The Microflex Complete Wireless Conference System from Shure now features a Handsfree Mode. The new feature makes for effortless conversation with touchless convenience, making it great for less formal environments. Handsfree Mode permits free-flowing conversation, easing the dynamics of any meeting.
“The audio technology we use in meetings can either stimulate free-flowing discussion or help it adhere to more orderly proceedings,” shared Nalle Magnusson, Product Manager at Shure. “The new Handsfree Mode makes it simple for users to enhance the flow of any discussion, elevating the Microflex Complete Wireless Conference System’s ability to offer audio solutions that ensure meetings stay as natural, or formal, as necessary.”
With the new Handsfree Mode, participants’ microphones are automatically voice-activated without the need to press a physical button. When they are done talking, the microphone turns off automatically. The MXCW allows users to toggle between hands-free, manual, or remote microphone activation.
While in Handsfree Mode, each conference unit evaluates the level, spectral content, and signal-to-noise ratio of the audio at its microphone to determine when speech is present. The conference unit sends a “Request to Speak” signal to the MXCW’s Access Point Transceiver (MXCWAPT). Next, the MXCWAPT assigns it a transmission channel and adds its audio to the floor mix. The entire microphone activation process takes a mere 20 milliseconds, during which time Handsfree Mode preserves all audio so meeting participants won’t miss a single syllable.
