As part of our ongoing commitment to provide commercial AV integrators with solutions that are easy to adopt and integrate into all of their AV system designs, we recently engaged Control Concepts, a leading AV software and services provider, to create a suite of AMX, Crestron and Extron control platform modules for our new CONVERGE® Pro 2 series of DSP Mixers, which we believe are the industry’s most advanced professional audio DSP platform for conferencing and sound reinforcement applications.
Control Concepts was uniquely positioned to support us in this capacity because of their ability to deliver a consistent solution across multiple control systems platforms precisely because they are an authorized solutions provider of Crestron, AMX, and Extron control systems. The modules that were developed by Control Concepts allow our consultants, resellers, programmers and users to have a uniform and standardized experience regardless of the platform they prefer to work with.
The ClearOne CONVERGE Pro 2 outperforms in any size room, audio environment and application and is optimized to work with 2nd generation Beamforming Mic Array 2 and DIALOG® 20 2-Channel Wireless Microphone System through its native connection.
From the perspective of Control Concepts the newly developed modules help to simplify control system programming and integration of the CONVERGE Pro 2, ultimately
creating more effective and adaptable solutions for consultants, integrators, and programmers working with the equipment. In fact, this partnership provided Control Concepts with a valuable opportunity to collaborate with us during the critically important development stage, which helped to ensure that their clients’ control system needs are fully supported upon product release. Having multi-platform, consistent modules and a support relationship will help us to increase adoption and integration of their products.
The CONVERGE Pro 2 DSP mixers give further flexibility and affordability in choosing features and functionality. Scalable connectivity and powerful architecture provide up to 12 mic/line inputs, each with next-generation Acoustic Echo Cancellation®. Noise Cancellation with Adaptive Ambience with advanced microphone gating, and faster convergence span the full line, with different options for built-in VoIP, Telco, USB, and Dante. It creates a neat, economical solution to what might otherwise require a more expensive design.
