Nureva brings advanced audio conferencing into small spaces with new HDL200 system

Intelligent microphone and speaker bar delivers unmatched simplicity and flexibility

CALGARY, Jan. 14, 2020 /CNW/ - Nureva Inc., an award-winning collaboration-solutions company, announces the HDL200 audio conferencing system, the newest addition to the company's line of advanced audio solutions. Beautifully crafted and specifically designed for the needs of meeting 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 award-winning HDL300 systems deliver for larger spaces. The HDL200 is powered by patented Microphone Mist™ technology, which fills the entire meeting space with thousands of virtual microphones so that everybody is heard no matter how softly they talk, where they move in the space or the direction they face. Unlike beamforming and tabletop omnidirectional microphones, there are no dead zones where it is difficult to be heard. The HDL200 is 46.4" W x 4.8" H (1.18 x 0.12 m) with 10 front-facing microphones to offer maximum installation flexibility. It can be mounted above or below a display, on the wall (mounting bracket included) or on a mobile stand. Supporting third-party meeting room peripherals was also a design consideration, with the option of a cleverly designed optional magnetic camera mount and a display mount. The HDL200 also has an integrated full-color display that is perfectly sized for small rooms to give in-room participants helpful information such as time, volume and mute on/off. Further enhancements are envisioned through future integrations with other products such as room control, building information management and room booking systems.

Nureva has experienced continued rapid growth in its customer base over the past year, including the addition of Google, Intel, MIT, VMWare, Allstate Insurance and Deloitte. Customer feedback continues to guide the expansion of Nureva's audio platform and ecosystem relationships with the goal of making it easy for IT professionals to achieve consistent, hassle-free audio performance throughout their spaces. The Nureva product line includes the HDL300 for medium spacesup to 25' x 25' (7.6 x 7.6 m), the Dual HDL300 for large spaces up to 30' x 50' (9.1 x 15.2 m) and now the HDL200 for small spaces. Deployment of the full Nureva audio conferencing product line is supported by Nureva™ Console, a new cloud-based platform that makes it easy for IT staff to implement and manage all Nureva systems at scale from a secure dashboard that can be accessed remotely. 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.

"Our customers are receiving tremendous value from the HDL300 systems and have been asking when we will have a similar solution for their smaller rooms," said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva's CEO. "With the introduction of the HDL200 system and Nureva Console, we are excited to offer them a full line of systems and management tools to support their desire for standardization and simplicity."
