signature of ours.”
Sales of Konftel’s video packages, Konftel Collaboration Solutions, are now beginning globally. Deliveries may be limited in certain markets to start with. Small, medium and large package solutions will be available right from day one, catering for everything from small meeting rooms (huddle rooms) for up to six people to large conference rooms with 20 people. The starting price for the video packages is £419.
As well as the high-performance video cameras, all the solutions include one of Konftel’s speakerphones with OmniSound and a Konftel OCC Hub. Customers who already use Konftel’s conference phones can add the video camera and Konftel OCC hub.
Peter Renkel, CEO of Konftel added, “it’s high time the world’s workplaces had access to simple video solutions. It’s video for the people, basically. Historically, video conferencing has been rather odd and convoluted, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve solved the problem in a really smart and cost-effective way.”
