SALT LAKE CITY, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne [NASDAQ: CLRO], the leading global provider of audio and visual communication solutions, is introducing a duo of compact yet powerful interface expanders — (1) CONVERGE® Pro 2 USB and (2) CONVERGE Pro 2 GPIO — that increase the number of ports available for conferencing connectivity and room control for all CONVERGE Pro 2 DS mixers. See these new expanders at InfoComm (Booth 3421), June 14-16 in Orlando.
The USB expander acts primarily as a USB audio interface, connecting a laptop directly to the room's professional-quality audio with familiar PC-based video conferencing applications, including ClearOne SpontaniaTM, Google® Hangouts, Skype® for Business, WebEx®, or any other cloud-based applications. It also can be used to share the DSP mixer resources across multiple rooms.
The GPIO Expander provides a dozen input and output pins to control in-room devices such as microphones, cameras, window coverings, and lights.
As many as 3 USB expanders and 3 GPIO expanders can be daisy-chained per CONVERGE Pro 2 mixer — in any order — to further increase USB connectivity and room-control options.
The new CONVERGE Pro 2 Expanders are shipping at the end of August 2017. Contact ClearOne for pricing.
