In response to the strong demand for quality audio in meeting rooms of all sizes where professionals can meet and adhere to social distancing guidelines, EPOS unveiled the EXPAND 80 speakerphone series designed for medium to large- sized meeting rooms.
“The EXPAND 80 Series is the final touch to our range of high-end speaker phones now covering both small and large meeting rooms,” Theis Moerk Vice President of Product Management, Enterprise Solutions said in a statement. “As the latest addition, EXPAND 80 emphasizes our ambition to provide professionals with everything they need to maximize productivity and performance. The integration of Microsoft Teams is an essential part of making this happen, and will provide users with a single tool to truly focus on the task at hand.”
The EXPAND 80 Series presents a scalable Bluetooth® speakerphone for up to 16 in-room participants – designed to unite colleagues within and beyond meeting rooms across the world. Thanks to six adaptive, beamforming microphones, and DSP intelligently isolating the human voice from room reverb and ambient noise, EXPAND 80 ensures that every participant in the room will be heard, while colleagues out of the office will be closer to the conversation.
Additionally, with its powerful ultra-low distortion speaker in a unique patent pending suspended speaker box, EXPAND 80 fills the room with outstanding sound, and enables superior duplex performance that allows simultaneous speech and thus a natural conversation between participants.
For even larger meetings with up to 32 participants, users can add up to two expansion microphones – the EXPAND 80 Mic – enabling them to adapt to the demands of their business, while maintaining a professional and stylish conference table with smart cable management developed for optimal system function and ease of use.
The EXPAND 80 Series upgrades to further audio performance as professionals can connect easily via Bluetooth®, USB-C or NFC available. Additionally, multi-point connectivity, a simple user interface and one-touch access to a preferred Voice Assistant allow for dynamic conferences. The EXPAND 80 Series includes two versions: the UC optimized EXPAND 80, and the EXPAND 80T that is undergoing certification for Microsoft Teams to ensure an intuitive and streamlined experience with a dedicated button that launches the app in an instant.
The EXPAND 80 is available beginning in August 2020 with EXPAND 80 mic products becoming available in October 2020. For more information, visit eposaudio.com.
