Plantronics has unveiled four new UC (unified communication) audio devices to help people effectively communicate and collaborate, regardless of workplace or location.
These new offerings are comprised of the Blackwire 725 (£139), the company’s first UC stereo headset with Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) for those people who want to stay focused in noisy office environments; the Voyager Edge UC (pictured – £119), the latest product in the Voyager family of Bluetooth headsets aimed at workers constantly on the road; the Calisto 610 (£79), a portable speakerphone for instant anywhere conferencing, and the Clarity 340 (£119), designed for those who face vision, hearing, or dexterity challenges. Now, workers in the office and on the road have tools they can use to control outside noise that allow them to hear as well as be heard clearly.
“There’s been increasing emphasis on the importance of a reliable, high-quality, seamless user experience when communicating and collaborating today, and rightly so,” said Rich Costello, senior research analyst, unified communications, IDC. “The new Plantronics offerings not only address these important requirements, but also address the surrounding noise factor on both sides of the call.”
“Everywhere is the new workplace. We know office noise is increasingly becoming a concern due to more open working environments that promote collaboration, but workplace noise isn’t just a problem for those in the office,” said Richard Rogers, head of E&A B2B marketing, Plantronics. “You can’t always control your environment and you certainly can’t control your caller’s environment, so we help ensure workers have solutions they need to block out the noise, allowing them to have a high-quality communication experience wherever their workplace is.”
The Voyager Edge UC, Blackwire 725, and Calisto 610 are immediately available. The Clarity 340 will be available in March.
