QSC and Shure have announced an expanded level of integration between Shure Microflex Advance & Microflex Wireless microphones and the entire QSC Q-Sys platform. The partnership includes the release of new control plug-ins for the Shure MXA910 Ceiling Array Microphone and Microflex Wireless microphone systems. The latest Q-Sys Designer Software v5.3 update enables a multitude of audio connectivity options including Dante, analogue audio, and AES67.
The Shure MXA910 Control plug-in was co-developed by Shure and it allows a myriad of audio control, preset recall, and monitoring functions on the MXA910 from the Q-Sys platform using Q-Sys peripherals and touchscreen controller. Because the MXA910 control plug-in is decoupled from the audio integration method in Q-SYS, it lets integrators use the plug-in for control while being able to choose between different audio transport methods. The use of AES67 as the audio integration method means every Q-Sys Core processor can be integrated with the MXA910 without additional hardware bridging devices or software licences.
QSC and Shure have also developed a setup guide which provides step-by-step instructions on how to integrate the MXA910 with Q-Sys using AES67 for networked audio streaming and the built-in plug-in for control and monitoring of the MXA910 from Q-Sys.
