Yamaha Unified Communications is ensuring that the University of Virginia's Biocomplexity Institute — a research organization specializing in bioinformatics, computational biology, and systems biology — is delivering the highest quality lectures, meetings, and research presentations, including COVID-19 analysis. After experiencing poor audio and control system integration challenges with off-the-shelf consumer-grade conferencing equipment, integration firm Horizon AVL selected Yamaha's proven CS-700 Video Sound Bar™ and Yamaha YVC-1000 Microphone and Speaker System.

"Audio sets the tone for remote collaboration. If those on the far end can't hear you or if the product is hard to use, it's really challenging to create a high-caliber experience for anyone," said Michael Fitch, vice president of sales and marketing at Yamaha UC. "The installation at the Biocomplexity Institute is a great example of how organizations can deliver better, more productive meetings and classes with easy-to-use conferencing tools built for intelligible, natural conversation."

For the huddle rooms, the Yamaha CS-700 not only resolved the poor audio issues that the Biocomplexity Institute experienced, but also the lack of interoperability with the Crestron control systems installed in the rooms. The all-in-one Zoom-certified Video Sound Bar combines an adaptive beamforming microphone array for perfectly captured conversation; four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility; and a wide-angle HD camera that captures participants and the room in clear detail for students and other participants on the far end. The solution eliminates the inherent inefficiencies of touching and operating disparate video and audio equipment during calls and the eye sore of cables snaked around the room.

The CS-700 features an open API ideal for integration with Crestron and other commercial-grade room controllers. Users can control CS-700's control volume, mute, and camera's zoom, pan, tilt, and input functions directly from the control system, creating a simple conferencing experience. Staff can launch Zoom in seconds, with all the controls they need right at their fingertips.

Inside the institute's medium and large conference rooms, Horizon AVL installed Yamaha YVC-1000 Microphone and Speaker System integrated with Huddly cameras. The Zoom-certified Yamaha YVC-1000 is ideal for both remote learning and high-level conference calls. It features separate intelligent microphones and a full-range speaker unit that can be placed close to a display for naturally blended audio and video to enable full far-end comprehension. Yamaha's adaptive echo cancellation and human voice activity detection (HVAD) sound processing technologies developed over the years minimize background noise and help facilitate a stress-free, fluid conversation.

Because the YVC-1000 allows for up to five microphones to be daisy-chained, it's perfectly suited to pick up the audio around the room. The number of mics used in the room and where they are laid out can be tailored for reliable audio coverage suited to the room size and shape. Yamaha's automatic auto-tuning measures and analyzes the room environment and adjusts acoustic settings to the optimal level while automatic system warnings ensure every microphone is placed for the best pickup. Like the huddle rooms, staff can control the YVC-1000's functions right from the touch panel alongside the other devices in the room.
