ISE (Stand #1-F6), AMSTERDAM — HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today announced AMX Acendo Vibe, a new line of premium conferencing sound bars designed to maximize productivity and collaboration in huddle spaces and smaller meeting environments. With a powerful feature set that includes JBL speakers, far-field microphones, a wide-angle camera and a modern office design aesthetic, Acendo Vibe harnesses HARMAN’s deep history and expertise in audio technology to deliver outstanding performance that greatly exceeds traditional conferencing solutions, all in an intuitive and easy-to-install package.
“Modern enterprise organizations need to accomplish more in less space, and that includes their huddle and small meeting rooms,” said Shaun Robinson, Director, Corporate Enterprise Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “Acendo Vibe conferencing sound bars are perfect for companies that want outstanding audio performance in an attractive form factor perfect for small meeting spaces. With features like legendary JBL sound, a far-field microphone array with integrated acoustic echo cancellation, a 120-degree field-of-view camera that captures the entire room, and display automation, Acendo Vibe delivers an exceptional audiovisual experience for the modern conference room.”
Featuring an industrial design that aligns with the latest interior design trends of the modern office and a comprehensive feature set, Acendo Vibe is the ideal audio/video solution for small meeting spaces. Unlike other solutions that are comprised of several individual components that need to be separately installed and integrated, Acendo Vibe is an all-in-one solution that requires no programming or installation of additional equipment. Acendo Vibe comes in three colors and features softened materials and finishes to augment the interior design of the modern office environment.
Acendo Vibe 5100 and 2100 series models incorporate advanced JBL technologies, including far-field microphones and integrated AEC to ensure everyone in the room can be heard clearly. USB and Bluetooth connectivity streamlines BYOD (bring your own device) conference applications by allowing users to easily connect laptops, phones and tablets. Dedicated audio inputs and outputs allow users to integrate Acendo Vibe with other AV systems, such as assistive listening systems and more.
Acendo Vibe 5100 Series models include a 120-degree field-of-view (FoV) camera that allows everyone in the room to be seen, including individuals sitting close to the display. The 5100 Series also includes HDMI connections that enable users to route video to the display, and automatically turn the display on when a laptop is connected. In addition, when paired with the new Acendo Core meeting room system, the Vibe 5100 series can also provide visual room availability and end-of-meeting alerts to room participants to ensure effective meeting wrap up and help organizations optimize space utilization.
The Acendo huddle space solution, consisting of Acendo Core and Acendo Vibe, deliver the industry’s most cost-effective and best performing collaboration and conferencing solution designed for the needs of today’s modern office environment.
