How would the ClearOne MAX IP look in your meeting room?
With its innovative, hexagon-shaped, daisy-chainable design, the ClearOne MAX IP is a truly unique conferencing phone that, when connected to other units of the same model, can be used in not just one but several rooms around the office for complete audio coverage during a conference call. Efficient in structure and featuring a very simple yet highly effective and completely user-friendly dial pad and interface that can be utilised with very little (if any) training, the ClearOne MAX IP would be a valuable asset to almost any business.
What can it do?
Thanks to an intelligent Distributed Echo Cancellation & Noise Cancelling feature, the ClearOne MAX IP provides a world-class audio experience during every call and ensures that the listener receives all information sent through the microphone with absolute clarity. As well as this, the automatic level controls guarantee that the natural tone of the human voice is carried across to the recipient free from any unwanted and distracting background noises or echoes.
Moreover, with 360-degree microphone coverage and a first-mic priority system that intelligently activates only the microphone closest to the person speaking, the ClearOne MAX IP successfully prevents cross talk contamination and ensures that the listening party is easily able to differentiate between speakers during every call.
Another amazing feature that is truly unique to the ClearOne MAX IP is its expandable daisy-chainable design that allows users to connect as many as four complete phones to cover larger spaces during bigger meetings. By doing this, the MAX IP offers a fully flexible solution the gives businesses the opportunity to easily increase their conference call capacity and provides long lasting support for a company as it builds and grows.
From an administrative perspective, the ClearOne MAX IP is highly compatible with popular IP-PBX platforms, making it incredibly easy to integrate into a business’s infrastructure with very little time or cost needed. As well as this, the machine also possesses a built in three way conference bridge and SRTP encryption to deliver secured voice communication over the company network.
What do we like the most?
Though we were impressed by many of the features present on the ClearOne MAX IP, the thing that really stood out to us the most was the unique and highly innovative expandable design that truly sets it apart from its competitors. With this feature, business are given much more flexibility towards conference calling and are able to easily expand the number of people involved in the call by simply connecting the machines together. This way, the ClearOne MAX IP offers great support for future growth and gives a much greater return on investment for businesses that can continue using these phones for conference calling for as long as they wish.
What do we think?
For companies looking for a solution that offers a high quality audio experience, that drastically improves productivity and ensures calls are secure and stable and can be easily integrated into the infrastructure with minimal effort, the ClearOne MAX IP is the perfect choice and we strongly recommend investing in this product.
