ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) takes another leap ahead with the Pro Audio industry’s most powerful innovation, the Beamforming Microphone Array, now supporting tabletop and wall applications.  The best just got better, and continues to disrupt the Pro AV industry.

“While others are trying to catch up, we are well ahead, creating new solutions for our value-added distributors, integrators and resellers to offer more options in servicing their customers,” said Zee Hakimoglu, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of ClearOne. “The Beamforming Microphone Array is truly a game-changer for the Pro AV industry – as the only professional microphone array of its kind. It now has the flexibility to be used in wall mode for video conferencing, tabletop mode for conference rooms, and ceiling mount for applications as critical as operating rooms.”

The Beamforming Microphone Array is the Pro AV industry’s first professional-grade microphone array with beamforming and adaptive steering technology and ClearOne's next-generation Acoustic Echo Cancellation. The ultra-sleek design fits into any conferencing environment and adaptively delivers the ultimate in voice pickup available on the market today. Twenty-four microphone elements steer pickup patterns towards participants, rejecting unwanted noise and reflections, offering superb and unmatched performance. The array seamlessly interfaces with ClearOne CONVERGE® Pro products, and conveniently supports Power-over-Ethernet.

With simple firmware and software upgrades, scheduled for release in June, users can expand the array’s capabilities from ceiling mode to include tabletop and wall modes. Separate ceiling and wall-mount kits provide further flexibility for optimum installation.
