Nureva Integrates with Extron to Enable Sound Tracking

Nureva Inc., an innovator in advanced IT-first audio conferencing solutions, announced its HDL300 and Dual HDL300 audio conferencing systems now integrate with Extron control and automation solutions to deliver camera-tracking features that support hybrid working and learning.

Extron used Nureva’s sound location device API, available through Nureva Developer Toolkit, to update the Extron Control Systems Driver. The Extron control processor receives soundtracking data from the HDL300 and Dual HDL300 systems and sends a preset recall command to steer camera views to the location of the person speaking.

The supplied audio location data leverages Nureva’s patented Microphone Mist technology, which fills a room with thousands of virtual microphones so everyone can be heard everywhere in space. Sound direction, location and level are reported several times per second to enable automatic camera adjustments based on the location of the active speakers. This results in more refined camera positioning and switching and a better experience for remote participants.

Hundreds of cameras by manufacturers integrate the use of preset recalls with the Extron control processor. With the launch of this integration, Nureva HDL300 and Dual HDL300 audio systems can supply voice tracking data to any of those cameras with the simple installation of the Extron driver.

Nureva’s sound location device API was created as part of a program to work with companies like Extron on steering cameras with Nureva audio systems to improve and simplify remote collaboration.
