What’s New from Dynabook, Virgin Media, Konftel, Flipside AV, Sensedia & Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise

Made for hybrid work

Dynabook Europe is extending its X-series range of ultraportables with the launch of the Portégé X40L-K. Described as the perfect companion for hybrid working, the 14in device offers a combination of premium features that allow employees to collaborate, connect and switch seamlessly between the physical and online worlds. Its AV features, for example, include four premium stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound and 360-degree dual-array microphones that pick up voices equally from all directions. This allows the user to roam around a room, while also enabling the X40L-K to serve as a hub for multi-person conference calls. AI Noise Reduction filters out background noise to ensure participants can be heard clearly, while an AI camera delivers lighting correction, background blurring and face framing irrespective of the conferencing platform used.



Partner success

Virgin Media Business Wholesale, the wholesale connectivity arm of Virgin Media O2 Business, is introducing a dedicated Partner Success team to support partners throughout the customer journey, from onboarding, quoting and ordering to in-life changes and renewals. Aaron Briant, Head of Wholesale Operations at Virgin Media O2 Business, said: “The way the wholesale connectivity channel does business is becoming less transactional and more consultative, and partners across the industry are facing more bespoke requests from their customer base. They need greater support from their suppliers to meet their individual needs. Our new dedicated Partner Success team is here to ensure we create the right environment and support model to foster mutual growth and success.”


The Konftel C50800 Attach video kit

Adding flavour

Konftel has launched a range of five video kits optimised for Microsoft Teams Rooms, Zoom Rooms and in-room PC-based systems from the likes of Lenovo and Dell. With options to suit all sizes of meeting room, Konftel Attach kits bring together conference cameras, speakerphones and a long USB cable (up to 10m). Konftel Product Manager Torbjörn Karlsson said: “A typical in-room solution has a main computer, which is controlled via a touch panel or wireless keyboard and mouse, connected to a display screen. Users can ‘add more flavour’ by combining a high quality Konftel camera and audio with a long audio cable that maximises speakerphone placement.”



Introducing Flipside AV

London-based systems integrator Flipside Soundsystem has changed its name to Flipside AV after closing down its rental business to focus purely on installed AV projects. MD James Cooper said: “This name change is the result of a gradual shift in our priorities at Flipside. As we have evolved as a company, the AV installation side of the business has gone from strength to strength and become the main driver for where we see our future.” Alongside the name change, Flipside AV has redesigned its website to provide a clear explanation of the services it offers, the solutions it provides and the venues that it serves.

Easy access

Sensedia’s API management platform and professional consulting services are now available from AWS Marketplace, after the multinational API technology company became a member of the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN). Sensedia co-founder and Chief of Growth Marcilio Oliveira said: “Sensedia’s integration into AWS Marketplace emerges from the increasingly global consumption of APIs, prompted by API-led businesses, such as digital banking, food delivery and mobility apps, wallets, e-commerce and insurance tech ecosystems. By using API management in the cloud, they can integrate systems and share data to create new digital business models, giving them more operational agility and revenue growth.”


Connecting larger audiences

Better connected

(ALE) is adding Wi-Fi 6E access points to its OmniAccess Stellar portfolio to connect larger audiences in dense environments and to meet the demands of bandwidth-heavy applications like augmented/virtual reality, 4K/8K UltraHD video and medical IoT. ALE is introducing a high-end premium Wi-Fi 6E Access Point in September, followed by a mid-range access point by the end of the year. Wi-Fi 6E extends Wi-Fi into the 6 GHz band, adding a substantial amount of unlicensed spectrum to address the exponential expansion of connected devices.
