Silicon Review Article- Providing the most reliable voice and visual communication solutions to the world: ClearOne
In PART I, we looked at the overall state of happiness in the workplace. Now, we look at the ways in which to exploit your capacity for happiness…
It’s easy to see video conferencing and collaboration as the “next step” in communications, something beyond the world of audio conferencing. However, the truth is, a video conference is only as good as its audio. The occasional dropped frame or even severe video issues can still be forgiven in a conference without interrupting the flow.
Here at ClearOne, we strive for an environment that supports happy employees in a team atmosphere…the way we come together to produce exceptional products. Our Spain office has taken some great steps implementing fun concepts to further this goal that we’d like to share with you in this multi-part series.
Can a conference room truly be “intelligent,” to accommodate your connection, communication, and collaboration needs? Does such a conference room actually exist?
A conference room has to accommodate people at different levels, different skill sets, with different types of connection and communication needs – it could be a local connection point to locally present from your own device, or to bridge someone at a remote location for audio/video conferencing. The life of a conference room is always busy…it must be set up efficiently to accommodate a variety of user needs. This new conference room model has become known in the industry as the “all-in-one conference room”.
The answer is: very probably. In 2016 the FCC intended to sell off 128 MHz of spectrum from 700 MHz all the way down to 572 MHz. And they started the initial auction of licenses in that spectrum in March 2016.
However the sky is falling very slowly at this point; due to disagreement between the sellers and buyers as to how much the 600 MHz licenses are worth. The sellers are broadcasters who use the spectrum for Digital Television Stations. The buyers are companies such as mobile carriers who want to add more subscribers and new services on this prime piece of RF Real estate.
InfoComm 2016 was the setting for a big announcement – the next generation of ClearOne’s flagship Pro Audio DSP product family, CONVERGE® Pro. The product name was already familiar across the AV industry, and it was important to retain this well-known name across the new group of SKUs. CONVERGE Pro had become synonymous with the term “Audio DSP mixer” for most AV practitioners. CONVERGE Pro 2 was now on the scene, with many new features and options, and the importance of naming conventions came to the forefront, to avoid confusion and make the transition as smooth as possible.
