Canada-based Nureva is now shipping its HDL200 audio conferencing system, the newest addition to the company’s line. Designed for rooms and open spaces up to 18′ x 18′ (5.5 x 5.5 m), the HDL200 system delivers the same consistent and reliable audio pickup that Nureva’s HDL300 systems delivers for larger spaces, says the company.

All Nureva audio systems are powered by patented Microphone Mist™ technology, which fills the entire space with thousands of virtual microphones so that everybody can be heard no matter how far apart in-room meeting participants are, how softly they talk or which direction they face. The company says that, unlike beamforming and tabletop omnidirectional microphones, there are no dead zones in the room where it is difficult to be heard.

The system was designed for quick DIY installation. It can be mounted above or below a display, on either a wall or a mobile stand. An optional magnetic mount is also available for attaching third-party cameras to the system. The HDL200 also has a built-in LCD to give in-room participants information such as time, volume and mute on/off. Further enhancements will roll out through future integrations with other products such as room control, building information management and room booking systems.

Nureva’s Microphone Mist technology provides freedom for in-room participants to spread out, face any direction and move around the space. Remote participants can hear the conversation clearly, and naturally contribute as if they were in the room. And continuous autocalibration means fewer room visits for IT staff.

Nureva’s audio product line includes the HDL200 for small spaces, the HDL300 for medium spaces up to 25′ x 25′ (7.6 x 7.6 m) and the Dual HDL300 for large spaces up to 30′ x 50′ (9.1 x 15.2 m). Deployment of the full Nureva audio conferencing product line is supported by Nureva Console, a cloud-based platform that makes it easy for IT staff to implement and manage all Nureva systems at scale from a secure, web-based dashboard. Once a Nureva audio system is enrolled through Nureva Console, customers also receive an additional year of warranty, an increase from two years to three.

“Clear, reliable audio conferencing is especially relevant at this time when there is a need to maintain in-room physical distancing, while ensuring remote participants can hear and contribute to the conversation,” said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO, in the announcement statement. “The addition of the HDL200 to our product line gives IT managers every option they need to support meeting rooms of all sizes.”

The Nureva HDL200 audio conferencing system is available through a global network of value-added dealers and resellers.
