clearone-data-conf-patent-0716ClearOne is on a patent frenzy. On May 31, 2016, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) issued United States Patent number 9,357,171 entitled, “System and Method of Multi-End-Point Data Conferencing.” The ‘171 patent relates to a scalable conferencing system designed to support multi-party calls, permitting endpoints to discover each other and providing an efficient way for data to be mixed and re-transmitted to endpoints that are participating in a multi-party conference. Embodiments of this invention enable multiple endpoints using a multicast protocol and participating in conferences that include audio, video, and/or data sharing to function without a central multi-point control unit. This can decrease the cost of multi-party conferencing.
