• Bose Work launches collaboration technology at ISE

    Today, Bose Professional (Stand 7–C200) is introducing Bose Work, video conference solutions. Bose Work includes the new Bose Videobar VB1 all-in-one USB conference device, the new Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 UC and ControlSpace EX components. From desktop and mobile conferencing products to all-in-one huddle space devices and fully integrated meeting rooms systems, Bose Work delivers consistent, premium performance, making interactions more natural and productive while helping people feel more connected and engaged, says the company.

    Bose Work all-in-one products, such as the Bose Videobar VB1, simplify huddle spaces and aim to make it easier for teams to work together and feel like they’re in the same room. The Videobar VB1’s automatic beam-steering microphones actively focus on voices in the space and reject noise, while the transducers produce quality sound. A 4K, ultra-HD camera delivers clear video.

    Today the workplace is every place — office, home, car and coffee shop — and the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 UC help remote workers and cubicle callers to feel more engaged. The 700 UC easily toggles between conversation, voice/video calls and music, featuring an adaptive eight-microphone system that helps turn any space into a meeting place. This proprietary system isolates the user’s voice using four of the microphones that actively identify and reject noise.

    For meeting rooms, expandable Bose ControlSpace EX conferencing processors and endpoints, together with Bose PowerSpace amplifiers and directional EdgeMax in-ceiling loudspeakers, offer an outstanding conference experience, according to the brand. Bose EX processors and endpoints easily pair with standard analog microphones or Dante microphones — such as the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2) ceiling array microphone — for meeting rooms of nearly any size.

    Bose Work conferencing products integrate with existing platforms, enhancing popular third-party cloud services such as Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts Meet, Zoom and more. "With Bose Work solutions, people collaborate more effectively, moving beyond “good enough” audio and video so they can hear more, see more, understand more — and work better."

    List pricing will be $1499 plus tax for the VB1 (which still has a few months before it ships) and $499 for the 700 UC.
