Konftel will be previewing some of the year’s newest products at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam.
The video portfolio is expanding to include Konftel CC200, an all-in-one solution comprising a conference cam with integral video codec and support for collaboration apps such as Teams, Zoom and Webex. The new Konftel 70 speakerphone will form a natural component of video packages for huddle rooms and medium-sized meeting rooms.
Corporate culture is in a period of rapid transition globally and this is translating into more meetings, with fewer participants and at least one person taking part remotely. To meet users’ expectations, these numerous small meeting rooms or huddle rooms need to be fully equipped for convenient video conferencing. Annual growth of 38 per cent is forecast for this market segment between now and 2023.
Tommy Edlund, Global Sales Director at Konftel said, “we’re already seeing this strong market demand in relation to our USB video kit for meeting rooms of all sizes, which we launched in the fall of 2018. The step is to address the major group of customers who are calling for an all-in-one solution for video conferencing, without having to rely on the user’s laptop or a room’s PC.”
The Konftel CC200 is the first model in the company’s new product category Collaboration Cameras. It is an all-in-one device for video conferencing, which supports SIP and H.323 and so works with all standard-based video systems, equipment and video conferencing services. At the same time, it can be used directly with popular collaboration tools such as Teams, Zoom and Webex, thanks to its status as an open environment for Android apps.
Torbjörn Karlsson, Product Manager at Konftel said, “it takes no more than a few minutes to install a Konftel CC200 and there is no need to run new cables in the room. Once up and running, the user can count on sharp video and stable audio, since this dedicated video conferencing device is not reliant on the quality of a PC to function as a video platform. This ease of use will inspire employees to use video in their distance meetings, instead of just audio.”
The Konftel 70 speakerphone complements the company’s portfolio of USB and Bluetooth products, offering simplicity, performance and design.
Torbjörn added, “we see the Konftel 70 primarily as a key component of video package solutions, along with our conference cams and the Konftel OCC hub. There is no reason to compromise on sound quality and audio performance in your video conference, just because the speakerphone uses a USB connection. Far too many meeting rooms are equipped with small and inferior audio devices, but we’re putting an end to all that.”
Konftel will be previewing the Konftel CC200 and Konftel 70 at ISE in Amsterdam, between February 11th–14th.
