TableMIC allows users to enable or disable button functionality during configuration
Designed to reduce distracting noises in a conference room, Vaddio’s TableMIC incorporates a solid metal base construction, acoustical fabric wrap and padded rubber feet to reduce table vibration noise. It also features a capacitive touch control surface for a reported silent operation. Available in black or white, TableMIC is said to simplify use by allowing users to enable or disable button functionality during configuration. Three unidirectional condenser microphone elements provide 360° coverage. Each element is equipped with integrated echo cancellation and DSP, including equalisation, filtering and automatic gain control. The DSP in a companion product such as the Vaddio AV Bridge Matrix Pro or EasyUSB Mixer/Amp provides an AEC reference from the far end and applies it to individual mic elements, so conference calls are reportedly crystal clear on both ends of the conversation.
According to the manufacturer, with the plug-and-play design, installation is simple – all that is needed is a standard Cat-5 cable between the TableMIC microphone and EasyMIC-compatible Vaddio equipment. Power, control and audio are all carried over the single cable. The TableMIC supports cable lengths of up to 30m between the microphone and EasyMIC ports. TableMIC microphones work with Vaddio products designed with an EasyMIC port.
In other news, the Vaddio Deployment Tool has been launched, a Windows-compatible application that is said simplify equipment installation by providing a single interface for configuration management, device discovery, mass firmware updates and remote troubleshooting. The software tool shows all compatible Vaddio products across a deployment on one screen, allowing users to select devices from the network then choose an action such as configure controls, reboot the device, unmute the audio or update firmware.
