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.”
