Bluetooth conference phone
September 29, 2006 Polycom has released a new VoiceStation conference phone featuring Bluetooth. Designed for smaller meeting rooms and executive offices, the VoiceStation 500 conference phone is 33 per cent smaller than other Polycom models, and leverages Polycom's Acoustic Clarity Technology for full duplex, natural group conferencing that minimises background echoes, word clipping and distortion to provide a high-quality voice conferencing experience.
The VoiceStation 500 leverages 12 years of Polycom Acoustic Clarity Technology to offer crisp voice quality and natural two-way communication delivered through a high-performance speaker and three finely tuned microphones for 360-degree room coverage. It also has embedded Bluetooth wireless support enabling users to connect wirelessly to a mobile phone for conference calls, or to a computer for use with Internet calling services such as Skype, making it an ideal desktop device. If Bluetooth wireless capability is unavailable, users can also connect using an accompanying cable through an applications port on the phone.
