Intuitively and Smoothly
Easy connection so you're ready to go
Start your Skype for Business meeting by connecting your YVC-1000MS with a single USB connection. Don't have your laptop with you? The user-friendly design provides fast, intuitive connection to a smartphone by Bluetooth®.No matter how you connect, the specially engineered auto-tuning function developed by Yamaha detects and monitors the acoustics of the environment to optimize sound processing for the best audio experience on Skype for Business meeting.
Stable and Comfortable
Optimized sound for natural, comfortable Skype for Business meeting experience
The sound is also optimized using high-quality sound technologies that Yamaha has developed over the years, including a unique Human Voice Activity Detection (HVAD) capability used to detect human voices. "HVAD" is an important element of several different sound processing features that require fast and efficient sorting and helps minimize background noise during calls.
Yamaha's unique sound optimization technologies
"Adaptive echo canceller" – Delivering the clarity essential to efficient business communication
"Automatic tracking" – Focusing on what's important
The YVC-1000MS utilizes a Automatic tracking function that allows it to detect and track the location of a person's voice in order to provide the clearest sound pickup possible. The ability to distinguish human voices from random background noise is particularly useful in conferences held in noisy environments with a large number of participants.
"Automatic gain control" – Ensuring that everyone can hear and be heard
This function automatically boosts or attenuates the gain for individual voices depending on their level and distance from the microphone. Automatic gain control utilizes HVAD technology to ensure that only human voices are amplified, providing clear and concise communications even in noisy environments.
"Noise reduction" – Reducing noise for clearer communication
The noise reduction function suppresses or eliminates unwanted sounds emitted from sources such as projectors and air conditioners. Continuous noise is removed from ambient sound picked up by the microphones in order to ensure that listeners hear only clear, intelligible voices.
"Dereverberation" – Clear, reverb-free sound
Naturally occurring reverberation can often wreak havoc on sound quality in remote conferencing situations. Offering excellent vocal clarity even in spaces subject to excessive natural reverb, the YVC-1000MS suppresses the reverberation caused by the varying sonic characteristics of different environments.
"Automatic room EQ" – The right sound for your room
Automatic room EQ optimizes speaker output in real time to match the dimensions and acoustic properties of any room. Audio quality is adjusted automatically based on the audio signal of the current call to provide a more listenable tone and even reduce unwanted echoing.

Images of sound pickup range （within 3 m (9.8 ft), to a maximum recommended range of 5 m (16.4 ft). *per microphone）
- The sound pickup range may differ depending on the operating environment and conditions.
- Sound quality improves when the person speaking is closer to the microphone.
- For the "Microphone x 3" and "Microphone x 5" configurations shown above, audio quality is superior in the "Microphone x 5" configuration as the microphones are placed closer to the participants.
What is the difference between YVC-1000MS and YVC-1000?
The YVC-1000MS is a version of the YVC-1000 that is certified for Skype for Business.
Sound and Microphone mute action is optimized for Skype for Business. It has the same functionality as the YVC-1000 but with a specific button for call pickup and hangup ("call button"), and a different firmware load because of that. (The call button replaces the tuning fork button. Auto-tuning is still available by pressing that new button in a defined sequence.)
