Yamaha’s CS-700 Video Sound Bar Streamlines Meetings and Decreases Workload for the Supply Chain Technology Company
SUDBURY, Mass. — Oct. 13, 2020 — Yamaha Unified Communications is helping global companies achieve seamless, crystal-clear meetings with conferencing and collaboration solutions that offer superior AV quality and simple, fast deployment and setup. At the recommendation of IT consultant and installation firm Integrated Building Systems, Vantage Point Logistics (VPL) installed the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Bar in two video conferencing suites within its new headquarters in Ohio.
At its old location, VPL relied on separate audio and video equipment. The components cluttered the floor and tables with cables. In addition, individual devices created more work for already over-burdened technology administrators, who are responsible for overseeing and maintaining the software updates on a growing number of devices per room.
“Coming from a conference room where it was ad hoc, you don’t even notice the CS-700 at all,” said Brad Wendel, IT systems specialist at VPL. “It looks and sounds professional, but everyone is able to run the meeting on their own.”
The CS-700 leverages Yamaha’s years of expertise in high-quality audio for enterprise and live events. In developing the CS-700, Yamaha recognized the need for a comprehensive video conferencing system for small conference rooms. It is compatible with any UC software, supports the BYOD trend, and is simple to use, delivering incredible audio not heard in other solutions.
The CS-700 eliminates all of VPL’s hurdles by delivering the highest quality audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a single wall-mounted unit. Taking care of both audio and video requirements, it features an adaptive beamforming microphone array that ensures perfectly captured conversation anywhere in the room; four Yamaha speaker elements that guarantee sales reps don’t miss a word; and a wide-angle HD camera that captures everyone in the room in clear detail. Users can quickly connect to any UC platform via a single USB, eliminating the frustrations and inefficiencies of operating separate systems.
VPL also has the flexibility to use the CS-700 with the UC platform of their choosing. Currently the company’s UC software provider is Zoom, with which the CS-700 was tested and certified to seamlessly integrate. When users launch Zoom, the software automatically detects the CS-700, enables mute sync, and optimizes the audio in the Zoom cloud. 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.
“Achieving productivity in the high volume of meetings held today requires AV technology that overcomes all conferencing hurdles for end users as well as for IT specialists and AV professionals,” said Meghan Kennelly, Yamaha UC’s director of global marketing and communications. “VPL is a great example of how to satisfy all meeting needs. Yamaha’s conferencing and collaboration solutions are the ticket to sustaining high-quality, productive meetings.”
