ClearOne, a leading global audio and visual communication solutions provider, announces Google Meet certification of its Versa Lite CT, a USB audio-enabled Beamforming Ceiling Tile Microphone that brings cost-effective and superb professional conferencing audio to small- and mid-sized spaces enhancing the meeting room, classroom, and work-from-home experience.
Google Meet ranks among the top 5 for growth in the cloud meetings and team collaboration market, according to a recent Frost & Sullivan report. With Google Meet certification of ClearOne’s Versa Lite CT, users can be confident that they will have an outstanding collaboration experience.
The ClearOne COLLABORATE® Versa Lite CT is a professional USB-enabled audio-conferencing microphone system designed to dramatically enhance the audio experience with natural-sounding conversations and highly intelligible speech. It includes a beamforming microphone array with full 360° coverage, full-duplex transmission, AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation), Adaptive Steering (think of it as smart switching), and a ceiling-tile form factor and optional adapter for home office ceilings.
Also included is the Versa USB Expander. Consumers use a USB cable to connect the Versa USB expander to the USB port of their laptop or room computer for crystal-clear room audio.
When using Google Meet, users can easily expand the Versa Lite CT system with a variety of ClearOne peripherals. The addition of ClearOne’s Bluetooth wall panel enables mobile devices to join the conference wirelessly. Adding the ClearOne Versa HUB enables users to connect a variety of ClearOne UNITE® conferencing cameras and up to two room displays. The HUB enables users to connect all their peripherals to a laptop or room computer via a single USB cable.
To be certified by Google for Google Meet, manufacturers must demonstrate that they have a legitimate long-term commitment to building solutions for Google Meet hardware, sign Google’s Co-Development and Hardware Support Agreements, meet all testing criteria, complete all qualification testing with Google’s approved lab, and receive a passing report.
