Media Vision USA Introduces First Wireless Conferencing Solution to its Existing Product Line

Media Vision USA has announced it will offer for the first time Close-Talk wireless conference and voting systems. The Close-Talk IR conferencing system, with its excellent design and quality, will be on display and demonstrated at the Media Vision USA booths during the NSCA Systems Integration Expo 2004 and the FOSE Federal Office Systems Expo 2004, both scheduled in March 2004.

“The advantages of wireless Infrared technology are boundless, particularly in complex conferencing settings that demand flawless and accurate delivery and execution,” states Fardad Zabetian, president of Media Vision U.S.A. “We are pleased to offer our customers a sophisticated and advanced alternative to conferencing in the form of wireless technology, to meet the growing demands of today’s market.”

Consisting of a central unit, an optional number of delegate units and one or more transceiver units, Close-Talk’s secure wireless conference system has numerous advantages over RF and non-wireless conferencing systems. The wireless system uses up to six infrared communications channels to transmit sound from the transceiver to delegate units, allowing multiple speakers to speak simultaneously, and eliminating bugging and interference with other wireless systems. The RS-232 serial port on the central unit enables communication to a PC as well as control devices such as AMX and Crestron. Both speakers and headphone levels in the delegate stations are adjustable. Unlike existing RF Radio Frequency systems, the wireless system is fully secure. It is also economical and very competitive in price, as well as ideal for teleconferencing purposes with the input/output in the central unit.

“Wireless conferencing is the solution many technology managers at distance learning centers and corporate boardrooms have been looking for,” said Frank Halter, a Media Vision USA sale representative from Houston. “Their most common complaint is wires on the tables.”

Other technical advantages of the Close-Talk wireless system include: PC/Windows compatibility, and expandable conference functionality and voting capabilities that include full speaker list control and archiving; battery charged units that last up to 25 hours; and the ability to handle up to 256 speakers and support up to 10 transceiver units. The detachable microphones and the carrying case also make Close-Talk conference solution ideal for rental applications.

“The need for portable and wireless systems in high-end boardrooms has finally been met,” said Roy Pass, Media Vision USA sales representative from the DC metropolitan area. “I am excited to be able to offer a fully secure wireless conference system to our customers in the government and corporate sector”.

Media Vision USA’s exciting new wireless product line will be on display at booth # 1647 at NSCA Expo 2004 scheduled from March 19th to 21st at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and at SPL booth # 2719 at FOSE 2004 scheduled from March 23rd to 25th at the Washington Convention Center.

The wireless conferencing system is now available through the existing Media Vision USA sales network across the country. To find the closest sales expert in your area, please visit
