[NAMM] BSS Audio Acoustic Echo Cancellation
BSS Audio introduced a new full-bandwidth Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) algorithm for its Soundweb London conferencing processors.
The new 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.
The existing 8kHz-bandwidth AEC algorithm is optimized for POTS, VoIP phone system and digital phone system applications. The new full-bandwidth AEC algorithm is designed to facilitate enhanced fidelity for specific applications, while also offering a reduced processing latency. A property within HiQnet London Architect v3.04 allows users to switch between the new full-bandwidth AEC algorithm and the existing 8kHz-bandwidth algorithm. Dedicated full-bandwidth 'dry' signals for local sound reinforcement or recording are offered for both AEC algorithms.
Existing installations can be upgraded to accommodate full-bandwidth content, without the requirement for additional hardware. However, when upgrading systems to HiQnet London Architect v3.04, they will continue to use the 8kHz-bandwidth AEC algorithm unless manually switched to use the new full-bandwidth AEC algorithm. Therefore, changes will not be forced upon existing systems.
New Soundweb London designs will default to using the new full-bandwidth AEC algorithm, which according to BSS Audio "also gives excellent performance with POTS and VoIP systems, in addition to the accommodation of full-bandwidth content."
"The BLU-101 and BLU-102 along with the other members of the Soundweb London family provide the building blocks for a tailored system solution," BSS Audio says.
