MEET THE NEXT GENERATION
Vocia is more than a basic public address system. It’s the result of Biamp understanding evolving
communication trends and the demands put on today’s systems. By using proven IT technologies
and applying them to mass communication needs, Vocia delivers a superior alternative to
the traditional, analog public address system. No matter how challenging your needs or
circumstances, Vocia delivers a system to meet your requirements, today and in the future.
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 units, expanding your
system as needed. In short: your maintenance duties scale down as your system capabilities scale up.
With Vocia, you can be confident that your networked public address and voice evacuation system will do its job
here and now, as well as into the future.
MORE RELIANCE ON YOUR SYSTEM
Vocia was designed to do more than deliver clear information, it was designed with an understanding of the
exacting system requirements around the globe. As the first U.S. manufacturer to earn EN 54-16 certification,
you gain peace of mind that your system is backed by quality, commitment to excellence, and reliability.
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
Since 1976, 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 public address and voice evacuation.
With Vocia at the heart of your system, you can always count on sound that moves people.

vocia® System overview
As one of Biamp’s Networked Media Systems, Vocia, provides facilities of all sizes with efficient, flexible 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, networked public address 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. And with Biamp’s commitment to meeting the
various system needs around the world, we built Vocia from the ground up to meet the exacting requirements for Voice Alarm Control
and Indicating Equipment (VACIE).
This diagram illustrates a standard, single-world Vocia system installation.

The VO-4e is an enhanced networked audio output expansion device allowing the
user to add four line-level and CobraNet output channels to a Vocia system. The
VO-4e can be configured for channel-to-channel or device-to-device failover and
uses comprehensive fixed-chain digital signal processing within the device,
including volume control, ducking, equalization, compressor/limiter, speaker
crossover, delay, and output gain. Emergency messages for life safety systems are
stored in non-volatile memory. Two RJ45 connectors on the rear panel of the
device provide redundant connectivity to process control data, audio and power
over a single Ethernet cable. In addition to this the VO-4e also has dual inputs for
accepting power from an auxiliary supply. The per-channel paging relay provides a
contact closure when paging is active on an associated channel.

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 (requires and MS-1 to be available) (found
under world properties by double clicking on the world icon) is used
to configure schedules for recorded announcements (MS-1 required),
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).
The TTS-1nc Text-to-Speech Nursecall Middleware server supports the
same windows client that is used to enter text segments for speech
conversion as the standard TTS-1. However, the TTS-1nc server supports
a direct RS-232 serial interface to Rauland-Borg Responder 4 or 5 pocket
page servers to allow automatic text conversion. It also provides a
software user interface that allows graphical configuration of the
Middleware and Matching Rules Engine that is available on the TTS-1nc.

Vocia into Audia, three VO-4s or VO-4e’s will be required to establish
the outputs. No additional hardware is required for inputs to Vocia
from Audia.
TTS-1/tts-1nc & LSI-16/LSI-16e Web Browsers
The Vocia TTS-1 Text-to-Speech server supports a windows client that
is used to enter the text segments for speech conversion. The LSI-16/
