Yamaha UC Partners' Favorite Products

Author: Tyler Cox


Yamaha Unified Communications has strategic partnerships with more than a dozen companies around the globe to provide best-in-class communication solutions. Those partners provide products ranging from mounting solutions designed exclusively for Yamaha UC video sound bars and conference phones to software that works seamlessly with Yamaha UC products.


And even with the wide variety of products Yamaha UC offers, members of those partnership teams have their personal favorites. Here’s a sample of the products they particularly enjoy using:


Dan Zimmer – Regional Sales Manager, Western Canada at Datavisual Marketing

Favorite product: The YVC-200 personal or work-from-home speakerphone.


DataVisual Marketing Inc. is Canada’s leading distributor of presentation and audio/visual communication solutions. Yamaha’s Advocate of the Year award winner for 2021, Datavisual’s Dan Zimmer touts Yamaha UC on social media and is always the first to share Yamaha updates. Spending much of his time on the road, it’s no surprise Zimmer’s personal favorite is the YVC-200 speakerphone. The YVC-200 is designed to offer professional-quality audio while connected to your laptop, phone, or tablet, allowing you to take essential calls wherever, whenever. Its built-in rechargeable battery allows for complete portability for up to 10 hours, making it the ideal device for open workspaces, huddle rooms, home offices, and travel.


Randy Tritz – Partner and Branch Manager at Shen Milsom & Wilke 

Favorite product: ADECIA


The core purpose of acoustic, audiovisual & technology design consultants SM&W is to provide guidance and creative technology solutions that make the places we work, play, and live more functional, safe, and welcoming. Because of that mission, partner Randy Tritz’s favorite Yamaha UC product is the ADECIA ceiling microphone & line array speaker solution. ADECIA helps overcome challenges with implementation, configuration, and room acoustics by providing all components required for a successful installation, along with automated technologies that reduce setup time, costs, and complexities.


Tyler Ackerman – Director of Business Development at Draxxon 

Favorite product: the CS-700 video sound bar.


Draxxon is a global manufacturer of high-quality specialty vehicle solutions, integrating cutting-edge technology into vans, SUVS, trailers, and other mobile scenarios. It’s no wonder the CS-700 video sound bar is Ackerman’s favorite Yamaha UC product; it’s an essential piece of Draxxon’s new DX-1000 Advanced Virology Testing Platform (AVTP). Designed to provide an instantaneous response during COVID-19 and similar outbreaks/events, the AVTP is a self-contained, easy-to-operate mobile testing truck. The CS-700 AV allows medical personnel working at rapid testing sites to safely interact with each other inside and outside the unit while speeding up setup, operation, and data collection.


Clint Knudsen – Regional VP of Sales at Trox

Favorite product: the YVC-330 portable USB & Bluetooth conference phone.


Trox provides complete technology ecosystems with one goal in mind: improving learning outcomes. The company serves thousands of school districts, reaching 27 million students in North America. Trox earned Yamaha’s AV Education Hero Award for 2021 by providing guidance and education solutions to institutions facing challenges with new remote and hybrid learning styles. Utilizing Yamaha’s products, the company was able to help enhance these new environments and keep learning going during the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Knudsen has long worked with Yamaha UC to bring A/V solutions to the education sector. His personal favorite, the YVC-330 USB & Bluetooth conference phone, includes SoundCap technology that eliminates background noise from noisy working environments to allow participants on the other end of the call to focus on the conversation. Three unidirectional microphones with Human Voice Activity Detection pick up speech, not noise, and self-silence technology mutes the microphone while meeting participants are not speaking. Plug & play connectivity with driverless USB, Bluetooth, NFC, and audio in/out connection interfaces make setting up a breeze.
