Xilica, a provider of collaboration products that help unlock the power of human connection, and Yamaha Unified Communications have announced a solutions partnership designed to simplify the installation and deployment of ceiling audio systems in medium and large collaboration spaces. The joint room solution focusses on integration between the Xilica ecosystem of processors, speakers and control, and Yamaha’s ADECIA RM-CG ceiling-mounted beamforming microphone array, which provides coverage for rooms up to 56 sqm.
Resellers looking to deploy Yamaha’s ADECIA RM-CG system in larger rooms and high-value spaces now have pre-built integration with Xilica’s digital signal processing products — offering no-code, drag-and-drop implementation that enables use of the Yamaha ADECIA RM-CG in complex systems without the need for time-consuming implementation. In future, Xilica will enable its Follow Me automated voice-based camera tracking functionality for the Yamaha ADECIA RM-CG integration that enables voice-triggered PTZ camera control from any VISCA-based PTZ camera, including popular models from Aver, Canon, Sony, Lumens, and others.
Supported Yamaha ADECIA RM-CG functionality within the Xilica software includes online/offline status, full LED control, channel level metering, focus area control, as well as beam angle monitoring.
Xilica and Yamaha’s system solution incorporates the Xilica Solaro QR1-UC, a micro-format, PoE-powered DSP with HearClear AEC technology and integrated control; the Xilica Sonia ceiling audio solution, a CatX ceiling speaker system that also provides a PoE-Port for networking and powering the Yamaha Adecia RM-CG, resulting in a single network drop; and the Yamaha ADECIA RM-CG beamforming microphone array. The bundled solution is available at leading distributors around the world, including Exertis Almo in the United States, DataVisual Marketing in Canada, Exertis AV in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, Esistemas in Portugal, and Amber Technology in Australia & New Zealand.
“Working with Yamaha to offer a joint audio solution for the medium, large and specialty space around the ADECIA RM-CG delivers a great option for our customers,” said Shaun Robinson, VP Product, Xilica. “Yamaha’s ADECIA RM-CG has a strong reputation in the channel for its high-quality, high-value ratio, and extending this with Xilica’s feature-rich portfolio of DSP and ceiling audio products gives integrators the flexibility and functionality they need for spaces of any size and scale.”
“Xilica and Yamaha’s joint solution offers the broad pick-up coverage and superior sound quality of the ADECIA RM-CG with the flexibility of Xilica’s medium and large room solutions,” said Michelle Baeza, Director, Strategic Partnerships, Yamaha Unified Communications. “We are very pleased to be working with Xilica to expand the possibilities for our shared customers and simplifying their system design and installation.”
