ClearOne Showcases Next-Generation Audio Conferencing Technologies at 2007 Integrated Systems EuropeSALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)----ClearOne (OTC: CLRO.OB) , a global provider of audio conferencing products, today announced that the Company will showcase their state-of-the-art audio conferencing solutions at the 2007 Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam, from January 30-February 2, in booth R20.

Attendees at the show will have the opportunity to view the newly-released Chat™ 150, ClearOne's innovative high-performance audio peripheral that connects to enterprise telephone handsets. Customers will now have the ability to add a high-quality, full-duplex speaker phone to their handsets, and still retain the full functionality that comes with today's handsets, including access to the company directory, voicemail, audio bridge functions, etc. This provides a perfect solution for executive offices and smaller conference rooms, and eliminates the need to bring in additional telephone lines. ClearOne will initially offer connectivity to Avaya® handsets, with additional connectivity to other manufacturers' phones to follow.

The Chat 150 is also available in PC and video conferencing versions, delivering full-duplex, high-performance audio for PC-based collaboration applications and set-top video conferencing systems.

ClearOne will also showcase an upcoming major addition to its professional conference line, the next-generation Converge™ Pro series of professional-grade conferencing systems. The product is scheduled to ship in the first half of 2007 and will eventually replace the popular XAP® series of audio conferencing systems. The new Converge Pro series delivers significant feature set and performance improvements including unprecedented acoustical echo cancellation, noise cancellation, full duplex performance, enhanced management capabilities, and simplified configuration utilities.

In addition, ClearOne will display the other products that round out the most complete audio conferencing product line in the industry, including the Chat 50 personal speaker phone, the MAX® and MAXAttach™ series of wired, wireless, and SIP-based VoIP conference phones, the RAV 600 and 900 premium audio conferencing systems, the Converge 560 and 590 professional audio conferencing systems, and ClearOne's market-leading XAP professional audio conferencing platform.
