Picture this: you’re working remotely all morning because you’re waiting for your new refrigerator to be delivered. The fridge is scheduled to arrive at 11 a.m., and your weekly staff meeting is happening at 10. No problem, you think to yourself, I’ll just call into the meeting using my favorite soft codec. You dial the number, enter the access code, and say hello to your colleagues. The boss starts to give a report on the status of your latest project, but you can’t quite understand what she’s saying. Did she call your project wonderful or terrible? Everything sounds muffled. You hear a loud rustling noise. Someone must be shuffling papers too closely to the speakerphone. You try to ask the boss to repeat herself, but no one responds. The meeting continues without you, as you strain to understand what everyone is saying. The call ends. Your fridge is delivered, but you are too distracted to pay attention as the delivery people show you how to use its features. Its ability to make three different types of ice is of no comfort to you now. All you can think about is whether you should bother going into the office at all that afternoon.

Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be. We created our Beamtracking™ microphones to prevent this type of scenario from happening. With a Biamp solution in place, you’d be able to hear and understand your colleagues as clearly as you would if you were in the same room with them. That’s because our microphones actively track each talker, even as they move around the room. Your colleagues back at the office are free to roam the conference room during the call, with no negative effects on call quality. You and the rest of your team can conduct your weekly meeting with the confidence that everyone will be heard, regardless of their location. Your fancy new fridge is delivered. You fill your favorite travel mug with an iced coffee featuring pellet ice straight from the freezer, and head into the office for the afternoon with a confident smile on your face.

This morning’s extraordinary audio visual experience brought to you by Biamp’s Beamtracking microphones.
