Shure Announces MXA710 Linear Array Microphone Now Certified For Microsoft Teams Rooms
Shure Offers an End-to-End Audio Ecosystem Certified for Microsoft Teams
CHICAGO, May 10, 2021—Shure is announcing that its recently launched MXA710 Linear Array Microphone is now Certified for Microsoft Teams. The MXA710 joins Shure's portfolio of Conferencing Solutions already certified for Microsoft Teams, giving installers and end users even more options for their environments.
The MXA710 is designed for high-quality audio capture in premium AV conferencing environments. Whether it’s under or next to a wall-mounted display, or flush mounted in a table, the low-profile form factor of the MXA710 subtly blends into any meeting room aesthetic without sacrificing audio quality. Patented Steerable Coverage™ technology captures audio anywhere in the room, featuring four lobes with the 2-foot array, and eight lobes with 4-foot array.
With onboard IntelliMix® DSP, the MXA710 provides Automatic Mixing, Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Noise Reduction, and Automatic Gain Control, providing all the processing to help ensure echo and noise-free audio, ensuring end users experience a high-quality, unifying AV conference experience. Autofocus™ technology fine-tunes each lobe position in real-time, adjusting for meeting participant movements.
Using Designer System Configuration software for deployment, room coverage templates enable quick and easy lobe optimization specifically for wall, ceiling, or table installations.
Available in 2-foot (60cm) or 4-foot (120cm) lengths and three colors (white, black, and aluminum), the MXA710 is compatible with both Dante and AES67 audio networking protocols. It is PoE-powered and features LED status bars at each end of the array with configurable colors and brightness. The smaller form factor is ideal for smaller meeting spaces up to 7-8 people that are being equipped with video conferencing to provide greater virtual meeting capability. The larger form factor supports large meeting rooms that seat up to around 18 people. Multiple MXA710 units can be used to provide coverage for even larger spaces.
“Shure's solutions are built for the hybrid workplace. Your customers, clients, and students will feel like they’re in the room with you when you use our market-leading array microphones,” said Paul Gunia, Director of Technology Partnerships at Shure. “Our entire lineup of Microflex® Advance array microphones is now Microsoft Teams Certified.”
