Yamaha Partners with Huddly for AI-Powered Conferencing

In a new partnership, the new Yamaha ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar will be bundled with Huddly’s AI wide-angle USB camera to create the “Yamaha Collaboration Kit”.

“Meeting participants demand two things no matter where they’re meeting: a seamless, intuitive experience and superior audio and video quality. As we continue to expand Yamaha’s wide breadth of superior UC solutions, these requirements are at the core of our design,” said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha Unified Communications.

Jonas Rinde, Huddly CEO, comments: “Yamaha has a well-deserved reputation across the world for building high-quality audio products and their UC portfolio is no exception. Our partnership is a terrific opportunity for end customers to experience their industry-leading audio, now combined with the high-quality, wide-angle, AI-powered video Huddly is known for. “


The Yamaha Collaboration Kit (currently available only in North America), combined with Yamaha’s Enterprise Sound Bar and Huddly IQ AI-power conference camera, it’s perfectly tailored to deliver a high-quality video collaboration experience unlike anything else. The Yamaha’s new ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar provides an immersive feeling with clear, dynamic, full-range speaker output for conference rooms. The sound bar’s two built-in subwoofers and bass-reflex port deliver clear, dynamic, full-range sound in conjunction with two dome tweeters and two woofers. Its “conference mode” preset is specialized for installation in conference room spaces with enterprise-demanded functions for easy administration. The compact and elegant design with automatic sound optimization makes it ideal for various enterprise needs and designs, allowing for positioning to be mounted vertically or placed flat. The Yamaha ESB-1080 is available as a perfect sound solution for any enterprise room to provide or expand speaker output or part of a bundled solution with the Huddly IQ AI-power conference camera.


The Yamaha Collaboration Kit’s camera provides 150-degree wide-angle 1080p video, an embedded mic array, automated AI features, and Huddly InSights analytics API. With the “Genius Framing” feature, the camera can detect participants in its field of view and respond by automatically framing the view, removing the need to manually control.

Last year, in an exclusive interview with Tehrani.com, Randall Lee, Director Strategic Channel Marketing at Yamaha Corporation said, “People don’t always understand the value of audio in meetings.” By partnering with Huddly’s leading-edge AI-powered video, the value of the solution can be sold instead of just audio or video.
