The BIAMP Parlé VBC 2500 conferencing bar is designed around the same technology that is in the Parlé and Tesira products in one hardware device. Using 27 mics arranged in a vertical and horizontal array pattern, the ABC 2500 allows for pattern control on the Azimuth and Vertical fields of the room. In addition to the microphone array technology, the bar incorporates all the DSP elements that go into the Tesira products with an additional level of performance due to the nature of an all in one solution.
The large number of spaced capsules allow for mics to be setup as “clusters” forming very tight coverage over more frequencies on both the Azimuth and Vertical zones in the room. This allows for accurate tracking of seated or standing participants without the pickup of HVAC, adjacent room, or fan noise.
Parlé capsule clusters are positioned and tuned to be focused in the speech range. This allows for an optimized approach of speech pickup even before DSP is introduced. This helps to get the best speech sound to the microphone before any additional processing is added.
The BIAMP Parlé VBC 2500 also features Biamp’s newest noise reduction algorithm that provides reduction of stationary room noise as well as non-stationary room sources. Previous noise reduction focused on sources in the room that were steady and made adjustments to reduce or remove. In our newest noise reduction intelligence, non stationary room sources that are short in duration or have a high variability can be reduced in the same manner.
This noise reduction is based on a deep learning algorithm that uses matching learning to identify and isolate human speech from other sources such as typing, coughing, or sounds from outside the room.
Parlé conferencing bars feature the same onboard DSP technology as featured in the Tesira and Devio families to ensure optimum performance. This includes acoustic echo cancellation, AGC, speech sense, and non linear processing.
The BIAMP Parlé VBC 2500 conferencing video bar has speaker components to provide the best in room audio performance. Stereo speakers have been provided to prepare for UC stereo conferencing needs. 60mm low distortion drivers are provided for uniform wide coverage. The innovative enclosure design includes high volume, sealed enclosures that allow for complete isolation of the speaker assembly, passive radiator from the other bar components within the chassis. Dynamic Bass enhancement (DBE) is included to enhance low frequency content when at lower volumes, as well as ensure zero low-end distortions at high volumes. 20W x 2 onboard amplification with distortion compensation DSP to maximize enclosure efficiency.
The BIAMP Parlé VBC 2500 is designed around a 12MP image sensor for a 4K, 120° field of view. It is great fit for huddle spaces, or small to medium conference room design applications. The VBC 2500 incorporates Biamp Video Intelligence technology into its onboard DSP to provide a strong features that optimize camera performance to the far side participants. Below is a list of the features included in the VBC 2500 onboard camera.
The BIAMP Parlé VBC 2500 ships with included table and wall mounts in the box for easy installation. Both included mounts attach via 4 mounting screws to the rear of the bar. The included wall mount allows for direct install to wall surface with cable pass-thru for ease of installation.
The BIAMP Parle PMA 2000-DM accessory is a VESA mount adapter to allow for both the ABC 2500 and VBC 2500 to be attached to a display with top or bottom orientation. Note: shipping date TBD
The BIAMP Parle PS-12-60 12VDC power supply is included with ABC/VBC 2500 hardware but may also be purchased separately if a replacement is needed.
Biamp provides a camera management application that installs on PC or Mac for control and updates for the Vidi 250, ABC 2500 and VBC 2500 conferencing bars. The control software is available to download from the link below or the Biamp website. This software allows for additional camera features and management available to the room.
In addition to the camera control features, the Biamp Camera Controller software is used for firmware updates to the hardware. These firmware updates will be made available for download, then can updates can be initiated via the camera software application settings page.
Note: Biamp camera preview only available while VBC 2500 is not being used by the UC client. Setting changes may be made in camera application while in an active call via the camera control application without preview. If camera preview is desired, it is recommended to make changes in camera controller before starting UC application.
The USB extension devices listed here have been tested with VBC and ABC 2500 conferencing bars.
