Challenging acoustic environments make effective sound reinforcement even more crucial.
Many historic venues, retrofitted structures, houses of worship, and other longstanding buildings were not designed with amplified audio in mind. These facilities often have reflective surfaces or constraints on microphone and loudspeaker placement due to architectural or aesthetic reasons, which can make it difficult for guests, students, or parishioners to hear the intended message from certain areas of the room.
Biamp's value proposition for sound reinforcement
Networked Media Systems featuring Biamp's Tesira platform are an excellent choice for sound reinforcement applications for several reasons. Because Networked Media Systems are Ethernet-based, only one cable is required for media network connectivity, minimizing the number of cables needed. This is particularly useful for retrofits and historic venues, where storage space is limited and retaining the facility's aesthetic qualities is imperative.
Sound reinforcement should also be considered for training rooms, lecture halls, hospitality venues, newly-built houses of worship, and performing arts venues. Regardless of the venue type, advanced software capabilities like dynamic processing and auto mixers function like an autopilot for your audio system, eliminating the need to manually adjust room levels.
Biamp's Tesira family can provide sound reinforcement and DSP for venues of all sizes and functions.
With sound reinforcement, there remains a great deal of art mixed with science in implementing robust audio solutions. In many cases, the space can be acoustically challenging, with multiple reflective surfaces or constraints on microphone and speaker placement for architectural reasons.
Biamp's Value Proposition for Sound Reinforcement
Networked Media Systems like our Tesira product family are well-suited for sound reinforcement applications for a number of reasons. Advanced software capabilities, like dynamic processing and auto mixers, function like an autopilot for your audio system, eliminating the need for manual adjustment of room levels. TesiraFORTÉ devices support up to 12 inputs and 8 outputs with a host of DSP power. Need even more DSP horsepower? Tesira SERVER or Tesira SERVER-IO devices can be customized to fit any type of installation.
Choosing the right amplifier is key to proper sound reinforcement. Tesira amplifiers allow you to obtain a more complete solution from a single manufacturer. Tesira amplifiers are AVB/TSN enabled, digital networked endpoints. They function as an integrated part of a Tesira audio system that is configured through Tesira software. A family of four different Tesira amplifier models are available, allowing you to choose the best models for a particular venue's requirements. Tesira amplifiers can be managed using the Tesira software, which saves commissioning time, and can be housed in a rack in the venue's server room.
• Audio and video routing across the entire network
