ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) says its will soon be shipping a new, value-priced version of its VIEW Pro D210 decoder that enables high-quality, low-latency AV media streaming over existing IP networks.

The company says the cost-efficient network device is suitable for less-demanding deployments such as digital signage applications where common content is repeated over multiple displays and may not need professional-level audio amplification, or third-party equipment control. Such applications include displays at airports and transportation hubs, hotels, casinos, and shopping malls.

As the newest addition to the ClearOne line of professional streaming components, the D210 decoder incorporates some of the same performance features as the larger VIEW Pro D110 decoder including 1080p60 resolution, H.264 high-definition HDMI video-audio, and 4:4:4 true-color output, the platinum standard for color. It is an attractive compact device that can be easily mounted behind any display.

Complementing the VIEW Pro System, VIEW Virtual Matrix Software displays a simple view of the entire networked media system on a single screen, and provides simple source and destination selection and control options in Windows, Android, and iOS for StreamNet encoders and decoders. Users have control access from any number of input devices, including wall touch-screens, desktops, laptops, and handheld devices.

With the addition of the new D210 decoder, ClearOne contends that it continues to be truly differentiated in the professional market by offering complete AV streaming and distribution systems that can scale to fulfill projects of any size and complexity, from light commercial to the very largest environments.

"By pushing our technology to the edge of the network, the VIEW Pro media streaming solution eliminates the need for costly hardware switching and the limitations of cabling," says Michael Braithwaite, ClearOne's sr. vice president of the Multimedia Streaming Business. "Streaming media over TCP/IP provides significant improvements in flexibility, scalability, price, and performance over traditional AV streaming and distribution methods."
