The IntelliMix P300 Audio Conferencing Processor, a new digital signal processor created specifically for conferencing applications, has been introduced at ISE by Shure.
The P300 offers Shure IntelliMix DSP algorithms that significantly enhance the audio quality in video meetings, a variety of connectivity options, plus seamless operation with Shure Microflex Advance and Microflex Wireless microphone solutions for AV conferencing.
The device is a compact, simple to install solution providing professional conferencing technology that offers the right set of features to create a highly intelligible, collaborative meeting experience in huddle rooms and medium sized meeting rooms.
The new processor connects up to eight Dante microphone channels to a room video system, USB soft codec, or mobile device. Each channel supports multiple IntelliMix DSP features, including Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), Noise Reduction, and Automatic Gain Control, plus best-in-class automatic mixing. These features provide full duplex communication for echo and noise free meetings.
Robert Pletz, marketing manager EMEA for the Shure systems group, told the ISE Daily: “The P300 is the missing link for Shure products. It’s a signal processor that is designed to be used for AV conferencing. We haven’t had any echo cancellation or noise reduction [in our portfolio] before, but now we have with the P300. This is specifically designed for small to medium sized rooms, and is perfectly paired with Microflex Advance.”
The fixed architecture provides simple and intuitive setup, resulting in less DSP programming and commissioning time onsite. The USB connectivity enables the P300 to be used with common soft codec programs such as Skype and BlueJeans, while the 3.5mm connector means anyone on a mobile phone or tablet can easily bring any remote participant into the conversation. Its compact half-rack footprint enables discrete installation behind a display, under a table, or in a credenza.
