Burbank, CA, March 10, 2014 - Phoenix Audio Technologies a world leader in real-time audio solutions, announced today that its new, innovative IP conference phone, the Spider, will be unveiled during the Enterprise Connect convention, in Orlando on March 17th.


The Spider is an advanced SIP based IP conference phone. In addition, it can also communicate through USB interface with any computer under any operating system. This allows it to serve as both your IP conference phone and your soft video application speakerphone. Small in size (7" in diameter), the Spider covers a large conference room with pick-up range exceeding 20 feet. In larger room setups, the Spider supports Phoenix's proprietary Link-Up/Link-Down Bus, allowing the Spider to incorporate up to 14 slave units in a daisy chain mode, thus providing the ability to cover any size room.

"Two years in the making, the Spider is the most advanced and best performing conference phone," says Joseph Marash, Phoenix Audio Technologies' CEO. "Phoenix's development team utilized their extensive experience and proprietary technologies to produce the best acoustic design, extensive and intuitive user interface, and unparalleled signal processing. The Spider's superb performance and its unique feature set make it the best audio solution addressing today's conferencing demands".

The new Phoenix Audio Technologies Spider delivers key features including:

Crystal Clear Audio Performance - the Spider utilizes an extremely powerful DSP and improved proprietary algorithms, including noise suppression, echo canceling, de-reverb, and beam forming with direction finding. All these advancements, coupled with a robust mechanical design, provide a performance level that no other product can match.

Intuitive User Interface - the Spider incorporates a one-of-a-kind interactive touch button panel and a large OLED display to provide an easy to use intuitive user interface experience. The Spider's voice tracking technique is enhanced through an under-the-grill set of LEDs that follow a person's direction of speaking and displays the algorithm in action.

The Spider will also come out simultaneously with an analog phone (PSTN) interface. The product will be available for pre-order immediately after its launch.
