Biamp Systems has announced the addition of the new TEC-1 Remote Ethernet device, which are the remote controls for the Tesira system.
The new control device, available in two configurations – TEC-1i and the TEC-1s – offers a simple, intuitive interface for end users and can be installed and configured to fit the unique needs of a particular application.
Leveraging standard CAT5/6/7 cabling, the TEC-1 devices are powered over Ethernet, eliminating the need for custom cabling and local power sources.
“The TEC-1 device provide end users with control of system settings quickly and easily through an intuitive and attractive wall panel,” says Graeme Harrison, executive vice president of Biamp Systems. “Installations can be designed with multiple control panels in a room, or to control many rooms from one panel if this is desired. This gives an unmatched level of flexibility in design and use.”
In addition to the new control device, new Tesira v1.1 software will also be available. This new software supports the TEC-1 design and configuration capabilities.
Some of the features of the new device:
—Select and adjust up to 32 controls per device
—Control and/or select sources, volumes, presents and mutes
—Capacitive touch technology eliminates protruding and moving parts and increases reliability
—End user control and/or access to a single room or several rooms included in the entire system design
Multiple TEC-1 control devices can be connected over large distances using standard network technology, making them a good fit for both simple and complex installations such as restaurants, AV conferencing and room combining.
