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.
