BEAVERTON, Oregon — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced it has begun shipping Tesira. Ideal for systems that require a higher level of scalability, Tesira is Biamp's first digital signal processor (DSP)-based networked media system to use AVB as the primary digital media transport. AVB is the new IEEE open standard that allows media streams to be carried over Ethernet networks, using existing cable infrastructure, alongside traditional data. Tesira also improves programming efficiency by allowing for system configuration in a partitioned approach, making it possible to design, configure, update and maintain distinct portions of a system without affecting those that are currently in use, and without having to reconfigure the entire system.
"Feedback from the marketplace has been extremely positive. There's a lot of excitement and there are several projects where Tesira's innovation provides the perfect solution," said Graeme Harrison, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Biamp Systems. "Tesira is made up of intelligent network devices that both share and boost system performance, and we're excited to get it in the hands of our integrators."
In conjunction with the shipping of Tesira, Biamp is also introducing its Tesira Soundscapes Sweepstakes. The Soundscapes Sweepstakes is an interactive experience that invites people to learn more about the benefits of Tesira and AVB in a fun and engaging virtual city. Upon entering this virtual city, users access six rooms or "doorways," each leading to a specific feature or benefit of Tesira: scalability, powerful, modular, AVB, software, and future-proof.
Links to product material, whitepaper, webinar, product catalog, and the AVnu Alliance site are provided within the interactive experience. The first 100 people who visit all six rooms will automatically receive a free t-shirt and all visitors to the interactive experience are entered for a chance to win a grand prize or one of 10 secondary prizes.
