The past few years have seen tremendous growth for meeting rooms and hybrid working technology. Audio is one of the most important elements of keeping employees connected inside and outside of the office. Without high-quality audio, meetings feel remote, and participants feel disengaged.
Today, the working space, whether that’s at home, in the office or on-the-go, needs to be a multisensory experience. Relying on a laptop microphone won’t cut it anymore. Meeting spaces require excellent audio technology that drives productivity and enables fluid collaboration. To facilitate this, we expanded our portfolio and partnered with Biamp in March 2020 and Biamp quickly became our best-selling audio brand. But it’s not just audio products, Biamp has an extensive portfolio of AV equipment to offer.
“We partnered with Midwich back at the beginning of the pandemic with the completion of Brexit looming. Together, we negotiated the turbulent waters that were to follow with relative ease, and I must note what an absolute joy it has been to work with such a fantastic team. I am incredibly proud that Biamp are exhibiting at our first Tech Xpo as a platinum sponsor!” – Alex Farrell, Sales Manager, UK&I at Biamp.
Tech Xpo is a unique opportunity to meet the Biamp team and uncover new opportunities and partnerships. Biamp is constantly on the hunt for new innovations to make the lives of the installer easier while delivering extraordinary AV experiences to the end-user. Biamp will be showcasing their exciting new product range for 2022 including their award-winning Conference Bars, Cameras and long-anticipated Impera Control products.
Plus, they will be running live demonstrations throughout the event of the new Video Conferencing Bar! Set between two rooms, you can experience both ends of the videocall, showcasing the new Audio Intelligence Noise Reduction technology – it has to be heard to be believed. You won’t want to miss it in action.
Let’s delve deeper into Biamp’s 2022 portfolio to find out what you can expect from Tech Xpo 2022.
The Parlé ABC 2500 is an all-in-one conferencing bar featuring Biamp Audio Intelligence technology to deliver premium AV experiences in small and medium meeting rooms. Using a 27-element mic array and Biamp Beamtracking™ technology, it actively tracks and intelligently mixes conversations from around the room. It works with two smart speakers that use distortion compensation and dynamic bass enhancement technology to ensure the entire room is filled with superior speech reproduction.
The Parlé VBC 250 works in the same way except it has an additional wide angle 4K camera. Incorporating high-quality optics, it delivers crystal clear video streaming at 2160p at 30 frames per second. Additionally, it uses auto-framing technology to identify meeting participants, adjusting the focus and zoom in real-time to keep all participants in the frame.
In May 2022, Biamp announced that Tesira and Devio DSP audio models were certified for Microsoft Teams Rooms, enabling extraordinary audio experiences in small, medium and large meeting rooms. Spaces are transformed with echo cancellation, beamtracking microphones and mute sync.
The Impera product family is comprised of control pads, switching relays and touch panel controllers, enabling powerful room control across a wide range of environments. The simple push-button control pads provide user-friendly interfaces to control technology in meeting rooms and learning spaces. The touch panel controllers enable a fully customisable UI via Biamp Project Designer software.
The Apprimo range allows users to design room solutions in their own way. The touch interfaces make it flexible and simple to configure, operate and control AV equipment in complex spaces. Featuring touch panels in a range of sizes, it enables full customisation for truly optimised environments.
The Vidi 100 is a 4K conferencing camera for huddle rooms and small conference rooms. With a 120° wide field-of-view and able to be table mounted or attached to the room display, it enables everyone in the room to be seen. Equipped with a microphone array and built-in noise cancelling algorithms, everyone in the room can be heard clearly regardless of where they are positioned.
The Vidi 150 4K conferencing camera works in the same way, but it goes further – featuring an electronic and remote-controlled pan, tilt and zoom. Additionally, it includes auto framing technology to keep participants in the frame and supports wide dynamic range and low light conditions.
The Vidi 250 is a wide-angle 4K camera designed for huddle rooms or small to medium conferencing rooms. It features LED indications for camera activity, electric pan, tilt and zoom with 5x zoom, auto framing technology and a multi-microphone array.
The Modena Hub lets you stop wasting valuable time and start collaborating in any space! Ideal for BYOD and BYOM spaces, it allows participants to connect to AV equipment and USB accessories wirelessly, as well as enabling participants to wirelessly receive its AV streams during a videocall. It supports most UC software and hardware devices while enabling a user to wirelessly share content with other meeting participants.
You can expect to see all of these products live at Tech Xpo! There is nothing better than seeing technology in the flesh and getting to experience the innovation in your hands. Set over the 5th and 6th of October, resellers, integrators and end-users are all welcome to Tech Xpo and we encourage you to optimise your time out of the office by making new connections, taking a new training course and attending one of our speaker sessions.
