Biamp Systems's Vocia 1.3 enable systems integrators to approach critical paging applications more creatively and at a lower cost
Posted on Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Designed for facilities where audio reliability and scalability are paramount, Biamp Systems' EN 54- and ISO 9001:2008-compliant Vocia 1.3 adds increased functionality to its decentralized, network-based system architecture. With these new features Vocia 1.3 continues to be an ideal solution for a critical paging system in North America and critical paging and life safety paging systems elsewhere in the world.

Vocia 1.3 introduces four new amplifiers to the full family of paging product line. These small amplifiers are ideal for projects that have areas to be covered with small zones or provide local analog inputs. Underscoring the importance of reliability, Vocia’s new failover module adds comprehensive failover capability, with 7:1 or dual 3:1 failover, complementing the already built-in, device-to-device and 1:1 channel failover capability in the large amplifier.

Additionally, Vocia 1.3 software provides improved notification options, including more intuitive email notifications and a System Mute option for each “world” within a Vocia system (or "universe").The System Mute function will mute all paging and background audio but does not mute emergency-level pages or messages. Finally, system programming and use is easier with additional VoIP routes, support for 10,000 .wav audio files in the VTP (Vocia Text Protocol) use, and alarm categories that provide better system visualization.

“We're committed to developing a system platform in Vocia that provides systems integrators with the things they need most — flexibility, scalability and reliability. This Vocia release of enhanced hardware products and software tools will enable them to approach critical paging applications more creatively and at a lower cost to their customers,” said Steve Metzger, President of Biamp Systems. “Vocia is built by Biamp in its Oregon factory, and it meets the same incredibly high standards of quality that all Biamp products and services meet. The Vocia 1.3 release represents our continued commitment to the development of the world's best paging platform.”
