ClearOne Introduces BMA 360 Audio Coverage Plugin for Autodesk Revit BIM

clearone bma 360 BIM plugin 1ClearOne introduced its new BMA 360 Audio Coverage Plugin for Autodesk Revit Building Information Modeling software (BIM). This allows designers and integrators to determine where a microphone array should be placed for optimal room coverage. ClearOne says the plugin is designed to help maximize the effectiveness of the company’s Beamforming Microphone Array solutions.

The BMA 360 Audio Coverage plugin provides dynamic support for most BMA 360 beam configuration options available within ClearOne’s CONSOLE AI software. This includes coverage pattern selection, coverage size, height above the floor, rotation and enabling or disabling beams. The plugin is compatible with Revit 2019 through Revit 2022, available for download here.

ClearOne’s patented BMA 360 is a beamforming mic array ceiling tile including Voice Lift, FiBeam and DsBeam. The BMA 360 provides 360-degree coverage with up to two beams at once and provides up to a 20dB boost in voice lift gain before feedback compared to an omni mic.
