Simplified and intuitive technology is essential for workplace collaboration. AV/IT technologists continue to acknowledge the trend toward products that are easy to implement in any space and are seamlessly compatible with existing platforms. In addition, dependable audio capture, design aesthetics, and scalability are also expected. Since 2016, Shure Microflex® Advance™ Networked Array Microphones have set the standard for premium array microphone technology; the market-leading MXA910 has popularized the use of ceiling array microphones in corporate, education, and government meeting spaces. Now, Shure is ready to up-the-ante for even the most discerning AV integrators, IT professionals, and end users.
Today, Shure is ushering in a new era of array microphone technology with the introduction of the MXA920 Ceiling Array Microphone. With Automatic Coverage™ technology, MXA920 provides pre-configured audio capture with minimal set up required, dramatically reducing the time and cost of deployments for integrators. The MXA920 also employs Next Generation Array Architecture for enhanced directional pick-up and more natural speech. Plus, the onboard IntelliMix® DSP delivers noise and echo-free performance as well as unprecedented audio clarity and intelligibility for AV conferencing across room types—executive boardrooms, higher education hybrid classrooms, corporate and government meeting spaces. Two form factors (Square and Round) support design integration into even the most sophisticated facilities and meeting spaces.
“AV conferencing is only as good as the quality of participants’ audio,” said Doug Daube, Director of Microphone Systems at Shure. “Now more than ever, we’re seeing our customers require solutions that capture the voice naturally, fitting beautifully into a room’s aesthetic, and making it effortless to connect participants—no matter where they are. These modern and evolving demands are met by the MXA920, ensuring easy deployment and unmatched voice capture.”
Networked audio capture that covers the most challenging acoustic spaces and supports customized applications is table stakes for today’s professionals. With the MXA920, audio professionals can achieve easier deployment and better accommodate demanding applications like camera tracking, voice lift, and sound reinforcement.
“Our experience with the MXA920 has been overwhelmingly positive,” shared Mark Lorenson, Technology Leader in Commercial AV Sales at Intereum. “Testing the MXA920 in our facilities, it is evident that the Next Generation Array Architecture greatly enhances the directional capabilities of the microphone, eliminating distracting background noise. We’ve been greatly impressed with the sound quality and seamless coverage the MXA920 delivers in one of our primary show rooms. On top of that, there’s no setup required – install it in the ceiling and it works.” BCS Bureau
