The Parlé TCM-XA is an AVB low-profile ceiling microphone and PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at Class 4, 30W) amplifier for use in Tesira systems. Comprising a network box and a ceiling microphone, each microphone includes Beamtracking technology with four 90-degree zones, providing full 360-degree coverage of the meeting space. Each network box has its own digital signal processing module and comes with an additional RJ-45 connector to add an optional TCM-XEX. A maximum of two microphones are permitted per network box (one TCM-X or TCM-XA with TCM-XEX). The 2-channel PoE+ amplifier includes an internal limiter, selectable power, and a burst mode to handle peak signals.
