MXA910 Ceiling Array ideal for classrooms includes state-of-the-art array microphone technology with Shure IntelliMix DSP — comprising Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Noise Reduction, and Automatic Mixing — for exceptional, unprecedented control. The new patent-pending Autofocus™ Technology continually fine tunes the position of each lobe in real time, for consistent sound when participants lean back in their chairs or stand up. It also provides “voice lift” technology, which restores the natural speech level of the talker evenly throughout the room, just enough so audience members can hear each other clearly without straining.
MXA710 Linear Array works best in all corporate environments and is designed for high-quality audio capture. Whether it’s under or next to a wall-mounted display, suspended from the ceiling or flush mounted in a table, the low-profile form factor of the MXA710 subtly blends into any meeting room aesthetic without sacrificing audio quality. Available in two lengths and three colors, it is an ideal alternative for spaces where flexible mounting options are required.
