BMA 360 Frequency-invariant lobe depth down to -40 dB

Enhance Cloud Collaboration

The industry's only truly wideband, frequency invariant beamforming mic array with uniform gain response across all frequency bands.

FiBeam™ technology gives users the ultimate in natural and full fidelity audio across all beams and within a single beam. Deep Sidelobe Beamforming, DsBeam™, provides unparalleled sidelobe depth, below -40 dB, resulting in superior rejection of reverb and noise in difficult spaces for unrivaled superb clarity and intelligibility.

  • The patented BMA 360 is the world’s most technologically advanced ceiling tile beamforming mic array, delivering unrivaled audio performance and deployment ease.

  • Deep Sidelobe Beamforming, DsBeam™, provides unparalleled sidelobe depth, below -40 dB, resulting in superior rejection of reverb and noise in difficult spaces for superb clarity and intelligibility.
  • A dramatically new approach to precision beamforming provides a new beam topology to easily achieve distortion-free, full 360-degree coverage of any room shape and any seating arrangement using ClearOne Audio Intelligence™.
  • The BMA 360 Voice Lift feature provides a powerful and simple way to drive multiple mix-minus speaker zones allowing everyone in the local room to hear every word.
  • Due to the exceptional performance of the breakthrough technologies, FiBeam and DsBeam, greater Voice Lift gains can be realized that have not been previously possible.
  • The combination of ClearOne’s beamforming and feedback cancellation technologies provide up to a 20 dB boost in gain before feedback compared to an omni mic.
  • The BMA 360 FiBeam and DsBeam technologies enable a 12 dB increase in gain before feedback compared to an omni mic.
  • Voice Lift is further enhanced with the patented DARE™ Feedback Eliminator, found on CONVERGE® Pro 2 DSP Mixers. This technology provides unsurpassed removal of feedback and ringing--giving an additional boost of up to 8 dB to the total system gain.
  • The amazing sound of FiBeam and DsBeam, combined with the superior CONVERGE Pro 2 Feedback Eliminator, creates the industry’s absolute best Voice Lift system provided by any ceiling mounted microphone, including beamforming microphone arrays.
  • Voice Lift can be configured on up to three BMA 360s per CP2.
  • Further advancements in adaptive steering (think of it as smart switching) provide impeccable coverage of each conference participant as well as simultaneous support for camera tracking and Voice Lift.
  • The BMA 360 can switch on as many as two beams at one time, which enables better pickup of local presenters that are speaking at the same time.
  • 6G Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) delivers unparalleled per-beam full-duplex audio performance. On-board audio algorithms, like noise reduction, filtering, and Automatic Level Control, eliminate the need for per-beam processing in a DSP mixer - requiring fewer DSP mixer resources.
  • Built-in, robust power amplifiers, configurable as 4 x 15 Watt or 2 x 30 Watt, provide flexibility for driving loudspeakers.
  • ClearOne’s breakthrough technologies, FiBeam, DsBeam, Voice Lift, and 6G AEC combine to create VividVoice™, a significant advancement for professional conferencing.
  • Integrated features significantly reduce system design complexity, simplify installation, consume less rack space, and lower system cost.
  • Daisy-chain up to three ceiling tiles via P-Link for divisible rooms or larger conference setups – for simpler wiring and longer distances compared to networked “home run” connections via Ethernet.
  • Single workflow for configuration using CONSOLE® AI software. Competing products require practitioners to program multiple components using different toolsets: Ethernet switches, Ceiling Tiles, DSP mixers, and the Dante Controller.
  • To help ensure the very best possible design of a ClearOne Voice Lift system, a BMA 360 Voice Lift Design Guide, a BMA 360 PAG/NAG calculator, and a BMA 360 DARE Configuration Guide are available from clearone.com.
  • Supports three different ceiling grid types: 24 in, 600 mm, and 625 mm. It incorporates a VESA-mount hole pattern that supports pole mounting. Hard-ceiling mount adapter kits are also available.
