The What: Biamp has announced Launch, a one-touch automatic device discovery and tuning feature available on its new TesiraFORTÉ X and Devio SCX series processors. According to Biamp’s CEO Rashid Skaf, the feature is one of the most significant developments in the company’s 40-plus-year history. 

The What Else: Launch is designed to allow users of all abilities to set up a professionally tuned conference space, and is suitable for rooms of all sizes. Users simply connect the equipment, then press the Launch button on the TesiraFORTÉ X or Devio SCX, which will immediately identify and configure every device in the system and perform a tuning cycle.

Biamp Launch measures the acoustic characteristics of the room and then automatically applies signal processing, acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), speaker tuning, and noise reduction. Biamp Launch supports Biamp Parlé microphones and a range of other Biamp network peripherals, including the AMP450 range of PoE+-powered amplifiers, the HD-1 dialer, and the EX-UBT USB extender.

“Biamp Launch, Biamp’s one-touch automatic discovery and tuning feature, represents 45 years of audio experience," Skaf said. "We have used everything we’ve learned—from engineering to design to tech support—to make a really complex process simple. Now, with the press of a single button we can design a consistently great audio experience in any space with remarkable speed. It’s one of the most important innovations in Biamp’s history.”

The Bottom Line: By automating the room tuning and commissioning process, Biamp Launch enables consistently clear audio in any space with remarkable speed.
