SUDBURY, Mass. — Dec. 4, 2014 — Revolabs® today announced that the Yamaha YVC-1000 unified communications (UC) microphone and speaker system will be available through all of its certified sales channels in North America and Europe beginning January 2015. The UC solution is Yamaha's first since the company's acquisition of Revolabs earlier this year.
"Revolabs' product lines are the perfect match for Yamaha's renowned audio engineering capabilities," said Nobuo Ikematsu, business unit director, sound and network department, Yamaha. "With Revolabs' strong presence in the UC market, reputation for advanced technology, and extensive sales channels, we are confident that the YVC-1000 will be met with a warm welcome in North America and Europe."
Featuring Yamaha's latest microphone and speaker technology, including Human Voice Activity Detection, the YVC-1000 provides a seamless extension to any VTC or audio conferencing solution. Ideal for medium to large multipurpose rooms, the audio peripheral allows users to connect to virtual calls via Bluetooth or USB, enabling instant participation from personal devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers.
Equipped with audio in/out connections to support external speakers, the high-end solution also provides daisy-chain connectivity for up to five microphones, allowing A/V staff to easily cover rooms larger than 20 by 25 feet in size. To further simplify multiuse settings, the unit equalizes audio at the touch of a button using Yamaha's automatic audio tuning — applying signal processing advances such as echo cancelling, noise reduction, tracking, gain control, dereverberation, and more.
"This mutual agreement demonstrates the ongoing synergy shared by Revolabs and Yamaha's Sound and Network Department in providing a comprehensive set of audio solutions for any meeting space," said JP Carney, CEO, Revolabs. "For our customers, the YVC-1000 is a significant addition to the Revolabs product line-up, allowing them to now select from a full range of USB conference phones for conference rooms large and small."
