ClearOne Invites Telecom Agents, Managed Service Providers And Value Added Resellers To Channel Partners Conference In Las Vegas For Video Conferencing As A Service (VCaaS) Opportunities

 

Spontania: Pioneering the way business can visually meet & collaborate from any device.

 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 15, 2015) – ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) a global provider of audio and visual communication solutions showcases Spontania, as the new face of B2B media collaboration along with their Connections Partner Program, at the 2015 Channel Partners Conference in Las Vegas, Booth #1120, March 16-18.

 

Fueled by the shift in the way people work and the desire to provide an affordable and simple cloud-based collaboration service, ClearOne Spontania has the potential to turn almost any device into a high quality, low-cost video conferencing & collaboration tool with the ability to chat face-to-face anytime, from anywhere. Spontania supports multiple OSs and devices – Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android as well as integration with legacy videoconferencing systems.

 

According to Kent Terpe, ClearOne Agent Channel Consultant, “Spontania breaks all the rules on price, features, functionality and ease of use. Now businesses of any size can leverage an affordable solution with enterprise-grade video conferencing & collaboration capabilities through the cloud. The ClearOne Spontania cloud is a much more flexible VCaaS solution than expensive on-site systems and is a future-proof investment that businesses can build on that delivers advanced functionality and scalability without the upfront hardware and installation costs.”

 

Key features include:

  • Real time collaboration
  • HD videoconferencing
  • Full-duplex VoIP
  • Document sharing
  • White boarding
  • Session recording
  • Bandwidth management
  • Video streaming
  • End-to-end encryption, and much more

Looking ahead, all signs point to increasing adoption of VCaaS. Industry analysts suggest a future where customers will be investing less on high-end, expensive room systems and looking for more efficient collaboration strategies such as adoption of low cost group room appliances and scalable cloud-based services to support deployments of desktops and mobile users. “In fact, TechNavio’s analysts forecast the global cloud-based video conferencing market to grow at a CAGR of 39.06 percent over the period 2014-2019 making VCaaS an exciting opportunity for telecom agents, managed service providers, and value added resellers to jump on the next growth wagon,” states Terpe.

 

Spontania puts all the benefits of voice and video communications and content collaboration within anyone’s reach, while removing the technology barriers and high costs. Whether you’re an agent, value added reseller, or service provider interested in adding Spontania to your portfolio to add product differentiation, the transition path to develop the expertise, build a profitable business, and drive additional revenue is central to ClearOne’s partner strategy.

 

ClearOne’s Connections Program comes in two flavors depending on your business model and anticipated volume levels.

 

The Company’s white label service platform offers resellers their own service with their own brand for their own customers, with high profit margins. The Agent Program is aimed at jump starting an agent’s entry into the rapidly growing VCaaS market, while earning the most generous commissions in the industry. And as a key differentiator, ClearOne does not sell direct and always supports the channel approach, ensuring that our partners maintain their relationships with their customers.

 

As part of ClearOne’s “Experience Spontania” promotion, agents, service providers and resellers interested in adding Spontania to their product mix, are urged to stop by ClearOne’s booth #1120 to see what all the “buzz” is about and to pick up their permit to take a 30 day test drive.

MagicBox® Digital Signage Platform Wins Best Software Product at ISE Integration Show from rAVe

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 10, 2015) – ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) has won the Best Digital Signage Software award for its MagicBox WebSuite digital signage content management platform from rAVe at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Amsterdam.

 

“It is an honor to be recognized by rAVe Publications for Best Digital Signage Software Product at ISE 2015,” said Tom Searcy, Vice President for Digital Signage Products at ClearOne. “Our turnkey, web-based offerings are available in either an on-premise server or hosted (SaaS) configuration.  MagicBox’ WebSuite Software is simple to use and comes with free online training and support with a focus on creating a solution with a low total cost of ownership.” One of the biggest challenges of digital signage is not the hardware or software, it’s making a system easy enough to use that the customer with little training can create high impact content and present it to the right audience at the right time.” WebSuite is designed to work in conjunction with the ClearOne VIEW® Pro Streaming Encoders and Decoders. This gives customers an end-to-end solution for content creation, playback, and distribution of IP video.

ClearOne Releases New, Economical VIEW® Pro Decoder: High-Quality Network Media Streaming Solution

ClearOne Releases New, Economical VIEW® Pro Decoder: High-Quality Network Media Streaming Solution

 

Lower Cost Addition to VIEW Pro Family of Encoders and Decoders Broadens the Company’s Line of Professional Media Streaming Solutions,/b>

 

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), will soon be shipping its new value-priced VIEW® Pro D210 decoder that enables high-quality, low-latency media streaming over existing IP networks.

 

This cost-efficient network device from ClearOne is the ideal solution for less-demanding deployments such as digital signage applications where common content is repeated over multiple displays and may not need professional-level audio amplification, or third-party equipment control. Such applications include displays at airports and transportation hubs, hotels, casinos, and shopping malls.

 

“By pushing our technology to the edge of the network, the VIEW Pro media streaming solution eliminates the need for costly hardware switching and the limitations of cabling,” said Michael Braithwaite, ClearOne’s Sr. Vice President of the Multimedia Streaming Business. “Streaming media over TCP/IP provides significant improvements in flexibility, scalability, price, and performance over traditional AV streaming and distribution methods.”

