Konftel at the ISE
Conference phones for audio and video solutions
Konftel will exhibit along with Vitec Distribution at the 8th Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) tradeshow in Amsterdam from January 31 to February 2 (Hall 12, Booth B80). The ISE is one of Europe’s leading tradeshows for audiovisual (AV) technologies. Some 750 exhibitors provide over 34,000 visitors with opportunities to explore the very latest AV technologies. Konftel will present its complete portfolio of conference phones, including the Konftel 300 series with the Konftel 300, Konftel 300W, Konftel 300IP and Konftel 300M. Together with Vitec, Konftel will demonstrate how conference phones can be integrated into video conferencing and telepresence solutions. For twelve years now, Konftel and Vitec have cooperated successfully in the growing European market for conference solutions.

Conference phones for all applications
Konftel’s exhibition presentation will focus on products in the Konftel 300 series with OmniSound® 2.0 technology. OmniSound® ensures natural sound and voice quality using omnidirectional microphones, full duplex and multiple speakers. The products in the Konftel 300 series offer the right solution for any requirement. The Konftel 300 has connections for analog lines, USB and mobile phones. The Konftel 300W supports DECT systems and has a rechargeable battery for up to 60 hours of talk time. The Konftel 300IP supports up to four simultaneous SIP connections. The Konftel 300M has a SIM card slot to allow direct calls with mobile radio networks. All of the phones in the Konftel 300 series use easy menu navigation and support call recording with an SD card.
 
Integration with video and telepresence systems
“Together with Vitec, we will use ISE as an opportunity to demonstrate how conference phones in the Konftel 300 series can be integrated with video conferencing and telepresence systems”, said Ralf Kalker, Sales Director for Germany, Austria and Switzerland at Konftel. “Konftel products are used with solutions from various companies including Vidyo and Skype as well as VideoMeet, the video conferencing service from Deutsche Telekom. In cooperation with Vitec, we provide combined solutions that are easy to integrate into communications infrastructures.” Konftel has worked successfully with Vitec in the European market for twelve years now. Vitec is a leading specialist distributor for solutions and products in the areas of video conferencing, audio conferencing, presentations, security technology and telecommunications. As a value added distributor, Vitec supports specialised dealers and systems houses as they work to provide their customers with customised audio and video conferencing solutions.

Save time and money
More and more companies are using conference phones. "The telephone represents a fast and easy way to exchange information, which boosts the efficiency of business processes”, added Ralf Kalker. “Direct dialog allows conference participants to quickly make relevant decisions and advance their projects in a tightly focused manner. This saves time and money since less business travel is needed. Reduced travel in turn contributes to a better work-life balance for employees and protects the environment too.”
