Skype for Business has been available on ClearOne‘s COLLABORATE Pro product line and a new update adds it to the CONVERGE Pro 2 48V, 128V and 128VD DSP Mixers. The announcement was made at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam in Stand #1-N120 of the RAI Exhibition Centre.
Skype for Business in CONVERGE Pro 2 VoIP units is available through a free upgrade for the software and firmware, and doesn’t require any changes to the hardware. It works with both cloud and on-premise Skype for Business Servers, and is compatible with all other Skype for Business clients. Skype for Business allows for point-to-point audio conferencing, multi-party audio conferencing, and access to a complete call history. Additionally, there are new and separate CONVERGE Pro 2 Dialer applications for Skype for Business that are available on Android and the Touch-Panel Controller. The Integrator can choose to configure the CONVERGE Pro 2 units for regular SIP based VoIP conferencing or Skype for Business conferencing.
ClearOne’s CONVERGE Pro 2 is a professional audio DSP platform for conferencing and sound reinforcement applications. The platform is designed to work with the new Beamforming Mic Array 2, the new DIALOG 20 2-Channel Wireless Microphone System and the new USB Expander units through native connections. Three models, the 48V, 128V and 128VD, feature built-in VoIP and provide VoIP conferencing. Now these three models can be upgraded to support built-in Skype for Business also.
