Niles, Ill.-based Shure has announced that the Microflex Advance MXA920 Ceiling Array Microphone and the IntelliMix Room Audio Processing Software have received Zoom Rooms Hardware Certification when paired with the Shure Microflex MXN5W-C Networked Loudspeaker.
Ensuring Reliable, Consistent Sound
The Zoom Rooms Hardware Certification is a key milestone for Shure in providing consistent, reliable sound for today’s hybrid work and learning environments. To achieve Zoom Rooms Hardware Certification, the products underwent rigorous and comprehensive tests in lab environments.
Shure thus reassures IT professionals and integrators that it will deliver the highest standards in collaboration performance. Meanwhile, end users can enjoy premium audio in an easy-to-use conferencing experience.
“We are pleased Shure has pursued Zoom Rooms Hardware Certification, which sends a signal to customers that the hardware meets the high-performance standards for Zoom Rooms,” says Eric Yu, head of hardware partnership, Zoom. “As many organizations look to enable remote collaboration for virtual participants, customers need scalable solutions to virtualize even the most complex hardware spaces.”
With the recent Zoom Hardware certification, Shure says it has expanded its scalability for complex spaces. The flexibility in Shure microphones and DSP for Zoom Rooms delivers a first-class system to any high-rise conference room or classroom on campus. The new flagship MXA920 also features Automatic Coverage Technology. Per the company, this offers precise control of audio capture with minimal setup. Thus, it reduces installation time and costs for integrators.
Bringing High-Quality Audio to Conferencing Rooms
Designed with Next Generation Array Architecture for enhanced directional audio pickup and more natural, clear speech, the MXA920 Ceiling Array Microphone is easy to use for videoconferencing. According to Shure, it is an ideal choice in array microphones for camera tracking, voice lift and sound reinforcement applications.
IntelliMix Room software DSP gives users more choice for audio processing power. It has scalable options mixed simply within the same software for small rooms to large and complex setups requiring multiple microphones. IntelliMix Room also reduces the amount of hardware in the meeting room, collaboration space, or classroom. At the same time, it provides users with clarity and echo-free audio.
Additionally, the denoising feature removes unwanted common noises, like tapping keyboards and mouse clicking. As a result, it helps ensure that users can always sound their very best.
“Achieving Zoom Rooms Hardware Certification on our new MXA920 Microphone with IntelliMix Room software DSP is a big win for Shure. [It] gives customers the certainty that they have a tested and consistent solution for their needs,” adds Richard Knott, senior manager of global systems alliances at Shure.
According to Knott, the innovative technology in both products helps bring the highest quality audio to Zoom Rooms users. It also streamlines the number of devices needed and simplifies the end-to-end setup process.
Shure states that partnering with and connecting to other technology leaders is fundamental for collaboration. It also helps ensure users can seamlessly connect with the top communication platforms. Thanks to this Zoom Hardware Certification, Shure says IT professionals and AV integrators can rely on a unified, user-friendly and easy-to-install audio solution. The company adds this cohesive end-to-end solution allows participants to avoid distractions from what really matters: effective, productive collaboration and learning.
