Konftel Launches Conference Phone of the Future

Conference phone vendor Konftel is launching the Konftel 300 which includes an upgraded version of their OmniSound audio technology now been enhanced to deliver high performance in large conference rooms.

“It has been our goal to create the world’s best conference phone,” says Konftel’s Managing Director, Peter Renkel.

The development of the Konftel 300 has been based on the results of detailed surveys asking users which features they would like to see in a conference phone.

“Surveys indicate that we will see an increase in the number of teleconferences in the future because of the time-saving, economic and environmental benefits they offer. However, we also know that many users place increasingly high demands on their conference phones,” says Peter Renkel.

As well as high quality audio, users have asked for an easier way to make multi-party calls – the Konftel 300’s conference guide provides the answer. The conference guide can store as many as 20 groups, taking the hassle out of setting up regular teleconferences, and it can be used when making single-party calls too.

The Konftel 300 can be connected to GSM and DECT telephones, as well as analogue lines, and to a computer via USB. A line selector makes it easy to switch between and combine connectivity methods.

Peter Renkel explains, “When we were developing the Konftel 300, we focused on the fact that the Internet and mobile phones have completely changed communications in the office”.

The Konftel 300 delivers powerful audio performance in large meeting rooms and auditoriums with its upgraded software and smart accessories. It is possible to add a wireless headset and expansion microphones that double the voice pickup range. These are practical accessories for participants at large, general meetings and also for people with impaired hearing. The Konftel 300 can also be connected to an existing PA system.

The phone supports SD memory cards, so meetings can be recorded and played back. The memory card can be moved to a computer for playing back, sending, or saving audio files.

Peter Renkel says, “We have made the Konftel 300 future-proof. As new features are developed, they will be available on our website for download.”
