Vaddio Combines Echo Cancellation and Automatic Mixing Into TRIO Microphones with SmartMIC Technology

Vaddio TRIO MicrophonesVaddio’s new TRIO audio line includes what it’s calling SmartMIC technology — a microphone system integrated with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and echo cancelation directly into the microphone itself — what appears to be an industry first. The internal DSP features microphone gating, equalization, AGC and noise cancelation.

Each TRIO SmartMIC is equipped with three electric condenser microphones positioned to form a 360-degree pickup pattern. This technology is based on the microphone’s ability to actively manage the room’s live audio for gain, gating and echo cancelation. Once detected, the microphone will adjust and mix down to a single output.

The TRIO MIC I/O interface device allows the connection of up to four SmartMICs and because each input is running three microphones on three different channels, users can technically run 12 microphones all with independent echo cancelation and internalDSP. For installations requiring more than 12 SmartMICs, just add an additional TRIO MIC I/O for 12 more channels.
