toa confaudio

In May, TOA Electronics Europe, the electronics manufacturer specializing in audio applications, introduced a new digital audio conference system that is now available: The AM-CF1 combines a microphone array and sound bar in a single device that enables web conferences with natural sound.

Combining 8 beam-steering microphones with two active 2-way speakers in a single device, which is easy to install and set up, the AM-CF1 makes web conferencing sound as natural and clear as if meeting face-to-face. Providing a state-of-the-art solution for small or medium sized conference rooms it allows collaboration between remote locations without distance interfering with the exchange.

The device combines technical features that create the sound of a completely natural conversation: The DSP (Digital Signal Processor) developed by TOA supports sound pickup by effectively focusing on the sound sources in the room and improves sound quality through Echo Cancellation and Automatic Noise Reduction. The direction and function of the microphones as well as the mute mode are indicated by LED lights.

The AM-CF1 can be easily installed and adapted to the room environment via a web browser. The clear operating software offers various settings such as input and output volume control, mixing, equalizer and coverage area setting (up to 6m range). With its in and output connections the AM-CF1 can easily be linked to existing AV systems. In addition, further participants can be connected via Bluetooth.

The AM-CF1 can be installed on the wall and, as available in both black and white, will compliment existing interiors leaving tables free for documents, sketches and ideas. Of course, the integrated sound bar can also be used for high-quality audio playback.

With the AM-CF1, TOA is expanding its broad portfolio of conference systems with an audio solution that establishes natural acoustics in online conferences – as if you are in the same room.
