Biamp has announced the expansion of its Tesira audio and video platform with the addition of new PoE+ amplifier technology and a series of Beamtracking ceiling microphones.
The solutions, which will be on show next month at ISE, are designed to reduce programming time for integrators and provide cost-effective, clear audio quality to end-users.
“Adding these new components to our industry-leading Tesira platform allows our customers to utilise 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 set-up or configuration, increasing the number of Tesira rooms they can install at a decreased cost.”
Providing full 360° 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. The Tesira Beamtracking ceiling microphones are said to actively track and intelligently mix conversations from around the table, with minimal set-up required.
The microphone models include:
- Tesira TCM-1: AVB ceiling microphone with built-in DSP for beamtracking
- Tesira TCM-1A: All of the same features and capabilities of the TCM-1 plus a 2-channel PoE+ amplifier with burst power mode
- 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 Tesira AMP-450P is a new four-channel, PoE+ conferencing amplifier that can be placed wherever it’s needed, including air-handling spaces. Well-suited for ceiling speakers, programme speakers, and mix-minus systems, it’s capable of operating in a burst mode to handle peak loads, providing up to 50W per channel.
