The Polycom Soundstation is a revolution in speaker phone design. It has been so successful, in fact, that Polycom calls it "the world's most popular conference phone." Let's take a look at some of the features that make the Polycom Soundstation so popular among corporate customers.

Features of the Polycom Soundstation

Unlike a normal, cheap speaker phone, the Polycom Soundstation features full-duplex technology. This means that you are able to talk and listen at the same time--a bad habit, perhaps, but a necessary part of any natural conversation. This technology also allows you to avoid unwanted echo, reverberation, or clipping of words. Simply put, it's the best kind of phone to have if you want to have a natural conference conversation.

The Soundstation is designed for small to medium sized rooms. It features a single speaker at the center, as well as three microphones. This design allows for 360 degree broadcast and reception, meaning that everyone sitting around the table can hear and be heard.

The Soundstation is remarkably easy to set up and operate. It features a large keypad just like a normal telephone, and it includes a mute button and a flash key for switching lines or hanging up. In the event that you need to record your conference call, the Soundstation also features a microphone output that can be used to plug into a digital or tape recorder.
