Biamp Adds AVB USB Expander With Bluetooth Wireless Technology to Tesira Platform

Biamp today announced its new AVB USB audio expander, the Tesira EX-UBT. Designed for use in Tesira systems, the new expander provides a digital audio interface via USB. Designed for installations requiring USB connections not located in a rack or near other equipment, the Tesira EX-UBT is not limited by the specification-defined maximum USB connection length of 15 feet; the new Tesira EX-UBT is also can transport USB digital audio reliably throughout a customer’s network. It is also ideal for installations requiring multiple USB audio inputs or in projects using Tesira SERVER or SERVER-IO as the DSP adding an on-board USB connection.

The Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Tesira EX-UBT expander supports up to eight channels of configurable USB audio as well as Bluetooth wireless technology, which is enabled and configured through the Tesira software. Using Bluetooth, the EX-UBT provides integrators with a cable-free solution for teleconferencing using soft codecs, continuing a mobile phone call into a meeting room, or supplying background music such as in a hospitality setting. The EX-UBT is the perfect solution for a variety of room types and sizes that require USB audio delivered in a small form factor.

The Tesira EX-UBT expander will be available in Q3 of 2018 and can be found here.
