Inside our technology

For years, conference call technology was stuck — leaving frustrated users hoping for the kind of breakthrough that has transformed other sectors. Microphone Mist technology is that breakthrough.

Patented innovation

With multiple patents from the US and EU patent and trademark offices, Microphone Mist technology is our secret to making mic pickup in larger rooms as easy as it is in smaller rooms. Its precise sound location data enhances camera tracking and automated camera switching. And with a track record of one innovation after another, it’s always getting better.

Microphone Mist virtual mic

The virtual mic difference

A virtual microphone is an individual pickup point created when two or more physical microphones work together to focus their sound pickup on a distinct location. Microphone Mist technology listens to each virtual mic simultaneously and zeroes in on the predominant sounds. The result? Natural sounding conversations, even when multiple people talk at the same time.

Microphone Mist technology continuously captures audio in every inch of the room, while beamforming systems can only capture it within active beams.

What to expect

  • Full-room microphone pickup
  • Continuous autocalibration
  • Simultaneous processing
  • Intelligent Sound Targeting
  • Position-based gain control

With thousands of virtual microphones filling your space, there’s always one nearby. People can speak and act naturally in meetings and classes and be confident they’ll be heard by those who are remote.

With our technology, you don’t need to recalibrate your systems manually. Your audio system is automatically and continuously adapting to changes in your room’s acoustic profile.

Microphone Mist technology listens to and processes all virtual microphones simultaneously. Conversations sound natural, even when more than one person is speaking at the same time.

HVAC and other unwanted sounds can seriously affect your audio. So, instead of trying to suppress these noises after the fact, we use adaptive learning algorithms to preemptively ignore them.

We apply gain separately to each sound in a space based on its position, creating a natural listening experience for remote participants.

Unified coverage map

Our patent-pending unified coverage map enables the physical mics from two microphone and speaker bars to be processed together instead of separately, creating a giant microphone array that spans the entire room. Each virtual mic is targeted with greater precision, resulting in clearer, more consistent audio.

Nureva took an entirely new approach when it created Microphone Mist technology — starting from a “blank sheet of paper” with the goal of finally solving long-standing issues with traditional audio conferencing. Read the full story.

Nureva’s patented Microphone Mist technology fills a room with thousands of virtual microphones. Each virtual microphone is a point in a space where two or more physical microphones work together intelligently to focus on audio pickup. Microphone Mist technology listens to each virtual mic simultaneously and optimizes each one for natural conversations.

Each Nureva audio system uses Microphone Mist technology to fill rooms with thousands of virtual microphones, enabling full-room microphone pickup in larger spaces. The HDL410 system deploys 16,384 virtual mics in spaces up to 35' x 55' (10.7 x 16.8 m). The HDL310 system deploys 8,192 virtual mics in spaces up to 30' x 30' (9.1 x 9.1 m). The HDL300 system deploys 8,192 virtual mics in spaces up to 25' x 25' (7.6 x 7.6 m). The HDL200 system deploys 4,096 virtual mics in spaces up to 18' x 18' (5.5 x 5.5 m).

Our innovative technology has been granted multiple patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office. They recognize our unique approach to position-based gain control, echo reduction, sound targeting and more. Read about our patents.

By filling spaces with thousands of virtual microphones, our audio systems can provide accurate location data for where people are talking within the room. This sound location data is used to automatically switch between multiple cameras (any USB or HDMI camera works), allowing remote participants to easily follow conversations and see who’s speaking. We also have specific integrations with brands like AVer, Lumens and PTZOptics to enhance camera tracking and switching.

Hear it. Believe it.

Our demos have amazed thousands of IT pros — including some very skeptical ones. But you’ll have to experience one for yourself — live, 15 minutes, customized — to get what the excitement is about.
