I'm from a company that just started using teleconferencing through phones for meetings, and we're looking in to getting a speakerphone for one of our meeting rooms.
We actually tried Polycom's SoundStation 2, but the other end had difficulty hearing us if we're more than 3 feet away from it. I've been searching for other options, but searches keep giving me Polycom which we want to avoid using now.
The meeting room holds from 8 to 12 people max. I'm assuming this would be considered a medium-sized room.
What we're searching for is a device that can clearly pick up speakers who sit 5-6 feet away. Most ideal would be one device powerful enough for our requirement (which was why we purchased the nonexpandable one for the Polycom unit), but from my search I have a feeling units with expansion capabilities is the only way...
Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
