ClearOne Returns to CEDIA Expo 2023
ClearOne is returning to CEDIA 2023 with a complete suite of products, programs, and on-site demonstrations designed to help partners further capitalize on the expanding market demand for remote/hybrid work solutions. The company will be exhibiting at Booth #727 in the Colorado Convention Center from Sept. 7-9, 2023.
“The demand for flexible, robust, and reliable conferencing and collaboration solutions continue to present growth opportunities for partners in the residential custom installation market channel,” ClearOne CEO Derek Graham said today. “In order to meet the full spectrum of requirements demanded by today’s end users, manufacturers must be able to provide a selection of plug and play professional grade audio, conferencing, and collaboration solutions for a professional home office. ClearOne is committed to meeting the needs of this important market, and we are demonstrating this commitment at CEDIA 2023.”
Ideal for small home office spaces, the recently launched CHAT 150 BT Speakerphone, USB and Bluetooth speakerphone that enhances conferencing for the ultimate business-class performance will be displayed in the booth. The CHAT 150 BT allows for fast connectivity, enhanced audio that includes noise cancellation and is compatible with all standard conferencing applications.
Also on display is the Versa Mediabar video sound bar featuring a built-in 4K Ultra HD camera with a 110-degree wide-angle field of view and a four-element microphone array with 360-degree voice pickup and intelligent DSP that provides acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) and automatic noise reduction to ensure crystal clear audio capture. The camera combines electronic pan, tilt and zoom functions (ePTZ) with artificial intelligence to enable automatic subject framing and people tracking that keeps the speaker in view even if they move around the room.
In addition to its professional-quality audio and video capture, the Versa Mediabar also features a powerful built-in speaker with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing it to serve double duty as a full featured conferencing solution or a Bluetooth speaker for impromptu calls using any Bluetooth device.
The UNITE 60 4K ePTZ Wide-Angle Tracking Camera is also being displayed at the show. The camera supports up to 4K30 video and features auto-focus and automatic backlight correction for clear details in dimly or brightly lit environments. It features a wide 120° field of view, a bright aperture of f/2.8, and 2D and 3D digital noise reduction for a crisp, clear image. This model also features subject tracking using audio via its built-in microphone array or by movement, so it can follow your speaker and always keep them in frame.
The UNITE 60 features ePTZ (electronic pan, tilt, zoom) functions using the included IR remote control, and also supports USB communication using protocols such as UVC 1.0/1.1 and UVC PTZ. It can focus in on your subject using the 3x digital zoom.
Next in the products being showcased is the COLLABORATE Versa Pro CT, which is an ideal fit for small to medium-sized rooms and includes a Huddle DSP and the patented BMA CTH beamforming mic array ceiling tile. It is designed for small meeting rooms, conference rooms, boardrooms, and various other workspaces.
Then there’s the COLLABORATE Versa Lite CT, a professional USB Plug-N-Play beamforming mic array ceiling tile designed to dramatically enhance the audio experience with natural-sounding conversations and highly intelligible speech. The VERSA Lite CT has built in AEC, noise cancellation and an onboard 2x10w amp.
Finally, attendees can experience COLLABORATE Versa 60 which brings true plug-and-play connectivity with quality audio and 4K video to enhance the home office meeting experience. A CHAT 150 USB speakerphone is included, a UNITE 60 wide angle 4K ePTZ camera, and a VERSA USB Hub.
