The new TAIDEN wireless discussion system is small – smaller than an average smartphone, according to parent company Media Vision. But it’s expected to make a big impact when it’s introduced at ISE 2018. TAIDEN expects the HCS-5335 series to make infrared audio solutions more accessible for mid-sized meeting rooms.
The HCS-5335 product series, with gooseneck or boundary microphone options, is ultra portable and includes no equipment rack pieces, according to a press release by the audio and conferencing company.
From the press release:
The infrared transmitter and central processor are combined in one small tabletop unit that can be placed at the center of the table with a wide coverage radius of 8 meters (26 ft.). A PoE Dante-enabled solution ensures simple, scalable installations with simplified wiring.
Key conference management capabilities – audio settings adjustments, battery charge monitoring, microphone activation, and camera tracking – can be achieved through web control, from any browser-enabled device.
“With their unobtrusive new design, these infrared Wireless Discussion Microphones are opening doors for TAIDEN solutions in small to mid-sized meeting rooms, or even in huddle rooms,” says Jack De Keyser, Media Vision’s VP of Sales for Europe.
“Dedicated tabletop microphones ensure a far superior audio capture compared with ceiling mics or speakerphones; if they are easy to install without need for frequency planning, they will become a solution of choice for clear voice transmission even in smaller spaces.”
More from Media Vision’s press release:
As for all TAIDEN wireless solutions, the HCS-5335 series is using the company’s proprietary digital infrared audio processing and transmitting technology with a wide frequency response of 20Hz to 20 kHz. They deliver high fidelity audio while avoiding the pitfalls of RF technology with no need for frequency management, no pairing, no eavesdropping, no crosstalk, and the ability to install multiple systems in adjacent rooms.
“In the past 10 years, infrared audio systems have evolved from marginal use, supported by a few curious minds, to being appreciated by a large number of professionals,” says Wesley Sutliff, director of product management for Media Vision.
“What I see in the new Wireless Discussion Microphones by TAIDEN is a solution that is more accessible, both from cost and aesthetic viewpoints, and that will help infrared go mainstream”
Media Vision adds that previous models for TAIDEN Digital Infrared Wireless Conference System — the company’s best-selling microphone solution for the past 8 years — remain in production, meeting the need for larger multipurpose spaces, particularly with room combining.
