ClearOne Wins 2019 rAVe Best of ISE Awards for Beamforming Microphone Array Ceiling Tile and CONVERGE Huddle Solutions

ClearOne® (NASDAQ: CLRO), a leading global supplier of audio and visual communications solutions, today announced that their new Beamforming Microphone Array Ceiling Tile and CONVERGE® Huddle have received 2019 rAVe Best of ISE Awards in the “Best Room Mic Array” and “Best Collaboration System Product” categories.

“We are honored that these two solutions were recognized in this very competitive space,” ClearOne Chair and CEO Zee Hakimoglu said today. “Our patented Beamforming Microphone Array Ceiling Tile is transforming professional AV system design with its powerful benefits and superior ClearOne architecture, while the integrator-friendly CONVERGE Huddle is a unique and very affordable conferencing solution for huddle rooms and similarly sized meeting spaces.”

The ClearOne Beamforming Microphone Array Ceiling Tile (BMA CT) significantly reduces complexity and cost with its built-in echo cancellation, noise cancellation, and multi-array setups that can utilize a single, low-channel count DSP mixer while maintaining ClearOne’s high level of performance and reliability. Further simplification comes from the array’s built-in power amplifier, which allows each array to drive two 10-Watt, 8-Ohm loudspeakers. The BMA CT also features ClearOne’s proprietary adaptive steering technology (think of it as smart switching). This provides impeccable room coverage while eliminating the need to adjust individual beams.

The integrator-friendly CONVERGE Huddle, derived from ClearOne’s latest CONVERGE Pro 2 line of DSP mixers, comes equipped with the latest Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Noise Cancellation audio processing algorithms. Using CONVERGE Huddle, audio and video collaboration applications are accomplished through a single cable connection to users’ Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD), such as laptops, tablets and smartphones that run applications such as Spontania®, Skype®, Skype for Business, GoToMeeting™, WebEx®, COLLABORATE® Space, and more.

The rAVe Best of ISE Awards are determined by the publication’s staff and represent what they believe to be the best products introduced by the more than 1,300 exhibitors at ISE 2019, which was held February 5-8 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. To view the full list of winners, click here.
