Yamaha Adds Wireless Mic Extension to the CS-700 Video Sound Bar

Yamaha Unified Communications announced today a new wireless extension microphone for the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms.

The new XW-CS-700 wireless extension mic uses a proprietary connection between the CS-700 connector and an HD Dual microphone receiver, which allows for a greater distance between the CS-700 unit and the microphone. A second wireless microphone is also available. The omni-directional wireless microphone includes a charger base and a rechargeable battery that delivers up to eight hours of talk time on full charge. The XW-CS-700 will begin shipping in June.

Designed for huddle rooms, the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System delivers the highest-quality audio, video and collaboration capabilities in a simple and smart wall-mounted unit that is easy to install and deploy. It features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for perfectly captured conversation, four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility and a wide-angle HD camera for the far-end participants to see everyone in clear detail. Users can quickly connect to an organization’s chosen UC platform using a single USB, eliminating the frustrations and inefficiencies of operating disparate video, audio and collaboration components. In addition, the CS-700’s integrated network management system allows IT staff to deploy and remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.

All the specs on the CS-700 are here.
