New Q3 Offers Key Advancements in Design, Performance and Functionality

Phoenix Audio Technologies, a leading developer of audio communication solutions for Voice Over IP (VoIP), Web Conferencing, Distance Learning, and Video Conferencing applications, announces that its Quattro3 (Q3) family of tabletop conference speakerphones will make its InfoComm debut at this year's show (Booth N1311). The Q3 family, which features improvements in performance, design, expandability, flexibility and functionality, offers professionals in A/V, education, government and more a complete audio conferencing solution, regardless of room size or acoustics.

All members of the Q3 family, which includes the USB MT301, PSTN MT302, Smart MT303, Power MT304 and IP Phone MT305 interface models, can be daisy-chained and powered from a single source, using a standard Ethernet cable. There is no need to install proprietary cables or designated units. As for the individual interface models, the Smart MT303 features a built-in rechargeable battery, the IP Phone MT305 a built-in dialer and the PSTN MT302 a built-in dialer and rechargeable battery. For added flexibility and ease of use, all interfaces are interchangeable. Other major features include a four-microphone beam-forming array, a newly designed loudspeaker, an external sound-reinforcement microphone, a library of audio color filters and three-way interface bridging capabilities.

The Q3 family ensures crystal-clear communications with full-duplex, true high definition audio. Featuring a bandwidth rate of 16 KHz, with a 32 KHz-sampling rate, it executes improved and more aggressive algorithms, enabling it to handle audio smoothly even in large and reverberant rooms. The Q3 family also features a new modular interface design that makes it the first conference speakerphone capable of adapting to changing office technologies, eliminating the need to replace units as voice communications systems migrate to different technologies.

"Phoenix Audio Technologies is making a strong statement at this year's InfoComm show," says Joseph Marash, CEO, Phoenix Audio Technologies. "Not only will several of our products, such as Quattro3, Duet and Solo, be on display at other vendor's booths in the Audio Pavilion, but we are proud to be bringing Quattro3 to the InfoComm attendees for the first time. And just as our other products help solve the audio challenges of today's A/V professionals, our new Quattro3 is a tabletop conference speakerphone that is discreet and compact enough to fit into even the most crowded conferencing environments, while offering extremely high-quality, clear audio. This way, users can conduct critical communications without having to fuss over bulky equipment or faulty audio. They literally can push a button and go right into a call, regardless of the size of the room or the amount of reverberation in the space. We believe this is truly one of the most advanced speakerphones on the market."

Phoenix Audio Technologies has conveniently relocated all of the Q3's connectors under the unit to allow for a more discreet cable connection. The Q3 also comes with an optional ceiling installation kit.

The size and shape of the Q3 retains the small footprint and elegant look of its predecessors, using the same outer shell of aluminum die-cast metal as the Quattro2 (Q2), adding a professional and durable feel to the product. It is also utilizes the same proprietary multistage-split-echo canceling and advanced frequency and time-domain noise-canceling algorithms found in previous Quattro models, along with the same in-unit controls and connectivity capabilities.

Phoenix Audio Technologies will have its product lines on display at various vendor booths throughout the show's Audio Pavilion.
