The What: A new version of Shure's MXA910 Ceiling Array Microphone with Intellimix DSP is now available for pre-order, with delivery planned to start in December 2019. This new MXA910 variant includes the same technology and performance as all prior versions.
The What Else: Available in white—but paintable for a variety of design aesthetics—the MXA910W-A features subtle and visually attractive adjustments to the form factor of its chassis design to ensure it is compliant with recent Court requirements.
Additionally, Shure says it will continue to offer uninterrupted global availability of the MXA910 60cm version. Customers can contact Shure through sales managers or at Shure.com for a list of third-party mounting options that allow for the 60cm version to be surface-mounted to suspended ceilings in legally compliant manners.
“We’d like to thank our channel partners and end-customers for their continued support for Shure and our MXA910 line of products,” said Jim Schanz, VP global integrated systems sales, Shure. “We know that the Court’s preliminary injunction impacted installation of the prior version in a flush-mounted drop ceiling arrangement and may have affected some of our partners’ and customers’ projects. We are confident this new version is compliant with the Court’s rulings and provides an attractive alternative to meet customer needs. Our priority remains serving our customers with an uninterrupted supply of the best-in-class products they have come to expect from us.”
The Bottom Line: This new mounting option joins a wide range of other mounting options including suspension mount, VESA pole-mount, and hard ceiling mount, so consultants and integrators have a range of solutions compatible with any meeting room. Pre-orders for the MXA910W-A can be placed by contacting Shure sales managers directly.
