Date published: 12/7/2015

SUDBURY, Mass. – December 7, 2015Revolabs, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation, announced that The Channel Company’s technology review arm, CRN® Test Center, has named its FLX™ UC 1500 Conference Phone a 2015 Product of the Year. Recognized companies represent best-in-breed technological innovation backed by a supportive channel partner program. The FLX UC 1500 Conference Phone received the award for the office equipment category.

Throughout the year, CRN provides in-depth coverage of an extensive array of products across a wide range of categories. CRN's annual Product of the Year awards are selected by editors from among that pool. This year’s highlighted award categories include Android devices, client software, components, data center, desktops, enterprise storage, Internet of Things, mobile, office equipment, PC sticks, peripherals, printers, rugged, security, SMB networking and SMB storage. Products are recognized for a number of factors, including quality, uniqueness of features, ease of setup and use, and ability to increase worker productivity and reduce cost and complexity for solution providers, IT departments and end users.

The FLX UC 1500 IP & USB Conference Phone began shipping to customers in June 2015. It is designed for conference rooms larger than those for which earlier FLX offerings are intended and includes two extension microphones to create a wider pick-up range. Its high-performance speaker also gives it more powerful sound output to fill larger spaces. Using the same superior audio technology as the earlier FLX UC 500 USB conference phone and the FLX UC 1000 USB & IP conference phones, the FLX UC 1500 supports USB audio for softphone calls and SIP telephony for all market leading IP PBXs and features call bridging between VoIP and USB calls. System implementers can use the FLX UC 1500 to configure an all-in-one conference room equipment solution that provides superior audio clarity. The FLX UC 1500’s performance was “field-tested” in a variety of modern conference room settings, including those with reverberating glass walls, hardwood tables and floors, and other environmental challenges to great audio. In each one, it delivered industry-leading call clarity, quality, and volume so that users on both ends of a call can “Hear Every Word.”

“Technical excellence in products that have the ability to drive sales and create an immediate and long-lasting impact on a solution provider’s business, backed by a technology vendor that understands and supports the channel, is a winning combination deserving recognition," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "We salute our Product of the Year honorees for their determination to create products that provide real value and their desire to support the channel as their go-to-market strategy.”

In acknowledging the award, JP Carney, CEO, of Revolabs, notes, “Everyone at Revolabs is thrilled by the recognition that comes with receiving a CRN Product of the Year Award. We’re all very proud that industry experts from CRN recognized the clearer, better calls the FLX UC 1500 provides for Unified Communications. The easy-to-use FLX UC 1500 makes collaborating with colleagues located anywhere around the world simpler than ever before.”
