Biamp Systems Makes AVB Connectivity Smarter and Available to Applications of All Sizes

Tesira(R) 2.0 Delivers Preconfigured Products for Greater Simplicity and Increased Flexibility for Everyday and Enterprise-Level Audio

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- ISE 2014 -- Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced the launch of Tesira® 2.0, the latest version of the company's flagship family of digital signal processor (DSP)-based media systems. The centerpiece of Tesira 2.0 is TesiraFORTÉ, an all-new series of audio processors that extend Audio Video Bridging (AVB) to application-specific settings. TesiraFORTÉ consists of eight preconfigured models (four AVB models and four non-AVB models) designed to bring greater simplicity and more options to today's conferencing, telephony, and VoIP environments.

Also shipping with Tesira 2.0 is Biamp's new Dante™-enabled DAN-1 digital server networking card, which, like its current CobraNet® card, functions as a gateway interface to support 64x64 channels of Dante networked audio. The DAN-1 card provides system integrators with a Dante digital transport within Tesira media systems. While the Tesira platform operates over AVB, with the addition of the DAN-1 card, customers will have the flexibility of integrating with different system types. The DAN-1 can also be used alongside AVB and/or CobraNet in the same Tesira SERVER or SERVER-IO.

In addition, Tesira 2.0 includes new firmware and software that enable two Tesira SERVERs to act as a redundant pair -- with the secondary Tesira SERVER providing a mirrored backup to prevent any interruption in service in case of failure in the primary SERVER.

"As an enterprise-level platform, our Tesira family has been widely applauded since its initial release," said Justin O'Connor, Audio Product Manager, Biamp Systems. "And now, with TesiraFORTÉ, we're extending that sophisticated technology to application-specific and value-conscious designs -- bringing exceptional AVB audio solutions to everyday applications. And the new DAN-1 server card is the latest in our series of interfaces designed to bring the power of the Tesira platform to a greater number of audio systems."

Ideal for corporate, government, and higher education settings, TesiraFORTÉ leverages a customer's existing cabling infrastructure to enable cost-effective installations wherever there is a need for networked audio. The Tesira network can be set up and managed centrally or remotely, with the ability to incorporate additional Tesira products quickly and easily as needed. Class-leading audio technologies including Sona™ AEC technology, SpeechSense™, and AmbientSense™ provide clear, echo-free audio communication within any conference room, auditorium, or training space. Each TesiraFORTÉ solution is equipped with 12 mic/line inputs, 8 mic/line outputs, 4-pin GPIO, and 128x128 channels of AVB.

The four new models of TesiraFORTÉ include both AVB and non-AVB versions:

  • TesiraFORTÉ AI provides a basic audio interface for high-quality audio in small- to medium-sized spaces.
  • TesiraFORTÉ CI includes Sona AEC technology for conferencing applications.
  • TesiraFORTÉ TI provides specialized conferencing over a standard telephone service and includes Sona AEC technology.
  • TesiraFORTÉ VI is a VoIP conferencing solution with Sona AEC technology.

Each model can be used as a stand-alone system (non-AVB) or within an AVB-networked solution to deliver the specific features and connections needed for each application. Each device also offers eight-channel USB audio support to interface directly with third-party technology, supporting a variety of conferencing, recording, and background music requirements.

With the launch of Tesira 2.0, Biamp® is expanding its world-renowned certification training by offering the company's first-ever online certification course. This online course is focused on TesiraFORTÉ, providing an alternative to the in-person certification training offered around the globe for those who desire TesiraFORTÉ certification only.

TesiraFORTÉ will begin shipping on April 7, 2014 and is backed by Biamp's five-year warranty. More information on Biamp's full line of solutions is available at www.biamp.com.
