Adobe connect, GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, Skype and similar VoIP services offer up plenty of features and convenience for remote meetings. If you have a computer or tablet, you have the ability to teleconference. But one aspect of the experience often comes up short: sound quality from your device's built-in speaker and microphone. Common complaints include:
These issues interrupt, slow, and add frustration to remote meetings. But all of these issues can be overcome with the IPEVO VX-1 Internet Conference Station, the perfect complement to your VoIP usage. With VX-1's superior voice capture and transmission, everyone can hear, and everyone can be heard.
VX-1 features a total of 5 built-in microphones to address any configuration of people around the device. The default microphone is the Omni Mic which receives sound evenly in a 360-degree range, making it ideal for capturing the voices of all participants positioned anywhere around VX-1. The difference you'll perceive between the Omni Mic and your computer's built-in microphone will be dramatic.
The Omni Mic has a an optimal pick-up range of 6.5 feet.
The maximum pick-up range is 13 feet.
VX-1 also features a Zone Enhanced Mode that uses directional microphones. This mode is designed for maximum reduction of unwanted environmental noise. In Zone Enhanced Mode, one of four unidirectional mics (Uni Mics) is active. Mics are easily selectable with the Zone Enhancement button. Uni Mics have a longer range and higher sensitivity than the Omni Mic, and they primarily receive sound coming from one direction. In fact, they're specifically tuned to exclude sound coming from other directions.
Each Unidirectional Mic has an optimal pick-up range of 10 feet.
The maximum pick-up range is 16 feet.
With its elegant and modern circular shape, VX-1 is an eye-catching addition to the office that can be placed anywhere on the desk or table. It looks and behaves like people expect it to, so there's never any confusion for guests using the station. And with VX-1, you don't need to return to the computer or hunt around in the VoIP application to change basic audio settings. The station features three frequently-used buttons as well as easy to understand status LEDs.
iDevices feature countless ways to communicate remotely, including free voice chat apps as well as good old-fashioned number dialing on iPhone. Whenever your group has a remote meeting, don't crowd around the iPad or awkwardly pass the iPhone around. Simply connect your iDevice to VX-1 via the included 3.5mm audio cable. Plug the cable into your iDevice's audio jack and you have an instant, professional-level conference station.
With VX-1, there's no need to hassle with installing drivers or extra software. Simply plug VX-1 into your PC, Mac or iDevice (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) and launch your preferred conferencing software. Or, if using the iPhone, just place a call like you usually do. VX-1 automatically becomes your default speaker and microphone.
