Yamaha Releases Enterprise Sound Bar and Collaboration Kit for Conference Rooms
Audio and video conferencing solutions supplier Yamaha Unified Communications has released the ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar and Collaboration Kit. It bundles an AI wide-angle USB camera from Huddly, a manufacturer of AI-powered conference cameras, with Yamaha’s ESB-1080.
The ESB-1080 offers full-range speaker output for conference rooms via two built-in subwoofers, a bass-reflex port, two dome tweeters, and two woofers. Its conference mode preset is specialized for installation in conference room spaces with enterprise-oriented functions tailored for easy administration, says the company. Its design includes automatic sound optimization, and versatile mounting options.
The Yamaha Collaboration Kit’s Huddly camera provides 150-degree wide-angle 1080p video, an embedded mic array, automated AI features, and the Huddly InSights analytics API. With the Genius Framing feature, the camera can automatically detect and frame participants in its field of view, eliminating the need to manually control the camera.
“Moving into the future, the key to successful collaboration will focus on two things: the clearest possible audio and flawless video that intelligently responds to those in the room,” said Michael Fitch, vice president of global sales and marketing at Yamaha Unified Communications. “With our new sound bar, we’ve made it incredibly easy to achieve the great, uncompromised audio that every meeting hinges upon. By bundling that with a video camera brought to by experts in AI, we eliminated the complicated purchase, deployment, and operation process so organizations can achieve their unified collaboration strategy faster and more cost effectively.”
