Biamp Announces New I/O Cards as well as Software and Firmware Updates are Now Available

Ensuring that customers are fully supported when installing its latest innovative audio solutions, Biamp today announced that its newest I/O cards as well as new software and firmware upgrades are available for the Audia® platform and family of Nexia® processors. These cards and upgrades allow integrators to unlock the full potential of Biamp's new PA-2 Dual-Channel Power Amplifier Card for direct power amplification via AudiaFLEX, and TrueSound™ AEC algorithm for true to life audio in any conferencing application.

I/O Cards
Available immediately, the PA-2 Dual-Channel Power Amplifier Cards and AEC-2HD two-channel acoustic echo canceling cards join Biamp's comprehensive family of I/O cards including the IP-2 two-channel mic/line input card, TI-2 two-channel telephone interface card and OP-2e two-channel mic/line output card. The PA-2 Dual-Channel Power Amplifier Card is ideal for small to medium size venues such as courtrooms or boardrooms, and enable any AudiaFLEX to directly power 4, 6 or 8 ohm speakers, eliminating the need for extra, separate amplifiers. AEC-2HD cards are designed specifically for the AudiaFLEX chassis and carry Biamp's proprietary TrueSound algorithm: the only algorithm that provides true wideband, 20 Hz to 20 kHz acoustic echo cancellation, delivering sound that is true to life.

To support the PA-2 Dual-Channel Power Amplifier Card, Biamp is also now shipping a new AudiaFLEX chassis with enhanced power supply. These chassis are identified by serial numbers that end with the letter "P".

Software/Firmware
Now standard in all Audia and Nexia components, as well as daVinci software, the new software and firmware upgrades are listed as follows: Audia software 4.2, AudiaFLEX firmware 4.4 and AudiaSOLO firmware 3.4; Nexia software 2.1 and Nexia firmware 1.4; and daVinci 1.5.

In addition to supporting the PA-2 and AEC-2HD cards, both introduced earlier this year, the upgrades will provide the following added functionality: the TrueSound AEC algorithm will now execute a reset of values if it locks up; RCB messaging errors have been corrected; the TI telephone interface has been updated; software additions that account for 24 channel AEC blocks; and new meters that make system setup and troubleshooting even easier.
