ClearOne’s solutions are designed to support all leading collaboration platforms
USA - ClearOne has announced the immediate availability of several new features for its BMA 360 microphones, Converge Pro 2 (CP2) family of digital signal processing mixers (DSPs), and intuitive Console AI configuration software.
The new features include customisable beam pointing for ClearOne’s BMA 360 ceiling tile microphone, native camera tracking in the CP2 DSP mixer, and chairman gating ducking. These new features are accessible and configurable through the latest release of Console AI configuration software, now available for download.
According to ClearOne CEO Derek Graham, the new features enable integrators to deliver more responsive solutions to suit every client’s unique needs, while providing the superior flexibility and ease of use often demanded in modern business and educational settings.
“We’re providing these key enhancements to increase installation and design flexibility while enhancing real-time system management through new customisation options,” Graham says. “A variety of needs can arise during a virtual conference. With the new ducking, camera tracking and beam pointing enhancements, users and integrators can now employ greater control to ensure optimal operation in any space under any circumstances.”
The new ducking capability, which refers to reducing an input’s gain based on other simultaneous inputs, ensures the hosts’ speech can always be heard above other microphone sources or other audio sources.
Additionally, camera tracking can now originate within the CP2 DSP mixer for VISCA compatible cameras, enabling the DSP to use serial or IP communication to automatically trigger camera pan-tilt-zoom PTZ presets based on gating or beam information without requiring a third-party control system. Lastly, beam pointing for the BMA 360 now offers full customisation through a new view option and control interface that allows for full beam tuning and articulation.
“From Fortune 500 headquarters to community colleges, virtual collaboration and AV distribution are more important than ever before,” Graham concludes. “As a proud innovator dedicated to developing long-term user success and trust, ClearOne will continue to deliver performance enhancing upgrades and features for our existing solutions as we develop new products and systems to support the future of work.”
ClearOne’s solutions are designed to support all leading collaboration platforms, including Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, GoToMeeting, Zoom, and Webex.
