Shure has unveiled its all-new Microflex Wireless neXt 2 (MXW neXt 2), with plans to debut the solution at ISE 2024. The latest addition to the Microflex Ecosystem 2 is a flexible, two-channel wireless system that provides a simple, all-in-one audio solution for various locations and hybrid scenarios.
According to the company, MXW neXt 2 is a perfect new option for people seeking increased meeting equity and clear sound reinforcement in videoconferencing and hybrid presentations in classrooms and commercial settings.
Today, AV/IT workers in corporate and higher education contexts want more adaptable solutions for teaching, conference areas, and other hybrid scenarios. MXW neXt 2 will help them address their present difficulties by streamlining processes and providing great Microflex audio performance at an affordable price, all in a user-friendly and accessible form factor.
Integrators and audio experts in today’s business and educational contexts want user-friendly, reliable, high-quality audio solutions for anything from tiny conference rooms to enormous auditoriums.
Microflex Wireless neXt 2 has a unique mix of powerful DSP capabilities and extensive audio I/O connectors, such as USB, Dante networked audio, and analog audio, to address such requirements. It couples mics at the press of a button and takes only a few minutes to set up.
These capabilities ease difficult installation operations and provide excellent audio out of the box. Microflex Wireless neXt 2 delivers high-quality audio in areas of all sizes with only two microphones and smoothly links to video conferencing systems for distant presenters.
It also has a redesigned microphone design with improved security, a wider dynamic range, and a battery life of up to 28 hours for all-day use.
MXW neXt 2 provides swift and easy room integration with an all-in-one base device that includes an APT/charger and sophisticated onboard DSP, decreasing the required hardware. It may be network-installed or utilized as a standalone system, thanks to its extensive collection of audio connectors, which include Dante, Analogue, and USB.
MXW neXt 2 comes in three revised wireless microphone form factors, each featuring an LCD high-resolution matrix display to monitor battery life and connection quality.
The MXW1X Bodypack, MXW2X Handheld, and MXW6X Boundary are pre-configured to handle numerous applications and may all be charged from the same base.
With an enhanced battery run time of 17 hours for bodypack and boundary microphones and 28 hours for handheld microphones, integrators can set up a room confidently, knowing that it will be supplied with dependable, outstanding audio for usage during extended lectures and all-day workshops.
The new Microflex Wireless neXt 2 is ideal for hybrid use cases that require audio capture of participants in the room, sound reinforcement of a presenter, and far-end audio from remote presenters in a live setting or just for recording. This unique power makes it easier to achieve actual meeting and learning equity.
Recognizing the need for secrecy in business environments, MXW neXt 2 incorporates Shure Audio Encryption, which is based on the AES-256 algorithm and provides a strong and secure audio stream. The AES-256 encryption technology has been accepted as one of the most secure network protection methods, and all devices employ a user-configured passcode.
This built-in security protects audio material across all Microflex Wireless devices in the space, offering both end users and integrators peace of mind. MXW neXt 2 will be exhibited at ISE 2024 (January 30-February 2), and the MXW neXt 2 will become available in April 2024!
