Yamaha Unified Communications will showcase its range of audio solutions for UCC at InfoComm 2022. In booth W1151, the company will demonstrate its latest innovation, the VSP-2 Speech Privacy System, along with its comprehensive ACEDIA conferencing system, RM Series microphones, and YVC Series conference phones.
Yamaha’s VSP-2 Speech Privacy System prevents information leakage without emitting any distracting sound-masking audio, creating an environment that makes it easy to converse in almost any office meeting space. Designed for quick retrofit, the unique system layers in three key features for optimal speech privacy: high-performance Info-Masking Technology, which is developed to mask the human voice in unwanted areas with a sound level that is 8 dB lower than conventional systems; environmental audio with four audio options that is mixed to the speech sound masker; as well as four types of sound effects that are added to unobtrusively distract others from hearing private conversations. The control unit allows users to power the system on and off, select their preferred sound effect (guitar, piano, music box, or digital device) and environmental sound (forest, brook, urban clatter, or air conditioner), and set the performance and volume level for a personalized room environment.To install, either two, four, or eight VSP-2 micro speakers are simply mounted to the ceiling or wall with the included hardware and speaker cable (non-plenum rated).
Yamaha’s ADECIA conferencing solution is an innovative family of communication products that provides a complete and customizable audio solution, delivering the most comfortable and effortless remote conferencing experience for any meeting or learning space. The easy-install solution is comprised of four Yamaha products: a choice of microphones — RM-CG ceiling array, RM-TT tabletop, or RM-W wireless — in addition to the 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 effortless steps. With USB, Bluetooth®, Dante, and analog connections, this flexible system can fit a variety of meeting spaces.
The RM Series microphones within the ADECIA solution are also available as standalone options. Designed around the Dante platform, these microphones pack all of Yamaha’s powerful sound technologies, including automatic voice tracking, auto gain control, adaptive echo cancellation, noise reduction, and reverberation suppression for optimal collaboration experiences – while seamlessly integrating with the room’s existing conferencing equipment or a variety of third-party components.
The YVC series offers scalable device configurations to suit the room size, group size, and collaboration needs. The YVC-200 USB & Bluetooth Speakerphone is perfect for small meeting rooms with up to four people. Meeting rooms with four to 10 people will benefit from the YVC-330 USB & Bluetooth Speakerphone, which features Yamaha’s innovative SoundCap technology to eliminate background noise. In addition, two YVC-330s can be daisy-chained to cover up to 16 participants. Large meeting spaces, where up to 40 people can gather, will require the YVC-1000’s separate microphone and speaker system. Each model features the company’s innovative sound technologies, including Human Voice Activity Detection, speaker tracking, and dynamic acoustic echo cancellation that make conversation stress-free and intuitive. They are software-agnostic and fully compatible with commonly used OSs and remote conferencing services, such as Microsoft® Teams, Google Meet, Cisco Webex®, Zoom, and more.
Yamaha’s Holger Stoltze will also present two sessions at InfoComm: “Room Impact on Selecting the Right Microphone Technology” on Wednesday, June 8, room W311-W313; and “The New Demands of Hybrid Education on Classroom Audio” on Thursday, June 9, room W322-W324. In the Wednesday session, Stoltze will address several of the common problems and discuss why specific microphone technology might or might not be a good solution. In the Thursday session, he will share the solutions for guaranteeing great audio in hybrid learning environments.
