Shure and Neat form alliance to tackle challenging spaces

Shure and Neat ensure integration between Neat Bar Pro and multiple Shure Microflex Ecosystem Solutions, for large, acoustically challenging spaces

Shure and Neat have formed an alliance to deliver an enhanced meeting experience in large and acoustically challenging spaces. By joining forces, Shure and Neat ensure integration between Neat Bar Pro, a video meeting bar from Neat, and multiple Shure Microflex Ecosystem Solutions.

“Our alliance with Neat brings the best of video and audio into a single room,” said Peter James, VP global business development, Shure. “Our integrated solutions can now easily be installed where customers want to have both a front-of-room all-in-one device and extraordinary audio coverage throughout the space. We are thrilled to be providing a first-of-its-kind combination for large conferencing environments that will provide better experiences and more reliable collaboration.”

The partners believe their technologies are complimentary. They say that, while Neat Bar Pro users can auto-frame, zoom in on and in-room participants individually, no matter where they’re positioned, devices from the Microflex Ecosystem extend Neat video deployments into larger and more complex spaces.

“We believe our mutual customers will love the amazing experience that we can bring to large and acoustically challenging meeting spaces through this collaboration with Shure, the leading expert in the installed audio space. This simple, intuitive solution extends Neat’s capabilities to support a full range of room types,” said Sherri Pipala, senior director of global alliances, Neat.

For large boardrooms, or spaces where key participants need to be seen and heard anywhere they sit, the Shure Microflex Advance MXA902 Integrated Conferencing Ceiling Array and Shure’s ANIUSB-MATRIX USB Audio Network interface will provide audio, while Neat Bar Pro captures video throughout the room.

For conferencing environments, like all-hands training rooms and divisible spaces, the combination of  Neat Bar Pro with the Microflex Advance MXA920 Ceiling Array Microphone, an IntelliMix P300 Audio Conferencing Processor and MXN5W-C Networked Loudspeaker provides advanced features and functionality.

These different combinations of Neat Bar Pro and Shure Microflex Ecosystem devices are certified for Zoom Rooms. “Zoom customers are looking for exceptional video and audio experiences in all kinds of meeting spaces, which is why we’re excited about this partnership between Neat and Shure. Together, they provide a simple, easy to use solution that extends to the most challenging large spaces” added John Stearns, global head of Zoom spaces, Zoom.
