Story Highlights

The Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar audio and video conferencing solution from Yamaha Music Europe GmbH now bears the Certified for Microsoft Teams logo, i.e. it is certified for the Microsoft Corporation’s Microsoft Teams software solution. This guarantees smooth, uninterrupted collaboration through high-quality audio and video with this all-in-one solution.

Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar – Optimal solution for real-time hybrid collaboration

The Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar is said to be a solution that enables video conferencing in a variety of work environments using the latest voice and speaker tracking technologies, according to the promise of Yamaha Music Europe GmbH or the Yamaha Unified Communications Division.

As already mentioned, this is an all-in-one system that offers speakers in addition to the camera and microphone and is connected to a display via an HDMI output.

The central component is therefore the AI-enabled 4K video camera, which supports auto framing and has three modes – tracking of people speaking, single tracking or group mode. The so-called Yamaha SoundCap Eye Technology, based on a multi-dimensional beamforming microphone array, focuses the speech capture on the participants of a meeting and an automatic volume control ensures optimal speech intelligibility at all times.

As mentioned earlier, several installation methods are available for the Yamaha CS-800, be it desktop, wall or display mounting with optional mounting accessories.

Previously, the Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar was already certified as Zoom Room hardware, now a second essential certification follows with Microsoft Teams.

“We are pleased to further expand our portfolio of products certified for Microsoft Teams collaboration. The CS-800’s unique technologies enable smooth, uninterrupted collaboration through high-quality audio and video for both in-person and remote participants to deliver the best Microsoft Teams experience, no matter where you work.”

Thomas Hemery, Yamaha General Manager of Global Marketing and Sales, Professional Solutions Division

However, it is not only important for Yamaha Music Europe GmbH to work closely with Microsoft Corporation in the area of Yamaha Unified Communications; it is also naturally of great importance for the IT group from Seattle in the US state of Washington to be able to gain renowned partners like Yamaha for its messaging solutions.

“A reliable and seamless collaboration experience is critical for users in today’s meeting environment. Yamaha has a long history of providing outstanding audio devices, and with certification for Microsoft Teams, the CS-800 brings another level of reliability and collaboration to the Teams experience.”

Albert Kooiman, senior director, Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft Corp.

Other Yamaha Business Solution products certified for Microsoft Teams include the Yamaha ADECIA Ceiling Solution and the Yamaha ADECIA Tabletop Solution.

Pricing and availability

The Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar is already available from specialist dealers, although this is clearly aimed at customers in the project business, so no conventional retail prices are given for end customers.

Getting to the point

The so-called hybrid working world increases the importance of video calls and thus solutions such as the Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar as flexible, easy-to-use systems for the best possible communication with business partners and colleagues. It is also essential that such solutions work seamlessly with leading software platforms, which is now guaranteed with the Yamaha CS-800 Video Sound Bar from Yamaha Music Europe GmbH through certification for Microsoft Teams.
