A sound solution for meeting room audio

The Challenge

Inaudible participants on conference calls is a frustrating, time-wasting problem that is all too common in the corporate world. The number of remote workers has grown substantially and naturally, this has sparked an increase in conference calls involving multiple workers in multiple locations. The confusion caused by not being able to hear a participant or convey a message easily is one of the great meeting disruptors. Today’s meeting room scenario demands a vastly improved audio experience to allow all employees to communicate and collaborate effectively.

  • Ensure workforces can collaborate effectively regardless of their location
  • Help remote meeting participants feel like they’re right there with their team
  • Ensure every attendee can contribute equally and is heard clearly
  • Improve collaboration and meeting room performance

Seamless audio for virtual meetings

Today’s businesses are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to modern ways of working and collaboration. On one hand, companies are keen to enable seamless interactivity among employees and encourage them to engage in highly interactive, collaborative sessions. On the other hand, the drive to remain competitive in the 24/7 ‘always-on’ culture means workers are no longer just based in an office.

Workforces are dispersed and businesses have had to explore how teams can still work together even when they’re not physically together. IT departments are facing increased pressure to support the advanced collaborative environments companies strive for and incorporate remote

participants. An area that has come under great scrutiny is the technology in meeting rooms and finding solutions that will make virtual meetings seamless for all attendees, regardless of their location.

When workers are on trains offering feedback, leading presentations from hotels or developing strategies from home, high-quality audio is critical for collaboration success. With some of the latest next-generation audio conferencing solutions comes the promise of a seamless, frictionless experience for all participants. Everyone will be switched on, tuned in and heard clearly, whatever the conference call or meeting scenario.

The Nureva HDL300 solution

The Nureva HDL300 system has the power to simultaneously process every audio source in a room and deliver a more natural sense of communication. Optimised for small to mid-sized meeting and collaboration spaces, at the core of the HDL300 is Nureva’s Microphone Mist technology. The solution is enabled by real-time hardware and uses sophisticated algorithms to simultaneously process sound from all virtual microphones to provide remote participants with the highest quality listening experience.

8,192 virtual microphones

Powered by Nureva™ Microphone Mist™ technology, the HDL300 system fills a room with 8,192 virtual microphones processing sound in the same way people’s brains do. In conversation, the brain filters noises and distractions to focus on what is being said. Through advanced signal processing algorithms, this effect is replicated by intelligently focusing on what the person wants to hear and reducing all other noise. Every one of the thousands of microphones is always on, even with multiple people in the room talking and moving. No matter where the speaker is standing or how they move, a microphone will pick up their voice.

Meetings never sounded so clear

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.

Why the Nureva HDL300 system?


Supporting active collaboration and remote participation simply isn’t possible without carefully considered high-quality audio delivered by a next-generation audio conferencing system. Some companies still believe that using a speakerphone will suffice when inviting remote participants into team collaboration meetings. However, shoddy audio will only disengage remote workers and hamper any collaboration efforts.

  • Listens to all microphones simultaneously, dynamically selecting the one closest to the speaker
  • Ensures the best quality sound for people outside of the room
  • No matter where someone stands, how they move, or what direction they’re facing, one of the thousands of microphones will pick up their voice
  • Ideas can be heard from anywhere – the back of the room, in front of a display or even the other side of the continent
