SIA Acoustics and Boston Light and Sound Upgrade Robsham Theater With JBL VERTEC® Subcompact Line Array Elements

The Robsham Theater Arts Center (RTAC) is a focal point of Boston College in Massachusetts, USA. Built in 1981, the facility houses the 591-seat Robsham Theater, along with an exhibit space, a studio theater and other facilities.

BSS Audio® Introduces Full-Bandwidth Acoustic Echo Cancellation Algorithm for Soundweb London Conferencing Processors

BSS Audio®, a Harman International Company (NYSE-HAR), today introduced a new full-bandwidth Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) algorithm for its Soundweb™ London conferencing processors. The new full-bandwidth AEC algorithm is released with HiQnet London Architect v3.04 and can be used with existing Soundweb London AEC Input Cards and the recently-introduced Soundweb London BLU-101 and BLU-102 devices.
