Jands AV Conferencing Solutions

Corporate culture is changing. From reducing expenditure on work-related travel to increasing productivity and efficiency through agile working, video conferencing has become a prominent consideration in all organisations’ collaboration framework – and it’s a trend that is not going to slow anytime soon.

Shure Microflex® Advance™ MXA910 Ceiling Array Product Overview The Microflex® Advance™ MXA910 Ceiling Array is a premium networked array microphone for AV Conferencing that captures best-in-class audio from above the meeting space with Shure proprietary Steerable Coverage™ technology and an intuitive user interface that allows for simple configuration of presets, templates and polar patterns.

This has led to a significant uptake of Video Conferencing technologies. Likewise, Australian businesses are dealing with more interstate and international suppliers, partners and customers than ever before - the need for efficient AV Conferencing has never been so great.

Ensuring adequate communications between every facet of your company is essential to maintaining and growing a successful business. Video quality is an important factor in a conferencing setup but there is nothing more important than audio. After all, interpretive dance may not be the best way to report sales data.

Proper video conferencing is all about having the right equipment, and thankfully, Shure and Biamp are leading the way in providing the best audio solutions for your corporate AV Conferencing needs.

Huddle Spaces

The trend of open office environments shows no sign of slowing. Dozens of workers share an open floor plan without traditional closed offices or cubicles. However, everyone still needs a private space to conduct meetings and conference calls without disturbing their colleagues. Traditional conference rooms are too large and formal for everyday collaboration needs. Huddle spaces are a natural complement to this growing need and they can be designed in varying formats, from open plan “spaces” right through to completely closed and sound isolated rooms. 

  • Biamp’s Devio® comes packed with conferencing technology out of the box. Its beamforming microphone is suitable for use in ambient noise controlled and fixed format huddle spaces that require the ability to capture audio throughout the room as people sit or move about to engage with smart boards. It has three 120-degree zones, providing full 360-degree coverage of the meeting space. Devio also allows a user to bring their preferred device into the huddle room, plug into Devio with a single USB cable, and place a soft codec call right from their laptop.
  • The MXA310 Table Array premium networked array microphone paired with a P300 IntelliMix Audio Conferencing Processor from Shure allows you to capture high quality audio and provide flexibility in varying AV Conferencing environments. Within the onboard Shure DSP Utilities, Shure’s proprietary Steerable Coverage™ technology deploys up to four discrete simultaneous coverage zones around a table and utilises an innovative “toroid” ring-shaped pattern to reject unwanted artifacts from overhead such as HVAC or projector fans.

Boardroom or Small Meeting Room

Boardroom AV Conferencing often happens in spaces with premium visual aesthetics but uncontrollable poor audio quality. Architects take great pride in designing a boardroom space with premium visual aesthetics, leaving audio quality concerns to the AV integrator. What do you do in these situations when you need to install an AV Conferencing Solution without compromising room aesthetics?

  • Shure’s MXA910 Ceiling Array Microphone and P300 IntelliMix Audio Conferencing Processor deliver natural voice reproduction and speech intelligibility for AV conferencing. The MXA910 offers a versatile and elegant AV Conferencing solution that discreetly and precisely captures the richness of the human voice, featuring proprietary Steerable Coverage™ technology to accurately capture sound sources from any location in a meeting room. Paired with an MXA910, the P300 DSP offers pre-defined templates that enable set up literally in seconds, and an unobtrusive form factor for discreet installations. Versatile features and connectivity options provide freedom of choice when joining a room video system, soft codec, or connecting laptops and mobile devices.

For spaces that don’t require discreet microphones, or you are able to place a microphone on the table top, Biamp’s solutions offer a cost-effective way to achieve AV Conferencing functionality.

  • The Biamp Tesira TCM-1 is an AVB ceiling microphone comprised of a pendant microphone and plenum box. Each microphone includes Beamtracking™ technology with three 120-degree zones, providing full 360-degree coverage of the meeting space. Together with the TesiraFORTÉ DSP from Biamp, which features include Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) technology, as well as VoIP integration, you can achieve excellent call quality in the boardroom.

Large Conference or Multi-Purpose Rooms

As businesses evolve, single-use spaces are falling out of favour. Instead, organisations are choosing multi-use spaces that can be combined and configured to suit a wide range of activities. Examples include hotels, convention centres, ballrooms and rooms that can be combined with adjacent rooms or divided using floating walls to accommodate audiences of different sizes. Multi-use spaces must be flexible in terms of use and capacity, as well as room setup.

In spaces such as these you no longer need to yell into a phone at the centre of the table to be heard. With a wide range of conferencing solutions combining Shure microphones and a Biamp DSP, you can now run productive meetings with excellent call quality.

  • Featuring Steerable Coverage of up to 8 separate lobes to capture sound sources from above more accurately than any other product, Shure’s MXA910 is a premium networked array microphone that captures best-in-class audio in varying AV Conferencing environments.
  • Compatibility can be a beautiful thing — especially when they combine powerful tools like Biamp’s TesiraFORTÉ DAN VT and the MXA910 ceiling array microphone from Shure. Ethernet connectivity between TesiraFORTÉ and the Shure microphone makes conferencing installations easy. The TesiraFORTÉ DSP includes Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) technology, as well as VoIP integration, bringing excellent call quality to any meeting space.

It takes more than just product from market leading manufacturers to deliver a great result. At Jands, we are proud of the value-add services we provide, including training, system design, product service and support.
