Biamp – Our BeamtrackingTM microphones make it possible

Our BeamtrackingTM microphones make it possible

Our BeamtrackingTM microphones provide awesome audio quality that transforms boring meetings into lively discussions. Biamp mics dynamically follow and intelligently mix people’s voices. This allows everyone to behave more like themselves during conference calls, meaning that they are free to stand, sit, or move around the room as needed without compromising the audio quality. Our TCM-1A microphones come with a built-in amplifier to facilitate spirited discussions with an innovative burst power mode that can handle peak signals for when things get exciting (i.e. loud).

When you can’t have a face-to-face meeting, Beamtracking microphones are the next best thing.

Biamp – It’s time to take back your meetings.

It’s time to take back your meetings.

Does the scenario below sound familiar?

It’s Wednesday morning and time for the weekly status update with your company’s largest customer. After 30 minutes of crowding around the conference phone struggling to hear and understand what’s being said —stress levels start to rise. At the one-hour mark, everyone is tired. Trying to decipher clipped speech and ignore that constant echo is exhausting.

This scenario plays out daily in the corporate workplace. Conference calls are  infamous for poor audio and lack of productivity. That’s about to change. With the right equipment in place you can meet the challenges that plague most conference calls.

Meeting these challenges requires some an understanding of audio terminology and room design. It sounds daunting, but Biamp can help. Our Beamtracking microphones are easy to install and come pre-configured, right out of the box. The result is superior audio that allows everyone on the call to be heard.

THE O2 ARENA

The O2 Arena, London

Constructed inside the former Millennium Dome, The O2 arena was purposely built to reduce echoing and nuisance ambient noise. The new public address and voice alarm system (PAVA) needed to complement and enhance that design, not put it to the test. SSE’s mission was to provide a future-proof system that would not only meet the strict PAVA system criteria, but also deliver excellent audio quality throughout the venue and allow for further expansion as needed. They chose the Bose ShowMatch line array solution.

SSE Audio Group Technical Specialist Eddie Thomas designed the system. From a central circular truss, eight Bose loudspeaker clusters were installed, each comprising eight ShowMatch cabinets, providing audio coverage across the main audience area. The system has a total of 24 RMS218 cabinets in six vertical, roof-mounted arrays powered by Bose PM8500 amplifiers. For sub-bass frequencies, the ShowMatch range utilizes the Bose RMS218 subwoofer.

Of course, the system was designed to work for myriad applications. As with most modern venues, The O2 is customizable; the seating arrangement throughout the arena can be modified as needed. And the ground surface is continually changing as well. It’s an ice rink one day, a basketball court the next, then an exhibition hall, conference space, or concert arena. An additional four Bose ShowMatch production delay clusters were added to provide coverage for upper-level seating, with each cluster comprising eight ShowMatch cabinets.

To ensure guests enjoyed a seamless experience during the upgrade, SSE approached the PAVA project in phases: audio network and amplification first in August 2017, with the central cluster completed later that year. SSE added delay loudspeakers in March 2018 with the sub-bass upgrade completed in May 2018. The VIP areas will be the next phase of the project, followed by the concourse areas in 2019. They expect to have Bose speakers installed throughout The O2 by 2020.

“We have worked closely with SSE Audio since the venue opened and their knowledge of the system and the venue’s operational requirements are crucial to us as a business. We were convinced by SSE Audio that the Bose product would provide us with not only meeting the venue’s statutory requirement for a PAVA system but also deliver an improved sound performance. On hearing the system for the first time we have been incredibly impressed … very pleased with our decision to go with Bose.” -Lee Lacey, The O2 Facility Director
