Biamp Opens New Boston Office and Demo Space
Earlier this month the Biamp team converged on its new office space in the Boston metro area along with customers and partners to host an official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony at 800 District Ave., Suite 310, Burlington, Mass.

The Boston area remains an important part of the Biamp footprint, where much of its sound masking product development originated. The new office space also reinforces Biamp’s commitment to providing a regional showplace and demo area for its Northeast U.S.-based employees, partners, and customers.

Afterward, attendees had the opportunity to tour the new demo spaces, which provide more complete and engaging environments to test out a host of Biamp products. Biamp CEO and Co-Chairman Rashid Skaf noted that the new space provides a compelling showcase to help partners and customers in the region gain a better understanding of the options and capabilities Biamp offers.

Three Things You Can Do by Adding the Impera Connect-X MP6 to Your AV Control Environment
The Connect-X MP6 bridges the local area network and conventional AV ports, letting installers use the convenience of Ethernet cabling to bring AV ports directly to devices. Instead of running wires up and down walls and through ceilings, the Connect-X easily connects right where the device to be controlled lives. Chances are, particularly in existing spaces, there’s a convenient ethernet drop somewhere close by. This ability to connect where the device is located makes adding the Connect-X MP6 a good option regardless of the chosen controller, especially when equipment may be distributed throughout a large room.

Weighing less than one-quarter pound (110g), the Connect-X MP6 is easily mounted using screws, double sided tape, or zip ties, which makes positioning or fastening it to the device being controlled also simple. The Connect-X MP6 is the perfect control peripheral for integrators and installers that want to get in, get the job done, and move onto the next project. The form factor, features and ease of deployment make the Connect-X MP6 a game changer in the Biamp room control family.
