Biamp Streamlines Inclusion of Dante in System Designs
Biamp announces the expansion of the TesiraCONNECT line to include the TesiraCONNECT TC-5D. The dual network device allows designers to seamlessly incorporate both AVB and Dante into their AV solutions, underscoring Biamp’s commitment to multi-protocol support and providing integrators with the tools they need to deliver complete solutions.
TesiraCONNECT TC-5D features the same plug and play simplicity of the recently introduced TC-5 connectivity appliance and adds the interoperability of Dante. With the TC-5D, designers and integrators can easily connect and power via PoE+ both Dante and Biamp AVB devices in the same system with no configuration required.
The new appliance allows connected Dante devices to be managed using Dante Domain Manager as well as configured in Dante Controller. Once installed, the TC-5D can be monitored and maintained using Biamp’s SageVue management platform like other Biamp products.
The new TC-5D is designed to support a range of use cases, from customers utilising a Dante enterprise backbone to bridge multiple Biamp conference rooms together, to solutions that need to combine Biamp Tesira products with common Dante devices such as mixing consoles or wireless microphone systems.
Both TC-5D and the existing TC-5 model come with five network connections, four of which are PoE+-powered RJ-45 ports that support single-cable connectivity. An additional unpowered RJ-45 port is included to easily pass all signals back to a Tesira DSP such as the TesiraFORTÉ. For more complex installations requiring greater port capacity, integrators can daisy-chain up to four TesiraCONNECT devices. Both the TC-5 and TC-5D feature a small, attractive enclosure, which gives integrators the flexibility to mount them under a table, in a cabinet, or behind a monitor. The TesiraCONNECT TC-5D and the TesiraCONNECT TC-5 integrate with Biamp’s SageVue management and monitoring system for ease of management.
The TesiraCONNECT TC-5D will be available in the third quarter of 2020.
