Yamaha commits to unified communications with dedicated UC department

Yamaha has announced its commitment to the unified communications and collaboration market with the development of a dedicated UC department. Leveraging the expertise of Revolabs, a subsidiary of Yamaha that will be part of the new department, Yamaha will focus on solutions that enhance communication and continue to develop products that help organisations reach their business goals.

Yamaha acquired Revolabs in 2014, broadening Yamaha's portfolio and knowledge of UC as it entered the market. Revolabs is well-known in the industry for its audio and conferencing solutions and technology integration with leading UC service providers and software leaders, including Microsoft, Google, Cisco and Zoom.

The recently announced Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for Huddle Rooms is the first jointly engineered UC product from the two companies. It couples Revolabs' microphone expertise with Yamaha's audio expertise. The CS-700 incorporates a wide-angle HD camera that ensures meeting participants can see facial expressions and body language as well.

Hirofumi (Hogan) Osawa, executive officer, senior general manager of audio business division and general manager of UC Department, Yamaha, said: “Yamaha has more than 10 years of experience within the UC industry from working with our enterprise customers in Japan. Our latest organisational change and solutions developments are natural steps toward cultivating those relationships worldwide. With music and sound technology as one of our core strengths and an investment in significant resources across the company, we're well-positioned to expand our presence in this global market segment with our current and future product suite."
