Sound and video in a collaboration space go together like peanut butter and jelly in a grade-school lunch box. To bring the world’s of audio and video together in a neat, tidy package, Yamaha Unified Communications and Huddly have teamed up to create a new AV tool intended for meeting rooms and collaboration spaces. Debuting at InfoComm 2019, June 12-14, in Orlando, the Yamaha ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar bundles with Huddly’s AI wide-angle USB camera to create the Yamaha Collaboration Kit.
Audio and Video Unite for a One-Stop Collaboration Purchase
“Meeting participants demand two things no matter where they’re meeting: a seamless, intuitive experience and superior audio and video quality. As we continue to expand Yamaha’s wide breadth of superior UC solutions, these requirements are at the core of our design,” says Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha Unified Communications.
Adds Huddly CEO Jonas Rinde, “Yamaha has a well-deserved reputation worldwide for building high-quality audio products, and their UC portfolio is no exception. Our partnership is a terrific opportunity for end customers to experience their industry-leading audio, now combined with the high-quality, wide-angle, AI-powered video for which Huddly is known.”
Compact, Automatic Sound Optimization
The sound bar features two built-in subwoofers and bass-reflex port, along with two dome tweeters and two woofers. Its conference mode preset is specialized for installation in conference room spaces with enterprise-demanded functions for easy administration. The compact design, automatic sound optimization, and versatile mounting options make it ideal for various enterprise needs and designs.
The Yamaha Collaboration Kit’s camera from Huddly 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.
