VOYAGER PRO HD AND INSTANTMEETING APP FOR SMARTPHONES TRANSFORM MOBILE PRODUCTIVITY
London, UK - 11th October 2011 - Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) today extended its family of Bluetooth® products with the launch of the Plantronics Voyager PRO HD Bluetooth® headset. Part of the award-winning Voyager PRO line, the Plantronics' Voyager PRO HD is designed to make work and life easier for professionals on the go and is the first consumer headset that knows when you're wearing it. Simply place it on your ear and Plantronics' Smart SensorTM technology automatically transfers calls to your headset. With world-class sensor and noise cancellation technology, combined with the ability to stream high-definition audio and superior comfort for an all day fit, the Voyager PRO HD is the smartest headset on the market.
Adding unparalleled convenience for the mobile professional, Plantronics InstantMeeting now connects you to conference calls from your iPhone, in addition to BlackBerry and Android phones, with just one touch. InstantMeeting scans your calendar, automatically inserts all phone numbers and passcodes, reminds you of your calls, and lets you notify participants if you are running late so you'll never miss or be late to a meeting again.
"Together with the latest release of InstantMeeting, the Voyager PRO HD provides the ideal communication solution for busy business professionals on the move," said Stuart Bradshaw, Plantronics EMEA Head of Consumer Marketing. "These intuitive products simplify communications and redefine mobile productivity so users can quickly and easily get connected and get on with their work and life."
smart sensor technology
Making and receiving calls is simpler with Smart Sensor technology in the Voyager PRO HD. The headset knows when you are wearing it so it cleverly routes calls to the headset when it's on your ear and to the handset when it's not. Voyager PRO HD also has a locking call mechanism when it is not worn to eliminate accidental calling, and you can answer incoming calls simply by putting the headset on your ear - no buttons to press, applications to open or voice commands required. Its enhanced voice alerts announce remaining talk time, connection status, battery-level and mute.
myheadsetTM app makes it easier
The Voyager PRO HD app, currently available in the Android Market, provides one-touch pairing and a sound check before you make that important call and also helps users familiarise themselves with the added functionality of the headset, such as streaming music. All the information usually found hidden inside the box is now on screen thanks to the app, such as a set-up guide and FAQs, meaning all support and guidance is at the tips of your fingers any time.
superior sound quality
Like its predecessors, Voyager PRO HD boasts award-winning sound quality, noise cancellation, and three layers of wind noise reduction technology to ensure that your voice is heard clearly regardless of the sort of environment you're in. Plantronics HD audio is for more than just answering calls, you can listen to music, follow GPS directions, or check social media platforms and email.
