"Meeting participants demand two things no matter where they're meeting: a seamless, intuitive experience and superior audio and video quality. As we continue to expand Yamaha's wide breadth of superior UC solutions, these requirements are at the core of our design," said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha Unified Communications. "At InfoComm 2019, attendees will see the future of flawless, intelligent collaboration with AI-powered video".

Jonas Rinde, Huddly CEO, comments: "Yamaha has a well-deserved reputation across the world for building high-quality audio products and their UC portfolio is no exception. Our partnership is a terrific opportunity for end customers to experience their industry-leading audio, now combined with the high-quality, wide-angle, AI-powered video Huddly is known for. We invite everyone to come and check out the Yamaha Collaboration Kit themselves at our booths."

The Yamaha Collaboration Kit (currently available only in North America), combined with Yamaha's Enterprise Sound Bar and Huddly IQ AI-power conference camera, it's perfectly tailored to deliver a high-quality video collaboration experience unlike anything else. The Yamaha's new ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar provides an immersive feeling with clear, dynamic, full-range speaker output for conference rooms. The sound bar's two built-in subwoofers and bass-reflex port deliver clear, dynamic, full-range sound in conjunction with two dome tweeters and two woofers. Its "conference mode" preset is specialized for installation in conference room spaces with enterprise-demaned functions for easy administration. The compact and elegant design with automatic sound optimization makes it ideal for various enterprise needs and designs, allowing for positioning to be mounted vertically or placed flat. The Yamaha ESB-1080 is available as a perfect sound solution for any enterprise room to provide or expand speaker output or part of a bundled solution with the Huddly IQ AI-power conference camera.

The Yamaha Collaboration Kit's camera provides 150-degree wide-angle 1080p video, an embedded mic array, automated AI features, and Huddly InSights analytics API. With the "Genius (News - Alert) Framing" feature, the camera can detect participants in its field of view and respond by automatically framing the view, removing the need to manually control.

The Yamaha Collaboration Kit is best matched to medium conference spaces for remote collaboration and presentation with simple connections to a laptop and monitor. Purchase is simple and consolidated, reliable support is unmatched.

The Yamaha Collaboration Kit will be exhibited in the Yamaha Unified Communication's booth #4961 and Huddly's booth #4087 at InfoComm 2019, June 12-14 at the Orange (News - Alert) County Convention Center.
