Yamaha Unified Communications is helping to ensure that the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute – a research organisation specialising in bioinformatics, computational biology, and systems biology – is delivering quality lectures, meetings, and research presentations, including Covid-19 analysis. After experiencing poor audio and control system integration challenges with off-the-shelf consumer-grade conferencing equipment, integration firm Horizon AVL selected Yamaha’s CS-700 video sound bar and YVC-1000 microphone and speaker system.
Yamaha CS-700 resolved poor audio issues that the Biocomplexity Institute experienced in the huddle rooms, as well as a lack of interoperability with the Crestron control systems. Inside the institute’s medium and large conference rooms, Horizon AVL installed Yamaha YVC-1000 microphone and speaker system integrated with Huddly cameras.
“Audio sets the tone for remote collaboration,” said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha UC. “If those on the far end can’t hear you or if the product is hard to use, it’s really challenging to create a high-caliber experience for anyone. The installation at the Biocomplexity Institute is a great example of how organisations can deliver better, more productive meetings and classes with easy-to-use conferencing tools built for intelligible, natural conversation.”
