Biamp Systems Expands Devio™ Collaboration Tool with New Microphone Option

LAS VEGAS — Today at InfoComm 2016, Biamp Systems introduced the Devio™ DCM-1 ceiling microphone, the latest addition to the Devio collaboration portfolio. Created specifically for huddle rooms and small gathering spaces, Devio enables fast, simple, and intuitive collaboration. With Devio's easy-to-connect device (Devio CR-1) and advanced beamforming microphones, meetings are equipped with high-quality, laptop-based audio and video conferencing for enhanced user engagement and productivity.

“Devio is a collaboration tool for modern workplaces that are constantly on the move,” said Rob Houston, product manager, unified communications (UC) products, at Biamp. “With that in mind, we expanded our microphone options to make the Devio solution even more flexible and versatile. The new Devio ceiling microphone provides the same clear intelligibility and superb audio quality as the Devio DTM-1 tabletop model, but in a new form factor that preserves space on the work surface or fits in rooms with no table. This gives integrators more options when creating huddle room designs for their customers.”

The Devio CR-1 base unit is bundled with either the DCM-1 ceiling microphone or the DTM-1 tabletop microphone. Both models feature eight element beamforming microphone arrays that track voices within and mix audio across three 120-degree zones. The result is full 360-degree coverage, providing remote conference participants with a natural representation of the conversation as it occurs. Audio quality is further enhanced with integrated acoustic echo cancellation and noise reduction, and installation is simplified with Auto Setup. The DCM-1 is designed for easy installation in rooms with or without drop ceilings, and keeps the table clear for laptops or other meeting materials.

With the CR-1 base unit, Devio can pass video from the connected laptop to one monitor via a simple HDMI connection, or to two monitors via the included USB 3.0 cable using DisplayLink USB graphics technology. Devio also offers connectivity to a variety of other in-room devices, including USB web cameras, speakers, and more. Once connected to the CR-1, end users can share content locally and initiate their preferred soft codec from their computers — without additional software application or device training. For system administrators, multiple CR-1 units can be managed centrally using the Devio software administration utility (SAU) or via SNMP, and firmware and configurations can be mass deployed.

On display at InfoComm 2016 in Biamp’s booth (C9525), the Devio DCM-1 ceiling microphone and updated firmware will be available in July. More information on Biamp’s full line of products is available at
