Actis Technologies Design Of Distance Learning Center In Bangalore India Relies On Biamp

FRANKFURT, GERMANY, 12 MARCH 2008 — Bombay’s elite audio/video consulting group, Actis Technologies, has designed one of the country’s most advanced distance learning facilities, connecting faculty and students in the Bangalore campus with their remote center Chennai. The system’s audio processing is controlled by Biamp®’s AudiaFLEX CM with TrueSound™ acoustic echo cancellation.

“AudiaFLEX was the best option for this kind of system design,? said Abhimanyu Gupta, Actis Technologies. “It is a powerful DSP processor that allows us to transmit clear audio to the remote classroom using scalable, networking technology.?

Since 1973, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) Bangalore has focused on training management students through technology –enabled education and research. With two campuses spread far apart, the institute’s goal is to provide the same learning experience in both locations using sophisticated, yet easy to use, technology for distance learning. The concept was to ensure that it was simple enough not to constrain teaching styles while still delivering the powerful audio and video presentations necessary.

Multimedia projectors, flat screen displays, and video cameras contribute to the lesson plan, allowing both locations to view the professors as well as the material being displayed. Gooseneck microphones are installed on tables for student use, while the faculty uses wireless lavaliere microphones. In addition, there are multiple audio sources for a wide variety of teaching tools, with audio being processed from both locations.

The AudiaFLEX seamlessly integrates the hardware and software and truly capitalise on the powers of CobraNet® to process and comprehensively distribute the audio. Biamp’s proprietary TrueSound™ algorithm offers the most advanced acoustic echo cancellation, allowing system designers, such as Actis, to create a distance learning environment where the audio can be flawlessly distributed via Cat-5 cable and its processing power accessed via touch panel controllers.

“Equally important to emerging and mature markets, partnership between manufacturers and the integration community is essential to progressive, efficient and effective systems integration,? said Graeme Harrison, Biamp Systems, Vice President of International Sales. “At Biamp Systems, we are honored to work with premium consulting organizations such as Actis Technologies and we aspire to improve our organization and our technologies as a byproduct of this association. Our primary goal is to contribute technologically to optimized systems and this is clearly the case with the impressive design and integration project at the Indian Institute of Management.?
