Biamp On Pace to Activate Over 3 Billion Wireless Microphones in 2019 via Crowd Mics

Biamp’s Crowd Mics audience engagement solution transforms every smartphone and tablet into a personal microphone and interactive response system, creating an extraordinary experience for event attendees and moderators alike. At Stand 3-B120 at ISE 2019, Biamp will demonstrate how Crowd Mics puts the power of a personal, wireless microphone into audience members’ hands, eliminating the need to hand microphones around the room and creating a truly dynamic interactive presentation or event.

Designed for presentations, lectures, panel discussions, and other presenter/audience events, Crowd Mics is hosted on a small hardware appliance — the ATOM — that supports up to 1,000 event participants. The ATOM connects directly to the room’s audio system via USB or balanced audio outputs, includes the option to present video via HDMI, and provides moderators full access to the event’s participation log, including questions asked and poll results. 

Audience members connect to the ATOM using a free iOS or Android app installed on their phone or tablet. The app lets event participants use their smartphones as a personal wireless microphone and give access to standard audience engagement tools like polls and messaging. The separate Crowd Mics moderator application allows a presenter or moderator to select who will speak next, create and publish polls, and select audience text comments to be pushed to the room’s AV presentation system.

The original Crowd Mics application was purchased by Biamp in 2018 from Crowd Mics founder Tim Holladay in Biamp’s first acquisition under resident and CEO Rashid Skaf. Mr. Holladay is joining Biamp at ISE as a special guest and will promote the launch of the product in the Biamp booth.

Biamp’s offerings for larger spaces combine flexible network architecture, simplified installation features and a unique, integrated audio and video platform to create an unbeatable toolset for designers and installers alike. Like other Biamp devices, Crowd Mics can be easily managed through Biamp’s SageVue 2.0 browser-based monitoring and management platform. 

Biamp Crowd Mics will be available Q2 of 2019 and all the specs are here.
