CyberData’s new InformaCast Enabled Ceiling Speaker, a PoE and VoIP public address product, receives InfaCast messages or messaging from a multicast source.
The device carries a competitive price without sacrificing quality, the company says.
“Multicast refers to a group communication mechanism where audio data can be transmitted to multiple destinations simultaneously,” the company explains in a press release.
“The InformaCast Enabled Ceiling Speaker is capable of receiving both Singlewire’s InformaCast and multicast messages in varied environments such as schools, SMB, healthcare and nursing care facilities, and more.”
“We’re all seeing the effects of tariffs on the free market and it concerns us because our mandate is to make quality VoIP endpoints with options that meet conservative budgets. As soon as we released the Multicast Ceiling Speaker, we received calls requesting an InformaCast version,” said Phil Lembo, President and CEO of CyberData.
“Luckily for us, we are flexible and nimble when it comes to listening to and responding to what our customers and Distributor/VAR network have been telling us, so this release is a natural for us. We keep hearing that customers need another option. So, very quickly, we’ve developed and delivered that option, without sacrificing the CyberData quality customers have come to expect.”
Additional features of the CyberData InformaCast Enabled ceiling speaker:
- paging prioritization and background music
- support for 10 multicast groups
- web-based configuration and configurable event generation for device health and status monitoring
“These are critical features required by customers such as schools and universities and CyberData was cognizant of these requirements during the development of the device,” the company says.
