Niles, IL (February 9, 2016)—At ISE 2016, Shure has introduced Microflex Advance, a line of networked ceiling and table array microphones, audio interfaces and control software for conference installations, which will be available later this year.
The Microflex Advance Ceiling Array is a networked array microphone that captures audio from above the meeting space with Shure proprietary Steerable Coverage technology, enabling up to eight lobes that are configurable in three dimensions. The microphone can be flush-mounted in any standard ceiling tile grid, and can also be installed below the ceiling with standard VESA-D and wire hanging mounts.
The Microflex Advance Table Array uses onboard IntelliMix DSP Suite, the Company’s proprietary Steerable Coverage technology, to deploy up to four discrete audio channels around a table, using a “toroid” ring-shaped pattern to reject unwanted artifacts from overhead, such as HVAC or projector fans. Programmable capacitive-touch mute switches allow user operation with the ability to customize LED color and shape to indicate microphone status.
Offering analog to digital/digital to analog conversion, the four Shure Audio Network Interfaces provide audio routing in and out of the Dante networked audio domain. Available in standard XLR (mic/line) and block (mic/line) connector versions that include LED and Mute switch pins for logic-enabled analog microphones. All Audio Network Interfaces include a single Ethernet port for Dante Audio routing and a browser-based software for control of connectivity and monitoring.
