Revolabs has changed the way many companies think about audioconferencing over the past few years. For a technology that’s good when the gear is expensive and often horrendous when the gear is mediocre, Revolabs forged a middle path with easy-to-use, rechargeable personal lipstick-shaped mics, sold in relatively affordable packages with receivers that integrate well with most videoconferencing systems. These systems are designed for custom installation into racks by professional AV contractors.
This year at InfoComm, Revolabs introduces a product that fits the reality of most conference rooms – not the CEO’s setup, but the handful of other rooms that get used every day by middle management. Many of these rooms contain plug-and-play videoconferencing codecs that can be installed by any IT guy or facilities manager. With that in mind Revolabs now offers the Fusion system, an eight- or four-microphone wireless audioconferencing system that’s not intended for custom installation. It’s also not networkable with AMX or Crestron control systems. Instead, it’s plug-and-play.
Via a videocard input, the Fusion base station hooks up easily to a videoconference codec. A telephone system input is another option for audioconference-only rooms. For eight microphones, a recharging tray, and a receiver, it’s $6,995.
