At ISE 2023, Biamp announced an assortment of new products ranging from loudspeakers and amplifiers to a collaboration with Lenovo to deliver the ThinkSmart Core and Controller Kit-based solutions configured for Microsoft Teams Rooms or Zoom Rooms.
End-to-End Conference Room Solutions
The Lenovo ThinkSmart Core and Controller Kit can be paired with any Biamp room solution to offer a complete UC Room, allowing integrators to source an end-to-end conference room solution from Biamp. The collaboration features the Lenovo ThinkSmart Core, a computing device based on the Intel vPro platform, and a Controller display, Premier Support, and ThinkSmart Manager software for remote manageability, deployment, and more. The small size with integrated cable management and VESA mounts enables speedy installation and placement in tight spaces.
Biamp also announced its new Voltera family of power amplifiers. The new line of amplifiers consists of four models that are compact, flexible, reliable, efficient for commercial install applications, and designed to meet ENERGY STAR requirements.
The Voltera family includes four models, two of which are two-channel analog amplifiers delivering a total of 300 or 600 watts that can be shared as desired per channel, and two that are four-channel analog amplifiers delivering a total of 300 or 600 watts, of which up to 50 percent can be delivered by any channel. Simple, intuitive mode switches enable fast deployment of any mix of Lo-Z/Hi-Z loudspeakers. Voltera amplifiers do not require software configuration, making them fast and easy to use with passive loudspeakers that do not need equalization.
Expanded Loudspeaker Portfolio
The Beaverton, Oregon-based supplier of professional audiovisual solutions also introduced a series of new additions to its loudspeaker portfolio designed to solve installation challenges across an array of applications. The new additions include the Desono™ C-IC6LP and DX-IC6LP low profile, high-efficiency ceiling-mount loudspeakers for conference rooms, as well as a range of affordable commercial loudspeakers compatible with the Vocia line of voice communication solutions, all of which are now available globally.
The Desono C-IC6LP and DX-IC6LP offer the shallowest, low-profile ceiling loudspeaker form factors on the market with just a 4” (10 cm) mounting depth. Optimized for superior speech reproduction in conferencing environments, the C-IC6LP is a two-way 6.5” (16.5 cm) passive coaxial loudspeaker with either standard category cable or traditional speaker cable installation connection. Biamp also introduced the DC220T, a 2’ x 2’ (61 cm x 61 cm) lay-in tile ceiling loudspeaker that provides wide coverage and higher output, ideal for high ceiling applications. The Biamp CM10TB is a one-way 5.5” (14 cm) in-ceiling back-can loudspeaker that delivers clear audio for speech reinforcement applications.
Additionally, for even greater system integration flexibility when designing end-to-end Vocia voice communication systems, newly enhanced commercial horn and surface mount loudspeakers are now available worldwide thanks to the inclusion of 70V taps.
