April 6, 2016, Irvine CA – Phoenix Audio Technologies announced today that it has released a new version of its SIP dialer app for iPhones and iPads. The dialer allows users to control the Phoenix Audio Condor Beamforming Microphone Array (MT600) and Phoenix Audio SIP Spider Conference Phone (MT505) units, as long as the iPhone/iPad device is connected to the same local network.
The application enables a user to dial, take a call, control the volumes, and also control many of the unit’s parameters, remotely. This new version includes security features that enable you to limit the control over the Condors (or Spiders) to devices with the proper permission. You can select an option which will allow anyone in your company to control these units, or restrict the access to a limited number of specific devices (for example – a dedicated conference room iPad).
“The Dialer application is the final piece in the puzzle which makes the Condor a complete, wire-free, clutter-free audio solution to your huddle or conference room. Our vision was that you can either choose a dedicated wireless device, such as an iPad, to be your controlling unit, or allow anyone with an iPhone to control the Condor from their own personal device. The fact that this controller is free of charge just adds to the cost effectiveness of the Condor as the only audio device you need in the room,” says Joseph Marash, CEO of Phoenix Audio Technologies. “We opened this application to be used as a controller for the Spider, as well, to conform to rooms with SIP Spiders, adding another level of ease of use. You no longer have to lean over to dial, nor upload your personal phone book; you can simply use your iPhone to control the call.”
More on the Condor
The Condor is a 48-inch wide multi-microphone array with a pickup range of up to thirty feet. It also features a built-in SIP phone, which can be controlled using a dedicated application that runs on your smart device. Created with the goal of decluttering conference rooms, the Condor sits above or below your monitor, eliminating cumbersome devices and wires from the conference table. It can easily connect to any video conferencing system, and use any type of loudspeakers, including external sound bars or your monitor’s internal speakers. The Condor will completely change the look and dynamics of conference rooms.
More on the Spider
The Spider utilizes an extremely powerful DSP and state of the art proprietary algorithms, including noise suppression, echo canceling, de-reverb, and beamforming with direction-finding. Most notably, the SIP conference’s dual connectivity, which supports bridging for audio and video calls, and unparalleled daisy chaining option to expand pickup range for any size room, is what sets itself apart in the market. A one-ofa-kind interactive touch button panel and a large display provides a smooth interface experience. Its voice tracking technique is enhanced through an under-the-grill set of LED that follow a person’s direction of speaking and displays the algorithm in action. The Spider will come to life and display only the needed functions depending on the specific scenario to provide a no-hassle audio solution for any conference room. Given these innovative elements, there is no question that the Spider is a perfect solution for today’s market needs.
