Noise-cancelling microphones and Vuzix’s patent-pending immersive stereo acoustic speakers support quality phone calls and voice/UI integration between the user and their phone.

Desktop centrepiece

Targeting homeworkers

Other World Computing (OWC), a zero emissions provider of memory, drives and docking for PCs and Macs, is targeting home workers and creative professionals with its new plug-and-play ‘digital desktop centrepiece’. The OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual with 3-port Hub combines up to 32TB of storage capacity with a built-in USB hub for connecting and charging any USB-equipped Mac, PC, mobile device or accessory.

Added to the fold

Samsung has unveiled the third generation of its Galaxy Z foldable device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G features a 6.2in edge-to-edge cover screen that lets you check email, look up directions or view content at a glance and, when unfolded, a 7.6in cinematic main screen, with minimised bezels, notch-less front camera and a 120Hz adaptable refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gameplay.



By the book

ExaClair has added a Track & Trace Log Book to its Guildhall notebook and filing range to help businesses capture staff and visitor information needed for the NHS Test & Trace system, including name, contact number, date, arrival and departure times, group size and on-premises contacts.

Employee mapping

Office Maps

OfficeMaps has added new features to its interactive workspace management tool to help employers maintain social distancing in offices. These include the ability to block desks on an office map so that the others can be allocated in a Covid-secure fashion; a contact tracing feature that shows who is in the office at any time, where they have been and who they have had contact with; occupancy statistics; a sanitiser station locator; and a colleague locator that gives the current working location of employees.

Clean hotels

Rydoo has added a Clean & Safe tag to the hotel booking function of its business travel and expenses app, Rydoo Travel, enabling users to view safety information provided by listed hotels, including their cleaning practices, physical distancing measures and food & drink protocols.

Who’s available?

Xerox’s new Team Availability App helps businesses manage a flexible workforce by monitoring the availability and location of employees. Xerox says that unlike other attendance management tools, which need to plug into IT infrastructure and can take weeks to implement, its GDPR-compliant SaaS offering is ready in just hours. The Team Availability App is available on the App Store and Google Play Store.

Bridge to the future

Toshiba TEC e-STUDIO330AC-

Toshiba Tec is meeting demand for more productive A4 colour MFPs with the launch of the e-STUDIO330AC (33 pages per minute) and the e-STUDIO400AC (40ppm). Part of Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE Next range, the new models feature a self-encrypting Secure HDD and a 10.1-inch tablet-style touchscreen with a customisable user interface and one-touch activation of complex multi-step processes. The MFPs can be fully integrated with third party solutions and cloud services via an embedded web browser and a growing range of Toshiba e-BRIDGE Plus productivity apps.

New colours

EPOS has updated its EPOS I SENNHEISER GSP 600 range of wired closed acoustic gaming headsets with new colour palettes. Providing high audio fidelity and exceptional realism for gaming sessions, the GSP 601 and GSP 602 feature the same ergonomic design as earlier models but with dramatic new colours – white features, black accents and interchangeable copper-coloured side plates on the GSP 601 and glossy navy blue elements and brandy-coloured ear pads on the GSP 602.

Smarter listening

Sony has enhanced its 1000X family of over-ear wireless noise cancelling headphones with smart listening technology that senses what you are doing (e.g. walking, driving a car, at the gym, on a train, in a café) and automatically adjusts ambient sound for the best listening experience. Other useful features of the £350 WH-1000XM4 are: Speak-to-Chat, which lets you have short conversations (e.g. order a coffee) with your headphones on – the music stops automatically when you speak and re-starts once you’ve stopped talking; and ‘Quick Attention’, which lets you reduce volume instantly by placing your hand over the right earcup. The headphones also support 360 Reality Audio for a more immersive experience.
