Biamp Announces Tesira 2.0 with EX-AEC expander and EEC-4 Modular Card

Updated AVB-friendly DSP-based media systems Tesira network provides a simpler and more efficient means of expanding and adding AEC.

During InfoComm 2014, Biamp is unveiling Tesira 2.0, the latest version of its Audio Video Bridging (AVB) friendly Tesira family of digital signal processor-based media systems, boasting its new EX-AEC expander and EEC-4 Modular Card.

The big benefit for integrators and customers, says audio product manager Justin O’Connor, the introduction of an EX-AEC expander and EEC-4 Modular Card. Since AEC cards were previously added only to the server, this upgrade makes it easier to expand and add AEC.

The EX-AEC Expander and the EEC-4 Modular Card will ship in late June.

From Biamp’s press release on Tesira 2.0:

Biamp Systems Tesira® 2.1
As the latest version of Biamp Systems’ industry-leading Tesira® family of digital signal processor (DSP)-based media systems, Tesira 2.1 introduces the new EX-AEC expander and EEC-4 Modular Card. These new devices bring Biamp’s patented SonaTM AEC technology directly to the endpoints of a Tesira networked audio system, ensuring there is a Biamp® solution for every project and Biamp quality for every budget. Previously, AEC cards were added only to a SERVER or SERVER I/O, but now the AEC technology is embedded within the new EX-AEC hardware endpoint. If the SERVER or SERVER I/O expansion slots are full, the addition of an endpoint with AEC provides a simpler and more efficient means of expanding and adding AEC.

The Tesira platform leverages audio video bridging (AVB) to provide a cohesive, networked media system that integrates diverse products for multiple applications. With Tesira 2.1, enterprises can take audio processing from large to super-scaled and provide functionality such as AVB, CobraNet®, and Dante™ within a single Tesira chassis.

Also in Tesira 2.1, Biamp has added multi-channel compression abilities to its comp/limiter processing and the option to use compressors in either advanced or simplified mode at system setup. A new independent limiter block provides more precise decision-making when choosing blocks needed for the installation.

Biamp’s Tesira 2.0 features the new EX-AEC expander and EEC-4 Modular Card.
