Biamp Systems Expands TesiraFORTÉ Platform with Shure Partnership

Biamp Systems today announced the TesiraFORTÉ DAN range of audio processors. This is a collaboration between Biamp and Shure where the new DAN line of audio processors directly interface with the Shure MXA beamforming line of microphones. The TesiraFORTÉ DAN will be displayed at the Biamp booth (3-A75) at ISE 2017, Feb. 7-10 at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre in Amsterdam.

The TesiraFORTÉ DAN will be offered in four fixed I/O models — the same models as the original TesiraFORTÉ family (AI, CI, TI and VI) — with the addition of 32×32 channels of audio via the Dante Brooklyn II module. All models of TesiraFORTÉ DAN are standard with 12 mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, Ethernet control, RS232, USB audio with up to eight channels of configurable audio, four general purpose I/Os and an OLED display.

The TesiraFORTÉ DAN VI, TI and CI models feature Biamp’s AEC technology to eliminate acoustic echoes and feedback. Users can centrally or remotely control the devices with Tesira’s software program. The system allows direct native connectivity to devices such as the Shure MXA910 ceiling microphone, enabling integrators to better design, install and commission conferencing systems for their customers.

The TesiraFORTÉ DAN processor can be networked with other TesiraFORTÉ DAN units, or with a Tesira SERVER IO containing a DAN-1 card. With this setup, the servers can pass audio throughout the ecosystem, which is configured through the Dante Controller.
