SUDBURY, Mass. — Dec. 10, 2012 — Revolabs Inc. today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with VITEC Distribution GmbH, parent company to POLYFON Distribution AG. Based in Germany, VITEC is a specialist distributor of audio and video conferencing, presentation, and telecommunications solutions. Under the agreement, VITEC and Polyfon will distribute the Revolabs FLX™ wireless conference phone throughout Germany and Switzerland, respectively.
"Over the last year, we have focused on expanding our distribution network across the globe," said Marc Cremer, COO at Revolabs. "As a result, we have seen tremendous demand for all our wireless audio products internationally, and particularly for our FLX wireless conference phone. Partnering with VITEC and POLYFON is a key move in continuing our expansion and meeting the demand for FLX in Germany and Switzerland."
"The FLX wireless conference phone will make an excellent addition to our lineup of conferencing solutions," said Wilhelm Mettner of VITEC and POLYFON. "For all of our customers — from small businesses to large enterprises — there is a great demand for wireless solutions that provide exceptional audio quality. The FLX meets this need, while also providing easy set up, compatibility with all major video conferencing systems, and much more. We are excited to offer these unique advantages to our customers."
The FLX combines wireless operation with high-quality wideband audio, 128-bit encryption, and integrated Bluetooth®. Unlike the single-component design of other solutions, the systems consist of several distinct components, giving users unprecedented freedom with respect to placement and accessibility of the speaker, microphones, and dial pad. Because its dialer operates like a telephone for handset calls, the FLX eliminates the need for a separate desk and conference phone. FLX is available with a variety of Revolabs microphones, including lapel, omnidirectional, and directional tabletop microphones.
Available in analog or VoIP interfaces, the Revolabs FLX is the first and only wireless conference phone designed for VoIP networks. Ideal for conference rooms, executive offices, and SoHo environments, the FLX integrates directly with most IP telephone switches that follow the SIP standard, enabling new features — such as voicemail alerts and "do not disturb" — previously only available through digital switch environments. The ideal unified communication technology, the FLX can also serve as the audio interface for virtually any major brand of video-conferencing equipment.
