Yamaha Unified Communications has announced the debut of a professional audio conferencing solution specifically engineered for seamless and easy installation out of the box into boardrooms and large conference rooms utilising UC applications.
Currently only available only in North America, the Yamaha YAI-1 Conference Ensemble is a preconfigured USB audio system that achieves optimum audio in and audio out for an organization's chosen UC platform.
"All organisations are moving toward UC applications — even in larger conferencing spaces," said Phil Marechal, VP of business development and product management, Yamaha Unified Communications.
"While these solutions provide a great way to communicate, they don't include the equipment or USB audio inputs and outputs necessary to maintain consistent, professional-grade communication throughout a meeting. The Yamaha YAI-1 Conference Ensemble meets the toughest audio expectations within these rooms, with all the required components to achieve best audio capture and best audio output while maximizing installation and configuration efficiencies."

The ready-to-install professional audio system comprises an eight-channel Executive Elite wireless microphone package, two VXL 1-16 PoE speaker arrays, a preconfigured digital signal processor, a five-port PoE switch, Dante AVIO USB adapter, and cabling. Once set up, the Yamaha YAI-1 Conference Ensemble is ready to connect to an organisation's chosen UC platform through a single USB cable, such as Skype for Business, Cisco Webex, GoToConference™, Zoom, BlueJeans, Amazon Chime and many others.
Ensuring that every participant can hear and be heard clearly, the bundle includes two 16-element PoE powered line array speakers that deliver high-quality audio throughout the room and a wireless microphone system that enables flexible, superior audio capture and stress-free conversation.
The system is available in two microphone options: an eight-gooseneck microphone package for boardrooms, or seven table-top microphones and one wearable microphone for presentation flexibility in conference rooms.
