  • Hear and Be Heard
    Adobe connect, GoTo Meeting, Google Hangouts, Skype and similar VoIP services offer up plenty of features and convenience for remote meetings. If you have a computer or tablet, you have the ability to teleconference. But one aspect of the experience often comes up short: sound quality from your device's built-in speaker and microphone. Common complaints include:
    The speaker's not loud enough. Laptop and tablet speakers are design for personal use, and so they're often not loud enough for a room full of people, even at maximum volume.
    The mic's only designed for one person. Built-in microphones can only capture the closest person's voice clearly. As a consequence, everyone in the meeting feels they need to yell and/or crowd around the microphone, rather than sitting comfortably.
    Echo noise. Very frequently, the person on the other end of the teleconference hears their own voice because their voice is played and then recorded into the mic again. This can really put a strain on comprehensibility during a meeting, leading to people needing to repeat what they just said. Plus, it's extremely annoying!
    These issues interrupt, slow, and add frustration to remote meetings. But all of these issues can be overcome with the IPEVO VX-1 Internet Conference Station, the perfect complement to your VoIP usage. With VX-1's superior voice capture and transmission, everyone can hear, and everyone can be heard.
  • A Superior Audio Experience, Top to Bottom
    VX-1 utilizes outstanding noise reduction and echo cancellation technology, thanks to a special 16-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) with built-in hardware acceleration. This DSP features 16 kHz sampling rate signal processing for exceptional echo cancellation and adaptive noise suppression. The result is crystal-clear voice transmission on both ends of the conversation.
    One standard side effect of DSP is that it distorts voices, making transmitted voices too flat, too high, or otherwise different-sounding than the speaker's natural voice. This is a common flaw in many conference stations on the market. To compensate for this DSP effect, VX-1 features another specialized sound processor that enhances, clarifies, and smoothes voices. This includes rich reproduction of both low frequencies and high frequencies across a wide dynamic range. So whether low pitch, high pitch, male or female, all voices are optimized and clearly intelligible. The days of straining to hear (or making guesses) about what the other person is saying are over.
    Additionally, VX-1 is a full duplex system, meaning that both sides can communicate at the same time — just as if you were in the same room. This is in contrast to half-duplex, where only one side can speak at a time.
  • Two Sound Modes and 5 Built-in Microphones
    VX-1 features a total of 5 built-in microphones to address any configuration of people around the device. The default microphone is the Omni Mic which receives sound evenly in a 360-degree range, making it ideal for capturing the voices of all participants positioned anywhere around VX-1. The difference you'll perceive between the Omni Mic and your computer's built-in microphone will be dramatic.
    The Omni Mic has a an optimal pick-up range of 6.5 feet.
    The maximum pick-up range is 13 feet.
    VX-1 also features a Zone Enhanced Mode that uses directional microphones. This mode is designed for maximum reduction of unwanted environmental noise. In Zone Enhanced Mode, one of four unidirectional mics (Uni Mics) is active. Mics are easily selectable with the Zone Enhancement button. Uni Mics have a longer range and higher sensitivity than the Omni Mic, and they primarily receive sound coming from one direction. In fact, they're specifically tuned to exclude sound coming from other directions.
    Each Unidirectional Mic has an optimal pick-up range of 10 feet.
    The maximum pick-up range is 16 feet.
  • An Intuitive Design and Simple, Straightforward Controls
    With its elegant and modern circular shape, VX-1 is an eye-catching addition to the office that can be placed anywhere on the desk or table. It looks and behaves like people expect it to, so there's never any confusion for guests using the station. And with VX-1, you don't need to return to the computer or hunt around in the VoIP application to change basic audio settings. The station features three frequently-used buttons as well as easy to understand status LEDs.
  • Turn Your iDevice Into a Conference Station
    iDevices feature countless ways to communicate remotely, including free voice chat apps as well as good old-fashioned number dialing on iPhone. Whenever your group has a remote meeting, don't crowd around the iPad or awkwardly pass the iPhone around. Simply connect your iDevice to VX-1 via the included 3.5mm audio cable. Plug the cable into your iDevice's audio jack and you have an instant, professional-level conference station.
  • Plug-and-Play Right Out of the Box
    With VX-1, there's no need to hassle with installing drivers or extra software. Simply plug VX-1 into your PC, Mac or iDevice (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) and launch your preferred conferencing software. Or, if using the iPhone, just place a call like you usually do. VX-1 automatically becomes your default speaker and microphone.
  • Compatible with Most VoIP Applications
    VX-1 is compatible with a wide variety of chat and conference applications llike Adobe connect, GoToMeeting, WebEx, Google Hangouts, Join Me, Skype, TeamViewer, Facetime and many more. No matter what VoIP service you use, chances are the VX-1 can deliver immediate results for your next remote meeting.

    User Manual


    Q: I've turned the volume knob all the way up but still find the speaker volume is far too low and difficult to hear.
    A: Please check if your system or messaging app volume is set to too low. You can increase the volume to mid or high and adjust the green knob on VX-1 to find a clear volume for your conferencing need. Please also check if the remote party is having the microphone recording volume set to too low. If so, please ask them to increase record volume or turn on microphone gain.
    Q: The person I am calling cannot hear me.
    A: 1. Your microphone is set to Mute. If the LED indicators on VX-1 are red then your Microphones are currently muted. Press the red mute button to unmute. If the indicators are green please check to see that your microphone has not been muted on your iDevice or Computer.
    2. The person you are calling has set their speaker on mute. Please ask them to unmute their speaker
    3. The person you are calling has set their speaker volume too low. Please ask them to increase the speaker volume.
    4. Make sure you have selected VX-1’s microphone as the active microphone in your software or application (PC/Mac only).
    5. Your microphone sensitivity is set to low. Please adjust the microphone sensitivity to high. VX-1’s default microphone sensitivity is set to high, so you should only need to adjust sensitivity if you have adjusted it before (PC/Mac only).
    Q: No sound is coming from the speaker.
    A: Please check the following:
    1. The speaker is on Mute. Please check your Computer or iDevice settings to make sure you have not selected mute.
    2. The person you are calling has their microphone on mute. Please ask them to unmute their microphone.
    3. The speaker volume is set too low, please increase the volume. You can do this by turning the Green knob clockwise or by adjusting the volume on your Computer/iDevice.
    4. The person you are calling has their microphone sensitivity set to low. Please ask them to set their microphone sensitivity to high.
    5. Make sure you have selected VX-1’s speaker as the active speaker in your software or application (PC/Mac only).
    Q: If my Computer and iDevice are both plugged into VX-1, can I make calls using my Computer?
    A: No. VX-1 will automatically switch to your iDevice if you have plugged in the 3.5mm audio cable. If you wish to use your Computer to make calls please unplug the 3.5mm audio cable from VX-1.
    Q: Does VX-1 remember my Mic settings?
    A: VX-1 will remember which Mic setting was selected before you pressed mute and will revert to the previous setting when you unmute. However, VX-1 will only remember your mic settings for the current session.
    Q: Why is the sound quality better when making calls using the internet/WiFi versus making calls using a cellphone network?
    A: When you use the internet to make a call the sound sampling rate is higher (16k Hz) than when you make a call using a cellphone network (8K Hz). This is why sound quality is better when you call using the internet. The reason for the low sampling rate is because when you make a call through your cellphone network it passes through the public switched telephone network (PSTN), to save bandwidth they lower the sampling rate.
