AVI-SPL and Biamp Team Up for First Webinar of 2012

AVI-SPL University OnlineFleming Island, Fla. – Is the audio in your video conference sessions the best it can be? What you don’t know about intelligible audio can affect the quality of your conferencing experience. Join us at 1 p.m. Tuesday, January 31 for Successful Communications: What You Need to Know About Audio Conferencing,” hosted by AVI-SPL and presented by Biamp. Click on the link above to register for this free event.

During this webinar, Biamp’s Read Wineland will teach you what to look for in a quality audio conferencing system (as well as the audio part of a video conferencing system). The microphones, DSP core electronics, loudspeakers, installation and room acoustics all need attention. If any one of those elements are inadequate, then your communications will suffer. Read will also explain and discuss the “state of the art” in Acoustic Echo Cancellation and the advantage of networked media systems in the distribution of audio and video.

Read Wineland is regional director Eastern North America for Biamp. Prior to joining the company in 1995, Read was an independent representative for Biamp and other professional audio product lines while based in Ohio. He also worked for Hollywood Sound Systems, and worked on such events as the Academy Awards, Emmy Awards and Saturday Night Live. Read holds a CTS (Certified Technology Specialist) certification awarded by Infocomm, the AV Industry’s governing body and is a member of the Audio Engineering Society.
