Huddle Spaces and Yamaha's CS-700 Video Conferencing System


Yamaha’s CS-700 video sound collaboration system is specifically designed as an all-in-one unit to equip huddle spaces with best in class audio, video, and screen sharing capability. Huddle spaces have unique requirements, as they typically are small sized rooms with limited tabletop space.
The Yamaha CS-700 combines ultra-wideband audio with high-quality video to fulfill video, audio, and collaboration requirements in one simple, wall-mounted system addressing all communication and collaboration requirements of the huddle room.
Audio, video and screen sharing is accomplished through one USB cable. The integrated remote management capability enables IT departments across the world to remotely monitor and manage their huddle space installations.

Why Huddle Spaces Matter

As 2018 gets underway, a lot of us will be thinking of positive changes and fresh starts. For businesses, that may include improving the way people create ideas. It could be addressing challenges or making the best of each other’s knowledge and talent.

Businesses need to maximise collaboration and productivity. This generates the requirement for more flexible spaces making huddle spaces so important to your staff. High-tech collaboration areas can be used for impromptu meetings. They also bring together remote and onsite collaborators.

Remote Manageability

Managing up to hundreds of huddle rooms is a challenge for any IT department.  The Yamaha CS-700 enables remote monitoring and management of the units as well as configuring units in bulk, and upgrading them remotely and automatically through the IP interface.  Managing technology in the huddle space just became way simpler!

Quality Conference Video

Due to the small size of huddle spaces, participants sit close to displays and cameras in these rooms, in the past requiring panning of video cameras to see the whole room. The Yamaha CS-700 industry-leading 120 degree ultra-wide angle camera captures all meeting participants in one field of view. The CS-700 camera covers 80% more area in the whole room, removing the hassle of panning and zooming cameras to see everybody in the room. The high pixel count of the CS-700 ensures that every expression is captured clearly for people up to 10ft/3m from the camera. It is truly a “set it and forget it” video system.

Superior Conference Audio

“Hear every word” has never meant more to meeting success than today. The CS-700 takes advantage of years of professional and corporate audio experience within Yamaha and Revolabs. The CS-700 features a beamforming microphone array that picks up every word spoken in the room and delivers it to the far end. A four-element speaker bar provides amazing audio in the room, ensuring that every word spoken at the far end is heard. Combine that with award-winning audio processing technology integrated in the CS-700 and you have easy, natural conversations between meeting participants with clarity and intelligibility for all.

USB and SIP support

The Yamaha CS-700 becomes the one communication device in the room. It supports business communication applications such as Microsoft Skype, UnifyMe, PEXIP and others. In addition, the CS-700 provides a SIP interface to the corporate call manager, replacing the need for a separate conference phone in the huddle space. USB and SIP communications can be easily bridged in the CS-700, expanding the communication opportunities even further. And Bluetooth allows for fast and easy audio connections, instantly turning a mobile or computer call into a conference call.

Wall Mount

Table space in huddle spaces is typically at a premium. The Yamaha CS-700 is a wall mount system, eliminating any need for table-top equipment in the huddle space. The wall mount provides simple installation and makes connecting the wires to the CS-700 easy by use of a special pivot design feature. If you can drill a hole, you can install the CS-700.
