Shure Microflex Wireless for Doctors of BC headquarters in Vancouver

Doctors of BC is the association that represents 95% of all doctors  in British Columbia. At its Vancouver office, the association hosts up  to 45 meetings each month with participants either fully engaged onsite  or spread out across the province participating via teleconference.

The conferencing area at  Doctors of BC headquarters in Vancouver is a very large room that can be  split into three separate meeting rooms. Deploying microphones for the  ever-changing room configurations was a daily challenge, often  compromising sound quality during audio teleconferences.

Doctors of BC needed a flexible, easily deployed microphone system  with high quality sound for the facility’s large audioconferencing area,  which can be divided into two or three independent meeting rooms used  simultaneously.

The 32-channel Shure Microflex Wireless system as a Dante digital  network, fully integrated with the facility’s AV and control systems was  the solution of choice for the conferencing area at Doctors of BC,  installed by IHB Systems, a Vancouver-based design-build custom  integrator.

To accommodate the maximum of 64 participants in the conference  center, IHB Systems installed 32 channels of MXW6/C cardioid boundary  microphone transmitters, each covering two participants. A 4-channel  Shure ULX-D Digital Wireless System, also Dante-enabled, allows  presenters to opt for a handheld BETA58 or WL185 lavalier microphone.

With its browser-based Microflex Wireless Control Software and  rack-mounted Audio Network Interface, Shure MXW connects easily with  other AV networks. Shure control strings made it simple to incorporate  full command of the wireless systems through the room’s Crestron touch  panel.

Shure Microflex Wireless provides automatic frequency coordination,  easy operation, superb sound quality, remote monitoring and control for  the IT Department, and smart charging docks for transmitter storage.  “The entire MXW system is so well thought out, there’s literally nothing  to worry about in a corporate environment,” notes James Smith, IHB  president and founder. “Users don’t have to worry about frequencies and  transmitters are stored in their charging stations, so everything works  as soon as you turn it on. We set up the transmitters to power up  automatically when removed from the charging station. Easy and  intuitive.”
