ClearOne Converge Pro 2 Series now supports Skype for Business
Following on last year’s announcement that Skype for Business is now available on its Collaborate Pro product line, ClearOne has introduced a system upgrade that allows the Converge Pro 2 48V, 128V and 128VD DSP Mixers to support built-in Skype for Business client for installed audio conferencing applications.
The announcement was made at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam.
Skype for Business in Converge Pro 2 VoIP units is available through a free upgrade for the software and firmware, and doesn’t require any changes to the hardware.
It works with both cloud and on-premise Skype for Business Servers, and is compatible with all other Skype for Business clients. Skype for Business allows for point-to-point audio conferencing, multi-party audio conferencing, and access to a complete call history. Additionally, there are new and separate Converge Pro 2 Dialer applications for Skype for Business that are available on Android and the Touch-Panel Controller. The Integrator can choose to configure the Converge Pro 2 units for regular SIP based VoIP conferencing or Skype for Business conferencing.
ClearOne’s Converge Pro 2 is optimised to work with the new Beamforming Mic Array 2, the new Dialog 20 2-Channel Wireless Microphone System and the new USB Expander units through native connections. Three models, the 48V, 128V and 128VD, feature built-in VoIP and provide high-quality VoIP conferencing. Now these three models can be upgraded to support built-in Skype for Business also.
The free upgrade for the Converge Pro 2 software and firmware will be available at the end of the month at the ClearOne website.
