Q: Why is the Biamp + AVer partnership important?

clipboard_e0e0de7b13f53869ffc338e89f589f48b.pngA: Unlike typical conferencing microphones, the Biamp Parlé Beamtracking constantly seeks out active speakers. This, paired with features like Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Noise Reduction provided by Biamp Tesira software within the Biamp DSP, ensures a seamless experience. Imagine the dynamic output from a Biamp DSP resembling the ever-changing scenes in a movie like The Matrix.

In the realm of Camera Tracking, the ability to translate this continuous stream of data into camera actions was pivotal. Through our successful integration with AVer, our Parlé microphones—tuned to track signals within the frequency range of human speech—now work seamlessly with a reliable Auto-Camera Tracking solution. This collaboration brings remote participants even closer to the conversation, enhancing their sense of engagement over video calls, and will be available worldwide.

 

 

Q: How does the integration work?

A: The integration is using PTZ Link software running on a computer or the AVer MT300N box. PTZ Link or the MT300N makes a connection to Tesira to read the beam positions and intensities, then recall an associated camera preset and human tracking mode. AVer will use the beam position, intensity, and

activity duration to position the camera. The user can configure the intensity threshold, time to recall a preset, and what position to use when multiple zones are active, allowing the integrator to tailor the experience for the room and desired camera tracking behavior. AVer PTZ Link or the MT300N was also customized for Tesira to for 3rd party microphone support.

AVer also allows you to select 3 different camera modes, Presenter, Zone or Hybrid, where AI/Presenter tracking can automatically track the presenter, certain pre-configured zones or a mix of both, based on the humanoid-shaped AI analysis technology.

*Note – Due to variations in conference room size, shape, orientation, and setup, adjustments within PTZ Link are recommended. For assistance with these settings, please contact your local Biamp and AVer rep
