ClearOne debuts AccuMic PC
today introduced AccuMic PC, an echo-canceling microphone for use with a personal computer in desktop videoconferencing and webconferencing applications. AccuMic PC uses audio technology from ClearOne's industry leading XAP conferencing systems to deliver high-quality sound and create a hands-free alternative to headset microphones. It has three microphone elements to provide 360-degree audio pickup for small group conferencing, and it can be linked with a second AccuMic PC for use in larger rooms with more participants. It uses a standard stereo (3.5 mm) connector. It will begin shipping this week for $650.
