Conference phones are used to initiate and conduct conference calls, which enable multiple callers to listen and/or talk on the same call. In a conference call, the host participants typically run the call with a conference phone, while remote participants dial in to a number that connects them to a conference bridge that links the various telephone lines together. Conference calls are frequently used for business meetings and corporate earnings reports, and are also commonly paired with Web conferences for online presentations and sharing documents.
Analog conference phone
The standard for everyday conferencing in small to midsize conference rooms SoundStation2 is the ideal conference phone for small to midsize conference rooms that seat up to 10 participants. Polycom Acoustic Clarity™ technology delivers exceptional performance and voice quality, making your conference calls clearer and more productive. Industry-leading full duplex technology provides natural, simultaneous two-way conversation without clipping or drop-outs that are common in traditional speakerphones. Users can speak in a normal voice and be heard clearly up to ten feet away – making every call a more productive call. Dynamic Noise Reduction (DNR) actively removes background noise such as projectors and ventilation systems, while 360-degree microphone coverage with intelligent mixing highlights the person speaking, not the distracting ambient sounds, for crystal clear conferencing. It also features technology that resists interference from mobile phones and other wireless devices, delivering clear communications with no distractions.
SoundStation2 provides users with advanced features, enabling conference calls that are more flexible and productive than ever before. The “EX” model supports up to two Expansion Microphones, ensuring that the microphone pickup reaches to all corners of a medium-sized conference room. The 2.5mm Applications Port allows you to connect the SoundStation2 to a mobile phone for conference calls from locations without analog phone lines, or to a computer for Internet calling*. A large backlit display offers easily visible call information and telephone functions. It connects to any standard analog telephone line, making it very easy to set up. With traditional telephone features like redial, mute, transfer, and hold, you have a conference phone that’s also familiar and easy to use.
