Biamp Systems’ All-New Tesira 2.4 and HD-1 Hardware Dialer Now Available

BEAVERTON, Oregon — Oct. 20, 2015 — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced the availability of its all-new Tesira(R) 2.4 platform and HD-1 hardware dialer. Designed to meet the needs of today’s VoIP and POTS conferencing requirements, the solutions provide customers with innovations such as new Lync(R) Enterprise Voice and Skype(R) for Business integration capabilities, an intuitive physical dialing device, and a number of networking enhancements. 

“As distance communication becomes more and more engrained into daily workflows, Biamp identified a market need for solutions that can easily streamline the user’s conferencing experience,” said Justin O’Connor, audio products manager for Biamp Systems. “The combination of our enhanced Tesira platform capabilities and new hardware dialer provide workplaces with a comprehensive solution that, among other things, can get a conference up and running in mere moments with a traditional dialing interface.”

Supporting Lync Enterprise Voice and Skype for Business, Tesira 2.4 increases the flexibility of teleconferencing applications that utilize either of these Microsoft(R) suites as the VoIP server by turning a TesiraFORTÉ into a VoIP endpoint for any Microsoft-based system. Lync Enterprise Voice and Skype for Business integration can be used on AVB and non-AVB configurations of TesiraFORTÉ VI, as well as Tesira SERVER and any SERVER-IOs equipped with the SVC-2 card.

Biamp’s HD-1 hardware dialer instantly interacts with Tesira to allow users to carry out VoIP- or POTS-based calls easily. Sleekly designed, the HD-1 is powered by PoE and features a backlit LCD display, as well as a 12-button dial pad with 13 dedicated function buttons and four menu navigation buttons. Other features include call status, programmable speed dials, recently dialed numbers, multi-line support, and hold and flash functions. The device is compatible with Tesira SERVER and SERVER-IO, as well as AVB and non-AVB configurations of TesiraFORTÉ TI and TesiraFORTÉ VI.

The HD-1 hardware dialer is now shipping. Tesira 2.4 firmware and software upgrades are available for download in the software and firmware section on Biamp’s website. More information on Biamp’s full line of products is available at
