Konftel has announced the launch of a new conferencing package suitable to today’s more flexible and challenging working world. The Konftel C20800 Hybrid is a video collaboration solution, designed for small up to large meeting rooms. It features the Konftel Cam20 4K conference camera, the scalable Konftel 800 conference phone with OmniSound and Konftel’s One Cable Connection Hub.
A single USB cable is all users need to connect the wide-angle camera, audio, and room’s screen to the collaboration app of their choice.
Jeff May, UK Sales Director said, “the Konftel Cam20 is optimised for situations where the conference camera needs to be positioned close to the table. The 123° field of view means that all the participants can sit in a comfortable position, even spaced apart and still fit into the video image. At the same time, the camera creates a distinctive sharp image with no distortion. But also, the Konftel Cam20 is equally at home in medium-sized and even large rooms thanks to its 4K capabilities.”
The Konftel Cam20 USB camera features Wide Dynamic Range technology that automatically adjusts to achieve an optimum picture in different light conditions, even low light, direct sunlight, and high contrast.
The Cam20 is complemented by the Konftel 800 conference phone that delivers a clear sound, to match the picture quality. It benefits from Konftel’s refined audio platform OmniSound with beamforming microphones.
Jeff said, “with the Konftel Smart Microphone, users can expand the pick-up range to handle larger conferences with many people in the room. Connect one or two expansion microphones, depending on the size of the room. The Konftel Smart Microphone has built-in cancellation of echo and background noise through OmniSound.
“The cascading feature extends both the sound distribution and pick-up range for maximum coverage, ensuring a rich and full audio even in large rooms. In addition, up to three Konftel 800 devices can be daisy-chained by cable to maximise social distancing and enhance the overall audio experience.”
The Konftel 800 offers connectivity for USB, Bluetooth and SIP, enabling the use of all today’s communication and collaboration tools, whether in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid environments.
‘Bring Your Own Meeting’ is another element as Jeff added, “Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet or any other cloud service…. whatever the user prefers, the flexible Konftel C20800 Hybrid video kit will take care of the meeting room experience. Bring the meeting with them on any laptop with a USB port, plug it in and they’re good to go.
“The Konftel C20800 Hybrid is equipped to address the needs of the workplace both now and in the future. In addition, Konftel is certified in line with the Climate Neutral standard. This means we have offset all our greenhouse gas emissions and are acting to further reduce those emissions. When choosing a Konftel product, users keep a clear climate conscience while supporting their organisation’s growing need for video collaboration.”
