Yamaha Unified Communications Announces New Wireless Microphone Option to Extend Audio Capture for CS-700 Video Sound Bar

Date published: 5/7/2019

SUDBURY, Mass. — May 7, 2019 - Yamaha Unified Communications announced today a new wireless extension microphone for the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for Huddle Rooms. The wireless extension microphone (XW-CS-700) comes as another option to the existing wired model to extend the audio pickup. While the audio pick-up of the CS-700 is specifically optimized for people within a radius of about 12’/3.5m, the extension microphones available by Yamaha allow you to extend that range in an easy and unobtrusive integration.
2019-05_yamaha-031.jpg“The current wired extension microphone is great for having a fixed solution but is limited by the 25ft cable” said Holger Stoltze, senior director of technical sales and marketing. “Combining Yamaha’s wireless know-how with the CS-700 audio and video technology provides end customers the option to choose the best fit for their conference space and use-case”.
Allowing for longer distances between the CS-700 unit and the microphone, the wireless extension mic comprises a proprietary connection between the CS-700 connector and an HD Dual Receiver, a charger base and one omni-directional microphone (with the opportunity to purchase a second wireless microphone sold separately). The omni-directional microphone includes a rechargeable battery providing up to eight hours of talk time on full charge. The XW-CS-700 will be shipping in June.
Designed for huddle rooms, the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System delivers the highest quality audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a simple and smart wall-mounted unit that is easy to install and deploy. It features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for perfectly captured conversation; four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility; and a wide-angle HD camera for the far-end participants to see everyone in clear detail. Users can quickly connect to an organization's chosen UC platform using a single USB, eliminating the frustrations and inefficiencies of operating disparate video, audio, and collaboration components. In addition, the CS-700's integrated network management system allows IT staff to deploy and remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.
