Loft and Bose worked together to create the VB1, a videoconferencing system to simplify calls and streamline communication. We are honored to announce that the VB1 received an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA), recognizing the sleek, purpose-built design.
Between 2005 and 2017, there was a 159% increase in remote work, and with the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is estimated that a third of American employees work from home. However, due to technology constraints, they often experience meetings and conference calls as second-class citizens - unable to fully hear or see, leaving meetings feeling like they missed something. The Bose VB1 revolutionizes conference calls by delivering consistent, high-end audio and visual performance in a compact, easy to install package.
A collaboration between the Bose design team and Loft, the VB1 is the cleanest, thinnest package on the market. As a core product in the new Bose Work product line, and the first-ever camera product from Bose, the VB1’s streamlined design integrates elegantly into conference rooms without drawing unnecessary attention.
Teams that can share ideas fluidly are more collaborative and efficient, but seamless communication can be difficult to achieve with a remote workforce. The premium audio and visual capabilities of VB1 allow all meeting attendees to be fully present in the conversation, making meetings more productive (and enjoyable).
Remote work has exponential benefits to both companies and employees. For example, it offers flexibility to working parents who need to be at home, even more apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working remotely opens up opportunities for disabled individuals who have transportation constraints and for people in remote areas who can’t afford to live in a city. It also means less commuters on the road, resulting in less traffic and less environmental impact. With Loft’s design and Bose’s technology, VB1 eliminates the friction of working remotely to increase productivity and connect diverse, distributed teams.
