ClearOne Celebrates 30 years of Innovation
1983 was a banner year for companies that would change the world through innovation and ingenuity.
  • McDonald’s introduced the Chicken McNugget in restaurants nationwide.
  • The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) switched its networking technology to TCP/IP, arguably marking the moment that the modern “Internet” came into being.
  • Apple released the Apple IIe personal computer and was produced until late 1993, making it one of the longest-lived personal computers ever made.
  • Microsoft Word was first introduced and 30 years later, it is one of the most widely used pieces of software of all time.  
  • The soft bifocal contact lens was also released to the market and forever changed how people see the world.
  • 1983 was also the year that ClearOne started to become a global company that would design, develop and sell conferencing, collaboration, streaming and digital signage solutions for audio and visual communications. In the past 30 years we have achieved the following:
  • The industry’s first product to use Distributed Audio Echo Cancellation™ in an audio conferencing system.
  • The industry’s first conference phone to provide wireless conferencing.
  • The industry’s first fully-expandable conference phone that daisy-chains multiple phone units.
  • The industry’s first product to bridge the wide price/performance gap that existed between plug-and-play tabletop conferencing phones and professionally-installed audio conferencing systems.
  • Market leader for installed audio—Nearly 50% global market share
To celebrate this achievement, ClearOne invited the employees at the Salt Lake City, Austin, and Corvallis offices to a BBQ lunch, while our office in Israel had a light brunch with CEO Zee Hakimoglu.
We’ve been a leader in Audio and Visual Communications for 10,957 days, and we are just getting started. That equals 3 decades of innovation, and it’s all thanks to you!
