Major Japanese brand Yamaha Unified Communications (UC) has announced that they are launching ceiling-mount and tabletop microphones for conferencing applications. Named RM-CG and RM-TT respectively, these microphones are designed around the Dante platform.
Both the Yamaha RM-TT and RM-CG Dante-enabled ceiling-mount microphone feature adaptive echo cancellation, automatic gain control, noise reduction, and dereverberation. The RM-TT has an automatic voice tracking function that immediately selects the microphone closest to the person speaking. It also employs a human voice activity detection technology that anticipates additional voice locations. Aside from that, the RM-TT also features six directional modes, namely omnidirectional, bidirectional, unidirectional, super-cardioid, hyper-cardioid, and toroidal.
On the other hand, RM-CG Dante-enabled ceiling-mount microphone employs dynamic beam tracking, utilizing multiple beams to automatically track voices within the room simultaneously. It also offers three mounting options, namely ceiling mount, wire mount, and pole mount.
Holger Stoltze, Senior Manager of Technical Sales and Marketing at Yamaha UC stated, “Following the success of our ADECIA line, the RM microphone family was engineered to provide all the advantages we built into that complete solution, but in a standalone model for applications utilizing Dante networking protocols. This allows integrators seeking Yamaha’s high-quality audio leadership to upgrade the room’s microphones easily and with confidence. They can, for example, add each microphone to the room’s existing DSP while still benefitting from all of Yamaha’s latest, state-of-the-art audio processing technology. It also allows designers and consultants to use Yamaha technology in new designs with third-party equipment.”
Both the RM-CG and the RM-TT are now available for purchase.
