SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), a global communications and entertainment solutions company, today announced a strategic relationship with The Eig Group of New Jersey to implement a comprehensive national program promoting ClearOne's full line of Professional AV and network-based StreamNet™ technology products to professional consultants involved in the design and installation of major audio-visual projects.
"We anticipated the emergence of network-based standards in AV and conferencing solutions, and have developed exceptional products and technology to serve this market today," said Zee Hakimoglu, chairman and CEO of ClearOne. "The Eig Group's standing in the professional AV industry will ensure the pro market is aware and well informed about the suitability and reliability of our audio-video conferencing solutions, as well as our StreamNet technology for these installations."
"A partnership with ClearOne will bring exciting new opportunities in both conferencing technologies and TCP/IP distribution to consultants and integrators alike," said Lewis Eig, President of the Eig Group. "ClearOne's cost-effective, scalable and easy to implement solutions should attract substantial interest in our industry."
The Eig Group's work with ClearOne will fall into three areas: the creation of an industry consultants committee to increase information exchange and dialogue between consultants and ClearOne; increase promotion of StreamNet as a foundation technology for conferencing, distributed AV and system control; and develop and implement training programs best suited to consultants' needs.
"The consultant-specifier community is well aware of movement toward network-based solutions," said Jim Breen, ClearOne's Director of Multimedia and Networking Products. "But they don't realize the power or versatility of StreamNet to address a broad range of needs. The Eig Group will help in changing that, and in raising the regard for StreamNet technology-and ClearOne's full professional line-to the AV community."
