MAXHUB conference speakerphone UC BM21 earns Zoom certification

By Contributor
Thu 10 Feb 2022

MAXHUB, a market leader in the creation of innovative collaboration solutions, recently announced a new development for its unified communication product portfolio. The impressive all-in-one UC BM21 Bluetooth speakerphone is now officially Zoom Certified, the market leader in cloud meeting solutions.

Achieving Zoom certification identifies the MAXHUB UC BM21 device as a high-quality solution for plug-and-play communication that meets or exceeds Zoom requirements.

Designed for the modern workplace, the BM21 series speakerphone can be permanently set up in the office, or for staff adapting to remote and hybrid work models, it combines impeccable ease of use with crystal clear audio quality and reliability. 

As a Zoom Certified device, buyers can rest assured that the MAXHUB UC BM21 teleconferencing speakerphone works seamlessly and intuitively with the Zoom Meetings and Zoom Rooms environments. 

Achieving Zoom certification

Earning Zoom certification is another successful milestone for MAXHUB in cooperating with key industries partners. The achievement demonstrates the commitment of the company to creating user-friendly devices for the modern age of work, with enterprise-grade quality and features. 

MAXHUB UC product manager, Keith Kang, comments on the prestigious achievement, saying: “Zoom certification reassures users that MAXHUB can provide the high quality required in today’s crucial Zoom Meetings. The intuitive plug-and-play design, combined with state-of-the-art audio defines the UC BM21 tool as a tool for maximum performance, with minimal setup complexity. With Zoom and MAXHUB, every meeting attendee can get the most out of their conferencing sessions.”

The MAXHUB UC BM21 speakerphone

The UC BM21 speakerphone is a comprehensive tool for collaboration and communication, capable of meeting Zoom’s high standards for pristine communication performance. The product features a 360-degree omnidirectional voice pickup capability, wireless charging, an 8-hour playtime, and delivers clear audio quality in any environment.

Furthermore, at only 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) high and under 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter, the BM21 can seamlessly blend into any meeting room space. 

A set of large dynamic speakers equipped with enhanced DSP for intelligent noise reduction and echo cancellation, ensures users experience natural, clear sounds from any position in the meeting room, while the 6-element PZM boundary microphone intelligently masters omnidirectional voice acquisition. It’s the ideal microphone and speaker solution for the conference table in small to mid-sized meetings. 

Zoom certification program manager, JC Leffler says, “We are very pleased to see the official cooperation between MAXHUB and Zoom. We have already seen the capabilities of MAXHUB in the UC BM21 product and look forward to further cooperation with MAXHUB in the future.”

A significant step for MAXHUB technology

MAXHUB, a brand owned by the CVTE group, a world-renowned provider of smart display solutions and advanced collaboration products, reckons this certification will be the first of many to come for its growing UCC product portfolio. Since its launch, MAXHUB has focused on the development of cutting-edge interactive technologies and intelligent solutions that are optimised for use in the modern workplace, education, and healthcare environments. 

Achieving Zoom certification is significant progress for the MAXHUB team in delivering impeccable quality products. As MAXHUB general manager Darren Lin notes: “Zoom’s Hardware Certification Program inspired us to prove ourselves to our customers and demonstrate our ability to offer the high-quality audio and video collaboration experiences teams need. In the future, MAXHUB will continue to build better solutions for customers of Zoom.”
