Konftel Introduces Next-Gen Video Conferencing
New tech for huddle rooms and conferencing
Global leader in the collaborative endpoint market, Konftel, recently announced new conferencing technology. The video collection now features the Konftel CC200 (pictured, above), a comprehensive offering that combines a state-of-the-art camera with an integral video codec and collaboration support for Webex, Teams, and Zoom.
The Konftel 70 speakerphone will be implemented into exciting video packages for both mid-sized and huddle meeting rooms. The solution is designed for a world where corporate culture is in a period of rapid transition, and this is translating into additional meetings with fewer participants. The smaller meeting rooms in the workplace need to be better equipped for video conferencing solutions. Annual growth of 38% is forecast for the segment in the next few years.
Supporting Demands for New Meeting Rooms
According to Global Sales Director for Konftel, Tommy Edlund, the company is already seeing strong market demand in relation to the USB video kit for meeting rooms of various sizes. That solution was launched back in 2018. This new offering addresses the major group of customers calling for an all-in-one solution for video conferencing, without having to rely on a user laptop or room PC.
The market for dedicated video conferencing tools is expected to grow to twice the size of the market for conference cams with USB connectivity by 2023, according to Konftel. The new CC200 is the first model in the company’s new product category of collaboration cameras. The all-in-one device supports both H.323 and SIP and works with all standards-based video systems. At the same time, it can be used directly with collaboration tools like Zoom, Webex, and Teams.
According to Tobjorn Kalsson, the Product Manager at Konftel, it only takes a few minutes to install a Konftel CC200, and there’s no need for running new cables in the room. Once the solution is up-and-running, users can instantly rely on stable audio and video, since the dedicated solution is not reliant on the quality of the PC to function.
Complimenting the Konftel Portfolio
The Konftel 70 speakerphone complements the company’s portfolio of Bluetooth and USB products, offering performance, simplicity, and design that helps it to stand out from the competition. Karlsson noted that Konftel sees the product as a key component of its video package solutions, along with the company’s conference cams and OCC hub.
Konftel believes that there’s no reason to compromise on audio and sound performance with a speakerphone, just because you’re solution uses a USB connection. The CC200 includes features like a 4K video sensor, two channels for content sharing and camera, four built-in microphones, and optimisation for sound through the Konftel OmniSound functions. The user interface includes a remote control, web interface, touchscreen, and more.
Both the Konftel CC200 and the Konftel 70 will be launched at a price that is designed to appeal to both end-customers and the sales channel, according to the Global Sales Director, Tommy Edlund.
