Shure is unveiling the brand new standard in in-ceiling array microphones with the introduction of the MXA920. The microphones provide pre-configured audio capture with minimal setup required, reducing the time and cost of deployment for integrators. The MXA920 also employs Next Generation Array Architecture for enhanced directional pick-up and more natural speech.
With the MXA920, audio professionals can achieve easier deployment and better accommodate demanding applications like camera tracking, voice lift, and sound reinforcement.
“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.”
Key differentiating features of the MXA920 include:
- Automatic Coverage Technology—the MXA920 provides superior pre-configured audio capture that requires minimal setup. Out of the box, it seamlessly and automatically covers up to a 30×30 foot (9×9 meter) area, reducing setup time and effort – potentially offering integrators significant savings in time and labor. Coverage can also be further customized to suit different room layouts or seating arrangements, to capture only the meeting participants you want – while avoiding the areas you want to exclude.
- Next Generation Array Architecture—the MXA920 offers more directional pick-up across the frequency spectrum to maintain accurate coverage of specific areas while enhancing voice quality for more natural sound – and focusing less on other sounds in the room. The completely new DSP algorithms enable more natural speech for participants to be heard clearly and precisely.
- Greater Application Flexibility—the MXA920 sends the precise location of every speaker to your camera control system for more accurate camera tracking. Steerable Coverage™ technology with individual audio outputs enables higher gain before feedback in Voice Lift and Sound Reinforcement applications.
The MXA920 is certified for Microsoft Teams when used with the IntelliMix P300 DSP and Microflex MXN5C network loudspeaker. The microphone array also offers versatile mounting options making it easy to integrate into modern, formal conference rooms and spaces.
