EPOS is a British organisation that produces high-end speakers, headsets, and video conferencing devices. Their goal is to empower businesses around the world to improve their communication and collaboration, everywhere and with every device. They do this by using the most advanced audio and collaboration technologies to create reliable, powerful, and easy-to-use products. They introduced the EPOS Expand Vision range to offer something for everyone and every type of meeting room. In this article we will discuss the different components of the range and go over their key features.
Expand Vision 1
Do you work from home or are you on the go a lot, but do you still want to look professional? In that case, an easily transportable, high-quality webcam is a must. The Expand Vision 1 is exactly that. It has a 4K wide-angle camera that optimized the image based on the light conditions. So whether you’re working from a dim meeting room or your home desk in front of a window, you can be sure of a clear picture. The webcam also has two integrated omni-directional, noise-cancelling microphones. These microphones are designed to pick up only your voice and ignore background noise. With this webcam you will always have high-quality video and audio wherever you go. Simply mount it on top of your computer with the convenient built-in clip and you’re ready to go!
Expand Vision 1M
If you’re looking to complete your small to medium-sized meeting room, the Expand Vision 1M might be what you’re looking for. This USB camera is compact and easy to bring to any BYOD meeting, but it also perfectly fits as part of a native meeting room. The Vision 1M has a wide-angle 4K camera with intelligent picture framing. The camera will automatically adjust to the amount of people in the meeting and provide the perfect picture. With its sleek, elegant design it will look good in every room and won’t be a distraction. For the moments you need your privacy, you simply press the button on the top to close the integrated privacy shutter.
Wired expansion speakers
For larger meeting rooms, rooms with a camera without a microphone, or people that want to upgrade their audio quality, EPOS’ expansion speakers are a perfect solution. The wired speakers offer a certain amount of security, with an easy plug-and-play connection and no worries about losing connection. The Expand Capture 5 has a seven-microphone array that provides superior audio. Additionally, it can identify up to 10 voices in the room and can transcribe a live feed of the meeting.
The Expand 20 is designed to be used on the go and may be used to set up an office whenever and wherever it is required. It is as easy as it gets and can connect to your PC/softphone, or even your tablet or mobile phone. Do you already have an Expand 80? You can extend it by adding up to two extra Expand 80 Mics. They have four beamforming microphones, so that everyone in the room can be clearly heard by the other side of the meeting. By adding one mic, you enable the Expand 80 to clearly pick up the voices of eight extra participants.
Do you prefer going wireless? This also has many benefits, like a cleaner workspace since you don’t need cables anymore. EPOS designed the Expand 30 line specifically for small and medium-sized conferencing rooms, making it light, portable, and UC optimised. The speaker has an ultra-low distortion and echo- and noise cancelling microphones. This gives you exceptional audio performance for both you and your meeting partners. There are two versions. The Expand 30 only connects via cable, while the Expand 30+ includes a Bluetooth USB dongle for PCs and softphones, though they primarily share features.
The EPOS Expand 40 line has a lot in common with the 30. They have the same features as mentioned before, and they both have up to 18 hours of talk time. The main difference is that the 40-line has strong background noise reduction technology and allows for simultaneous speech. The Expand 40 is UC optimised, the Expand 40T is Microsoft Teams optimised, and the Expand 40+ comes with a Bluetooth USB dongle.
The EPOS Expand 80 is a premium Bluetooth speakerphone for meetings with up to 16 participants. The six adaptive, beamforming microphones isolate voices from ambient noise and ensure your voice is clearly heard. Your online meetings will improve dramatically as a result of the advanced microphones that enhance speech and understanding. Like the Expand 30 and 40 from the EPOS Expand Vision range, this speaker also allows for simultaneous speech and has ultra-low distortion. Designed in Scandinavia, it has a premium minimalistic aesthetic. It’s simple but made with high-quality materials design looks great in every setting and is easy to use. You can set up your conference call in seconds with just one touch. One or two Expand 80 Mics can extend the speaker, allowing eight more participants per speaker. The Expand 80T version, designed for Microsoft Teams, is also available just like the other wireless speakers.
Expand Vision 3T Core
Are you looking for a complete solution for your small meeting room? The Expand Vision 3T Core has reinvented video collaboration. It is an all-in-one bar that allows you to join meetings with just one touch, no computer needed. The 4K wide-angle, full HD camera with Sony sensor produces the clearest images. Together with a microphone with noise cancellation and exceptional voice pick-up, they make it feel like you are at the meeting in person.
EPOS AI provides the Vision 3T Core with Automatic Framing Technology. The camera automatically adapts the frame to how many people there are in your meeting and where they are sitting. You can easily control the bar with a smart display or with the included Expand Vision 3T remote control. Lastly, it can be placed wherever you please. You can put it on top of a screen or a table or use a wall-mount to hang it on any wall.
Expand Vision 5
If you are looking to take your small- to medium sized meeting room to the next level, the Expand Vision 5 might be what you’re looking for. This is also an all-in-one video bar that combines a 4K wide-angle camera with Sony sensor for razor-sharp video with outstanding audio performance. Two integrated speakers and four microphones will give you this amazing audio experience every meeting. Additionally, it is built with EPOS’ BrainAdapt technology. These unique algorithms and acoustics help the brain focus and orientate during digital meetings.
Like the 3T, this bar doesn’t need a separate computer to join meetings. However, it does also support a USB connection which turns it into a BYOD solution and lets participants use their own devices. The AI features will automatically adjust the camera to properly frame the room and include all people in the meeting room. No additional equipment that takes up room on your tables and clutters with cables is needed because everything is incorporated into the bar.
Expand Control tablet
EPOS also offers extremely convenient accessories for your meeting rooms, like the Expand Control Meeting Room Controller. Use this tablet as a meeting room controller or a scheduling panel. It seamlessly integrates with all leading UC solutions and into every meeting room. EPOS specifically designed the control panel to provide an outstanding user experience.
The big 10”1 anti-glare touch screen is easy to use and gives a stunning, professional look to your rooms. It has many features designed to optimize and simplify your everyday online meetings. You can join meetings with one touch, adjust the call settings, or share your content. The tablet can also be hung on the wall to be used as a scheduling device. With a few touches you can reserve a room and the multi-colored LEDs on the device will show the availability of a room. This flexible, super convenient device is a great addition to every office.
EPOS Expand Vision Bundles
For even more convenience, EPOS has created some ready-to-go bundles. They made a bundle with the Expand Vision 3T Core bar, the Expand 80T speakerphone, and the Expand control panel. The Vision 3T bar normally comes without a speakerphone, so you have the choice of which one to use. If you decide on the 80T this pack might be interesting for your organisation. They also created a bundle with the Expand Vision 5 and the Expand Control panel. There is no need for separate speakers to clutter your workspace since they are integrated into the bar. This might be the right choice if you’re going for a superior experience with the EPOS BrainAdapt technology.
