Vocia controllers complement varying system sizes and needs, from output level control
to emergency/fire alarm interfaces.
SERVERS
[12]
Vocia servers provide user-controlled audio, including global paging and text-to-speech
functionality.
SOFTWARE
[14]
From an individual world to a multi-world universe, Vocia software is intuitive and easy to use.
MEET THE NEXT GENERATION
Vocia isn’t just the new Biamp DSP—it’s a movement. With a decentralized, networked approach that is
as hardy as it is capable. Say goodbye to precarious centralized processing and routing. No matter how
challenging your needs or circumstances, Vocia keeps working. And no matter where you are around the
globe, you can rely on Vocia’s compliance with recognized safety standards. It’s the world’s first advanced,
networked paging system to offer EN 54-16 product certification, along with EN 60849 and AS 60849
system verification.
EASILY SCALABLE, FROM SIMPLE TO SPECTACULAR
Vocia fits a wide range of installation sizes and configurations because every component contains memory and
processing resources that communicate intelligently across your network. Its modular hardware and easy-to-use
software help you imagine and implement the right approach for a simple overhead paging application or a
complex system with many zones—and everything in between.
With Vocia, it’s also a snap to expand the reach and feature set in your installation at any time. Vocia can do more
and demand less of you and your end users.
GOODBYE, COMPLEXITY. HELLO, CONFIDENCE.
Say farewell to the traditional centralized system approach. And the limitations that come with it. Vocia distributes
message routing and processing across the network, so it eliminates the chance that a single failure can bring
down your system. You can monitor, log and control components remotely, and plug and play new units as you wish. In
short: your maintenance duties scale down as your system capabilities scale up.
With Vocia, you can be confident that your networked paging and voice evacuation system will do its job here and
now, as well as into the future.
MORE RELIANCE ON YOUR COMPLIANCE
Biamp is the first U.S. manufacturer to earn EN 54-16 certification. We designed Vocia from the ground up to
comply with requirement for Voice Alarm Control and Indicating Equipment (VACIE). This gives you peace of mind
that your system will work to keep people safe and informed.
Vocia builds on network standards you already know, including CobraNet® for single-site installations and TCP/
IP for multi-site installations. You simply extend your existing practices for network redundancy, security and
monitoring to your paging and voice evacuation system.
BUILT ON DEPENDABLE BIAMP QUALITY AND RELIABILITY
For over 30 years, organizations around the world have depended on Biamp to deliver reliable and useful
innovation. No matter where you are in the world, you’ll find Biamp technology working within audio systems in
health care, higher education, transportation, government, event facilities and other demanding environments.
With Vocia, you’ll get the power to move forward with a distributed approach to paging and voice evacuation.
With Vocia at the heart of your system, you can always count on sound that moves people.

VOCIA® SYSTEM OVERVIEW
One of the newest Networked Media Systems from Biamp, Vocia, provides facilities of all sizes with efficient, flexible paging, public
address and voice evacuation systems with the security and dependability you need.
Vocia offers a high degree of scalability, from simple overhead paging applications to advanced paging systems spanning
multiple zones and structures. With decentralized processing and page routing, Vocia’s smart units use network technology to
distribute intelligence—eliminating the potential for a single point of system failure. As the first U.S. manufacturer to earn EN 54-16
product certification, plus EN 60849 and AS 60849 system verification. Biamp built Vocia from the ground up to meet the exacting
requirements for Voice Alarm Control and Indicating Equipment (VACIE).
With flexibility, efficiency and scalability, Vocia isn’t just the newest Networked Media Systems on the market today—it’s also one
of the most fail proof.
This diagram illustrates a standard, single-world Vocia system installation.

VOCIA SOFTWARE
SOFTWARE
The main screen of the Vocia software provides an easy, at-a-glance
overview of your universe, whether it contains a single world or several.
This hierarchical view lists all devices included in the universe by world,
device ID, online and configuration status, along with the loaded
firmware version. The colors indicate the health of each device listed.
An overall system alarm tab (“Acknowledge Alarms” in the upper right
corner) flashes when an alarm or fault is detected in the system.
The software is designed for ease-of-use and intuitive interfacing.
Most of Vocia’s devices offer fixed-chain DSP parameter adjustment
and live control. This screen shows the properties sheet of the VI-6
with its audio and live control settings; filters are applied to the input
levels, representing one possible configuration. The filters are displayed
as individual lines in the EQ filter graphic.
The scheduler feature (found under world properties by doubleclicking on the world icon) is used to configure schedules for
recorded announcements, background events (e.g. background
music coordinated with the time of day) and user audio input events
(e.g. an announcement that broadcasts for a certain period
of time in a specified zone).
PRO D U C T CATALO G • P 1 5
NOTE: A VO-4 is required for each four CobraNet outputs from Vocia
into Audia. For example, if 10 outputs are required from Vocia into Audia,
three VO-4s will be required to establish the outputs. No additional
hardware is required for inputs to Vocia from Audia.
TTS-1 & LSI-16/LSI-16e WEB BROWSERS
The Text-to-Speech server supports a windows client that is used to
enter the text segments for speech conversation. The LSI-16/LSI-16e
supports a browser interface for remote monitoring of emergency faults.
VOCIA COBRANET BRIDGE
Features of the Vocia software are designed to interface to any
CobraNet audio system using explicit bundle numbers. Now you can
expand existing audio systems and add Vocia functionality for critical
paging and voice evacuation.
