MAX IP Response PointMAX(TM) IP Response Point is the only conferencing phone solution for Microsoft’s voice-activated phone system for small business.

SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 17 — ClearOne (Nasdaq: CLRO), the leading provider of high performance audio conferencing solutions, is announcing the industry’s first conference phone for the Microsoft Response Point phone system at the ITEXPO conference in Los Angeles, CA, today. MAX IP Response Point is a tabletop conferencing system that brings high performance audio quality capabilities to users of Microsoft’s popular small business phone system.

Launched by Microsoft in March of 2007, Response Point is a small business Internet Protocol (IP) phone system that supports both voice over IP (VoIP) and traditional analog phone lines and includes a voice-activated user interface. Currently, the Response Point system runs on hardware available from Aastra, D-Link, and Quanta. The MAX IP Response Point is compatible with all three hardware systems and is the only conference phone available in the market today for the Response Point system.

“ClearOne is a market leader in high performance group audio and we are excited to offer Response Point users a quality phone conferencing system,” said Xuedong Huang, General Manager, Microsoft Response Point. “The MAX IP Response Point from ClearOne is a great option for small businesses who want advanced conferencing capabilities.”

MAX IP Response Point contains ClearOne’s sophisticated HDConference(TM) advanced audio processing technologies. Originally developed for professional conferencing systems, HDConference produces crystal-clear audio through technologies such as Distributed Echo Cancellation(TM), noise cancellation, full-duplex audio, first microphone priority, adaptive modeling, and ClearEffect(TM). By simply pressing the blue Response Point button on the phone’s keypad, users are instantly connected to the voice-activated phone system.

MAX IP Response Point provides expansion capabilities that are unmatched in the industry. Users can daisy-chain up to four complete phones together in order to provide better audio coverage for larger rooms and U-shaped tables. By linking multiple phones, business users benefit not only from multiple microphones at each phone, but also additional loudspeakers and keypads, providing outstanding full-room coverage and control. With all phones connected, the entire system can be operated using the dial pad of any single phone.

“We are extremely happy to be first to market with a conference phone developed for Microsoft’s Response Point phone system,” said Zee Hakimoglu, CEO at ClearOne. “Small businesses comprise the vast majority of U.S. enterprises and the Response Point phone system brings these business owners tremendous cost, performance, and support benefits. The MAX IP Response Point conference phone is the perfect add-on to these systems, giving businesses a powerful audio collaboration tool. We look forward to working with the Microsoft small business channel partners to bring the MAX IP Response Point conference phone into this growing market ecosystem.”
