US-based networked media systems provider, Biamp Systems, and manufacturer of networked microphones, Shure Incorporated, have announced the integrated compatibility between Biamp Tesira audio processors and software and Shure Microflex Advance array microphones with Steerable Coverage.
The new release of Tesira software and hardware will take place in February 2017 at ISE. This technology will make it possible for users to interact with the Dante-enabled Shure MXA910 ceiling array microphone and control signal levels within the Tesira software.
It will enable system integrators to deliver flexible, fully-digital audio solutions that meet the complex needs of their clients while reducing installation and setup time.
Tesira’s software also allows system designers to build complete AV solutions using features like its intuitive drag-and-drop interface for a variety of software blocks. It also enables designers to plan a completely integrated AV solution, including yet-to-be-built future phases.
Graeme Harrison, executive vice president of marketing for Biamp Systems commented on the collaboration: “We’re excited to come together with an industry leader like Shure in an effort to streamline the integration of our products.
“Both companies value customer feedback and leverage it in future product development. Adding Shure microphone-specific software blocks to Tesira’s cutting-edge software made sense as it allows system designers to easily incorporate the power of Shure mics with the power of Tesira. Other developments in this launch will bring this capability to the whole range of Tesira processors, and we will add additional functionality in future releases.”
Adding his thoughts, Chad Wiggins, senior director for networked systems at Shure said: “Interoperability between the MXA910 ceiling array microphone and Tesira processors will make it easier for system integrators to take advantage of its class-leading voice pickup and steerable coverage in a wide assortment of meeting room applications. Together, they deliver a more powerful yet more streamlined solution, with centralised control, simpler installation, and fewer components.”
