No matter what size conference room, the ErisStation™ Wireless Conference Phone (VCS704, MSRP: $599) enables crystal clear conversations with four DECT 6.0 wireless microphones and two fixed, central microphones. The portable microphones feature Orbitlink Wireless Technology™ and synchronize to maximize pickup range in all directions. When the meeting is finished, simply return the microphones to the magnetic charging bays in the base – no clutter, no hassle.

The ErisStation Wireless Conference Phone raises the bar for sound quality in the industry, ensuring every word of every call can be heard. Several features contribute to natural-sounding, clear conversations, including echo cancellation, noise suppression, integrated digital mixing technology and an audio equalizer. Participants can easily speak and listen to others naturally at the same time through the full-duplex central speakerphone. The base station is PBX-compatible and comes with a 50-name and number phonebook, 50-number caller ID log and a large, backlit display for easy call handling. The wireless microphones each have up to eight hours of talk time and up to 70 hours of battery life to accommodate long calls.

"The ErisStation Wireless Conference Phone brings VTech's strong brand reputation to a new marketplace with compact wireless microphones, affordability and VTech's manufacturing expertise," said Graham Williams, vice president, Business Phones Division, VTech Communications. "The new VTech business line is designed around modern businesses' need for mobility and simplicity. Our conference phone and our new SIP phones will help IT managers and business owners move more easily and rapidly into the future."

Capturing Cost Savings with VTech ErisTerminal Business Phones
Millions of businesses are taking advantage of reduced hardware costs and the simplicity of routing calls over an Internet connection. Beginning April 1, VTech will offer affordable ErisTerminal™ SIP phones in feature-rich* desktop and cordless models that leverage different cloud, hosted and open-source telephony solutions without negatively impacting network traffic. The result is a quality audio experience, business-friendly features and a lower cost to operate than traditional phone systems.

"Analysts and IT managers alike see SIP as the protocol for the future, with large growth expected over the next several years to take advantage of cost savings and compatible device options," said Gary Audin, an industry expert and president of Delphi, Inc. "Businesses are moving toward the cloud for many other services, and VTech's new SIP phone options help them to take advantage of this trend without sacrificing mobility, price, professionalism and usability."

The VSP725 (MSRP: $119) and the VSP735 (MSRP: $199) are desktop models and the VSP601 (MSRP: $89) is a cordless handset, all of which support high quality HD audio and multiple lines.
