In this episode of Ditch the Box I show you the new Microsoft Teams phone from Crestron – the UC-P8-T. The phone itself features a huge 8″ colour touch screen (1280×800), dual GbE and built in WiFi, Integrated Bluetooth 5.0 and a single USB-C port for optional headset support. It runs on Android 9.0 and runs on PoE or mains power.
And it runs the native Teams desk phone client. The built-in speakerphone has 2 MEMS Mic array with 360 degree pickup.
It also features a built-in Person in Range (PIR) detector to detect movement at up to 2m distance to detect people in proximity.
Management via web UI and Crestron XiO Cloud. User input is via the capacitive touch screen as well as a touch sensitive control bar which includes a Teams button.
