ClearOne, a manufacturer of conferencing, collaboration, and network streaming solutions, is returning to CEDIA 2021 to demonstrate its line of Aura work-from-home (WFH) audio and video collaboration solutions in Booth #4560.
“The future of work and learning requires the set-up of professional quality audio and video collaboration solutions in the home,” comments Zee Hakimoglu, chair and CEO, ClearOne.
