Announced at ISE 2020, January 2020, the Nureva HDL200 system was designed for rooms and open spaces up to 18' x 18' (5.5 x 5.5 m), delivering the same consistent and reliable audio pickup that Nureva’s HDL300 systems deliver for larger spaces. All Nureva audio systems are powered by its 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.
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 and 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 helpful 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 continues to experience rapid growth by delivering the simple, reliable audio conferencing experience that the market is looking for. The unique value of 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 auto-calibration 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, users also receive an additional year of warranty, an increase from two years to three.
"I am one of the early users of the HDL200 system, which I’ve been using in my home office since early April, and I’ve been impressed with the system’s clear audio pickup," says John Simpson, chairman of the CANA Group of Companies. “I am no longer wondering what people are saying, because I can hear everyone on the call crystal clear."
"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," says Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. "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 is available in a dark- or light-colored finish and offers an infrared remote control with mute, volume, call answer and hang-up buttons. USB and power cables plug directly into the HDL200 bar, and the system can be connected to a PC or Mac computer running any UC&C, web conferencing or video conferencing software, such as Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, Cisco WebEx, GoToMeeting, Pexip Infinity Connect or other applications. The HDL200 system is recognized as a standard USB audio device. No additional drivers need to be installed.
