Product Details

Features

The Microflex® Advance™ Table Array is a premium networked array microphone that captures high quality audio and provides flexibility in varying A/V Conferencing environments including boardrooms, huddle rooms and multi-purpose spaces. Within the onboard IntelliMix® DSP Suite, Shure’s proprietary Steerable Coverage™ technology deploys up to four discrete simultaneous coverage zones around a table and utilizes an innovative “toroid” ring-shaped pattern to reject unwanted artifacts from overhead such as HVAC or projector fans.

Programmable capacitive-touch mute switches ensure simple user operation. Configurable multi-colored LED light ring displays mute status and displays lighted segments during set-up to confirm coverage areas and auto mix settings. Integrates seamlessly with Dante™ Networked Audio, and third-party preset controllers including Crestron and AMX. All parameters are configured via a browser-based control software, with intuitive control of polar patterns, templates and presets for quick set up for any meeting space requirement.
