Shure has announced what the company claims is a ground-breaking innovation in digital signal processing (DSP) for AV conferencing.
The IntelliMix Room is the first audio processing software for Windows 10 PCs that is fully optimised for use with Shure networked system microphones.
IntelliMix Room is a software-based DSP that requires minimal customer setup or additional special hardware, which reduces the costs and footprint required to deploy premium AV conferencing. It can be deployed to in-room Windows 10 PCs and meeting control devices that are already in-place to run popular software-based AV conferencing services, bringing premium audio to video conference calls.
This new software-based approach also allows systems integrators to install more rooms, more easily, more consistently and more cost-effectively than traditional hardware-based DSP solutions. Providing up to 16 channels of audio processing, IntelliMix Room deploys the same algorithms as Shure’s P300 IntelliMix Audio Conferencing Processor, but is installed on the same in-room PC as the conferencing soft codec.
IntelliMix algorithms are specifically designed to optimise the performance of Shure’s range of premium conferencing microphones such as the MXA910 ceiling array, MXA310 table array and Microflex Wireless. IntelliMix Room aggregates and optimises the audio output of multiple microphone sources and thus scales-up to support even more complex boardroom deployments. With Echo Cancellation, Noise Reduction, Automatic Mixing, Automatic Gain Control, and secure Dante routing, IntelliMix Room automatically produces a single channel of conference-ready audio.
IntelliMix Room is licensed on three-year and five-year options. It offers deployments of either up to eight or 16 channels of processed audio which includes support and maintenance. Using Shure’s free Designer software, integrators can either set up rooms using Shure’s supplied templates, or easily configure their own for consistent large-scale deployments in their customers’ facilities. IntelliMix Room’s software-only approach for DSP is particularly suited to progressive systems integrators offering AV-as-a-service solutions to their end-customers.
“Shure is rising to the AV demand,” said Jim Schanz, VP, global systems sales at Shure. “The pace of corporate consults and installs is increasing by the day and integrators need a way to take the complexity out of setup and put time back on their side. Now they have a secured solution.”
