Yamaha previews Dante-based Adecia conferencing and collaboration system

Yamaha has previewed Adecia, a customisable pro-audio solution for remote conferencing and collaboration applications, due to launch spring 2021. Based on Dante audio networking, it comprises the new RM-CG dynamic beamforming ceiling array microphone, a dedicated RM-CR conference processor, Yamaha VXL1-16P line array speakers and SWR2311P-10G PoE+ switch.

The RM-CR conference processor automatically recognises 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 through a web-based interface. The system then performs auto mixing of all connected Dante audio sources. These can include a 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. Using a novel spiral layout of microphone elements, the RM-CG provides a narrow, precise beam for voice capture, with continuous background noise eliminated using Yamaha’s advanced noise reduction algorithms and Human Voice Activity Detection (HVAD).  

Other intelligent audio technologies including speaker tracking and adaptive acoustic echo cancellation. 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.
