AUDIO AND VIDEO CONFERENCING EQUIPMENT
Speakerphones & conference microphones:
A speakerphone is a device that simultaneously uses a microphone and speaker to communicate without need for a headset.
When making calls, the sound is not always optimal. For example, the sound of your PC goes through the built-in screen speakers, which is inefficient. With the speakerphone, you have a dedicated sound device for your calls and/or music.
Plug&Play– the easy-use solution: Simply connect your speakerphone/microphone to your computer or smartphone to make calls (via Bluetooth, USB or jack depending on the model)

Audio conferencing & conference phones:
Audio conferencing allows several people in one room to hear and speak during a telephone conversation
You can use conference telephones in meeting rooms as well as individual offices. Their investment pays off thanks to the numerous in-person business meetings that can be avoided.
The number of participants determines the necessary size for your conference phone. For small meeting rooms (maximum 4 participants), opt for simple models. For larger rooms (20+ participants), choose a more sophisticated model that has powerful speakers and optional connection to additional microphones.
