ClearOne’s unique, industry-leading suite of professional audio and Dante™-enabled networking products is being showcased at InfoComm Booth #N1827, June 18 through 20, 2014

 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — June 16, 2014

 
Maintaining its leadership position in the installed audio conferencing market, ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), has launched the CONVERGE® Matrix Sound Reinforcement Distribution and Processing System enabled with Dante™ networking. Available in Q4, 2014, this new system leverages the utility of existing Ethernet networks for the routing and distribution of networked audio, supporting up to 512×512 uncompressed channels for audio matrix mixing. This solution will be unveiled at the InfoComm 2014 Conference in Las Vegas, where ClearOne is exhibiting in Booth #N1827.
 
“Enterprises and organizations that need scalable and flexible audio capabilities with crystal-clear voice and sound, can specify and pre-order the CONVERGE Matrix through leading Audio Consultants and Integrators who specialize in DSP and audio processing systems,” explained Durai Ramachandiran, ClearOne’s Senior Director of Product Line Management for Pro Voice and AV Distribution. “Two versions of the product will initially be available – one with 256×256 uncompressed channels, expandable with an additional 256×256 slot-in card, and another with embedded 512×512 support. Both versions include two Ethernet ports to connect into Dante networks – one primary port to connect with the main network, and a secondary port to connect with network backup for redundancy and enhanced reliability.”
 
ClearOne’s CONVERGE Matrix works with CONVERGE Pro and SR units connected into a network through CONNECT Dante, without requiring any hardware changes in the CONVERGE units, to enable a flexible and cost-effective modular approach. The unit is easy to manage, provides complete system redundancy, and leverages a hybrid systems approach with room endpoints, shared DSP processing, and centralized DSP matrix routing with distributed resources. This unique solution from ClearOne increases the scalability and reliability of networked voice and sound applications without any distance limitations, and is suitable for small, medium, and large scale projects.
 
Common uses for CONVERGE Matrix include sound reinforcement and distribution at airports, transportation hubs, universities, stadiums, casinos, entertainment venues, amusement parks, houses of worship, shopping malls, convention and expo centers, auditoriums, corporate buildings, healthcare facilities, hotels, and aboard cruise ships.

ClearOne Announces New CONNECT Dante Network Bridge for Scalable Pro Audio Solutions at InfoComm 2014

ClearOne Announces New CONNECT® Dante™ Network Bridge for Scalable Pro Audio Solutions at INFOCOMM 2014


ClearOne to feature seamless compatibility in Dante network audio bridging with CONVERGE® product line, Booth #N1827
 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — May 28, 2014

 
Continuing its innovation in the Professional Audio market, ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) introduces the CONNECT Dante network bridge for simple and scalable audio networking with no need to change existing hardware. The modular audio networking approach uses CONNECT network audio bridges with ClearOne’s flagship family of CONVERGE Pro & SR products, allowing users to easily build a scalable system over time.
 
“This new unit provides system integrators with a Dante digital transport for audio systems. While CONVERGE already supports CobraNet®, the addition of Dante gives customers the flexibility of choosing the appropriate bridge based on their requirements,” said Durai Ramachandiran, ClearOne’s Senior Director of Product Line Management for Pro Voice and AV Distribution. “Ideal for enterprise applications, hospitality projects, and higher education, CONNECT Dante expands the reach of CONVERGE products for more varied audio distribution projects.”
 
ClearOne’s CONNECT Dante bridge provides the compact form factor and ease-of-use necessary to create a scalable audio network, compatible with existing hardware. A simple firmware upgrade will allow CONVERGE products to fully integrate with Dante-enabled network bridges, microphones, and amplifiers. The robust, highly-interoperable Dante solution provides a no-hassle, self-configuring, true plug-and-play digital audio network using standard Internet Protocols on existing infrastructure—without requiring a dedicated network. Some of the largest live events and sophisticated installations worldwide use this technology, which is based on global networking standards, making signal distribution more cost-effective and user-friendly.
 
“Audinate’s primary goal of revolutionizing the connection of AV systems is fully realized with the introduction of Dante technology,” said Ervin Grinberg, Director of Marketing for Audinate. “Dante makes it simple to create a digital media network, while meeting the performance standards professional installers require. We’re excited to work with ClearOne in providing this breakthrough technology solution to the Pro Audio market.”
 
CONNECT Dante will be on display at InfoComm 2014, ClearOne Booth #N1827. The product is targeted to ship in June 2014.
