The Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive Was A Success!
In three days Starin employees raised 125lbs of donations for local food banks!
Take a look at the pic attached, that is all you Starin! The post office will be
here today to pick up our donations. I hope they bring the BIG mail truck.
Thank you goes out to Gene Craven, CSR who organized this drive!
At InFocomm 2012, ClearOne introduced their Beam Forming Microphone Array, which is now shipping. This is a unique product which uses a new technology that allows one or more of the 24 mic elements to focus in on the person speaking in the room. From the audio recordings I have heard, this product eliminates much of the room “noise” that in inherent with typical ceiling mics. (Editor’s note: the BFM WILL NOT solve the problems of a poor acoustical environment). As mentioned, the ClearOne BFM has 24 mic elements yet uses no mic inputs on the ClearOne Converge DSP products. That being said, the BFM can only be used with Converge DSP product line since it connects to the expansion Bus on the Converge series.
On a recent end-user visit with a dealer, the customer needed to outfit a large training room with microphones. As with most spaces we encounter today, the room will have a variety of seating arrangements to accommodate different training needs. They did not want any mics on the table and did not want a bunch of ceiling mics hanging down. We went over a few solutions with the customer on how we can mic the room and keeping it within their budget and wishes.
The solution that the dealer and customer agreed on was using the (6) ClearOne BFM with two ClearOne 840T DSPs. Each Converge can support up to (3) BFMs. We were able to get away using the most cost effective DSP from ClearOne and outfit the room with (6) BFMs. Not only that, the customer has 8 open mic inputs left. They will also be installing a 4 channel Revolabs HD systems for presenter’s lapel mics and handheld mics. They still have 4 mic inputs available for future use.
While utilizing the BFMs and not needing many DSP mic inputs that would usually be required, we saved the customer money, install time, and will be delivering the best mic coverage available for that space.
