Yamaha Unified Communications today announced a new model to its Enterprise Sound Bar lineup, the ESB-1090. The ESB-1090 solves common challenges and limitations in sound output to create a rich, premium audio experience for remote conferencing, classrooms, and hotel guest rooms, lobbies, or meeting rooms. Optimizing the audio for each of these environments, the ESB-1090 features three modes, allowing users to opt between Conference, Education, and Hotel.
"Flatscreen displays are often not suited to deliver the volume or clarity for students and meeting participants — once again highlighting the incredible importance of high-quality audio," said Meghan Kennelly, director of global marketing and communications at Yamaha Unified Communications. "With the ESB-1090, they don't have to gather close to the screen in order to clearly hear a video, presentation, or conference call. In addition, it can connect to the in-room TV, PC, laptop, or mobile device, answering the variety of audio requirements that are present in a single environment."
Delivering an immersive audio experience, Yamaha's ESB-1090 features two subwoofers, two mid-range speakers, and two tweeters. Perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, and hospitality spaces, it connects to any sound source — display, PC, or mobile device — via HDMI, Bluetooth, or even optical cable and analog audio. The unit simplifies setup through the three application modes to achieve the suitable sound quality and configuration. Users simply swap between Conference Mode for remote conference purposes, Education Mode for classroom settings, and Hotel Mode for lobby or room playback with the included remote. There is also an operation restriction preset to prevent unwanted tampering or changes. It can also be configured for Ethernet operation. Like the ESB-1080, the ESB-1090's simple, slim design naturally blends into any environment and offers installation versatility. Installers can either wall mount the unit or place it flat on a table or school AV cart.
