Stem Audio has announced the launch of its new conference room ecosystem: a tool-box of five networkable products that can be mixed and matched into any meeting room. The Stem ecosystem includes three audio devices: Table, Wall, and Ceiling, which work in tandem with Stem Audio’s Control and Hub.
Jacob Marash, CEO of Stem Audio, commented: “When we embarked on the journey to create Stem, we wanted to bring to light a revolution in the audio conferencing industry. We felt like current solutions were not complete and up to par with today’s technology standards. In order to create a complete solution, we determined it must align with these six principles: Intuitive, Controllable, Reliable, Simple, Scalable, and Flexible. The Stem ecosystem is something we believe delivers that complete solution.”
“Stem is the result of us going out into the real world and asking end-users, IT professionals, designers, consultants, and architects what their pains are,” said Jonathan Boaz, vice president of sales. “After hundreds of conversations and thousands of questions answered, Stem identified six pains common to almost every individual we met with. Everyone feels that designing rooms is still a massive challenge and installations are way too complicated.
“We also found that objectively testing audio performance after an installation is nonexistent and one-size-fits-all solutions are rarely what they claim to be. Plus, IT is in desperate need of a remote management system and a way to avoid the learning curves associated with new technology adoption. Stem’s ecosystem addresses and solves every one of these challenges.”
Stem has introduced the integration of deep learning in neural networks to improve echo-cancelling, de-reverb, and noise cancelling algorithms. Stem’s research and development team has discovered new methods for optimised microphone placement and beam design to enhance beamforming performance. Stem has also redesigned the traditional approach for measuring voice clarity, implementing a proprietary combination of multiple industry standards. True beamforming techniques for smaller apertures enable Stem to achieve full beamforming functionality, even in smaller footprint products. Stem Audio’s product design combines high quality audio pickup with immersive sound.
Stem Audio will make its first public appearance at InfoComm 2019, booth 4161, from June 12-14 2019.
