Siemens Enterprise Communications says its brand-new product, AudioPresence HD, ensures that all of the companys OpenStage IP phone users can experience the highest quality audio for voice calls and audio conferences, at no additional cost for the functionality.
The OpenStage range provides HD voice capabilities across the entire line of OpenStage IP phones, including the newly announced OpenStage 5 entry-level phone. With the introduction of AudioPresence HD, the OpenStage portfolio extends its legacy of reliability and quality acoustic engineering, Siemens said.
Siemens Enterprise Communications efforts to extend HD voice across its entire IP portfolio with AudioPresence increase the overall value of its already high quality proven IP desktop phones, allowing customers to enjoy a natural voice experience with higher voice quality, superior clarity, better intelligibility and a richer sound experience,” said Mohamed Alaa Saayed, senior industry analyst with Frost & Sullivan. The overall result is higher degrees of customer satisfaction and increased productivity.”
AudioPresence HD leverages the standards-based G.722 high-definition audio codec, best-in-class speaker, microphone and acoustic components, and advanced noise rejection and echo cancellation in all OpenStage IP phones. Also, with the upcoming release of OpenScape UC Version 6, multi-party audio conferences will support AudioPresence HD as well as an industry unique Automatic Gain Control feature which normalizes the distraction and frustration of loud and soft volume levels from various conference participants.
We continue to believe in the importance of providing all of our customers with an excellent quality user experience, and superior audio quality does not have to be an expensive solution that is only available in high-end or executive phones,” said Mark Straton, SVP of Global Solutions Marketing at Siemens Enterprise Communications. With AudioPresence HD available in every OpenStage IP model, it is our way of ensuring that regardless of how much a customer wants to invest in a phone, they are getting the best audio quality available.”
