Conference Phone – PolyCom Sound Station 2
Why settle for an ordinary, handset speakerphone when you can use a SoundStation? Unlike other speakerphones that only allow one person to talk at a time, Polycom‘s breakthrough Acoustic Clarity Technology lets you have natural, free-flowing two-way discussions. Conference calls are not only more productive, but also much more efficient.
While on a conference call, have you ever tried to interrupt someone who was making a point you did not agree with? Well, SoundStation enables you to speak at the same time as someone else so you don’t have to wait for him or her to stop talking before you can break in. For basic conferencing in small and medium-size conference rooms, choose SoundStation.
Why Conference Phone?
This conference phone is ideal for small- to medium-sized rooms containing one to five people. With conventional, half-duplex speakerphones, only one party can speak at a time without clipping off the other party’s voice. Echoes and howling can further disrupt your conversations and lead to costly misunderstandings. But because of the SoundStation’s full-duplex operation, you can speak naturally and hear both sides of the conversation clearly.
The SoundStation ensures high sound quality with three microphones and a digitally tuned speaker for 360-degree coverage of an office or conference room. Polycom’s Acoustic Clarity Technology uses digital signal processing with analog telephone lines to eliminate the clipping and fading that plague most speakerphones. This technology improves speaker and microphone performance over the full bandwidth of the telephone line–300 to 3,500 Hz. Other features that boost sound quality include dynamic telephone-line and dynamic room-echo cancellation, signal depression, microphone switching, and digital filtering of voice signals.
The SoundStation has a full alphanumeric keypad for dialing, with a mute button and a flash key to access functions like hold, conference, and transfer. There is also a jack to plug in a tape recorder. Dual-colored LEDs signal phone status, and other controls include a ringer volume, speaker volume, and microphone mute.
The SoundStation works with any analog phone system or with an adapter (sold separately) for digital phone systems. It comes with a wall module, 25-foot power cable, 7-foot telephone cable, and a one-year warranty.
