AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC) (TASE: AUDC), a leading vendor of advanced communications software, products and productivity solutions for the digital workplace, today announced a number of enhancements to its Room Experience (RX) suite of meeting room solutions for Microsoft Teams environments. As today’s business meetings transition from primarily office-based staff to a mix of smaller groups in the office and increasing numbers of remote workers, the AudioCodes RX suite is evolving to deliver a high-quality, immersive experience for all participants. AudioCodes’ latest enhancements relate to the RXV80 audio/video bar, the Meeting Insights meeting productivity tool and a new suite of Microsoft Teams Room video solution bundles for medium and large meeting rooms.
The RXV80 audio/video bar delivers high quality video conferencing capabilities for small and medium meeting rooms. It is currently under certification with Microsoft and is planned for general availability in Q4 2020.
AudioCodes announced a number of enhancements to the RXV80 audio/video bar for Teams meeting experience:
- Bluetooth remote controller (RXV80RC) with illuminated Teams button, illuminated mute button and other function keys for simple control and use
- Simple deployment with minimal cables, positioned above or below the TV screen, and can be used with wired or wireless networks
- Support for features such as click-to-join and proximity join
AudioCodes will expand the RX suite with the RXV100-B video solution bundles for Microsoft Teams Rooms. The RXV100-B bundles include the Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 – and in future the Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub – as the video conference control device and are designed to provide powerful and flexible video conferencing capabilities for medium and large meeting rooms. AudioCodes will provide a range of RXV100-B Microsoft Teams Rooms solution bundles to enable customers to select the optimal set of devices for their particular needs.
