Nureva HDL300 audio conferencing solutions are now Microsoft Teams certified

The Nureva HDL300 has become the first microphone and speaker bar to be certified for large Microsoft Teams Rooms

Nureva announced that its Nureva HDL300 audio conferencing system is now certified as a Microsoft Teams Room device.

After undergoing Microsoft’s rigorous testing process, the HDL300 system has become the first microphone and speaker bar to be certified for large meeting spaces up to 15′ x 28′ (4.5 x 8.5 m). Powered by Nureva’s patented Microphone Mist™ technology, the HDL300 system fills a room with 8,192 virtual microphones so in-room participants can move around, maintain physical distance and still be heard clearly by remote participants.

Unlike traditional audio conferencing systems for large spaces, there isn’t a need for a DSP, complex installation, and calibration of multiple components such as table-top pods and ceiling mics and can be easily installed and set up in under an hour. The system hangs on a wall with two screws and connects via USB to a computer with Teams software. It calibrates automatically and continuously so the Teams Room is always ready to go – even if it has been reconfigured to accommodate changing uses or distancing protocols.

“Microsoft Teams has experienced huge growth and Microsoft’s certification of the Nureva HDL300 for rooms of up to 8.5m creates a new category and exciting opportunities for MS Teams rooms. Whole room audio pickup with a natural experience is just what the market requires.”

Since the start of the pandemic, Teams has become indispensable to a growing number of organisations and educational institutions around the globe that have shifted to a hybrid model, where a combination of workers or learners are physically in the same space, alongside those who are remote. Recent data show that daily active Teams users climbed to over 115 million at the end of October, and more than 230,000 education institutions are using Teams for remote and hybrid learning. As those numbers continue to grow, reliable audio conferencing that is easy to implement and manage will continue to be an essential aspect of any IT strategy to support collaboration. The HDL300 provides Teams customers with a new certified device option that is ideally suited to meet this need.
