With a Broad Line of Solutions for Media Collaboration, Professional Audio, Unified Communications, and Multimedia Streaming and Signage – ClearOne Continues to Lead the Pro AV Industry with Proven Performance and Innovation
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (July 31, 2014) – ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) has been named by TMCnet™ as the recipient of the 2014 Communications Product of the Year Award for its revolutionary Beamforming Microphone Array. One of TMC’s most coveted awards, the Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award honors exceptional products and services that facilitate voice, data, and video communications that were recently brought to market.
ClearOne’s Beamforming Microphone Array is the world’s first professional-grade directional microphone array with beamforming and adaptive steering technology, and ClearOne’s next-generation Acoustic Echo Cancellation. The ultra-sleek design fits into any conferencing environment and adaptively delivers the ultimate in voice pick-up precision and quality. Twenty-four microphone elements steer acoustic pick-up patterns towards participants, rejecting unwanted noise and reflections, and offering superb, unmatched voice audio performance. The array seamlessly interfaces with ClearOne CONVERGE® Pro products, and supports Power-over-Ethernet operation.
Recently, as another first from ClearOne, the Beamforming Microphone Array was updated to operate with ClearOne’s COLLABORATE® Room Pro all-in-one, high-definition, 1080p60 video appliance, to deliver the best audio available from any self-contained media collaboration solution. This integrated solution, available with a nine-party MCU, includes many tools that would usually be purchased separately, such as streaming, recording, content creation, presentation, and in a future free software upgrade – wireless projection and interactive white boarding.
