SPEAKERPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS

Postby bspittle » Wed Sep 14, 2016 7:52 pm

We are looking for a great audio solution for our large high council room (seats 15+). Would like any recommendations for a "commercial quality" system along the lines of what PolyCom offers. This link (https://www.lds.org/help/support/pvc-equipment?lang=eng) guides users to ClearOne devices. Thoughts? Ideally, the device would double as a regular speakerphone using our regular phone line, but also be able to connect to a laptop or PC using a USB connection. Thanks.

If you're feeling really ambitious, you could go with the full immersive equipment! :)

A small note of caution. no one knows when yet, but meetinghouses will someday move from POTS lines to VOIP. Again I don't think anyone when, but, it would be sad if you'd recently invested heavily in a POTS speaker phone that was not compatible with VOIP.

Thanks. We're definitely getting something that is VOIP compatible - most of our calls use PVC, Skype or ZOOM as it is.
