IFI: ClearOne To Showcase Next-Gen DSP Conferencing Platform And Beamforming Microphone Array


“There is nothing like these products on the market today,” ClearOne Senior Director of Product Line Management, Pro Voice and AV Distribution, Durai Ramachandiran said. “CONVERGE Pro 2 delivers a phenomenal user experience. Its software is highly visually enhanced, easy to configure, and optimized for installation, support, and upgrades. Working in tandem with the Beamforming Microphone Array 2, it so thoroughly redefines pro audio that audio conferencing will never sound the same again.”

Crystal-clear audio comes standard in ClearOne’s next-generation CONVERGE Pro 2 platform. Featuring the world’s most advanced audio signal processing as well as architecture that is both scalable and reliable, CONVERGE Pro 2 outperforms in any size room, any audio environment, any application.

ClearOne’s Beamforming Microphone Array 2 represents the apex of voice conferencing. Highly optimized for operation with CONVERGE Pro 2, the array comprises the industry’s most sophisticated audio beamforming as well as extraordinary audio fidelity. This mic array also incorporates the latest and most powerful algorithm for audio signal processing, as well as acoustic echo cancellation, noise cancellation, and adaptive acoustic steering, on every channel.

“We are on our second generation of beamforming conferencing technology,” said Ramachandiran.”Having already deployed nearly 4 years of installations of this wildly popular array, we are a full generation ahead of everyone else in the
industry with this technology.”

The mic array design is sleek and attractive in any environment, and the array automatically senses its own mounting position — on a wall, ceiling, table, or above a podium— to optimize audio signal processing and deliver the best possible performance. Each beamforming microphone array replaces, on average, nine to 12 tabletop or ceiling microphones, and reduces the number of mixers, along with the associated cabling.

“Companies large and small are hungry for superior audio conferencing Despite the diversity of environments — remote offices, open plans, closed plans, huddle rooms — as well as the diversity of popular PC-based UC and web conferencing applications, such as ClearOne Spontania, Cisco Webex, Citrix GotoMeeting, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Skype for Business — one thing remains the same, and that’s the desire for high-fidelity, immersive audio,” concluded Ramachandiran.
