Biamp Extends the Reach of Crowd Mics to Remote Audiences
AMSTERDAM — Biamp (Booth 3-B90) continues to create extraordinary collaboration experiences between presenters and audience members with the launch of Crowd Mics™ Online at ISE 2020. Crowd Mics transforms every smartphone into a personal microphone and interactive response system via a free iOS or Android app. Now, Biamp is extending the use of Crowd Mics to remote locations. With Crowd Mics Online, geographically diverse audience members can use their smartphones to connect with the event presenter as if they were in the same room.
Demonstrating Biamp’s commitment to global audiences and customers, both the attendee app and moderator interface will be translated into 20 languages to make Crowd Mics more accessible to international users.
“Clear communication and engaged audiences are critical to successful events, but until now there hasn’t been an effective and meaningful way for remote attendees to participate,” said Joe Andrulis, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Biamp. “Crowd Mics Online draws remote attendees more deeply into the event by allowing them to participate as fully and as easily as the attendees in the room.”
Crowd Mics is the premier audience engagement solution for presentations, lectures, panel discussions, and other live events, allowing presenters and attendees to connect on a personal level. Moderators always maintain full control over the conversation via the moderator interface. Crowd Mics Online enables full bi-directional functionality between remote participants and the Crowd Mic’s host device, the ATOM, so attendees anywhere can ask questions by voice or text and participate in real-time polls via their smartphones.
Crowd Mics Online complements event broadcast systems by adding remote messaging capabilities and interactive polling. As a result, new paths to engagement are created and the remote event is transformed into an enriching, productive experience. Crowd Mics Online is supported by flexible licensing options for individual events, as well as monthly and annual license subscriptions, and will be available in Q2 2020.
