Boom Fuels The Video Bar Fire With New Arrival

Jan 9th 2024

Conferencing manufacturer Boom Collaboration has expanded its video bar portfolio with the arrival of an intelligent all-in-one solution which is ideally suited for larger rooms.

The flagship Boom HALO features a 4K UHD camera, six microphone array and high fidelity speakers for a seamless collaboration experience.

Available in white and black colors, it boasts many advanced features such as facial recognition, speaker tracking, intelligent noise reduction and AI auto-framing. Additional ports allow for audio expansion for flexible rooms and growing teams.

Boom Collaboration was born in 2020 by founders Fredrik Hörnkvist and Holli Hulett. The Texas-based business has quickly developed an extensive conferencing portfolio and operates in over 30 countries after a successful expansion programme during 2023.

“There’s little doubt the popularity of video bars will continue to grow this year and the Boom HALO will add more fuel to the fire,” says Hulett.

“With 120° wide angle field of view, 10x zoom and smart mic array, the HALO detects both participants and speakers in real time locking in on attendees and allowing for hands-free operation. Six array MEMS microphones and a superior 4K lens with an eight megapixel CMOS sensor ensure an exceptional meeting experience for a variety of spaces.”

Excellent audio

Hörnkvist highlighted the HALO’s excellent audio quality. “High-fidelity audio with a 48kHz sampling rate and dual 10W speakers provide lossless audio and full spectrum sound for meeting participants. Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Automatic Gain Control further enhance the meeting experience and work to ensure full duplex quality at a distance of six meters.”

He pointed out how Bluetooth 5.0 allows for easy pairing with mobile phones and other

devices while expansion ports for additional microphones and speakers ensure optimal coverage for any space.

He added: “Plug-and-play simplicity is created from USB 3.0. Users can simply connect and enjoy their favorite video conferencing platform. Furthermore an automatic privacy shutter is combined with the ability to disengage wireless connectivity for added security.”

Boom’s video bar portfolio also includes the high performance AURA and compact UNO for smaller and personal use. All are backed by a three-year warranty.
