SALT LAKE CITY, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), a global communications and entertainment solutions company, announced it is expanding its line of audio and teleconferencing microphones with its first model designed expressly for ceiling installation. Conceived for group meeting environments not suited for tabletop solutions, the new model is a high performance, three-element microphone which minimizes ambient noise from ceiling sources while delivering full 360-degree coverage. The ClearOne ceiling microphone features an adjustable length of Plenum-rated cable for drop ceilings.
Available in black or white, the microphone will be introduced this week in Orlando at InfoComm (booth 1563), the largest trade show for designer and installers of professional AV systems.
"The new ClearOne ceiling microphone will provide more installation options for end-users and create new opportunities for our integrators," said Aaron Davis, Senior Director of Product Marketing. "The new models enable installers to put together individual, custom solutions to transmit optimized audio."
The new ceiling microphone takes advantage of ClearOne HDConference™ technology. It employs an auto-mixer circuit, providing adaptive ambient response with first microphone priority. Cable connections are via an RJ45 jack and Cat 5/6/7 cable.
The new microphone is scheduled for shipment in September at an MSRP of $599.
