Phoenix Audio Technologies, a provider of audio communication solutions for distance learning and collaboration is partnering with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) to improve the system that facilitates these needs for one of its scientific research teams.
Caltech recently purchased a large number of Phoenix’s Duet PCS USB desktop speakerphone systems. These filter audio signals to limit background noise and interference. Phoenix’s audio support is intended to improve Caltech’s Enabling Virtual Organizations (EVO) System, a collaborative learning application that combines audio, video, chat, whiteboard, and screen-sharing.
The Duet units will be used by scientists and staff involved in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) project. The LIGO project involves about 850 participants, based around the world, who are engaged in academic research in physics.
Caltech received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to improve the EVO system. Participants report greatly improved audio quality since the Duet system has been deployed.
