Yamaha’s brand new RM-CG dynamic beamforming ceiling array microphone and RM-CR conference processor are the heart of the new intelligent ADECIA conferencing solution, which applies automated room tuning and dynamic, multi-beam tracking to the challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s conference environments. Designed to provide flexible audio intelligence for the meeting spaces of today and tomorrow, ADECIA can be used in a wide variety of locations and situations.
Available from Q1 2021, this state-of-the-art solution is based on Dante audio networking and comprises the new RM-CG dynamic beamforming ceiling array microphone, the dedicated RM-CR conference processor, Yamaha’s innovative VXL1-16P line array speakers and the optimized SWR2311P-10G PoE+ switch.
ADECIA is very easy to install, set up and operate. The heart of the system is the RM-CR conference processor, which automatically recognizes 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 simple, 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 further intelligent audio technologies – including speaker tracking, adaptive acoustic echo cancellation and more – to deliver crystal clear, stress-free remote communications, without requiring any technical knowledge to set the system up. 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 to suit any space.
The Yamaha RM-CG ceiling microphone and RM-CR processor are also designed to work seamlessly with other Yamaha or third-party components for even more flexible system design. If, for example, a Yamaha MRX7-D matrix processor is used with a PoE switch supplying at least 15 watts, the RM-CG can be integrated into existing installations.* (* In these installations automated room alignment and quick set up web UI is not available.)
