Here we provide indications of third-party USB devices that are known to have been tested by Biamp’s community to be compatible with the wireless videoconferencing feature of Modena Hub.
Please note that Biamp is not always made aware of changes made by third parties to the hardware or firmware of the devices referenced, and therefore Biamp cannot guarantee compatibility with any of the products listed on this page. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connecting a Single USB Device
Modena Hub is equipped with one USB 2.0/3.0 port. A single USB device can be connected directly to the USB port of Modena Hub, this is typically the case of a Devio unit, or an all-in-one camera that also handles audio in and out.
Any USB 2.0/3.0 device peripheral compatible with USB driver 1.0 and directly plugged into the USB port, is theoretically compatible with Modena “Wireless USB” feature. However, Biamp cannot guarantee a full or even limited compatibility with all the several devices available on the market.
Connecting Multiple USB Devices
Multiple separated audio and video sources (e.g. a webcam and a speakerphone) can be connected to Modena Hub with the help of an external USB hub. Due to a large number of possible combinations, these must be tested on a case by case basis. It is recommended to use a powered USB hub to avoid possible power loss on the connected devices.
Modena does not provide embedded Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) capabilities.
To avoid unwanted echoes at the far end, Modena is required to work in combination with AEC-enabled hardware. This can be either a DSP (Biamp Devio, Biamp Tesira), a speakerphone, or an all-in-one camera.
In some cases, also a software echo cancellation can be obtained with the use of videoconference clients (Zoom, Microsoft Teams). When used in combination with Modena, the effectiveness of this solution varies greatly depending on several factors that can also change over time, and cannot be guaranteed in any way.
