ClearOne® CONVERGE® Pro 2 Series Now Supports Built-In Skype® for Business Client

AMSTERDAM, Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ISE 2018 STAND #1-N120 -- Following on the heels of last year's announcement that Skype for Business is now available on its COLLABORATE® Pro product line, ClearOne (NASDAQ:CLRO), the leading global provider of audio and visual communication solutions, today introduced a system upgrade that allows the CONVERGE Pro 2 48V, 128V and 128VD DSP Mixers to support built-in Skype for Business client for installed audio conferencing applications. The announcement was made at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam in Stand #1-N120 of the RAI Exhibition Centre.

New CONVERGE Pro 2 Dialer applications for installed audio conferencing applications, available on Android and the ClearOne Touch-Panel Controller, support built-in Skype for Business client.

"CONVERGE Pro 2's support of the built-in Skype for Business client provides our customers with access to even more options for their professional audio conferencing needs," said ClearOne Senior Director of Product Line Management, Pro Voice & AV Distribution Durai Ramachandiran. "All CONVERGE Pro 2 units outperform in any sized room, any audio environment, and any applicaion, and the new system upgrade introduced today integrates this advanced system with all the unique benefits that Skype for Business client has to offer."

Skype for Business in CONVERGE Pro 2 VoIP units is available through a free upgrade for the software and firmware, and doesn't require any changes to the hardware. It works with both cloud and on-premise Skype for Business Servers, and is compatible with all other Skype for Business clients. Skype for Business allows for point-to-point audio conferencing, multi-party audio conferencing, and access to a complete call history. Additionally, there are new and separate CONVERGE Pro 2 Dialer applications for Skype for Business that are available on Android and the Touch-Panel Controller. The Integrator can choose to configure the CONVERGE Pro 2 units for regular SIP based VoIP conferencing or Skype for Business conferencing.

ClearOne's CONVERGE Pro 2 is the industry's most advanced professional audio DSP platform for conferencing and sound reinforcement applications. The platform is optimized to work with the new Beamforming Mic Array 2, the new DIALOG® 20 2-Channel Wireless Microphone System and the new USB Expander units through native connections. Three models, the 48V, 128V and 128VD, feature built-in VoIP and provide high-quality VoIP conferencing. Now these three models can be upgraded to support built-in Skype for Business also. All CONVERGE Pro 2 products offer powerful architecture, scalable connectivity, and flexible control options.

The free upgrade for the CONVERGE Pro 2 software and firmware will be available at the end of the month at the ClearOne website.