 

The newest addition to the ClearOne line of professional streaming components, the economical D210 decoder, incorporates some of the same performance features as the larger VIEW Pro D110 decoder including 1080p60, H.264 high-definition HDMI video-audio, and 4:4:4 true-color output – the platinum standard for color. It is an attractive compact device that can be easily mounted behind any display.

 

Complementing the VIEW Pro System, VIEW Virtual Matrix Software displays a simple view of the entire networked media system on a single screen, and provides simple source and destination selection and control options in Windows, Android, and iOS for StreamNet® encoders and decoders. Users have control access from any number of input devices, including wall touch-screens, desktops, laptops, and handheld devices.

 

With the addition of this economical decoder, ClearOne continues to be truly differentiated in the professional market by offering complete AV streaming and distribution systems that can scale to fulfill projects of any size and complexity, from light commercial to the very largest environments. ClearOne’s media streaming solutions deliver agility, flexibility, and scalability for networked media of all types.

Are You Ahead of the Curve?

Ahead of the Curve with Cloud-Based Services?

 

Daniel L. Newman’s Commercial Integrator article paints a clear picture about our every-changing AV industry and the need to see the changes coming even before the movement begins.

 

Despite the access customers now have with web collaboration and video solutions, it hardly means integration and support are a thing of the past – it doesn’t mean professionally-installed systems themselves are going the way of the dinosaur. Rather it’s the approach and the way business is done that is on the move. Those integrators that can embrace the changes of cloud and mobile will be successful for the future.

 

The “Cloud” is a giant step for everyone. Clients need support now more than ever, to understand the way in which cloud-and mobile-based apps can be used to improve collaboration without a huge learning curve and without D-I-Y setup pitfalls. The key is the new business model, changing from up-front installation investments to recurring monthly revenue.  If you’ve been building this into your business, you’re set. If not, it’s time to make the transition.

 

Big-ticket items are still a reality, but the key is to start replacing what will eventually be disappearing revenue. Mobile and BYOD are serious industry movements, not trendy distractions. It is still all about collaboration – the business problem that affects the company bottom line. As the article states, it’s time to align yourself with partners who also have a long-term outlook with the adoption of new business models.

ClearOne Selected as Exclusive Video Collaboration Technology Provider for the 2014-2015 Barcelona World Race

 

Spontania carrier-grade cloud-based video collaboration software is being deployed for critical communications in the non-stop, around the world regatta

 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (December 11, 2014) – ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), a world leader in voice and visual communication solutions, has signed a sponsorship agreement with the organizers of the Barcelona World Race, the first and only two crew member per boat, non-stop, around the world regatta. ClearOne will facilitate essential communications for the race through its Spontania cloud collaboration solution.

The Barcelona World Race, which takes place every four years, has consistently raised the bar with every edition since it began in 2007. It’s a non-stop regatta around the world from west to east, with eight boats sailing a route of approximately 23,000 miles in roughly three months. The competition begins on December 31, 2014, and is expected to finish near the end of March, 2015, with participants relying on the Spontania carrier-grade cloud service to provide reliable video connections from numerous remote high seas locations with severe connectivity challenges. Spontania automatically adapts to any environment to deliver reliable communications from anywhere.

 

“Imagine this: ocean-going yachts are fighting their way around the globe for 90 days in one of the planet’s most difficult technology challenges – and are able to successfully establish and maintain high-quality voice and video connections from some of the world’s most remote sites,” said Peter Nutley, ClearOne’s Director of Global Product Marketing for Media Collaboration and Network Streaming. “We are demonstrating in an extreme, live environment that Spontania is the world’s most robust, flexible, and innovative cloud-based voice and video solution of its kind.”

 

Spontania’s carrier-grade service empowers customers to deploy video collaboration without the heavy burden of expensive infrastructure. It also allows service providers and partners to expand their offerings by deploying the technology within their own networks, building on ClearOne technology to further their current solutions and offerings. Today, fifteen global telecommunications carriers have deployed Spontania, with a half dozen more planning to adopt it in the future.

 

Dozens to thousands of users can collaborate over Spontania in real-time, sharing high-quality voice, video, and data on any device they choose – from cell phones and satellite phones to standards-based group networking systems. It is the most powerful cloud collaboration service available, with the industry’s richest feature set.

About the Barcelona World Race

The Barcelona World Race is the world’s only double-handed, non-stop, round the world regatta. It is part of the IMOCA Ocean Masters World Championship. It was created by Barcelona’s ocean sailing foundation, the Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona (FNOB) and is their flagship project. In just two editions (2007/08 and 2010/11) the competition has established itself as an international benchmark for ocean sailing.

 

In addition to the event’s sporting prestige, the Barcelona World Race is a magnificent visibility platform for the FNOB’s numerous initiatives and projects. Since 2005, when the foundation was set up with the support of its patrons; Barcelona City Council, the Exhibition Centre, the Port Authorities and the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, it has been heavily involved in developing and promoting socioeconomic activities with links to sport, industry and the core values of sailing along four key lines: R+D, Education and Knowledge, Science and Technology and the Environment.

 

The third edition of the regatta sets off on the 31st of December 2014. The pontoons where the nine expected entries will be tied up, situated at the end of the famous Ramblas, under the watchful eye of the Christopher Columbus statue, will be officially opened on the 12th of December 2014.
