Nearity's audio innovations include full-duplex, AI-driven noise suppression; de-reverberation; advanced daisy-chain technology; and beamforming algorithms to ensure participants are heard clearly. Product lines include dedicated speaker-microphone combinations as well as all-in-one conferencing devices (such as the Nearity C25 (opens in new tab) and C30R (opens in new tab)) that combine a speaker, microphone, and HD or 4K webcam into a single, fully integrated unit. The company's newest development, the Nearity S100 (opens in new tab)USB audio interface, provides bi-directional conversion between line-level, analog audio signals and digital USB signals. This enables USB audio endpoints such as the Nearity A11 (opens in new tab) and A20 (opens in new tab) to be used with legacy video conferencing systems, significantly improving audio quality without the waste of replacing the existing conferencing system.
