announces that IBM has validated both the ClearOne CHAT® 150 group speakerphone and CHAT 50 personal speakerphone assuring interoperability with Sametime Unified Telephony, IBM's Unified Communications platform. The speakerphones, which connect via USB to a PC, VoIP softphone, and other devices, instantly provide Sametime users with hands-free voice communication for telephony, web, and video conferencing applications.
The CHAT 150 and CHAT 50 are advanced, business-grade speakerphones. Both incorporate HDConference, a suite of ClearOne audio technologies to maximize clarity, eliminate echo, suppress ambient noise, and optimize full-duplex performance so that participating parties can talk and listen at the same time and hear clearly without voices cutting in and out. For convenience, both models are designed with top-mounted volume level and mute buttons.
