Biamp Systems

Network Public Address and Voice Evacuation for Railways

Chances are, no matter where you are in the world, you have heard Biamp Systems' products. With hundreds of thousands of professional audio systems installed in more than 100 countries, we do far more than make sound intelligible.

Our systems make human voices and other sounds resonate clearly and naturally by removing echo, unwanted noise and unpleasant frequencies in airports and railway terminals.

The types of organizations that rely on Biamp Systems to deliver, manage and enhance their mission-critical sound include the most prominent corporate headquarters, the most prestigious universities, the most modern Olympic stadiums and even 500-year-old cathedrals.

Continuous innovation has made Biamp the industry leader in professionally installed networked audio systems. Since 1976, our focus has been to make audio more reliable, flexible and easier to control, regardless of the size and configuration of the installation.

Networked public address and voice evacuation systems

Vocia is ideal for small to large-scale public address and life safety systems. Whether it's existing stops, new stations or even future lines, Vocia brings them all together and gives you control over your entire transit system with one easy-to-use set of software tools.

You gain diagnostic system information and the ability to make changes from any workstation, both onsite or remotely. The network-based architecture uses industry standard protocols and integrates with most older, analog systems, without costly rewiring. With that kind of power and efficiency, it is no surprise transit centers everywhere are moving towards Vocia.

Vocia offers a level of reliability that's simply unprecedented. Its decentralized, networked-based architecture means there's no single point of system failure, and redundancies and diagnostics are built-in to ensure the system operates flawlessly. No wonder Vocia meets or exceeds the world's most stringent standards for voice evacuation systems (EN 54-16).

Vocia's powerful software provides compatibility with third-party systems for ease of use and exceptional networked scalability. Since Vocia is an Ethernet-based system, there is no need for special cabling or "home-run" wiring. Endpoints can be installed anywhere on the system, creating a self-healing, self-monitoring web of smart devices. The result is a substantially lower total cost of ownership, plus reduced installation time and effort.

Software that puts you in control

The centerpiece of Vocia's software is a powerful dashboard that allows quick and easy access to diagnostics, system health information, status, usage, audio levels, and more. System alerts are displayed on the dashboard and can be automatically emailed, so you are never out of touch. Plus, the entire interface and navigation is based on the familiar Windows platform, so it's intuitive and easy to navigate.

Vocia also has a powerful set of configuration tools, meaning zones and worlds are created entirely with the software, logically, not physically. That means that moves and changes can be made easily, without having to relocate hardware. You can also add and configure new components in the offline mode and install new devices when you're ready. The system will automatically recognize new hardware as it is added, saving countless man-hours and hassle.
