The new ClearOne VIEW platform delivers the highest quality HD video and sound over common LAN infrastructure found in commercial facilities.
SALT LAKE CITY, May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ClearOne (http://www.clearone.com) (Nasdaq: CLRO), a global communications solutions company that develops and sells audio conferencing, collaboration, streaming media, and connectivity systems and other related products for audio, video and web applications, today introduced the VIEW™ platform, a new line of IP-based HD audio/video distribution and control network products based on its patented StreamNet® technology.
The VIEW solution provides functionality beyond just A/V distribution— it also provides source control, a graphical user interface, sensor and relay control and much more— all without the need for time consuming and complicated programming. By distributing audio/video over TCP/IP, significant improvements in scalability, flexibility, performance, functionality and price are achieved over traditional audio/video distribution methods. The VIEW solution provides virtual LAN Cloud Matrix Switching™, allowing any source to be dynamically routed to any display or audio zone.
The new VIEW product line will be offered exclusively to audiovisual system A/V practitioners certified by ClearOne to have the knowledge, skill and resources to work with converged audiovisual and data network technology. The VIEW product line includes HD A/V encoders, decoders, control interfaces and Ethernet switches. The entire platform will be demonstrated at booth # N2124 at InfoComm in Las Vegas on June 9-11, 2010.
"ClearOne's VIEW IP-based audio/video distribution and control products greatly simplify design and installation for A/V practitioners," said Scott Woolley, Director of Product Management, Multimedia and Networking for ClearOne. "The VIEW system is a perfect example of the Power of AV over IP™. It is easy to use, provides perfect HD video and sounds great." Woolley continued, "The ClearOne VIEW platform opens up significant new business opportunities for A/V practitioners, including double-digit growth applications such as digital signage and entertainment."
The VIEW encoder provides real-time encoding of audio and video signals from a video source, including digital signage players, set-top boxes, DVD and players. It converts a variety of audio, video and control signal formats into an A/V stream that can then be distributed over any TCP/IP network. The units feature BNC connectors and balanced audio inputs within a 1RU high, 1/2 rack wide form factor. The decoder provides real time decoding of a TCP/IP A/V stream for output to a display.
