IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phoenix Audio Technologies announced today that their advanced IP conference phone, The Spider, is now available for purchase in the U.S. The Spider was unveiled this past March during the Enterprise Connect convention in Orlando. Having already been named Best New Audio Conferencing Product by rAVe Publications for this year’s Best of InfoComm Awards, The Spider is up for another distinguished title thanks to AV Magazine. The feature-rich Spider conference phone is a finalist for Audio Product of the Year. Winners will be announced at The 16th Annual AV Awards, which will be held September 26th at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane in London. “We are honored to be recognized by such highly regarded publications in the AV industry,” says Jonathan Boaz, Phoenix Audio’s VP of Sales & Marketing. “We are very excited to release our most innovative product yet. Its dual connectivity, intuitive user interface and daisy chaining capabilities make it the best audio solution for the modern day conference room.”
More on the Spider
The Spider can communicate through USB interface with any computer under any operating system, in addition to its IP or Analog interface. This allows it to serve as both the IP conference phone and the soft video application speakerphone. Small in size (7” in diameter), the Spider covers a large conference room with pick-up range exceeding 20 feet, and offers unparalleled daisy chaining capabilities to up to 14 satellite units. If expanded coverage is required, the Quattro3 MT304-BLK (sold separately) is designed specifically to connect to The Spider for enhanced pick-up range in any size room.
Key features of the product include crystal clear audio performance and an intuitive user interface. The Spider utilizes an extremely powerful DSP and improved proprietary algorithms, including noise suppression, echo canceling, de-reverb, and beamforming with direction-finding. The Spider incorporates a one-of-a-kind interactive touch button panel and a large OLED display to provide an easy-to-use interface experience. Its voice tracking technique is enhanced through an under-the-grill set of LED that follow a person’s direction of speaking and displays the algorithm in action. The Spider will come to life and display only the needed functions depending on the specific scenario to provide a no-hassle audio solution for any conference room. Given these innovative elements, there is no question that The Spider provides the best performance level of all other conference phones on the market.
MSRP for The Spider IP (MT505) is $849.95 and the MSRP for The Spider PSTN (MT502) is $799.95. For more information, contact Phoenix Audio at 818.937.4774 or Spider@PhnxAudio.com.
