SINGAPORE - Media OutReach -
19 September 2019 - Plantronics, Inc. ("Poly" -- formerly
Plantronics and Polycom) (NYSE: PLT) ,
a global communications company that powers meaningful human connection and
collaboration, today announced the next generation of the company's lineup of
popular Savi wireless headsets. The enhanced Savi Office and UC Series will
offer more wearing styles, plus features to help with working in noisy office
"People will always need the ability
to focus," said Tamara Lane, director of product marketing, personal solutions,
of Poly. "Open offices facilitate collaboration which is great for group
problem-solving, but we all have our moments when we need to focus
independently. The challenge is staying in the zone despite the buzz around
you. We've updated our Savi 8200 Office and UC Series headsets to better
address these needs."
Poly's expertise in enterprise-grade
headset solutions enable maximum productivity -- whether you connect to your
desk phone, PC, mobile device or a combination of devices -- regardless of the
type of work environment you are in. The new Savi 8200 wireless headset
models allow you to escape distraction with the following features:
Conversation Limiting and ANC
The new Savi 8200 Office and UC Series includes a unique close
conversation limiting feature. That means that everyone on the call will hear
only the person talking into the headset, without interfering background noise
from neighboring co-workers. The Savi 8220 also includes active noise canceling
(ANC) to block out office noise. These features help everyone on the call focus
on the business at hand. Poly is the first enterprise headset company to offer
a DECT ™ headset with ANC.
Savi headsets are great for "corridor
warriors" who prefer (or need) to walk and talk while on a call. The Savi 8200
family of devices enjoy a wireless office range of up to 180
feet (55 meters). If users are in an unblocked line of sight from the base,
that range extends up to 590 feet (180 meters), giving people the freedom to
roam. The Savi 7200 Office headset has a range of up to 394 feet (120 meters),
for when people really need to work while away from their desk phone. The Savi
8245 adds unlimited talk-time: users can charge a second battery that comes
with the purchase while the headset is in use. If the battery starts to run
low, users can do a "hot swap" during a call without missing a beat.
Wearing Styles and Multiple-Device Connectivity
With the new Savi line, businesses now have access to a variety of
wearing styles to suit different
preferences, including stereo (Savi 8220), mono (Savi 8210) or convertible
(Savi 8240/8245). The Savi 7200 Office
Series includes a newly designed over-the-head DECT headset for traditional and
IP desk phone use. The Savi 8200
Office base also features multi-device connectivity and easy call merging with
support for desk phones, mobile devices and PCs. The Savi 8200 UC Series
includes a DECT mini USB adapter compatible with PCs/Macs or desk phones
supporting USB audio.
These new Savi headsets continue to lead the industry in security.
Poly remains the only headset manufacturer to have its entire DECT portfolio
certified for security by the DECT Forum, the international association
of the wireless home and enterprise communication industry.
Management for IT
Adding the Plantronics Manager Pro software-as-a-service (sold
separately) to a purchase allows IT teams to track every Savi 8200 Office or
Savi 8200 UC Series product to help streamline the management of headset
deployments, including device firmware updates and policy compliance.
