Revolabs, together with its parent company Yamaha Corporation (UC Dept), demonstrated at the ISE 2018 their portfolio of market-leading unified communications (UC) solutions, with special focus on the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms and Yamaha’s YVC-1000MS Unified Communications Microphone and Speaker System.


Revolabs put great emphasis on solving the most perplexing UC challenges, namely streamlining workflows and installations — improving the quality of experience for users,” said Revolabs CEO Mick Kamihara. “Our UC customers have been asking for an easy-to-install, easy-to-use UC solution with excellent video and sound, and they have it in the CS-700,” he said. “ISE 2018 marks the first time we are showing the new CS-700 in Europe.”

The Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms is an all-in-one wall-mounted UC solution engineered to simplify installation and deployment while ensuring the highest quality audio and video in huddle and small meeting spaces. It is the first solution that optimizes audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a wall-mounted system, creating an intuitive meeting experience.

It boasts an adaptive beamforming microphone array, which guarantees that every word is perfectly captured and delivered to the far end; four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility; and a wide-angle HD camera that captures every meeting participant in clear detail. Through a single USB cable, it is ready to connect to an organization’s chosen UC platform, such as Skype for Business, GoToConference, Zoom, Cisco Spark, and many others. This plug-and-play approach allows users to get started quickly without wrestling with disparate audio, video, and collaboration components.

Also on show was the Yamaha YVC-1000MS, a USB speakerphone and Yamaha’s first product certified for Skype for Business. It is engineered with Yamaha’s superior audio technology and expertise to enhance the user experience in large meeting rooms, rooms with special table configurations, and even remote education classes or seminars within the Skype for Business application.

Available worldwide, the microphone and speaker system passed the stringent Skype for Business Certification Version 3 tests — Microsoft’s highest standards — providing natural, clear audio that defines the platform’s meeting experience. The intuitive design provides fast, simple connection via USB to a PC and/or smartphone with Bluetooth. Meanwhile, Yamaha’s adaptive echo cancellation and other unique sound-processing technologies facilitate stress-free conversation.
