Boom Launches HALO Business Edition Videobar With Expanded Audio

New Business Edition features an additional microphone and speaker to fit wide range of rooms

Boom Collaboration has launched a bundle option of its HALO videobar with expandable audio. The Boom HALO Business Edition is a videobar that features an additional microphone and speaker to increase the audio range in larger rooms. The standard HALO, which launched earlier this year, provides 4K video with AI facial framing and speaker tracking, with the ability to daisy-chain additional microphones and speakers. Boom Co-Founder Fredrik Hörnkvist says the Business Edition  is ideally suited to a wide range of use cases where extra audio reach is required, such as flexible rooms, dedicated tasks and growing teams.

“Our flagship Boom HALO videobar already features a 4K UHD camera, six beamforming mics and high fidelity speakers for a seamless collaboration experience,” he emphasized. “But as videobars are generally installed at the front of room there’s often limited flexibility for additional audio pick-up especially on a large scale. 

“With the additional speaker/microphone, audio can easily be extended by a further three meters for each device. This is useful in many ways such as for legal depositions which are already proving very popular, or a quietly-spoken CEO who often sits at the far end of a boardroom and struggles to be heard. It’s a bit of a game-changer in terms of total audio capacity.”

The HALO includes features such as intelligent noise reduction, 120° wide angle field of view, 10x zoom, and a smart mic array. Audio specs include a sample rate of 48kHz, dual 10W speakers, Acoustic Echo Cancellation, and Automatic Gain Control. 

The Boom HALO Business Edition is available now in white and black options.
