Biamp Systems and Shure Incorporated recently announced “integrated compatibility between Biamp Tesira audio processors and software and Shure Microflex Advance array microphones with Steerable Coverage,” according to a joint press release.

With the release of Biamp’s new Tesira software and hardware at ISE in February, “it will be possible to interact with the Dante-enabled Shure MXA910 ceiling array microphone and control signal levels within the Tesira software,” according to the announcement from Biamp and Shure.

“This will enable system integrators to deliver flexible, fully-digital audio solutions that meet the complex needs of their clients while reducing installation and setup time.”

Here’s more about Biamp Tesira’s compatibility with Shure’s MXA910 ceiling array microphone:

“We’re excited to come together with an industry leader like Shure in an effort to streamline the integration of our products,” says Graeme Harrison, executive vice president of marketing for Biamp Systems. “Both companies value customer feedback and leverage it in future product development. Adding Shure microphone-specific software blocks to Tesira’s cutting-edge software made sense; it allows system designers to easily incorporate the power of Shure mics with the power of Tesira. Other developments in this launch will bring this capability to the whole range of Tesira processors, and we will add additional functionality in future releases.”

“Interoperability between the MXA910 ceiling array microphone and Tesira processors will make it easier for system integrators to take advantage of its class-leading voice pickup and steerable coverage in a wide assortment of meeting room applications,” says Chad Wiggins, senior director for networked systems at Shure. “Together, they deliver a more powerful yet more streamlined solution, with centralized control, simpler installation, and fewer components.”

Tesira’s software is unique in that it enables system designers to build complete AV solutions using features like its intuitive drag-and-drop interface for a variety of software blocks. The Tesira software enables designers to plan a completely integrated AV solution, including yet-to-be-built future phases.
