Las Vegas, NV (June 6, 2018)—With a one-two punch of news, Yamaha announced just before InfoComm that subsidiary RevoLabs, which it purchased in 2014, has been renamed as Yamaha Unified Communications. Then, to follow up, Yamaha UC announced the debut of a professional audio conferencing solution: the Yamaha YAI-1 Conference Ensemble.
A preconfigured USB audio system that works with an organization's chosen UC platform, the ready-to-install professional audio system comprises an eight-channel Executive Elite wireless microphone package, two VXL 1-16 PoE speaker arrays, a preconfigured digital signal processor, a five-port PoE switch, Dante AVIO USB adapter, and cabling.
The bundle includes two 16-element PoE powered line array speakers, and is available in two microphone options: an eight-gooseneck microphone package for boardrooms, or seven table-top microphones and one wearable microphone for presentation flexibility in conference rooms.
The system features adaptive AEC algorithms and dynamic microphone mixing technology, aiming to provide a quality audio experience.
"All organizations are moving toward UC applications — even in larger conferencing spaces. While these solutions provide a great way to communicate, they don't include the equipment or USB audio inputs and outputs necessary to maintain consistent, professional-grade communication throughout a meeting," said Phil Marechal, VP of business development and product management, Yamaha Unified Communications.
"The Yamaha YAI-1 Conference Ensemble meets the toughest audio expectations within these rooms, with all the required components to achieve best audio capture and best audio output while maximizing installation and configuration efficiencies."
