ClearOne Intros COLLABORATE Live – Four Video Collaboration Room Systems

ClearOne today just announced something called COLLABORATE Live, a series of four video collaboration solutions for any size room environment that includes audio and video, interactive white-boarding, presentation, recording, streaming and cloud connectivity.

Aimed at large sized boardrooms, auditoriums, conference rooms, lecture halls, courtrooms, training centers and telemedicine facilities, COLLABORATE Live 900 is a high-end system with an audio DSP technology. COLLABORATE 900 features a suite of built-in video conferencing capabilities including a Skype for Business client, SIP/H.323 video conferencing, wireless presentation, interactive whiteboard, recording and streaming and a user interface that’s as simple and familiar as the interface found on a tablet or mobile device. It also includes a CONVERGE Pro 2 DSP mixer and an audio processor with ClearOne’s Beamforming Microphone Array, which features adaptive steering technology (think of it as smart switching). For high-quality video capture, the COLLABORATE Live 900 comes with the UNITE 200 PTZ 1080p60 camera with 12x optical zoom. The system also includes a 90-day free trial of the ClearOne COLLABORATE Space cloud-based video conferencing application.

COLLABORATE Live 600 is a video collaboration system that delivers full-duplex audio for medium-sized conference room environments. It includes the same suite of built-in video conferencing capabilities, the UNITE 200 PTZ camera, an ultra-friendly user interface, and a 90-day free COLLABORATE Space trial subscription. For audio, the system features two ClearOne CHAT 150 speakerphones that daisy chain with CHATAttach.

For complete small-room and executive office video collaboration solution that’s where the COLLABORATE Live 300 system comes in. Featuring the same simple and friendly user interface found in the larger room systems, COLLABORATE Live 300 includes a free 90-day COLLABORATE Space web conferencing subscription, a Skype for Business client, SIP/H.323 video conferencing, wireless presentation and interactive whiteboard capabilities — along with one CHAT 150 speakerphone and one UNITE 150 PTZ camera with 1080p30, 12x optical zoom.
