InfoComm 2016 Preview

It’s that time of year again! Our bags are packed, and we’re ready to descend upon the Las Vegas Convention Center for the largest gathering of AV professionals in North America: InfoComm 2016. Here’s a quick preview of all the great things you can see and do at booth C9708, where we’ll be camped out June 8 through 10.

New from Shure in AV & Conferencing Technology

Microflex® Advance™  (MXA) will be making a big splash at InfoComm this year. In addition to the demo stations that you can visit at any time, we’re hosting in-depth product demonstrations every half hour. In these sessions, you’ll get to experience the new array microphone in action, complete with a live remote demo to showcase the array’s incredible capabilities.

Microflex® Wireless (MXW) continues to be the audio tool of choice for many AV integrators and decision makers. In an effort to expand on the flexibility and scalability of this versatile system, we’ve developed a new two-position networked charging station (MXWNCS2) and two-channel access point transceiver (MXWAPT2). These extensions will allow for smaller MXW installations and add options for expanding your existing systems.

Training Sessions

Education and training are a point of focus for both InfoComm and Shure, so we are happy to be hosting several training sessions at InfoComm 2016.

On Wednesday, June 8 at 3:00 PM, take an advanced look at one of our most popular AV audio solutions in Microflex Wireless: Beyond Basics. In this seminar, attendees will go beyond learning about the components and feature sets to gain a deeper understanding of access point settings and placement, networking, and Dante™ digital audio considerations, plus how to maximize channel counts in multi-room and cross-campus applications.

At 8:00 AM on Thursday, June 9, get the latest updates on various FCC-related actions, including the Incentive Auction, and learn best practices and techniques for successful wireless microphone operation now and in the future in a session titled Wireless Microphones in the New Spectrum Landscape. To register for this seminar, click here and search for session IS46.

Also on Thursday, join Shure product managers at 3:00 PM for a session called Microflex Advance: Installation and Best Practices. In this course, go beyond the product demo as we introduce the components that comprise the Microflex Advance system, discuss key applications and room design considerations, and look at how to integrate MXA with other system components. We will discuss various mounting options and optimal locations for the microphones, how to configure microphone pattern and coverage, audio routing, and the DSP capabilities of the system.

Partnerships

Because it takes a village of systems and components working together to make great corporate AV installations run smoothly, we’ve forged important partnerships with some of the best in the biz, many of whom also are going to be exhibiting at InfoComm 2016. So, after stopping by and seeing us at booth C9708, why not visit some of our partners?

Crestron builds automation and control solutions for buildings and homes that let people control entire environments with the push of a button, integrating systems such as AV, lighting, shading, IT, security, BMS, and HVAC to provide greater comfort, convenience, and security. Our Microflex MX396 Multi-element Boundary Microphone for conference room installations acts as a premium audio front end to Crestron conferencing equipment such as the RL2. Microflex Wireless is also now officially certified. You can visit Crestron at booth C7008.

Shure is working with Polycom SoundStructure, HDX, Group Series, and Vortex Solutions to connect wireless microphones to Polycom audio and video conferencing equipment. When customers see solutions bearing the Polycom Ready badge, they know they’ve been proven to work with the world’s leading open standards-based UC&C platform. Microflex Wireless meets these standards and is branded Polycom Ready. Polycom is located at booth N2013.

Shure became part of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program earlier this year. The program joins Cisco with hardware manufacturers like Shure to deliver integrated solutions to customers. Being a Solution Partner means that we have a complementary product offering and that we work with Cisco to meet the needs of the customers we share. You can visit Cisco at booth N2104.
