Microflex® Advance™ Conference Room Audio
Amazing Audio for
Corporate AV conferencing often happens in spaces with premium visual aesthetics and poor audio quality. With Microflex® Advance™ Ceiling and Table Array Microphones, Shure combines the trusted quality of Microflex Microphones with a best-in-class level of flexibility, technology and control. The result is unmatched “invisible audio” for elite AV conferencing environments.
Groundbreaking accuracy in audio capture with proprietary Steerable Coverage™. The elegance of Dante™ Networked Audio. Seamless, browser-based control that offers easy integration with existing AV/IT infrastructure.
With Microflex Advance, installers don’t have to compromise room aesthetics for audio quality. And IT professionals don’t have to be audio experts to deliver expert audio.
Hardware & Software
Watch a demonstration of the ceiling array’s Steerable Coverage technology with multiple talkers at opposite ends of a meeting table, including a comparison to an overhead microphone.
Watch a demonstration of the table array’s directional capabilities with four talkers at a square table, including the new toroid polar pattern that greatly reduces overhead HVAC noise.
Ceiling Array Microphone
Features Steerable Coverage of up to 8 separate lobes to capture sound sources from above more accurately than any other product. Automatic positioning tool in control software easily adjusts lobes toward each talker’s voice. Intuitive user interface offers easy configuration of presets, templates and polar patterns.

Intellimix® DSP Suite
Both the ceiling and table array include an expanded suite of proprietary IntelliMix DSP tools that optimize voice quality by reducing room noise and improving speech intelligibility.
Configure and control incredibly accurate polar patterns captured from participants in any location of a meeting space. Preconfigured templates in the control software simplify setup.
Increases presence and reduces noise pickup and transmission. This yields improved clarity, intelligibility and seamless interaction between conference sites.
Employs a simple, reliable way of reducing acoustic echo by preventing far end participants from activating local microphone channels. IntelliMix® Echo Reduction is very effective as a front end to codecs with single channel AEC. Ceiling array only.
Parametric Equalization (PEQ)
Each ceiling array and ANI4 channel features a 4-band PEQ for the precise control of sound. Table arrays feature a 4-band PEQ that is assignable to any channel including the automatic mixer output channel.
MXA910 Intelligibility Calculator
The Intelligibility Calculator displays the distances at which the MXA910 transmits talkers' voices with high speech intelligibility.
The MXA910 Intelligibility Calculator is based on the following room conditions:
A weighted room noise = 40dBSPL(A)
RT60 (reverb time) = .55s @ 1kHz
Seated height = 4 FT / 1.22 M
Standing height = 6 FT / 1.83 M
Under these specified conditions, the microphone maintains an "A" rating based on the STIPA (Speech Transmission Index for Public Address systems) international standard at distances up to 16 feet between the microphone and talker. In better acoustic environments, the STIPA "A" rating may extend beyond 16 feet.
For more information on the STIPA intelligibility metric, please see IEC standard 602682-16. You also can review the qualification bands and typical applications here.
