Introducing Yealink Phones for Video and Conference Calls
Businesses are always pushed to keep up with evolving technological landscapes. In just 20 years, we have seen multiple revolutions. Documentation has gone from primarily printed to almost exclusively digital. Communication went from in-person meetings and traditional telephones to using internet collaboration tools and smartphones. The internet itself is a completely different beast from what it was even a decade ago. Things change fast, and in order to keep up, every business needs options.
Right now, the fastest changes are in terms of direct communication. The way we conduct meetings and exchange ideas is fundamentally different from how it was even a year ago. Exploring that, we can see how technology is going to continue to drive more change. Enter Yealink phone and conferencing solutions.
The Changing Environment
We have to discuss the elephant in the room. The pandemic of 2020 has forced businesses around the world to reevaluate how they conduct themselves. Meetings are still a vital way to share ideas and come together on a plan of action, but it can be difficult to conduct a meeting when everyone is working from home or otherwise socially distancing.
Accommodating these changes has led to some predictable responses, but those responses have changed everything.
Video conferencing has skyrocketed. Apps like Zoom and Microsoft Teams are being used at a rate no one has ever seen before. It is now common for high-level employees to avoid the office as much as possible. In order to keep pace with this changing environment, you need technology that streamlines and improves the process. If you have to move your meetings to an online space, it makes sense to have specialized tools that enhance your virtual gatherings.
Yealink Phone Solutions
Yealink produces a number of specialized phones that were designed from the ground up to support virtual meetings. The phones can handle variable conference needs and provide video solutions. The conditions of the pandemic won’t have to interfere with your team’s ability to communicate, and as the world of business continues to adapt and change, you’ll be able to stay ahead of the curve. Just look at how a few of their tools can make a big difference.

Top Yealink Phone Solution Comparison
Yealink VP59 Smart Video Phone
The VP59 is a teleconferencing phone. It has a smartphone interface that attaches to a landline telephone. In short, this allows you to participate in a modern virtual meeting with the stability of a landline connection.
The 8-inch touchscreen is larger than most phone screens, which makes it easy to see what is happening in the meeting. The proprietary Yealink software allows you to stream from your laptop or desktop directly to the phone. In essence, you’re allowing a specialty device to offload the work of communication, even while you continue to rely on your personal devices for presentation.
By doing this, you can improve sound quality and connection quality. The phone line gives you more options for the transmission of information, allowing you to select the best choice. Meanwhile, the speaker technology on the phone can better capture and transmit voice and video than the average integrated webcam. You improve quality, but you don’t have to sacrifice convenience.

This is a video conference phone that is designed to accommodate multiple in-room users at the same time. It is rated to be able to clearly filter the voices of up to 20 meeting participants. In most cases, it’s more than enough.
The conference phone still features a video display that allows participants to see presentations.
