Yamaha today announced its commitment to the unified communications (UC) market with the development of a dedicated UC department. Leveraging the expertise of Revolabs, a subsidiary of Yamaha that will be part of the new department, Yamaha will focus on solutions that enhance communication and continue to develop products that help organizations reach their business goals.
Yamaha acquired Revolabs in 2014, broadening Yamaha’s portfolio, knowledge of and entrance into the UC market. Revolabs is well-known in the industry for its high-quality audio and conferencing solutions and excellent technology integration with leading UC service providers and software leaders, including Microsoft, Google, Cisco and Zoom.
Revolabs will continue to design, produce, and sell UC conferencing products under the Yamaha brand. New products will combine the strength of both companies in their definition, design, and production to address the projected widening product space in business communications across all vertical market segments. By fusing their technology and expertise, Yamaha and Revolabs will provide cross-solution support that will address the growing range of business communication applications.
The recently announced Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for Huddle Rooms is the first jointly engineered UC product from the two companies. It couples Revolabs’ microphone expertise with Yamaha’s audio expertise and strict quality control. Alongside incredible audio, the CS-700 incorporates a wide-angle HD camera that ensures meeting participants can see facial expressions and body language that are vital to successful, productive meetings. This solution, the first to include video technology from Yamaha, provides users with comprehensive, high-quality voice, audio, and video that eliminates any operational challenges and creates more productive, intuitive collaboration experiences within huddle spaces.
