Costa Mesa, CA (January 10, 2017)—QSC and Shure have announced the expanded integration of Shure Microflex Advance and Microflex Wireless microphones with the entire Q-SYS Platform. The partnership includes the release of new control plug-ins for the Shure MXA910 Ceiling Array Microphone and Microflex Wireless microphone systems. The latest Q-SYS Designer Software v5.3 update enables many audio connectivity options including audio integration via Dante, analog audio as well as AES67.
The Shure MXA910 Control plug-in, co-developed by QSC and Shure, allows a variety of audio control, preset recall, and monitoring functions on the MXA910 from the Q-SYS platform using Q-SYS peripherals and touch screen controllers.
By using AES67 as the audio integration method, every Q-SYS Core processor in the platform can be integrated with the MXA910 without any additional hardware bridging devices or software licenses. This includes the Q-SYS Core 110f, offering cost effective pairing of DSP, AV Bridging, and Control with its 16 channels of AEC, which can accommodate up to two MXA910s in a single rack space over a single network connection.
The setup guide, also co-developed by QSC and Shure, provides precise instructions on how to integrate the MXA910 with Q-SYS using AES67 for networked audio streaming and the built-in plug-in for control and monitoring of the MXA910 from Q-SYS.
