Jabra launches SPEAK 810
Audio and communications technology specialist Jabra announces the launch of Jabra SPEAK 810, the latest in its successful SPEAK series. The Jabra SPEAK 810 is designed to eliminate the pain points of effective collaboration: technology challenges such as set-up issues, connectivity to platforms and poor sound quality, which prevent effective meeting productivity.
Bringing a plug and play, easy to use speakerphone experience with superior audio to large meeting and conference rooms for the first time, the Jabra SPEAK 810 complements the personal experience delivered by the smaller, portable SPEAK 410 and 510 products. With multiple connectivity options, the Jabra SPEAK 810 works with all types of smart devices and integrates seamlessly with all communication platforms eliminating the need for dial pad solutions and challenging the traditional hardware approach to conference calling.
Designed in response to today’s knowledge worker environment, the Jabra SPEAK 810 simplifies and enhances meeting time, addressing the challenges of effective collaboration and adoption of technology. It can turn any location into a productive conference room: enhanced with Bluetooth, an integrated USB cable to connect it to a PC, or 3.5mm jack for your tablet or smartphone, meetings are set to go in seconds.
Additional ease of use is delivered by integration with all communication platforms, removing the need for an IP end-point, and the USB charge-out port feature for charging tablets or mobile devices during calls.
“Microsoft continues its working partnership with Jabra to ensure that their solutions are fully compatible with Microsoft Skype for Business,” said Giovanni Mezgec, Microsoft GM of Skype for Business. “The Jabra SPEAK 810 is an excellent example of this collaboration.”
Today, a third of conference calls are delayed due to setup issues with connections and speaker phones, 15% of meeting time is spent on ‘getting started’, and one of the most common frustrations is poor sound quality.
The Jabra SPEAK 810 is an intelligent audio solution using Jabra’s heritage in office audio solutions as well as ear-related diagnostics and hearing healthcare technology. It facilitates conference calls in meeting rooms of up to 100 m2 with 15 people or more in one room, delivering crystal clear sound, without any unwanted background noise.
The plug and play speakerphone features powerful loudspeakers and unique market-first technology from Jabra called ZoomTalk, an intelligent directional microphone that focuses on sound from human voices, so you only hear what matters most. ZoomTalk is central to achieving productivity and flexibility as it makes meetings as clear as possible, filtering human voice from all ambient room noise, wherever the call is taking place.
The SPEAK 810 also maximizes business investment in Unified Communications (UC). As more organisations invest in UC as a way to enable collaboration and support the increasing trend for mobility, devices such as the SPEAK 810 enable businesses to maximize and fast track that investment. This is true whether they are starting their UC journey or have an established infrastructure.
Mr. Holger Reisinger, Head of Business Solutions, Jabra, comments: “Businesses are becoming more focused on creating working environments and cultures that better enable them to compete. As a result, office environments are changing and becoming more dynamic, demanding and technology-enabled. New ways of working are adding flexibility to working spaces, practices and hours. Yet productivity must also remain a priority for business success and for this reason so should enabling effective collaboration and concentration.”
Jabra has a strong legacy offering easy to use collaboration devices for today’s working environments and maintains significant share in the speakerphone market. Today the Jabra SPEAK series leads in the table-top speakerphone USB market a market that is set to see massive growth in coming years, according to market analysts. Jabra’s focus in this area has led to over 1 million devices in Jabra’s SPEAK-series being sold to date.
Mr. Mark Leigh, President Asia Pacific Japan of Jabra, said, “The success of the SPEAK series is testament to Jabra’s long standing expertise in audio solutions as well as its in-depth understanding of workplace challenges. Jabra understands and is committed to enhancing the role of audio in enabling collaboration and concentration, and enabling productive meetings wherever people are.”
