Konftel First to Combine Conference Phone and Wireless Headset

    UMEA, SWEDEN, November 20 /CNW/ - Konftel, Europe's leading supplier of
conference phones, is launching the Konftel 200AUX, the world's first
conference phone that can be used with a wireless headset. With the Konftel
200 AUX, a person can participate in a phone meeting outside the phone's
reception area--a useful feature for presentations and lectures.

    "We're glad to be the first to offer a solution that makes it possible to
use a conference phone and wireless headset in parallel," says Sam Romagnano,
Area Sales Manager in North America for Konftel.

    For some time now, Konftel has had many inquiries from customers and
partners about a conference phone and wireless headset combination, especially
from the US.

    "Several of our partners in the US are headset distributors, and they see
a great need on the market for this new solution," says Romagnano.

    When the headset is connected to the Konftel 200AUX, the sound from the
headset and conference phone's microphone is transmitted simultaneously. This
means the person wearing the headset can have an active dialogue with other

    The Konftel 200AUX is a powerful conference phone with an analog
connection that is made for small and medium-sized conference rooms up to 320
square feet (30 m2). The phone's reception area can be increased up to 700
square feet (70 m2) with expansion microphones. The Konftel 200AUX is equipped
with Konftel's patented OmniSound(R) technology, providing natural,
crystal-clear sound.

    The Konftel 200AUX will be available for purchase from dealers on
November 29. The recommended retail price is $549.
