Conferencing-Enabled Huddle Rooms

Author: Meghan Kennelly

Did you know that according to Wainhouse Research, as of last year there are about 30-50 million huddle rooms across the globe?

It’s no surprise that these types of rooms are more prevalent now. Our technology allows us to connect with anyone – anywhere – anytime we want. Thus, needing a space that accommodates this type of relaxed, more open communication.

While a number of these rooms now exist, most of these huddle spaces are not equipped with conferencing communication gear.

Revolabs, part of Yamaha UC aims to change that.

These new spaces demand technologies that are more convenient and enable a seamless collaboration experience so users can easily come together to exchange information, share ideas, and collaborate at any time. 

In June of 2017, Yamaha introduced the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Bar™. The Yamaha CS-700 is specifically designed as an all-in-one unit to equip huddle rooms with ultra-wideband audio and high-quality video to fulfill video, audio, and collaboration requirements in one simple, wall-mounted system addressing all communication and collaboration requirements._DSC5304.png

For clear, stress-free collaboration, the CS-700 boasts a beamforming microphone array, four speaker elements and a special wide-angle video camera that captures all meeting participants in the room, even those close to the camera.
Through the integrated USB port, the CS-700 is ready to connect to the organization’s chosen unified communications platform, such as Microsoft®Skype for Business, Cisco® Spark, GoToConference™, Google Chromebox for Meetings™, Vidyo®, WebEx®, Zoom®, BlueJeans®, and many others.

This plug-and-play approach allows users to quickly get started without wrestling with disparate video, audio, and collaboration components in the room.

While this solution plays into the ease of use of these huddle room environments for the end user, the integrated remote management capability enables IT departments across the world to remotely monitor and manage their huddle room installations.
