SUDBURY, Mass. — February 18, 2021 — Yamaha Unified Communications is now shipping the innovative and customizable ADECIA ceiling solution. A comprehensive classroom audio solution ideal for hybrid and remote learning, ADECIA includes the brand-new multi-beamforming RM-CG ceiling microphone and RM-CR audio processor, as well as Yamaha's long-trusted PoE switches and VXL Series line array speakers to ensure students hear every word.
“Hybrid and distance learning environments have required that instructors stay tethered to their laptop in order for remote students to hear what’s being said,” said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha UC. “But what happens to the audio when the professor goes to use a whiteboard across the room? The audio falls away and online students end up missing critical information, creating an unequal and frustrating learning experience. ADECIA opens up the classroom, using dynamic multibeam ceiling microphones that track the conversation to ensure everyone can hear clearly and learn.”
Qualified for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, ADECIA enables higher education to overcome implementation, configuration, and room acoustic challenges brought on by the surge in online learning opportunities by providing all the equipment required for a successful installation with the highest audio quality. Every component of the system, from the microphones to speakers as well as the required networking and communication equipment, automatically integrates thus reducing time, costs, and installation complexities.
The complete solution immediately detects all components of the system and configures them to be optimized for the room environment, accounting for the location of speakers and microphones, reverberation, and echo behavior. Setting up a room is done through the system's configurator in four effortless steps. With USB, Bluetooth®, Dante, and analog connections, this flexible system fits a variety of learning spaces.
