NILES, Ill. (November 1, 2012)—Shure Incorporated today launched its line of Centraverse™ Installed Sound Microphones, an economical complement to its existing Microflex® series for the sound contracting market. Available in gooseneck, boundary, and overhead form factors, Centraverse microphones provide quality, reliable audio and a streamlined feature set for users in price-sensitive environments. The microphones are simple to purchase, set up, and install. They meet the key needs of installed audio users by offering “plug and play” solutions for applications at corporate facilities, houses of worship, government institutions, and more.
“Budget-conscious customers requiring installed and portable applications for basic sound reinforcement, such as vocal amplification, will immediately benefit from our Centraverse line, as the product line combines best-in-class performance with simplicity and affordability,” said Chad Wiggins, Category Director for Wired Microphones at Shure. “To ensure the mics are well-suited for their intended environments, we also focused on the aesthetics, designing the products with a modern and industrial style that still offers Shure’s sound quality, reliability, and functionality.”
