Feel Together Again

Bringing High Quality Bose Audio To Professional Settings

The Bose Videobar™ VB1 is an all-in-one USB conferencing device that brings premium audio and video to small meeting areas — from huddle spaces to medium-sized rooms. Be seen clearly. Be heard and understood fully. Six beam-steering microphones automatically focus on voices in the room and reject noise. A 4K ultra-HD camera with autoframing delivers crystal-clear video, helping remote participants feel like they’re in the room. Proprietary Bose sound supports multimedia presentations, plays Bluetooth® audio, and ensures voices on the call sound natural. Single-cable connectivity means there’s no need for separate audio and video cables at the table, reducing clutter. Whether it’s a quick morning check-in or a full-afternoon workshop, the Bose Videobar™ VB1 helps you huddle up, see more, hear more, and work better.

Bose VB1 Videobar FAQ

The default password for the Bose VB1 Videobar is Bose123. You will have to enter this password the first time you log into the Bose VB1 Videobar. 

First mount the VB1 Videobar mount onto the wall below your room display, make sure the mount is 38mm below the display. Then flip the metal handles on the back of the videobar and screw them onto the mount. Once the videobar is mounted securely to the mount then you can push the bar back into place.

The VB1 uses 3 protocols over USB: Universal Audio Class (UAC), Universal Video Class (UVC), and DisplayLink. If you have a device that supports these protocols, the audio, video, and video pass-thru may work. We only support Windows, MacOS and ChromeOS devices. Linux devices should all work fine too but we won’t officially support them.

Both, all configuration is available through the USB and Network interfaces

Some country energy regulations require products like the VB1 to save energy by entering a low-power mode when they are not in use. The VB1 supports and meets these requirements. And yes, it is easy to override by setting Low Power Mode switch to OFF in Bose Work Configuration or Management.

The VB1 has two levels of energy savings, standby and low-power standby. Both are disabled if the low power mode switch is set to OFF. If low power mode is set to ON, the VB1 will enter standby mode after 18 minutes of inactivity. If no activity occurs for 2 hours, it will enter low-power standby. You will notice it is in standby or low power-standby as the white led below the logo will be off.

See the first column below for activities that prevent the VB1 from entering standby. After 18 minutes without any of these activities, the VB1 enters standby. At this point, any of the same activities will wake up the VB1 from Standby or by plugging in USB (see column 2 below). If none of the activities occur for 2 hours, the VB1 enters low-power standby. At this point, the VB1 requires and on-device button press, an IR remote command or USB to be plugged in to wake up

No, you can use VB1 with your favorite meeting software just by selecting the VB1 as the camera and speakers/microphones. You only need DisplayLink installed on your PC if you want to take advantage of our “one cable meeting” feature where, in addition to the camera and speaker/microphones, we also use the single USB cable for room video (utilizing the HDMI out on the VB1.)

By default, Autoframing is turned off. The icon between the 1 and 2 on the remote turns it on/off. You will hear an ‘affirmative’ tone when it turns on and a ‘negative’ tone when it turns off. During a call you will see a small green bar on the LED bar when the auto-framing is off and a wider green bar when auto-framing is on.

The anti -flicker setting is used to synchronize the camera image sensor sampling with the local power line frequency

No, the VB1 doesn’t have group autoframing. Talker framing may be added in a future later release.

Autoframing always frames the people in the room so it will constantly adjust as needed. The pan and zoom remain where they were last set.

Not independently but it does follow the state requested by the UC app for the new meeting.

The beam tracking algorithm is always looking for the most energy in the room and if it determines a location of high energy is mostly voice content (300Hz to 3kHz) it will allocate a narrow beam to that location.

Yes, the VB1 includes AEC. For UC clients which the VB1 is certified, the UC AEC will be disabled automatically

The only way to recover a password is to “factory reset” the device at which point the default password (Bose123!) will be reestablished. To perform a factory reset do one of the following:

Press and hold both the Mute and Bluetooth buttons on the side of the unit for > 5s.
Press and hold the Home and Autoframe buttons on the IR remote for > 8s.

No, but you do have to download the Bose Work Configuration app to access the product via USB. Alternatively, and especially for ChromeOS users, you can access the VB1 configuration via its built-in WebUI by typing the IP address into a browser.

Microsoft Teams: AEC and audio processing are disabled within Teams, mic mute and call status are synchronized.
Zoom: AEC is disabled, microphone mute and call status LED synchronization are enabled, and camera controls are added to Zoom Rooms.
Google Meet: AEC is disabled, camera controls are added to the Meet Room. Google also enables voice control (“Hey Google…”) support.

The solid white light bar indicates the PC is in a meeting or Bluetooth call. For applications for which the VB1 is certified, e.g., Teams, the VB1 knows it is in a call and will show this on the lightbar.
