Since it was first announced in 2016, the Nureva HDL300 system has been under development and it has undergone rigorous testing and user trials resulting in outstanding reviews from beta users, resellers and industry analysts. At the core of the HDL300 system is Nureva’s breakthrough Microphone Mist technology, which places 8,192 virtual microphones throughout a meeting room to pick up sound from any location. Enabled by real-time hardware, the system uses sophisticated algorithms to simultaneously process sound from all virtual microphones to provide remote participants with a high quality listening experience. All participants are clearly heard regardless of where they are in the room or the direction they are facing.
The collaboration-solutions company from Calgary, Alberta, believes its new HDL300 audio conferencing system resolves the frustrating and persistent issue of poor audio pickup, especially in dynamic meetings where participants move around the room. The system’s custom audio processing unit is capable of handling 15,000 MIPS, which is much more powerful than conventional systems. This power is used to create a quality listening experience for remote participants by way of the virtual microphones, continuous self-calibration, simultaneous echo cancellation, position-based automatic gain control and sound masking.
The HDL300 system is optimized for small to mid-sized meeting and collaboration spaces, and is designed to work with Skype for Business, Zoom, Blue Jeans, Cisco Spark, Cisco WebEx, GoToMeeting, Pexip Infinity Connect and other common unified communications & collaboration (UC&C) applications.
“Early feedback on the HDL300 system has been tremendous, with resellers and their customers expressing excitement at the arrival of a simple, cost-effective solution to the nagging issues with audio conferencing,” says Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “We are excited to be in full production of the system at a time when customers are searching for new approaches to solving old and persistent problems.”
The Nureva HDL300 audio conferencing system is supplied with a breakout box and mounting bracket, USB and power cables. The system requires a computer enabled with UC&C, web conferencing or video conferencing software. When the USB cable is plugged into a computer, the HDL300 system is recognized as a standard USB audio device. No additional drivers need to be installed.
The integrated microphone and speaker bar is easily installed on a wall and connected by a single Ethernet cable (for power and communication) to the breakout box. The wall-mounted location minimizes the distractions of table noise and keeps the table clear. The HDL300 system is designed to work in a range of small to mid-sized spaces up to 20' x 20' (6.1 m x 6.1 m), including huddle rooms, small to mid-sized meeting rooms, and team workspaces.
The HDL300 system is now available through a global network of authorized Nureva dealers and distributors in North America, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The MSRP is $2,999 in the United States and includes a two-year limited warranty. Nureva is also actively recruiting dealers in North America to complement Nureva’s current channel network and sell the company’s HDL300 audio conferencing system.
