Expert Product Review
Nureva HDL 300 Review - By Timothy Gard, Chief Learning Strategist
I’ve always been a fan of easy. Easy setups, easy installations, and easy on the nerves. As someone who has been in countless mid-sized and large rooms where the audio and visual design looks extreme and complicated, requiring a handful of experts close by to ensure that everything is up and running, you’ll want to read through this review of a revolutionary product that makes easy look easy. Imagine an audio-conferencing solution that provides everyone with a virtual microphone that picks up a person’s voice in any part of the room. No need for a lapel mike, multiple microphone setups, or remaining in one spot to speak!
