CHICAGO —Shure IntelliMix Room® is the world’s first software-based digital signal processing (DSP) for AV conferencing to achieve official certification for Microsoft Teams when installed on the Crestron UC-C100-T Flex Video Conference System Integrator Kit. Now users can deploy end-to-end certified solutions for Teams systems without the need for a separate DSP device. This is key because DSP is valuable in ensuring that meeting room audio sounds intelligible and natural for all meeting participants.
Shure’s collaboration with Crestron helped enable IntelliMix Room software to achieve this industry first certification. Crestron has been a Microsoft partner for more than 15 years and AV integrators rely on the UC-C100-T Crestron Flex Integrator Kit to bring Microsoft Teams Rooms into custom spaces. The Crestron Flex series provides users with the essential components needed to build a fully customized video conferencing space, whether for a company-wide annual meeting in the auditorium, for sharing content in the boardroom, or for connecting stakeholders around the world.
“Crestron is the leader in enabling customizable conference rooms with the award-winning Flex-series solutions. Now, with the integration of Shure’s IntelliMix Room software DSP, the entire experience is further enhanced by providing an end-to-end Microsoft Teams Certified solution that significantly simplifies the deployment,” said Andrew Ludke, Director of Product Management at Crestron. “With Crestron Flex being a true ‘technology platform,’ integrating Shure’s Microflex® Advance™ Array Microphones and IntelliMix Room DSP with custom Crestron Flex solutions yields stunning audio quality in a truly customizable configuration,” he continued.
A key component of Shure Microflex Ecosystem solutions, IntelliMix Room algorithms are specifically designed to optimize performance of Shure’s range of premium conferencing microphones. IntelliMix Room’s patent-pending technology helps IT professionals and business executives achieve better audio in meetings with acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), noise reduction, and automatic mixing technology, resulting in more consistent room audio and a simplified approach to managing multiple rooms.
With no custom programming needed, a variety of preset system configurations and an easy-to-use “Optimize” function within the free Designer application, Microflex Ecosystem solutions with IntelliMix Room software make deploying Teams-Certified spaces of all shapes, types, and sizes more efficient than ever.
“IntelliMix Room is designed with the end user in mind to help improve connectivity, audio clarity, and quality with consistent results. Shure is constantly taking a forward-thinking approach to simplifying audio, from microphones to DSP to speakers; and doing it without compromise,” said Paul Gunia Director of Technology Partnerships at Shure. “We are excited to bring our highly desired IntelliMix Room product to market with the official backing of two industry titans in Microsoft and Crestron.”
Available through several licensing options, IntelliMix Room software offers flexibility as a long-term investment over the lifecycle of multiple meeting spaces. It can be more cost-effective than the leading hardware-based audio DSPs.
