Nureva Inc., the Calgary, Alberta Canada-based provider of advanced audio conferencing solutions announced the HDL410 system, marking the first of a new generation of Nureva audio conferencing systems designed to further simplify the task of getting great audio in larger hybrid spaces.
The HDL410 system combines two Nureva microphone and speaker bars with a new connect module, powered by the company’s Microphone Mist technology and a new unified coverage map to deliver pro audio performance in extra-large working and learning spaces up to 35′ x 55′ (10. 7 x 16.8 m). The unified coverage map enables the two microphone and speaker bars to act is if they were a single device with a single coverage map that spans the entire space. This greatly improves audio performance and sound location data accuracy for camera switching and steering, while avoiding the complications and performance challenges of systems that require manual setup and complex processing to stitch together overlapping coverage areas from multiple ceiling microphones.
A new Console Direct feature provides a secure and continuous connection between the HDL410 and Nureva Console, allowing IT managers to manage the HDL410 remotely without having to rely on an in-room computer running client software. Users get access to remotely install firmware updates, check device status, view analytics and historical data, change settings, access APIs from the Nureva Developer Toolkit and more.
Also new to the HDL410 is an audience mute feature within Nureva’s Voice Amplification Mode, which can focus microphone pickup on the presenter or instructor’s voice while reducing all other microphone pickup in the space.
The continued shift to hybrid environments has put a strain on IT resources to meet new and growing needs in collaboration spaces of all sizes, requiring solutions that dramatically improve the experience of remote participants. For audio in larger spaces, this challenge is amplified by the higher cost and complexity of designing, installing and managing traditional pro AV solutions.
Nureva says its at the forefront of finding innovative, IT-friendly ways to meet these challenges with intelligent audio systems that are easy to deploy and manage. The HDL410 connects easily by USB and can be installed and operational in about an hour, with no DSP required, simple bar mounting on the wall via 2-screws and continuous autocalibration. Microphone Mist technology handles echo cancellation, noise reduction, position-based gain control and the challenges of multiple in-room participants speaking at once. Nureva audio systems integrate with UC&C platforms including Microsoft Teams and Zoom, and the HDL410 is currently in the certification process for Microsoft Teams, which would make it the first microphone and speaker bar certified for extra-large Microsoft Teams Rooms.
“Today’s IT leaders are asking for intelligent solutions that deliver the collaboration experience their users demand without putting a strain on IT resources,” says Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “The Nureva HDL410 system is our latest and most dramatic example of using our IT-first approach to innovation to deliver great audio in large spaces.”
