Yealink, the Global number 2 SIP phone provider, has just announced the launch of its new video conferencing (VC) solution. The new Yealink VC solution is available through Even Flow Distribution, Yealink's platinum South African distributor, and will be launched to audio visual system integrators and solution partners through an exciting partner programme that offers massive value and support.

Yealink has been designing and manufacturing innovative, high-quality, low-carbon IP phones since 2001. It provides state-of-the-art, hi-tech VOIP communication terminals including IP video phones, IP phones and DECT phones. The recently launched Yealink VC400 is Yealink's first solution in video conferencing.

"Yealink is well known in the South African market as one of the leading brands in IP phones and the launch of the new Yealink VC400 video conferencing solution offers the SME sector an incredible advanced VC product generally reserved for the enterprise." says Ezelle Andrews, Product Manager at Even Flow Distribution.

Yealink's initial VC product portfolio consists of the four-way multi-site VC400 and the point-to-point VC120. The VC400 video conferencing system is designed for head office use and capable of bridging four different video sites through the VC400's on-board MCU. The VC120 video conferencing endpoint is designed for branch office use and is capable of one-site connection. Both units support dual HDMI display, dynamic bandwidth adjustment, video recording and full HD video conferencing at up to 1080p at 30 fps. The VC400 in the future will support up to eight sites through an optional software upgrade.

Yealink's VC series has found a unique way of making video conference calls simple while their 1080P full HD capabilities ensures crystal clear images. The VC series is as a result of Yealink investing in advanced HD video technologies that deliver realistic face-to-face communications. The series includes an 18x optical zoom HD camera and a 360-degree omnidirectional pickup microphone as well as a built-in powerful MCU that allows 1080p video between four sites in addition to 1080p content sharing.

The Yealink VC series has huge network bandwidth advantages due to the fact that it requires no additional dedicated networks as it is supported by H.264 high profile technology and intelligent network adaptability, allowing savings of up to 50% on bandwidth. Intelligent firewall traversal also allows for easy setup on any network. The VC series provides intuitive operation, easy-to-use buttons and user interface, which allows for all operations to be carried out in fewer steps. This therefore requires no specialised IT staff in order to set up and use the series.

"The feature set is unique in the market and at a price point that blows all the traditional established VC brands out the water. Finally there is a VC product that you don't have to compromise features or quality in order to fit an SME budget," says Andrews.

Yealink's VC series has been demonstrated worldwide and is being received with great enthusiasm due to its cost-effectiveness as a multipoint video collaboration for SMEs. Many first time users have noted the series as a ground-breaking development in the SME market and have already noted its potential for future use in industries such as education and hospitality.

Even Flow Distribution is the official Yealink VC distributor in South Africa and is launching the VC series through a compelling partner programme that offers free trial units, heavily discounted demo units, sales and technical training and much more.
