The Sennheiser SDW 5000 wireless DECT headset series has been created specifically for mobile, collaborative workplaces. It features Super Wideband Audio, a new sound standard for headset communication, that delivers richer, more natural sound and a two-microphone noise-cancelling system that helps to filter out background noise. A built-in motion sensor enables automatic control of calls, such as answering a call simply by picking up the headset from the desk. The headset offers a choice of three wearing styles (ear hook, headband and neckband), while its sleek base station offers connectivity for softphone/PC, desk phone and mobile devices.
Affordable video conferencing
Lifesize Dash is an affordable way for businesses to get started with video collaboration. The software-based meeting solution uses WebRTC technology to run video, audio and web meetings on inexpensive Chromebox devices, ideal for huddle rooms. Lifesize Dash offers easy-to-use meeting controls, centralised management and automatic updates, and works with a variety of approved USB cameras and audio devices.
4G Assure from BT is a business-grade broadband product that switches automatically to 4G should the fixed broadband service be interrupted. Combining a mobile broadband dongle with BT’s existing Business Smart Hub, it gives small businesses the reassurance that they can continue to work as normal even if the fixed broadband connection is lost. The hub will automatically switch back to fixed broadband when the line becomes stable.
Filter unwanted sounds
Nureva has added intelligent sound targeting (IST) technology to the Microphone Mist platform that powers its HDL300 and Dual HDL300 audio conferencing systems. IST enables these systems to identify and neutralise persistent undesirable noises that can disrupt audio conferences, such as the sound of air conditioning. Instead of attempting to suppress such sounds completely, it uses intelligent sound identification to mitigate their negative impact.
Exertis adds Epson
Exertis resellers now have access to Epson projectors from Exertis Medium, its Pro AV division. Ian Aitken, Exertis Medium Director, said: “Not only will our resellers have access to the Epson Pro Display laser product portfolio but also support from our professional services and technical teams, who can provide pre and post-sales support including white label installation.”
Scalable storage solution
As police departments make more use of body-worn video (BWV) technology and dash cams, they are having to manage the high cost and complexity of storing video surveillance footage. To help meet these challenges, StorageCraft has introduced StorageCraft for Law Enforcement, a highly scalable storage solution that is designed to be easy to manage and replicate. An entry-level configuration with 24×7 support costs less than £15k, including 96TB of storage. Multi-site replication means that in the event of failure, recovery can be achieved in minutes.
Best of both worlds
Maxwell C from Gigaset combines the quality and features of a desk phone, including a corded handset, with the flexibility of a DECT phone. Offering a wireless connection to any Gigaset single cell or multicell DECT system, it can be placed anywhere in the office and comes with HD audio, a 2.8in TFT display and eight programmable direct dial keys.
World first for MMD
The Philips 436M6VBPAB from brand license partner MMD has become the first officially certified DisplayHDR 1000 display. This new specification is claimed to deliver a more immersive visual experience, thanks to striking brightness, deeper contrast and vibrant colours.
Wireless content sharing
Lifesize Share allows teams to present content during meetings without the hassle of having to find the right cables or dongle. The presenter just visits the customised URL via the web browser on their laptop, tablet or smartphone and selects the relevant meeting room. Lifesize Share detects the device and allows the user to present an entire screen, a specific application or file, or stream video and audio on the meeting room monitor.
