CHAT 50 From ClearOne Receives Perfect Scores From Internet Telephony Magazine
Posted on Tuesday, November 25, 2008

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ClearOne (Nasdaq: CLRO), the leading global provider of high performance audio conferencing solutions, is proud to announce that its CHAT 50 received perfect scores in a recent review by Internet Telephony magazine. A personal speakerphone, the CHAT 50 provides crystal-clear, hands-free audio communications for use with Internet phones such as Skype or Vonage, web conferencing applications such as WebEx or LiveMeeting, instant messaging applications, audio playback, and PC-based gaming. The CHAT 50 is the perfect audio peripheral and can connect to PCs or laptops, telephones, desktop video conferencing devices, MP3 players, and many cell phones.

"In the case of the CHAT 50, the idea here is to take ClearOne's excellent hands-free, full-duplex, echo cancelling technology and imbue it into a small, portable device for habitual travelers and road warriors -- a diminutive gizmo that, nevertheless, has the ability to connect to a range of available devices for conferencing purposes whenever the need arises," said Richard "Zippy" Grigonis, Executive Editor of TMC's IP Communications Group, publisher of Internet Telephony magazine. "In all, the CHAT 50 is a great communications accessory for anybody who must instantly set up a home office away from home."

The review appeared in the November issue of the magazine and rated the CHAT 50 in the following categories: Installation, Documentation, Features, Usability, Performance, and Overall. Ratings in each category can range from zero to 5. The CHAT 50 received a 5 -- the highest rating -- in every category.

"We have always felt that the CHAT 50 was the world's best kept secret," said Mark Child , Director of Product Marketing - Telephony, at ClearOne. "Internet Telephony's review not only supports our own opinion of this great little product, but will go a long way toward getting the word out. As more and more companies focus their attention on reducing travel costs and improving quality communication with remote employees, the CHAT 50 becomes a very attractive solution."
