Following the recent announcement of availability of the Bose Videobar VB1 all-in-one USB conferencing device, Bose Professional is now partnering with Barco to offer a complete audiovisual meeting solution.
Bose Pro states that as people adapt to working both in the office and remote, it’s the hybrid office and meeting rooms that enable continued collaboration while maintaining human connections. Conferencing keeps work moving, and the Videobar VB1 can now be combined with any Barco ClickShare Conference device to get meetings up quickly and running smoothly with premium audio and video.
The Videobar VB1 is ClickShare Certified, ensuring interoperability with Barco technology. Barco leads in wireless technology, so pairing ClickShare Conference with the Videobar VB1 significantly reduces the need for wired components in conferencing spaces. This declutters work areas and simplifies the act of joining meetings to a single button.
“The philosophy of Bose Work is to provide the conferencing and collaboration solutions people need, regardless of where and how they work,” states Martin Bodley, director and global head, Bose Work at Bose.
“Barco’s expertise in wireless conferencing solutions provides the capabilities needed for a full-room solution and complements the VB1’s capabilities. This alliance creates a solution that reduces wires, saves space and delivers a premium meeting experience with a simple button.”
For an improved audio experience, the Bose Videobar VB1 uses six beam-steering microphones that actively focus on voices in the room and reject noise. The Bose-proprietary transducers reproduce accurate audio from multimedia presentations; it can play Bluetooth audio and it ensure voices sound natural and clear.
The 4K ultraHD camera with autoframing delivers crystal-clear video, so remote participants can see presenters, whiteboards and other in-room objects. Its single-cable USB connectivity means there’s no need for separate audio and video cables at the table, reducing clutter, and it can be mounted to suit the space using the included table stand or wall-mount kit.
