Plantronics (News - Alert), a specialist in developing wearable technology, has unveiled its Voyager Legend CS as part of its Voyager headset line. The device aims to enhance wireless mobility capabilities, which in turn will help boost virtual collaboration and productivity of workers in the office and while traveling.
Richard Rogers, head of Europe and Africa B2B marketing at Plantronics, said, “Plantronics has set the bar for enterprise-level communications solutions with the Voyager series of products. With the CS, we are addressing office workers who spend an increasing amount of time collaborating on conference calls on their desk phone or mobile phone and need better mobility by being hands free.”
The Voyager Legend CS comes with all the features characteristic of the Voyager family, such as tuned audio, noise cancellation, Smart Sensor technology and voice-enabled controls. It is designed to facilitate connectivity in mobile phones as well as desk phones.
Workers require optimum audio quality while working in office and also when in a non-office environments. The Voyager Legend CS maintains call quality for mobile workers enabling easy management of mobile and desktop calls using Smart Sensor technology.
This technology directs calls intuitively to a phone or headset and allows users to answer by placing the headset on the ear. Because workers can attend to a call on their desk phone or mobile device using the Voyager Legend CS, it offers the flexibility to work from anywhere.
“Today’s workforce needs a modern communications solution that moves throughout the day with them, from the office to the coffee shop to the car with the kids. The Voyager Legend CS is built to do just that,” said Rogers.
The Voyager Legend CS connects directly to an office desk phone and allows easy management with a single headset. It provides a roaming capability of up to 10 meters from desktop charging base or mobile device and delivers up to 7 hours talk time and 11 days standby capacity. Other features include caller name announcement for incoming mobile calls, integrated A2DP, superior noise cancellation and three layers of wind noise protection.
Plantronics also announced that it will sponsor the Internet of Things Hackathon Series hosted by AT&T (News - Alert) and Intel. The event will focus on the development of apps that are compatible with multiple devices, including various mobile and desktop devices. At the events, Plantronics will provide qualified developers with its latest wearable concept device and APIs.
