The 1.2 firmware updates the Yamaha RM-CR Audio Processor and RM-TT Tabletop Array Microphones and adds the new RM-W Wireless microphones to ADECIA solutions. This allows for automatic detection, integration and tuning for the room environment. Among the new features to the firmware is microphone grouping, which controls the mute behavior between separate microphones attached to the RM-CR Audio Processor. For example, in classrooms, teachers can keep their microphone live, but mute audience participation. In addition, the RM-TT Tabletop microphones can now be managed without the RM-CR; instead, organizations can access management features through a web interface, which provides direct control of microphone behavior and DSP functionality. Another new feature is the device finder tool, which allows the firmware to update any RM component in the network. Finally, the SNMP functionality is expanded to offer additional capabilities.

Within the ADECIA solution, Yamaha’ RM-CG Ceiling Microphone, RM-TT Tabletop Microphones and RM-W Wireless Microphones feature voice tracking technologies to allow conversations to be picked up and delivered clearly to the far end. Yamaha UC says the voice tracking function automatically selects the microphone closest to the person speaking for superior voice capture, and its human voice activity detection technology anticipates additional voice locations for seamless conversation pickup.

Yamaha’s ADECIA conferencing solution is a family of communication products that provide a complete and customizable audio solution for any meeting or learning space. The easy-install solution is comprised of four Yamaha products: the RM-CG Ceiling Array Microphone, RM-TT Tabletop Microphones or RM-W Wireless Microphones, RM-CR processor, Yamaha’s long-trusted PoE switches, and VXL Series line array speakers. The complete solution immediately detects all components of the system and optimizes their configuration for the room environment, accounting for the location of speakers and microphones, reverberation, and echo behavior. Setting up a room is done through the system’s configurator in four steps. With USB, Bluetooth, Dante, and analog connections, Yamaha UC says this system can fit a variety of meeting spaces.
