CS-800 and CS-500 enhance the experience of remote meetings with advanced audio and video features. Yamaha's SoundCap Eye™ technology allows the use of CS-500/800 in open spaces, significantly expanding the range of locations that can be used for high-quality remote collaboration. They are certified for Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Barco ClickShare, ensuring users that the units work seamlessly with the most popular platforms.

Available as a free download, the latest version 1.2 firmware adds new features for batch firmware update over a network (via Wi-Fi) and batch import of configuration files, allowing the configuration of multiple units in the CS series with the same settings. These features have been added in response to customer requests, saving time and facilitating maintenance for system administrators, thus reducing costs through centralized system management.

For users, the new firmware improves the image quality of the CS-800 and CS-500 cameras. The Smart Framing function has been enhanced, automatically zooming in on the interlocutor's facial expressions. More subtle differences in expressions can be captured, allowing for more precise emotion calibration from the image and enabling even more personal, friendly, and lively discussions. Improvements have also been made to Face Focus Beamforming and Self-Silence, allowing for smoother communication from open spaces.


Along with the improvements in firmware V1.2, Yamaha has announced a more competitive price, with the CS-500 now having a suggested retail price (SRP) of €499.00 (excl. VAT) and the CS-800 an SRP of €649.00 (excl. VAT).


With the latest firmware, we have made real improvements to the video conferencing and collaboration experience for CS series users, while making Yamaha's advanced technology even more accessible with a price revision. System management via WiFi and certification from major platforms make the CS-500 and CS-800 an even more attractive choice for IT administrators and anyone in need of high-quality remote collaboration, even in open spaces, states Marcus-Michael Müller, Sales and Marketing UC Director at Yamaha Music Europe.
