Yamaha UC has announced that its ADECIA Tabletop family of products has now been certified for Microsoft Teams meetings.
“The future of education and business communications demands conferencing solutions that are easy to install and deliver pristine audio quality,” says Michelle Baeza, director of strategic partnerships at Yamaha Unified Communications. “The RM-TT microphone of ADECIA Tabletop Solution meets all of those standards. As a device that is certified for Microsoft Teams, organizations can confidently select it as a part of the Microsoft Teams experience.”
The Yamaha RM-TT wired tabletop array microphone is one of the several stand-alone mic options available in ADECIA, a family of products designed to work together to provide customizable communications for meetings or learning spaces. ADECIA Tabletop, like the ADECIA Ceiling System, integrates the RM-CR remote conference processor, VXL1-16P Dante/PoE-compatible loudspeaker and the SWR2311P-10G PoE network switch.
The RM-TT includes Yamaha’s automatic voice tracking, auto gain control, adaptive echo cancellation, noise reduction, and reverberation suppression. When the RM-CR processor and RM-TT tabletop microphones are combined, the voice tracking function automatically selects the microphone closest to the person speaking for more optimal voice capture.
For example, a meeting participant who is moving from the conference table to a white board or interactive display in the room can ensure that their voice will be captured and delivered clearly to the far end in crisp. In a classroom, the microphones can be set up around the room to capture students as well as the teacher who may be presenting lessons from different areas or checking on individual progress or questions. The technology also allows installers to dictate each microphone pod’s directional mode for more customized room capture. Available mic options include unidirectional, supercardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional, and toroidal.
The ADECIA platform is designed to automatically detect all components of the system and configure them to be optimized for the room environment, accounting for the location of loudspeakers and microphones, reverberation, and echo behavior. Setting up a room is done through the system’s configurator in four steps. USB, Bluetooth, Dante, and analog connections are provided.
“In a world of hybrid meetings, a room’s audio quality is key to creating equity between people inside the meeting room and remotely,” says Albert Kooiman, senior director, Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft Corp. “Yamaha has a long tradition of delivering audio excellence, and with achieving certification for Microsoft Teams, the RM-TT brings quality in-room and remote audio to the Teams experience.”
