Konftel announce the UK launch of their new video conferencing solutions

Monday 30 April 2018

Following their record breaking year, booming Konftel are about to launch a new range of collaboration solutions of audio and video endpoints at the Exertis PLUG-IN partner event at Silverstone on April 19th, quickly followed by showcasing at UC EXPO at London's ExCeL Arena on May 16th and 17th.

“After 30 years of enabling millions of distance meetings with our award winning conference phones, we are now adding conference cameras into our acclaimed portfolio”, says Peter Renkel, CEO at Konftel. “It's about time, you might say, but we firmly believe in doing things properly”, says Peter, “and that's the reason why we will not just start selling cameras that complement our phones; we will make functional and value-added solutions that are easy to choose and use.”

The name of the new solutions is Konftel Collaboration with the appendix Small, Medium or Large designed for different size meetings. All packages include conference phones, cameras, and hubs to enable one cable connection to a PC or Mac.

“Customers first, is more than just words at Konftel, it's the way we always have been evolving”, states Tommy Edlund, Director of Global Sales. “That's why we now are offering hassle-free Konftel Collaboration solutions that are based on the meeting attendees core needs. In that way it's easy to choose and use the right solution for everyone without being tech savvy. That’s really important to us and it’s simple for both our customers and partners.”

Cameras to match top class audio

Initially the collaboration packages will make use of two high-performance conference camera models. Konftel Cam20 sends a crisp, clear video image in ultra 4K HD resolution. The 120° wide field of view makes it ideal in the small huddle room, to make sure everyone fits in the picture when close to the camera. The Konftel Cam40 is a full blood PTZ conference camera with 1080p/60fps HD video image and 12x optical zoom.

In the Konftel Collaboration Small category, the first solution comes with the Konftel Cam20, and the Red Dot-design awarded Konftel Ego speakerphone. Konftel Collaboration Medium and Large solutions build on the Konftel Cam40 and a choice of hybrid conference phone in the Konftel 300-series. Expansion microphones can be added for large meetings with up to 20 participants, and for even larger meetings, a PA-box connects to installed room audio systems as an option for two of the packages.

UK Sales Director Jeff May is delighted to have such high profile events to launch their new portfolio. “Plug-In will be a reseller only event to inform the channel of the upcoming releases and UC EXPO is an opportunity for all resellers to invite their customers to come and see our new, high quality collaboration solutions. We aim to offer best-value-for-money when companies all over the world look for endpoints to their cloud-based collaboration tools, whether they use Skype for Business, Zoom or any other service. Our hybrid approach, where you easily combine USB and dialled calls in the Konftel 300-models, will also add extra flexibility for all users.”

Konftel Cameras will also be available as separate products, based on requests from existing Konftel customers that want to build on their earlier investments.

“Our new collaboration solutions open up new markets for us”, says Peter Renkel, CEO and founder of Konftel. “We, therefore, look forward to continue expanding our business together with our partners.”

Global shipments will start in Q3 – 2018.
