At this year's Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016, microphone manufacturer Shure will return to Amsterdam's RAI to showcase several new products to the systems integration market.
Shure's new booth, Stand C90 in Hall 3, has been purpose-designed to accommodate its planned technology showcases and product launches this year.
The main product news is the debut of a new networkable conferencing audio solution, Microflex Advance, designed to dramatically improve the audio quality for modern conferencing applications where pristine speech intelligibility is of utmost importance. The Dante-enabled solution fits with any room aesthetic, provides seamless integration and ease of use, and flexibly adapts to any room configuration.
In addition, line extensions to a number of Shure systems are being shown for the first time at ISE. These include:
• Two-channel versions of the Microflex Wireless System, consisting of a new networked charging station and wireless access point transceiver for lower channel count applications.
• The Shure DIS-CCU, one new central control unit for both the Shure DIS discussion and the conference system, plus the introduction of a new feature license model, which simplifies the existing 17 feature licenses down to five.
• A new bodypack-version for ULX-D Digital Wireless Systems featuring a LEMO3 connector.
As in previous years, Shure will also be participating in ISE's programme of 20-minute 'flash' seminars, hosted by InfoComm on stand 12-N100, as well as seminars in the ISE Commercial Solutions (Stand 8-D360) and Audio Solutions Theatres (Stand 7-Z160). Covering how advances in audio and DSP technology are improving meeting spaces, the seminars will explore the influence of microphone polar patterns on sound and intelligibility and the use of 'invisible' mics in conferencing applications.
