Largest US pro AV distributor to accelerate adoption of Nureva® audio conferencing systems

Calgary, Alberta --- May 11, 2021 --- Nureva Inc., an innovator in advanced audio conferencing solutions and Almo Professional AV, the pro AV industry’s most dynamic distributor, have announced a US distribution agreement. Almo will work with its integrators, dealers and consultants to accelerate adoption of Nureva’s revolutionary audio conferencing product line throughout the United States. As the nation’s largest distributor of leading audiovisual solutions, Almo has an expansive coast-to-coast geographic footprint with eight strategically located distribution centers supplying thousands of customers. The company’s well-established and growing network will bring Nureva closer to the largest dealers and integrators in the US and greatly increase market exposure for its audio conferencing systems.

Nureva HDL300 audio conferencing system powered by Microphone Mist technology

Many people across the United States are heading back into offices now that COVID vaccines are being administered, while many others will continue working remotely at least part of the time. The need for reliable audio to accommodate this hybrid way of working will continue for years to come. A recent PwC Remote Work Survey found US executives and employees looking to a post-pandemic future with a lot more flexibility, but few are prepared to completely abandon the office. According to the survey, most companies are heading toward a hybrid workplace that will begin to take shape in the second quarter of 2021 where employees rotate in and out of offices configured as shared spaces. Recognizing that this trend has been accelerated by the pandemic, Almo is well positioned to expand and accelerate the market for Nureva’s audio conferencing product line, which is an ideal fit for the hybrid workplace.

Powered by patented Microphone Mist™ technology, Nureva audio conferencing systems bring clear, reliable audio to meeting and learning spaces. The technology fills a room with thousands of virtual microphones so in-room participants can move around, maintain physical distance and still be heard clearly by remote participants. The Nureva product line includes the HDL200 for small rooms, HDL300 for mid-size rooms and Dual HDL300 for large rooms. They all feature true full-room microphone pickup, easy installation and continuous autocalibration that automatically adapts to any room configuration.

“Nureva is one of the first companies to offer a room-based audio solution that successfully combines ease-of-use, simplified deployment and flexible room coverage at a reasonable price point,” explained Rob Ziv, vice president of business development and strategy, Almo Professional AV. “Nureva products are now part of the Almo Sound Options professional audio group, which provides a curated portfolio of audio products combined with the audio-specific sales, technical and engineering expertise needed to complete a successful AV installation through a single source.” He added, “This distribution arrangement gives Almo partners in-stock, ready-to-ship access to Nureva products, and that is ideal for audio installations that must be completed right away, especially as employees return to their on-site workspaces.”

“Almo is a highly reputable AV distribution company, and we are excited to work with them to accelerate adoption of our products in business and higher education,” said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “With their renowned expertise and solid distribution experience, we expect that Almo will build on our success and substantially grow our channel beyond our established channel.”
