VTech ErisStation Drives a Revolution in Audio Conferencing
Beaverton, Ore – Conference phones are ubiquitous in business meeting rooms today, enabling groups to communicate and collaborate. Conference call quality is often compromised because of background noise and interference, ultimately impacting productivity and impeding effective collaboration. The ErisStation conference phone with four wireless mics from VTech Communications Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of VTech Holdings Limited (HKSE: 303), is the perfect solution for workplace communications, delivering superior voice quality and pickup range for any size room.
The ErisStation (VCS704, MSRP: US$599) features four, portable DECT 6.0 microphones with Orbitlink Wireless Technology™ that allow meeting participants to spread out and speak without having to raise their voices. Whether employees are right next to the phone or across the room, everyone will hear the conversation clearly. The four microphones sit in the compact ErisStation base for convenient storage, while a built-in charging station with magnetic bays powers the microphones so they are always ready for use. The wireless microphones also have up to eight hours of talk time and up to 70 hours of battery life to accommodate long calls.
Sound quality, one of the most important components to any conference phone, is top of the line for the ErisStation. Dynamic noise reduction (DNR) automatically eliminates distracting ambient noise for clear conversations. Computer fans and noisy ventilation systems in the background will no longer distract participants or muffle conversations. Echo cancellation, integrated digital mixing technology and an audio equalizer also contribute to the superior sound quality, ensuring every word of every call is heard.
