Biamp’s full line of Parlé all-in-one video and audio conferencing bars are now certified for use in Microsoft Teams Rooms. The Teams Room certification ensures that the Parlé conferencing bars perform within the rigorous standards of the Microsoft Teams unified communication (UC) platform.

Biamp says the Parlé family of conferencing bars includes the Parlé VBC 2500 video conferencing bar and the Parlé ABC 2500 audio conferencing bar, as well as the Parlé VBC 2500a and Parlé ABC 2500a conferencing bars that include a discrete output for Assistive Listening Systems. Biamp says the Parlé family of conferencing bars includes built-in Beamtracking microphones to track and intelligently mix conversations from around the room actively, smart loudspeakers for speech reproduction and signal processing with integrated echo cancellation and AI noise reduction—all within one plug-and-play package. The Parlé VBC 2500 and VBC 2500a also include a 4K camera with auto-framing to identify meeting participants and keep them in focus. For easy startup across all four models, the Biamp Launch feature automatically deploys tuning software that analyzes and optimizes the acoustic performance of any room at the touch of button, “delivering both a premium conferencing experience to users while offering significant time savings for installers and information technology professionals.”
