Computer Compatible Conference Phones
These computer conference phones are designed to work with you PC and connect via the USB port. This means you can use them for making VoIP calls, Skype, IP telephony with a soft phone application or simply listening to music with the quality speakers. They range from small personal use to a room with up to 14 people and can even be used for travel. If you have an IP Pbx phone system then you should check out the IP conference phones.
Are computer conference phones designed for a phone system?
Not really. Some, like the Konftel models allow you to connect to a phone handset but computer conference phones are not as a rule designed for this. They are primarily designed for connecting to an individual’s PC. Unless you use a soft phone application from your phone system manufacturer you won’t be able to use the phone systems phone lines or connect other users in the office.
If you want to do this you need to either look at the IP conference phones if you have an IP or hosted Pbx or the standard conference phones if you have a normal digital phone system. Some normal conference phones like the Polycom Soundstation 2 series also offer a computer calling kit (via analogue cables to PC or laptop) that allow you to connect to a computer as well as a normal phone system. If you are looking for both then it’s a good option but a dedicated computer conference phone connecting via USB will always be better for this single purpose.
You can listen to music through the speakers
If you have a USB computer conference phone anything to do with the computer’s audio can also be played through the unit – that includes music! As a conference phone the speaker quality is very good so you can enjoy HD quality music anytime. And when you’re ready it transforms into a conference phone.
Can you expand a computer conference phone for more people?
Some models like the Chat Attach 150 and Chat Attach 160 allow you to connect up to 2 units together through the one USB connection. This increases the microphone pickup so you could have up to 14 users in a room. Perfect if your conference room already has a PC in place or if a person brings a laptop to the meeting. Other units like the Konftel 60w allow you to add additional optional microphones to achieve the same thing.
How many external parties can you conference at any one time?
If you are using a softphone from the phone system manufacturer you are limited by the phone system and the bandwidth you have on offer. You will need to see your phone system specifications to be sure. If you are using a third party VoIP application like Skype it depends on your bandwidth and the applications conferencing limitations.
