Biamp Debuts Next Generation of Nexia Processors
Aug 2, 2006 3:45 PM
Biamp introduced its newest line of digital signal processors: the Nexia VC and Nexia TC. Designed specifically to provide crisp, clear audio in any videoconferencing or teleconferencing application, the Nexia VC and Nexia TC processors are intuitive, network-ready processors that provide a full range of audio routing and signal processing features, including full wide-band acoustic echo cancellation, in single, economical, easy-to-install boxes.
Shipping in early August, the Nexia VC and Nexia TC processors feature Biamp's 20Hz-to-20kHz acoustic echo cancellation during multiple participant conversations. Previously available only in the AEC2w add-on cards for Biamp's AudiaFlex, this wideband acoustic echo canceling greatly enhances intelligibility and audio performance in conference settings, especially videoconferences. Nexia VC and Nexia TC also feature a network-friendly open architecture design that allows integrators to customize each unit to meet each project's room-specific criteria.
Biamp's proprietary Nexia software makes Nexia VC and Nexia TC customization easy, allowing integrators to create intuitive custom control programs and choose between Ethernet ports for password-protected access via any networked PC, or serial ports for third party remote controls.
"Nexia VC and Nexia TC are both out-of-the-box, easy to install products that will save integrators and end users alike time and effort and, ultimately, money," comments Matt Czyzewski, vice president of technical operations, Biamp. "Nexia VC and TC are economical, intuitive solutions for any audio or video network, and give integrators the functionality of Biamp's Nexia and some of the flexibility of the Audia Digital Audio Platformall in a single rackspace box!"
With 10 dedicated mic/line inputseight with AEC and two standardand four mic/line outputs, Nexia VC and Nexia TC units can accommodate an audio system on its own, or can be linked via Ethernet and/or NexLink to create multi-unit systems that can accommodate larger audio networks. Each Nexia processor features an application-specific interface: the Nexia VC with a codec interface and the Nexia TC with a telephone interface on a pair of RJ11 jacks. Both units offer analog inputs and outputs and internal 24-bit A/D and D/A converters operating at a sample rate of 48kHz.
The Nexia VC and Nexia TC are CE marked, UL Listed and covered under Biamp's five-year warranty.
