Parrot Conference Bluetooth speakerphone

Gadgets, Mobile phones

Parrot is introducing some new technology to the boardroom with the Bluetooth-friendly Conference wireless speakerphone, with Skype capability.

The Conference speakerphone can store up to 6,000 contacts, which can be loaded wirelessly via Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, PDAs, and laptops. And once loaded, you can access them and all the other menus and settings through a large, bright active-matrix TFT colour display. It works with Parrot’s proprietary advanced digital signal processing technology with full duplexing for clear, echo-free conversations in rooms of any size. Three highly sensitive microphones provide a complete 360-degree voice pickup and a 5W speaker means all participants should be heard clearly.

It’s powered by three rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, so can be easily moved from office to conference room whenever the need arises. The batteries provide 10 hours of continuous talk-time, and fully recharge in five hours. It can also be paired with up to 50 phones at any one time and has an integrated Skype interface, so is ready to use with the service out of the box.

The Conference will retail from £148.
