I currently have z20 and going to upgrade to z70. have anyone used it yet ? I love the fact its a touchscreen and its andriod based.
I finally replaced my z20 to z70 two days ago. sorry about the delay guys .. I had it setup to replace several weeks ago but had many personal scheduling setbacks. The installer who brought it out has been very patient and was professional the whole time. I gotta say -- I am loving the new z70. first off its so much bigger then z20. much more sleek, cleaner and less office like product. the video is so MUCH better. everyone who can see me - terps, sorenson users, and z20 can see me much more clear. The features on z70 is so much better after using z20 for so many years . I love the easy android way of searching for a number that is not in my contact list locally like if i wanted pizza, i can type in pizza or say pizza just like smartvp. it has the icon for transfer calls to my phone so i can continue call from z70 to phone. the add in third party caller is there , but not enabled yet but i was told it will be coming. everything is touch screen. FYI - I have sorenson ntouch vp too, but i prefer the z70 interface.
Now the bad part - I was supposed to get firefly - it was on the order, but warehouse dept messed up but the installer quickly took care of it by making a call right there for me so its on the way. the other bad thing is i am going to miss the handset that i can pick up for vco and that makes the terps go automatically OH vco! i hate telling them i want vco. the z70 has the setup for a headset but I have to order it, its not something z can provide. sigh. so ill be researching for a headset but i dont want to look like a terp.. lol.
First -- i highly recommend getting the z70 over the pc version. it takes up less space the a laptop as you can put it i a corner. it has a much wider viewing camera and I had many callers comments on the clearness and the wiiiiiiide view they could see . when in a call - i can move my screen around with a touch of the finger and just roll it wherever i want. You know how some deafies sit on one side and i ask them to move and they naturally slip back ? no more. I just swipe my screen over to empty space on thier screen. Of course you can turn it off but i prefer not to.Awesome review! Can you set the screen to full screen without having the contacts list/phone keypad visible? (I'm still trying to figure out how to change that on the PC version). Bummer on the vco. It used to be that you could tick a box on your contacts list (in the browser) for VCO- they took that away so like you... have to inform... "VCO please". I use my DAI cord for the audio part (why I like ZVRS more over Sorenson in part- there are other reasons too).
Haven't decided whether to get it or not... no idea where I'd put it in this small space.
Yes the Z70 has VCO option- though to set to be on ALL the time you need to set that in your ZVRS profile online (I had to get the Tech team to set it because for me it wouldn't stay on the setting I changed it to- maybe my browser ). There is a way to mute/unmute on the Z70 as well.The biggest motivator for me in possibly using Z5 products is being able to have p2p calls with hearing people, and for excellent 1 line VCO. Does the Z70 deliver on that? I would be upset if VCO were not a global option. Ideally, I would have it on for all calls and have an easy way to mute and unmute.
Yes it did.. it works very well. Just have to make sure the plug is all the way in lol. It's great- haven't had an issue with that at all and works well for both VRS and P2P calls (the few that I had even though the person did not voice I could hear background noises lol)Did everything work with the Direct Audio Input (DAI) cord?
That I can't answer as I don't know. Kind of curious. My P2P calls are fine now (after Power cycling the router and modem) but my VRS calls are still a tiny bit glitchy. I don't know why. Maybe too many direct connections to the modem (a Mac, a PC and Z70- everything else is wireless).I'm wondering if there is a decent wifi wlan emulator that handles video frames well. The electrical system in my house is awful for using powerline networking gear. Besides powerline technology is limited to the circuit layout of the house.
