Underscoring its belief that a new generation of millennial users is now driving the
future shape and size of the commercial AV industry, ClearOne, the industry leading
provider of audio and video communications solutions, today introduced a series of
innovative new conferencing, collaboration, and streaming products. The new line is
designed to meet the needs of “work any time, any place, any application’ customers
seeking solutions that combine world-class audio with rich video and streaming

“In today’s increasingly mobile and decentralised work environment, great ideas more
than ever before need to be seen and heard,’ says ClearOne president and CEO, Zee
Hakimoglu. “More than any other company in the industry, ClearOne is providing
advanced conferencing, collaboration and network streaming solutions that deliver
unprecedented levels of functionality, reliability and scalability. Most importantly of all
for this new generation of professionals, we are doing this cost-effectively.’

According to Hakimoglu, ClearOne has over the last several years strengthened its
ability to meet a total addressable market that extends far beyond its core base in
professional audio to include microphones, video collaboration and networked audio
and video streaming. “In fact, ClearOne is now the only ProAV company that fully
connects, interoperates and scales across organisations of any size for all
conferencing, collaboration and network media streaming applications. For the AV
integrator, we stand alone in being able to service as the industry’s only one-stop
source for all their needs.’

ClearOne demonstrated this commitment to innovate across all categories at
InfoComm 2017 where it unveiled a series of new audio, conferencing and streaming
solutions that are now immediately available for delivery to integrators and resellers
around the world. The new products include:

• The ClearOne COLLABORATE Versa 150, the complete solution for PC-based
video and web conferencing applications in huddle spaces and conference rooms.

• The ClearOne VIEW Pro 4K line of 4K-capable, IP-based, multimedia streaming
products consisting of the E110 4K Encoder and D110 4K Decoder that employ both
H.264 lossless compression and H.265 high-efficiency video coding compression and
support of 4K resolution at 60 FPS — while providing integrators and end-users with a
uniquely customizable, scalable, and affordable 4K multimedia streaming solution.

• The ClearOne UNITE 150 PTZ, a full high-definition, USB camera that transforms
any meeting room into a professional-grade video collaboration room.

• Two new and affordably priced CONVERGE Pro 2 DSP mixers that strengthen
ClearOne’s already impressive mixer lineup.

• Two new compact and powerful CONVERGE Pro 2 USB and CONVERGE Pro 2
GPIO interface expanders that increase the number of ports available for conferencing
connectivity and room control for all CONVERGE Pro 2 DS mixers.

• Two new, Class-D four-channel CONVERGE PA 1-RU size power amplifiers that
are loaded with exceptionally flexible features that deliver the last word in plug-and-
play architecture.

“These new products reinforce ClearOne’s position as the preferred AV channel partner
that is uniquely positioned to offer a complete value chain of natively integrated
solutions from audio to video that maximise AV partner profitability,’ Hakimoglu
stressed. “We will continue to pursue this strategy of growth through innovation that
is protected by more than 100 active patents and patent applications, which cover all
of the markets we serve: spatial audio, beamforming with AEC, scalable multipoint
conferencing, camera and display technology for video conferencing, network media
streaming, and intuitive IoT control for smart devices.’
