Bose Announces Next-Level Audio and Video Clarity for the Hybrid Workspace with the Videobar VB1 All-in-One USB Conferencing Device

Now People Can Be Clearly Seen and Fully Understood Regardless of Where They Are Located

FRAMINGHAM, Feb. 16, 2021   Bose Professional announced today the availability of the Bose Videobar VB1 all-in-one USB conferencing device that brings premium audio and video to today’s meeting spaces, allowing users to be clearly seen and fully understood on video conference calls. The six beam-steering microphones actively focus on voices in the room and reject noise. The Bose-proprietary transducers reproduce accurate, room-filling audio from multimedia presentations, play Bluetooth® audio and ensure voices sound natural and clear. The 4K ultra-HD camera with autoframing delivers crystal-clear video, so remote participants can see presenters, whiteboards and other in-room objects. 

The single-cable USB connectivity means there’s no need for separate audio and video cables at the table, reducing clutter and can be mounted to suit the space using the included table stand or wall-mount kit. All mounting options allow for tilt capability to keep the team optimally centered in the video image.

The Bose Videobar VB1 is Microsoft Teams Certified and connects to existing network infrastructure, seamlessly integrating with popular third-party cloud services including Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Zoom and more. Remote management and configuration capabilities make it simple to deploy and manage from anywhere, whether a single unit or up to one thousand installed in conference rooms across the globe. 

The Videobar VB1 can be easily configured with the Bose Work Configuration software, available as an app or via web browser; and management of devices can be done remotely with the Bose Work Management app, which displays real-time status and allows for easy single-unit or system-wide changes. Using a smartphone or included IR remote, settings can be controlled in real time using the Bose Work mobile app to easily adjust volume, mute/unmute, pan, tilt, zoom, presets and Bluetooth pairing. Users have the additional option to connect a smartphone via Bluetooth connectivity to use the Videobar VB1 as a standalone speakerphone or to stream music. So whether it’s a quick morning check-in or a full-afternoon workshop, the Bose Videobar VB1 helps teams huddle up, see more, hear more, and work better.
