Control systems are the most visible aspect of an AV system for end users. As such, there are accompanying expectations regarding robustness, user friendliness, and design aesthetic. If the control system doesn’t meet expectations in either form or functionality, the entire AV system is impacted, typically getting a tarnished reputation that may or may not be justified.
Meeting hosts want to walk into a conference room, get the meeting started promptly, and then focus on the discussion. The underlying technology should not be a distraction or impediment to achieving the meeting’s goals; the expectation is that the technology should just work, every time. Equally important is that the technology be easy to use—especially the control interface—and there are ways that Biamp can help meet these goals.

A professional DSP-based audio system is the best way to ensure that the verbal communication in a remote meeting is clear and intelligible and no participants have to strain to hear. Removing the traditional speakerphone in favor of professional microphones and loudspeakers is key to achieving an appropriate level of quality.
