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.
