What is the alliance partnership between Yamaha and Barco?
You can safely combine the solution of Barco video with Yamaha audio in the remote teleconferencing system. Barco's ClickShare and Yamaha's YVC Series formed a partnership alliance in 2020; ADECIA joined the alliance in September 2021. Generally, manufacturers do not guarantee the operation of third-party products, but ADECIA and ClickShare check each other, so we can build systems with confidence.
What are the benefits of the ADECIA and ClickShare systems?
Usually, remote teleconferencing uses a computer monitor, a microphone, and camera, and launches a remote teleconferencing application such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams or the like that is installed on the computer. However, if you want to use an external monitor, microphone, and camera, the host computer is connected by a cable. Even when using "ADECIA," the processor and the computer of ADECIA must be cable-connected by USB. However, the processor is usually in a rack in the corner of the teleconferencing room. For that reason, you have to stretch the USB cable quite a bit from the rack to the computer, and you also have to stretch the HDMI cable in order to share the computer screen.
However, with ClickShare, you can simply connect the cable to the ClickShare Base Unit, and then simply insert the ClickShare button into your computer, so that you can have remote teleconferences using ADECIA immediately. In the first place, ADECIA's ceiling microphone offers the advantage of maintaining a tidy-looking table, so by combining it with ClickShare, you can create a completely wireless remote teleconferencing environment where there are no cables on the table at all.
By the way, do you also use "ADECIA" and "ClickShare” in remote teleconferences?
Yes, of course, I use it. It is very convenient because you don't need to prepare a lot in advance.
May we actually use the system it to try teleconferencing?
Yes, let's give it a try. I will try to connect with Yamaha’s Takanawa office.
You’ll note how we were immediately connected wirelessly.
By the way, what is reason for the iPad?
The ADECIA processor is remotely installed by ProVisionaire, a custom control panel software that allows remote control and monitoring of the system. For example, if you wirelessly convert to ClickShare, even if you don't have a host computer at hand, this iPad allows you manually to mute the microphone. You can also raise or lower the speaker volume, or use the switcher to toggle between videos during a regular meeting. You can also play or stop a Blu-ray player that supports Yamaha's wireless remote called MusicCast. ProVisionaire also offers the advantage of being able freely to design your screen with the feel of PowerPoint according to the application for use.
Would you tell us about the demonstration room for ADECIA?
First of all, the "ADECIA” demonstration room in Hakozaki is where we hold "ADECIA” online training where you can experience "ADECIA" audio every Tuesday. Our product specialists will explain and support the consultation regarding the system and its specifications in an interactive session that will be attended by only one company that applied. This is the venue. After your first online experience, you can also experience the actual machine in this room.
In addition to "ADECIA", the demo room is also equipped with a speech privacy system called "VSP-2" that plays back information masking sounds to protect the privacy of the conversation and to provide an office environment where you can concentrate on your work. We also demonstrate this.
Would also please tell us about the conference room at your Takanawa office to which you are connected.
ADECIA and ClickShare have also been installed in the teleconference room at Yamaha’s Takanawa Office to which we are connected this time.
We usually conduct internal meetings and teleconferences with our trading partners. It is not a specialized demonstration room, but if you contact us, you can come and see the actual machine for yourself at the Takanawa Office. As in this time, you can experience the audio quality and performance of "ADECIA" while being connected to the demonstration room of Hakozaki and the Takanawa Office, and you can connect with the customer's teleconference room to get a real feel for the great performance of the microphone. Furthermore, a tone panel, called TCH, is installed in the teleconferencing room at Yamaha's Takanawa Office. This is just a 3-cm thick panel that can be installed to improve the audio of the room. You can experience these effects.
