General Information

Category:Audio Conferencing EquipmentManufacturer:Clearone
Categorization By Manufacturer:Professional ConferencingModel:910-153-590
The systems feature innovative microphone distribution boxes that deliver significant cost savings and flexibility for users:
* Converge 590 allow customers to connect their preferred microphones, such as wireless, tabletop, button and podium using industry-standard XLR connectors.
* The Converge 590 distribution box transports microphone signals over a single Cat 5 cable back to the mixer via distribution boxes significantly reducing on-site wiring complexity and installation time.
* Converge 590 also include an intuitive controller for simple user operation, eliminating the need for more expensive control systems and delivering a much lower total system cost.
The Converge 590 includes:
  • An audio mixer
  • Two microphone distribution boxes with three XLR connectors per box
  • A wired or wireless controller
The Converge 590 comes with the same equipment but adds a third distribution box.
New versions now available! The Converge 590 are now also available without a controller included. These versions provide the perfect fit for room applications that require a third-party control system such as AMX or Crestron, all at an extremely competitive price point.
