On a press launch yesterday, Jabra introduced the Jabra Speak 410 speakerphone. It is their first foray into the enterprise speakerphone market dominated Cisco, Avaya, and Polycom and the Philippines is the first country in Southeast Asia to have this introduced.
The Jabra Speak 410 is a portable speakerphone with touch controls meant to be used for VoIP telephony for the mobile businessperson. It connects to your laptop (or desktop) via USB and you get to enjoy full duplex and wideband sound coming from this speaker. It also has a built-in echo cancelation with no sound distortion, even at maximum volume. They demoed it and the sound quality was impressive especially for voice calls. You can set it on your desk and walk around your room while you talk with the other party. There’s also a 3.5mm headset port if you need to attach a headset for privacy. You can also use it for leisure as it is far superior than your laptop’s built-in speaker for your music or movies.
This enterprise speakerphone is optimized for Microsoft’s new Office Communicator, the Microsoft Lync. It is also compatible with leading Unified Communications solutions from Cisco, Avaya and Alcatel-Lucent. You can also use it for calling using your Skype or other instant messaging applications.
Measuring just 13 cm in diameter, the Jabra Speak 410 comes with a travel case that enhances portability. The integrated cable management allows for immediate and easy set up and storage. It has an SRP of USD159 or around Php6,500 to Php7,000 and is targeted for enterprise use.
