IBM has validated both the ClearOne CHAT 150 group speakerphone and CHAT 50 personal speakerphone assuring interoperability with Sametime Unified Telephony, IBMs Unified Communications platform. The speakerphones, which connect via USB to a PC, VoIP softphone and other devices, instantly provide Sametime users with hands-free voice communication for telephony, Web, and video conferencing applications.
The IBM validation immediately increases the appeal of our products to Sametime users, and we look forward to working with IBM and its partners to evangelize our Sametime Unified Communications interoperability to the SMB and large enterprise communities,” said Chris Wildfoerster, vice president of business development for ClearOne.
ClearOne says the CHAT 150 and CHAT 50 are advanced, business-grade speakerphones. Both incorporate HDConference, a suite of ClearOne audio technologies to maximize clarity, eliminate echo, suppress ambient noise, and optimize full-duplex performance so that participating parties can talk and listen at the same and hear clearly without voices cutting in and out. For convenience, both models are designed with top-mounted volume level and mute buttons.
