TMCnet Recognizes ClearOne with the 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award

Beamforming_Microphone_Array_BW-0814ClearOne has been named by TMCnet as the recipient of the 2014 Communications Product of the Year Award for its revolutionary Beamforming Microphone Array. One of TMC’s most coveted awards, the Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award honors exceptional products and services that facilitate voice, data and video communications that were recently brought to market.

ClearOne’s Beamforming Microphone Array is claimed to be the world’s first professional-grade directional microphone array with beamforming and adaptive steering technology, and ClearOne’s next-generation Acoustic Echo Cancellation. Twenty-four microphone elements steer acoustic pickup patterns towards participants, rejecting unwanted noise and reflections, and offering high-end voice audio performance. The array seamlessly interfaces with ClearOne CONVERGE Pro products, and supports Power-over-Ethernet operation.

Recently, the Beamforming Microphone Array was updated to operate with ClearOne’s COLLABORATE Room Pro all-in-one, high-definition, 1080p 60fps (frames per second) video appliance. This integrated solution, available with a nine-party MCU, includes many tools that would usually be purchased separately, such as streaming, recording, content creation, presentation and in a future free software upgrade — wireless projection and interactive white boarding.

Here’s the product that won it all.
