ClearOne systems specified at PPDS Munich showroom


PPDS has installed virtual collaboration systems from ClearOne, alongside cutting-edge Philips professional displays, in its first full-solutions showroom in Munich, Germany.

The 155sq m showroom is designed to highlight new solutions for various spaces and client types, with dedicated rooms set up to demonstrate how new technologies can be integrated to optimise conference rooms, meeting rooms, retail spaces, classrooms, hotel rooms and home offices.

Each space provides an example of an optimised technology implementation. The conference room, for example, features a nearly-invisible ClearOne BMA 360 in-ceiling beamforming microphone and a ClearOne UNITE 200 PTZ 1080p camera, which are connected to a ClearOne CONVERGE Pro 2 DSP without any visible wires. Combined with a variety of display options including an 86” touch screen, multiple digital signage displays and two digital picture frames, this solution provides stunning clarity and simplicity for all virtual collaboration needs. The entire room, including hidden in-wall speakers and a wireless presentation system, is managed by a Crestron control system.

Other rooms feature solutions scaled to various needs and budget ranges, such as the classroom, which utilises a Philips 86” interactive touch display in conjunction with a ClearOne UNITE 50 camera, CHAT 150 USB speakerphone and a wireless sharing and presentation solution.

Christian Krela, channel manager for PPDS in Germany, said this is the company’s first demo space to focus on full-room solutions with collaboration and streaming technologies. “Integrators trust PPDS to provide innovative display products for every kind of project, and the new showroom demonstrates how leading third-party solutions, such as ClearOne’s collaboration gear, can complement our Philips class-leading displays to meet the needs of modern businesses,” she added. “We designed this space to ensure local integrators and end-customers can gain hands-on experience with whole-room solutions that include displays, cameras, microphones, speakers and control systems, to help them make decisions regarding room designs and technology solutions.”

“We chose various ClearOne solutions because they provide stellar performance, are compatible with all the other equipment and software, and can be installed with virtually no visible intrusion into a room’s aesthetic.”

Krela said other camera and microphone solutions were considered, but ClearOne was the ideal choice to deliver premium performance without requiring visible boxy components or wires, which would detract from the experience and could impact sales.
