Audio Conferencing Unit


For a conference call that sounds like a face-to-face meeting, plug in the Audio Conferencing Unit.

Extend voice connectivity to conference rooms and offices with clarity and reliability. Simply plug it into any telephone jack – It includes full-duplex technology and a keypad to access all of the conferencing features available from your Norstar or Business Communications Manager system.


360-Degree Voice Coverage
Three highly sensitive microphones can pick up a voice from any point in a 10′ x 15′ room. The unit offers the best performance when people are three to six feet from the microphones. But remember: side comments can be picked up from as far away as 25 feet!

Digitally Tuned Speaker The unit tunes out echos and background noise and offers a crystal clear sound.

Full Duplex Technology
Voices can be picked up and heard simultaneously — even interruptions and overlapping dialogue. Conversations sound natural, with no clipped words and no time delays.
