The Regional Assembly of Murcia’s technical department, system integrator Castellini Audiovisuales, and Shure Distribution partner EarPro all worked together to ensure social distancing requirements are met in the region’s autonomous Parliament – with Shure’s Microflex Complete Wireless (MXCW) system the preferred choice for conferencing. In light of the recent pandemic and guidelines imposed by the country’s health authorities, the Assembly decided to adapt the Patio de los Ayuntamientos building for use with plenary sessions and important debates.
The MXCW installation consisted of 30 units, and battery efficiency and effectiveness was catered for by the inclusion of an SB930 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, powering conference units and maintaining performance throughout use. The system also includes an AES-128 encrypted audio signal, for security and audio privacy, along with a voting function with different configurations allowing external mobile devices to be connected into the unit. Another feature of MXCW is its capacity to work with up to 8 channels of simultaneous interpretation – a must-have requirement for the Assembly.
The MXCW640 Wireless Conference Unit can be configured into ‘chairman,’ ‘delegate,’ ‘dual delegate,’ or ‘interpreter’ roles, and is equipped with a 4.3inch colour touch screen. There are different gooseneck microphone options available with three-colour LED, in different lengths and with interchangeable cartridges.
Balanced analogue audio input and output XLR connectors are included within the MXCWAPT access point, along with 10 inputs and 10 outputs over a Dante Audio Network, completely configurable due to their internal matrix and connection by a single Ethernet cable that processes the control, audio and power supply.
“The MXCW system is the result of the ongoing evolution in radio transmission of audio signals by Shure, one of the world’s leading companies in wireless microphones,” explained José Moreno, Install Key Account Manager at EARPRO. “After positioning itself over the last few years as a standard in broadcast environments and live events, the MXCW delegate microphone system is also consolidating its position as one of the leading wireless systems for debates and conferences.”
With the MXCW system now in place, all members of the Assembly can continue their activities safely and attend the plenary sessions in person.
