Nureva Ships HDL-300

Nureva Inc is shipping the HDL300 audio conferencing system. At the core of the HDL300 system is Nureva’s breakthrough Microphone Mist technology, which places 8,192 virtual microphones throughout a meeting room to pick up sound from any location. Enabled by real-time hardware, the system uses sophisticated algorithms to simultaneously process sound from all virtual microphones to provide remote participants with a high quality listening experience. All participants are clearly heard regardless of where they are in the room or the direction they are facing. The HDL300 system was first shown at InfoComm 2016 when the product was still under development, and it was named Best New Audio Conferencing Product by rAVe Publications.The HDL300 audio conferencing system resolves the frustrating and persistent issue of poor audio pickup, especially in dynamic meetings where participants move around the room. The system’s custom audio processing unit is capable of handling 15,000 MIPS, which is much more powerful than conventional systems. This power is used to create a quality listening experience for remote participants by way of the virtual microphones, continuous self-calibration, simultaneous echo cancellation, position-based automatic gain control and sound masking. The HDL300 system is optimized for small to mid-sized meeting and collaboration spaces, and is designed to work with Skype for Business, Zoom, Blue Jeans, Cisco Spark, Cisco WebEx, GoToMeeting, Pexip Infinity Connect and other common UC&C applications.

Here are the specs.
