Transportation authorities increasingly value public address system redundancy, flexibility, interoperability and lower cost of ownership because of the increased security threats and budget constraints. The new paradigm requires automated interoperable systems that reduce costs and improve response times and accuracy, while increasing efficiency and safety.
Vocia delivers an alternative to the traditional, centralised public address system that is incapable of distributing to remote platforms and stops; delivering scalability, flexibility and reliability without the need for dedicated wiring or a complete system replacement as needs grow and change.
When designing a system as critical as a passenger information system, Vocia’s feature-rich options and flexibility deliver what is needed to create the perfect system regardless of the size. Vocia enables you to do more than what is possible with a legacy system by leveraging your standard Ethernet infrastructure and reducing your total cost of ownership. Plus, the decentralised architecture distributes control, processing and audio routing across the network – a must for multiple connected facilities that span a great distance, yet must act as one.
One of Vocia’s advantages is the ability to incorporate most of your facility’s legacy analogue audio system while bridging to the future as your requirements change. It is this balance of reuse and advanced future proofing that provides you an ideal system regardless of how unique the need is. Whether for a simple overhead paging application or the most advanced integrated system, Vocia’s features deliver the solution for today and as your needs grow.
Since Vocia is network-based with decentralised processing and page routing, it delivers a high degree of system scalability and reliability. Multi-building facilities, like train stations and platforms, require a variety of paging capabilities – from live, delayed and pre-recorded messages to zone-specific passenger announcements.
The modular construction of Vocia allows for easy expansion and message management, adding features such as additional zones and buildings as needs grow and change. Vocia comes standard with Biamp System’s sound quality and reliability.
