What is it? An audio processor and controller for boardroom, courtroom and classroom audio applications. Details Claro is a single rack unit that provides 12 balanced inputs, each of which can be configured as a microphone or line input – including phantom power – and four line outputs. Inputs and outputs are connected via Phoenix Euroblock connectors. Claro also offers a dedicated Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) processor on each input, allowing up to 12 mics to be managed in teleconferencing applications. Claro supports VoIP and POTS telephony through its telephone hybrid interface. The rear panel provides 12 GPIO connections, RS-485 and RS-232 ports plus multiple Ethernet connections for interconnection and control. A complete range of DSP mixing, routing and processing functions are also available such as EQ, filters, delays, compressor/limiters, meters and test signal generators – all accessible and controllable via an external GUI. Claro is said to scale easily across multiple rooms; up to four units can be interconnected via its audio expansion interface to extend its capacity to 48 inputs and 16 outputs. And another thing… A front panel USB connection allows quick and easy access to the processing and control functions, or to play back content during conferences.
