“Biamp customers consistently tell us our Parlé VBC 2500 is the best-sounding video conferencing bar on the market, with exceptional microphone range,” said Joe Andrulis, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Biamp. “In our new VBC 2800 conferencing bar, Biamp takes this same extraordinary audio capability and adds the latest in camera technology to accommodate larger conference rooms and answer customer demand. Biamp used this same advanced dual lens ePTZ camera system created for the Parlé VBC 2800 for the new compact Vidi 280 camera, letting remote attendees clearly see everyone in the room for an extraordinary conferencing experience for all participants.”

Both the Parlé VBC 2800 and Vidi 280 conference room camera feature a dual 4K UHD ePTZ camera systems with AI auto framing that automatically switches between cameras for the best shot. Compact and silent, this dual camera system features a 16x zoom that delivers long-range image fidelity and sharpness of meeting attendees further down the table in larger meeting rooms.

With integrated Acoustic Echo Cancellation and industry-leading AI Noise Reduction to suppress distracting sounds, the Parlé VBC 2800 utilizes a 27-microphone array and Biamp Beamtracking technology that actively tracks and intelligently mix conversations from around the room. Two smart speakers use distortion compensation and dynamic bass enhancement technology to create room filling audio with superior speech reproduction for effective, efficient meetings. Using one touch AI-powered Biamp Launch, this bar can be setup and optimized for extraordinary audio customized delivering the best performance for the room’s unique specifications.

For those requiring a powerful camera and simplified setup, the Vidi 280 is a small, unobtrusive stand-alone conferencing camera that is easy to mount around a display and easy to connect to room experience systems, including unified communication platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom or BYOM systems such as Biamp MAX Connect. The Vidi 280 enclosure also includes a built-in five-element microphone array for audio needs, but it can also be paired with the Parlé ABC 2500a conferencing audio bar for a higher performance AV meeting room experience.
