Yamaha Unified Communications has added the RM-TT wired tabletop array microphone as a new option to its ADECIA family of products designed to work together to provide customizable communications systems for meetings and learning spaces.
“With the hybrid style of working and learning now becoming commonplace, high-quality conferencing systems are more vital than ever to ensure a seamless and engaging communication experience,” says Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha UC. “With the additional option of Yamaha’s RM-TT tabletop microphone, users have more flexibility to customize ADECIA to their use case.”
The new RM-TT is designed with the same setup and auto configuration characteristics found in the ADECIA RM-CR audio processor. Installation of the wired tabletop microphones is done through a LAN cable to the PoE switch. Up to eight microphone pods (four microphones per pod) can be added for scalability.
It also offers the company’s proprietary technologies that include 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 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 the help ensure that their voice will be captured and delivered to the far end in clear quality. In a classroom, the microphones can be set up around the room to capture every student 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 customized room capture. Available mic options include unidirectional, supercardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional, and toroidal.
Setting up a room is done through the system’s configurator in four steps. With USB, Bluetooth®, Dante, and analog connections, it can fit a variety of enterprise and meeting spaces as well as classrooms.
The new RM-TT will be available in summer 2021.
