Existing meeting room audio equipment can now be used with any UC soft client Microsoft Lync, Cisco Jabber, Google, etc.Equipped with both balanced and unbalanced audio inputs/outputs for maximum flexibility, the AudioBRIDGE easily integrates with external audio mixers, wireless microphones, amplifiers, powered loudspeakers any audio I/O devices that require USB integration.Professional audio equipment connects to the AV Bridge with balanced line level inputs/outputs on a 3-pin Euro Terminal block. Unbalanced audio inputs/outputs are supported with RCA connectors. Key Features Balanced Line Input Mono line level 4dB input on 3-Pin Euro terminal mapped to the USB record channel Unbalanced Line Input Mono consumer level input -10dB on RCA mapped to the USB record channel Balanced Line Output Mono line level output on 3-pin Euro mapped to the USB playback channel Unbalanced Line Output Mono consumer level output on RCA mapped to the USB playback channel USB Audio UAC compliant Speakerphone with configurable terminal type for use with PC-based soft clientThe EasyUSB AudioBRIDGE is an elegantsolution to enable existing professionalaudio equipment to go digital by convertingthe analog audio signals to USB 2.0 for usewith Unified Communication soft clients likeMicrosoft Lync, Cisco Jabber, GoogleWebEx, GoToMeeting and moreProfessional audio equipment can connect to the AudioBRIDGE with balanced line level inputs and outputs on a 3-pin Euro terminal block connector or unbalanced, consumer level inputs and outputs on RCA connectors. TheAudioBRIDGE converts the analog audio to a USB microphone and loudspeaker channel for connection to a PCapplication.The AudioBRIDGE is optimized for use with many UC clients including Microsoft Lync. A unique feature of theAudioBRIDGE is the user configuration of USB terminal type. The AudioBRIDGE is configurable as a USBspeakerphone Type 403 or a USB echo canceling speakerphone Type 405. Use Type 405 when connecting toprofessional audio conferencing DSP mixers with echo cancellation. Use Type 403 when connecting to audioequipment that does not have internal echo cancellation. This feature improves performance with Microsoft Lyncand other soft clients internal echo canceling routines.The AudioBRIDGE includes independent USB and analog gain stages. Gain structures can be configured betweenthe pro audio equipment without being impacted by PC volume controls. Additionally, the AudioBRIDGE evenincludes a serial control RS-232 port for use with external control systems.While the EasyUSB AudioBRIDGE is a simple idea, execution of the idea is one of the most important aspects ofselecting an analog audio to USB 2.0 converter. This solution offers many desirable features specifically includedto perform flawlessly for mission critical UC applications using new or existing audio systems.
