Collaboration endpoint specialist Konftel has launched a series of video kits optimized for in room PC-based systems to capture a wider choice of conferencing scenarios.
Konftel Attach is a range of five kits designed for Microsoft Teams Rooms, Zoom Rooms and more open-based solutions. The portfolio has been specifically adapted for in room systems such as from Lenovo and Dell.
Konftel Attach presents a line-up of highly capable conference cameras and speakerphones, accompanied by a long USB cable (up to 10 m) for optimal audio placement. The kits work with all in room PC variants, for meeting rooms of all sizes, from focus to extra large, (when additional expansion microphones are used).
Konftel Product Manager, Torbjörn Karlsson, says the kits complement the company’s Bring Your Own Meeting concept to ensure a comprehensive choice of hardware options.
“Whether users prefer to bring their own laptop to a meeting (with their own preferred app) or take advantage of a dedicated in room facility, where all the equipment is already in place, Konftel has dedicated solutions that bring each system to life,” he said.
He added: “A typical in room solution has a main computer, which is controlled via a touch panel or wireless keyboard and mouse, connected to a display screen. Users can ‘add more flavour’ by combining a high quality Konftel camera and audio with a long audio cable, that maximizes speakerphone placement.”
The Konftel Attach range comprises:
- Konftel C50800 Attach – for small to large rooms
- Konftel C20800 Attach – for small to large rooms
- Konftel C5070 Attach – for small to medium rooms
- Konftel C2070 Attach – for huddle to medium rooms
- Konftel C20Ego Attach – for focus to huddle rooms
More conferencing flavors
Director of Global Sales, Tommy Edlund, says Konftel Attach creates more customer choice and provides channel partners with the opportunity to capture additional market share.
“Bring Your Own Meeting and our simple One Cable Connection hub is our video heritage and remains extremely popular but we recognize it’s important to offer the widest possible choice of set-up options.
“The in-room sector is growing significantly and we expect the two distinct scenarios to eventually level off at around 50/50,” Edlund said. “The introduction of more conferencing ‘flavours’ represents a welcome expansion of our range and enables us to penetrate deeper into the market. It is already generating lots of interest and excitement.”
He concluded: “Konftel continues to innovate and move forward. All our products are Climate Neutral certified and we have some further new developments in the pipeline to help us remain at the forefront of the industry. More details will officially be announced soon.”
