What is it?
Whether speaking freely on one-to-one calls and also moving about the room freely or even conducting meetings with several people — for Skype conferences, standard conference calls or simple calls through — to presentations and talks of all types — PHONUM is ideally suited for all types of discussions, meetings and presentations thanks to its highly developed and precise microphone technology and intelligent downfire speaker. Distance is not a problem anymore.
Communication is not static, rather often also variable and dynamic. That’s why we developed and integrated GECKO technology, which is fully focused on the type of communication. The GECKO function supports specific spatial requirements.
At first glance it might appear that the loudspeaker is overhead. The microphones are positioned beneath the grille. The speaker is not visible because it is directed downward – and with good reason. It allows sound to be radiated 360° all over the room. PHONUM adapts fully to the people in the meeting room, depending on where they are sitting or moving about at the time. The perception of sound with PHONUM is therefore simply phonumenal.
Meetings can be conducted quickly and easily via videoconference apps like Skype® for Buiness, Cisco WebEx Meetings®, Cisco WebEx Teams®, Google Hangouts and Zoom as audio and video calls.
How does it work?
GECKO FIX MODE: For a presentation targeted at one speaker, GECKO FIX mode is ideal. That’s because the voice recording focuses precisely on this fixed location. The advantage of this is that noises or what is spoken by all other people in the room is not recorded by the microphone. All listeners can therefore follow the presentation in quiet comfort.
GECKO FOLLOW MODE: Where communication is directed at people who move about the room freely during the meeting or where only one person is ever to have the floor, then GECKO FOLLOW is the right mode. That’s because the microphones conveniently follow the people in the room in this mode.
GECKO 360° MODE: Where people are gathered around a table at a meeting and communicate with one another, then GECKO 360° mode is the right choice. What is spoken by all participations in the communication is recorded in this mode.
BEST-IN-CLASS ECHO CANCELLATION PHONUM: has the best speech intelligibility without any distracting effects like echo, noise or interruptions. An excellent voice quality is ensured at any time. Even if both parties speak at the same time, there are no losses or delays. This results in a convenient discussion atmosphere and a focus on essential information.
