New BluePort™ Device Leverages StreamNet™ technology to Bring the Benefits of Bluetooth Connectivity to the Workplace
SALT LAKE CITY, June 14, 2011/PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), a global communications and entertainment solutions company, today introduced BluePort™, an in-wall wireless audio gateway for simplifying connectivity between conference rooms, offices and other common business settings. Adding BluePort units to the StreamNet™ powered AV system extends the reach and ease of unified communications in the workplace and allows employees to collaborate and share audio content for presentations, corporate announcements and other streaming content through an enterprise-class Bluetooth enabled device.
ClearOne is exhibiting and demonstrating BluePort for the first time this week in Orlando at InfoComm (booth 1563), the largest trade show for designers and installers of commercial AV systems.
"Whether you're in the lobby or an executive office, you can put your Bluetooth enabled smartphone in your pocket or a Bluetooth tablet on the conference table and have your phone conversation or audio content streaming wherever you like," said Aaron Davis, Senior Director of Product Marketing. "BluePort offers tremendous convenience and a rich, crystal-clear audio experience you just can't get on a traditional handheld device."
BluePort's front panel provides a "pairing" button for linking BluePort with the Bluetooth enabled transmitting device, and a small LED, which indicates pairing and transmission status. The in-wall device fits into a single-gang switchbox. Multiple BluePort units can be installed in one system and used simultaneously with different Bluetooth sources. Installers can choose from a variety of 16 zones to configure audio systems by the zone location (i.e., lobby, boardroom, etc.) or by identifying name, such as BluePort 1 or BluePort 2.
BluePort will be available in July at an MSRP of $499.99
