Biamp Systems Takes Cost-Effective, Easy-to-Install Conference Rooms to the Next Level
Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, announced the expansion of its Tesira® audio and video platform. During ISE 2018 in Amsterdam, Biamp demonstrated its latest innovations, including new power over Ethernet (PoE+) amplifier technology and a series of Beamtracking™ ceiling microphones that raise the bar for an exceptional conferencing experience. Biamp’s whole-room, all-digital solutions are designed to reduce programming time for integrators and provide cost-effective, crystal-clear audio quality to end users.
“Adding these new components to our industry-leading Tesira platform allows our customers to utilize Biamp products with a total room solution in mind,” said Zach Snook, audio product manager, Biamp Systems. “Our new microphone and amplifier technologies facilitate increased productivity by delivering the best audio quality. This enables integrators to take advantage of new features without requiring extensive setup or configuration, increasing the number of Tesira rooms they can install at a decreased cost.”
Providing full 360-degree room coverage, each of the new Tesira microphones use Biamp’s Beamtracking technology to identify and lock to a signal source — even if the person speaking is moving around. With little or no setup required, the Tesira Beamtracking ceiling microphones actively track and intelligently mix conversations from around the table, allowing everyone on the call to be heard. The microphone models include:
- Tesira TCM-1: AVB ceiling microphone with built-in DSP for beamtracking. Comprising a pendant microphone and plenum box, each microphone includes Beamtracking™ technology with three 120-degree zones, providing full 360-degree coverage of the meeting space. The TCM-1 microphone actively tracks and intelligently mixes conversations from around the table, allowing far-end conference participants to experience the conversation naturally.
- Tesira TCM-1A: All of the same features and capabilities of the TCM-1 plus a 2-channel PoE+ amplifier with burst power mode. The 2-channel PoE+ amplifier includes an internal limiter, selectable power, and is also capable of operating in a burst mode to handle peak signals, providing up to 40 watts (4Ω load) or 30 watts (8Ω load) per channel.
- Tesira TCM-1EX: An expansion microphone specifically designed to be daisy-chained to either the TCM-1 or TCM-1A microphone for expanded coverage within the space
The new Tesira AMP-450P is a four-channel, PoE+ conferencing amplifier that can be placed wherever it’s needed, including air-handling spaces. Well-suited for ceiling speakers, program speakers, and mix-minus systems, it’s capable of operating in a burst mode to handle peak loads, providing up to 50 watts per channel.
Tesira is an ideal platform, offering an expanse of options for conference rooms of all sizes. For smaller conference rooms, solutions are available that utilize a single Ethernet cable to connect a TesiraFORTÉ® AVB VT4 to the new Tesira TCM-1A Beamtracking microphone for an exceptional conferencing experience. For larger conference rooms, use a TesiraFORTÉ AVB VT in conjunction with the Tesira AMP-450P and TCM-1 for an equally compelling audio experience.
