Yamaha UC Adds Barco to Growing List of Strategic Partners

Yamaha Unified Communications (UC) has added Barco to its Strategic Partner Program to bring high-quality conferencing to even the most demanding spaces through the finest combination of solutions and API flexibilities. As a strategic partner, customers can be assured that Yamaha’s YVC-200 Portable USB & Bluetooth Speakerphone, YVC-330 USB & Bluetooth Speakerphone, and YVC-1000 Mic and Speaker System are tested and certified to combine effortlessly with Barco ClickShare Wireless Conference for a seamless Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) room experience.

“The best digital collaboration tools are fluid and adaptable, bridging the gap between users so they can connect from anywhere and with any device. Yamaha UC’s growing list of partnerships ensures collaboration across all the major communication platforms is simple and effective,” said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha UC. “Barco’s wireless conferencing solutions deliver a streamlined experience that brings teams together anywhere in the world. With this partnership, users can choose the solution they need, plug it in, and join the meeting with no fuss and audio that sounds as good as face to face.”

No matter which Yamaha YVC Series speakerphones users choose, they will be able to leverage Yamaha UC’s innovative sound technologies that deliver full, clear audio for smooth and stress-free conversations. Barco’s ClickShare Wireless Conference range of products work seamlessly with these conferencing solutions as well as the user’s display and camera setup without the hassle of physically connecting devices using cables and adapters. Both Yamaha UC solutions and Barco ClickShare operate with all current UC platforms.

“Our partnership with Yamaha brings customers unrivaled audio quality and unique simplicity in hybrid meetings,” said Dave Fitzgerald, vice president, Global Alliances at Barco. “Our easy-to-use, agnostic, wireless conferencing solution was tested and confirmed to work seamlessly with the best-in-class audio solutions from Yamaha. Together, these solutions create an engaging meeting experience for in-room and remote participants that is just as natural as any face-to-face meeting.”

Yamaha UC and Barco ClickShare Conferencing o¬ffer device configurations to suit a customer’s room size, group size, and collaboration needs. For small meeting rooms with up to four people, the YVC-200 and ClickShare CX-20 enable natural and reliable communication. Meeting rooms with four to 10 people will benefit from the YVC-330, which features Yamaha’s innovative SoundCap technology to eliminate background noise, and ClickShare CX-30 with touch back, annotation, and blackboarding capabilities. In addition, two YVC-330s can be daisy-chained to cover up to 16 participants. Large meeting spaces where up to 40 people can gather will require the YVC-1000’s separate microphone and speaker system along with ClickShare CX-50’s superior AV quality driving multi-content sharing.
