Distributed exclusively in Italy by Prase Media Technologies, Maxhub products for Unified Communication create cutting-edge interaction in all areas, from education to corporate, up to conference rooms.
Maxhub is characterised as a developer and provider of solutions, intelligent applications and, more generally, technologies to structure cutting-edge interaction and effective collaboration in the corporate environment and beyond. The decision by Prase Media Technologies to distribute the products of this interesting brand is inscribed in the desire to expand the range of cameras, speakerphones and conference bars for UC applications in the corporate and home office.
With Maxhub solutions, therefore, the possibility of setting up conference rooms and huddle rooms is growing quickly and efficiently, with professional-level solutions even for companies with a reduced budget. Let’s see two of the most interesting and popular systems in the Prase catalogue.
BM21: Bluetooth conference microphone with integrated speakers
Let’s start with a great classic: the Bluetooth microphone for conference applications with integrated speakers and AEC, a product that improves and simplifies the workflow in conference rooms, meeting the needs of teams that get together and that, especially today, often meet to collaborate in a ‘hybrid’ way, with some people in person and others connected remotely. Clarity and ease in capturing audio, in these cases, are essential.
Prase therefore proposes the BM21 microphone-speaker with AUX In / Out and Bluetooth dongle included and a six-element microphone array with 360 ° omnidirectional pattern. Reception is guaranteed up to five metres away, in compatible acoustic conditions, while the Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) and Noise Reduction features, obviously integrated, improve the overall quality of the audio, in accordance with the fact that during a meeting the most important thing is to hear well, while at the same time allowing speakers to express themselves at a natural level of voice, without having to shout. In fact, another fundamental feature of BM21 is the integrated speaker, which allows you to equip, from the audio point of view, an entire medium-sized room with a very small footprint product (its dimensions are 120 × 35 mm, weighing just 380 g) and with plug-and-play functionality.
As for connections, BM21 offers Bluetooth, analogue output and USB (audio in / out and charge, with battery life up to 8 hours.) The on-board buttons allow you to control calls, volume and, of course, the switching on and off of the product. The frequency response of the microphone is 100Hz – 15kHz, while that of the speaker covers the range 150Hz – 15kHz.
All the Power of Collaboration: UC S10
What can be added to quality audio to improve Collaboration? Simple: the images. Here then is Maxhub UC S10, a soundbar equipped with a 12 MP camera for high quality images that allow you to see every face, adding clarity to the meeting even for those connected from a distance. The connection to the system is guaranteed by integrated Android, while the particularly simple configuration and immediate operation eliminate the problems associated with the management of complex equipment, for which specialised technical figures would be needed. Maxhub products for UC are designed to allow everyone to organise an efficient meeting.
As for audio, UC S10 captures and reproduces speech with great clarity, even for those who are far from the device. The microphone, made up of six elements, has integrated noise reduction and echo cancellation, and offers a vocal pickup up to eight metres away. On the diffusion side, however, UC S10 has a powerful 8 W speakerphone, designed to easily reach all listeners. The very concept of Unified Collaboration, moreover, means that collaboration must take place with the least possible effort for the participants. This is why this product can be defined, to all effects, a “communication hub for meetings”: acting as a collector of audio and video, Maxhub UC S10 allows a quick and easy exchange of ideas, images and data. The wireless sharing of the screen and the parallel Wi-Fi network are the further touches of class of a product also characterised by a discreet design, designed to fit easily into any context.
Finally, a few words about the integrated camera, which combines precision optics with intelligent functions. The Auto Framing functionality is perfectly suited to both small meeting rooms and those of large size: in practice, the camera automatically frames who is speaking, helping to maintain the focus of the team and develop speech intelligibility. The other features of the camera are: 5X digital zoom, 120 ° viewing angle, 12 MP and the ability to store three different and convenient presets for framing and zooming.
