Yamaha announces ADECIA conferencing system
Yamaha has introduced the ADECIA conferencing system, which includes the RM-CG beamforming ceiling array microphone and RM-CR conference processor, to apply automated room tuning and multi-beam tracking to conference environments.
Designed to provide flexible audio intelligence for meeting spaces, ADECIA can be used in a wide variety of locations and situations.
Available from Q1 2021, it is based on Dante audio networking and comprises the new RM-CG beamforming ceiling array microphone, the RM-CR conference processor, Yamaha’s VXL1-16P line array speakers and the optimised SWR2311P-10G PoE+ switch.
The RM-CR conference processor automatically recognises microphones and speakers on the same network. During commissioning it automatically sets the optimum sound settings for the environment, taking into account the location of speakers and microphones, the room’s reverberation characteristics and echo responses. Auto-tuning is achieved with a five-step process using a special web-based interface. The system then performs auto mixing of all connected Dante audio sources. The conference processor can handle a wide range of sources, including dynamic microphones, analogue line level I/O, USB, Bluetooth and SIP telephony.
The RM-CG dynamic ceiling array microphone features multi-beam tracking technology which focuses on voices. Thanks to the special spiral layout of its microphone elements, the RM-CG provides the narrowest, most precise beam for voice capture, while continuous background noise is eliminated using Yamaha’s advanced noise reduction algorithms and Human Voice Activity Detection (HVAD). Combined with its beam tracking technology, it can clearly pick up individual voices, even when more than one person is speaking.
ADECIA features speaker tracking and adaptive acoustic echo cancellation.
Dante audio and the control and power are supplied through one LAN cable, while three different mounting methods - ceiling, VESA and wire mount - are included.
The Yamaha RM-CG ceiling microphone and RM-CR processor are also designed to work easily with other Yamaha or third-party components for even more flexible system design.
