What does it all mean?
We have provided in simple terms what the acronyms mean and how they benefit you.
Active Noise Canceling (ANC): Technology that reverses surrounding sound waves to cancel low-frequency noise in order to isolate and minimize ambient noise the user can hear.
Acoustic Fence: Technology that uses a noise canceling microphone and an additional omni- directional microphone to block out background noise.
Close Conversation Limiting: Technology that optimizes your voice, while minimizing nearby background noise.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP): Mathematical manipulation of an information signal to actively reduce background noise for improved sound quality, including equalization, acoustic echo cancellation, noise reduction, and audio leveling.
Dynamic EQ: Optimizes voice quality on calls and automatically adjusts EQ settings when listening to music or for multimedia playback.
Hi-Fi Stereo: Full-range, dual-channel audio playback capable of frequencies from 20 to more than 20,000 Hz.
Advanced Hybrid Active Noise Canceling: With four microphones and three ANC settings provides greater background noise reduction compared to standard ANC.
Immersive Audio: Specially designed ear cushions and headband reduce background noise for increased clarity and comfort.
Microsoft Teams Certified: For devices to be certified, they need to meet Microsoft’s audio requirements to ensure users get the best audio experience, they also must include a dedicated Teams button to instantly bring to the foreground Microsoft Teams for streamlined communications.
SoundGuard: Acoustic limiting for protection against sounds exceeding 118 dBA per Telecom Industry Standards.
SoundGuard DIGITAL: All the benefits of SoundGuard plus anti-startle protection, which detects and eliminates sudden increases in sound, and time-weighted average (TWA) control, which prevents average daily sound exposure from exceeding 85 dBA.
Users/Room Size: Manufacturers will list how many participants a given device will support. May be listed in users or distance. Distance will be more accurate being conference tables come in many shapes and sizes which can skew how many users are within the microphones range.
Wideband: Frequency range up to 6,800 Hz. Meets TIA-920 standard for genuine wideband response.
