MXL recently showed a number of microphone products at industry trade shows, including the new MXL conferencing microphones that were co-developed with the conferencing company Zoom.
Zoom Room-compatible conferencing microphones from MXL include the USB-powered AC-360-Z tabletop model and the AC-404-Z.
Compatible with any Zoom Rooms and Zoom-enabled conference rooms, the AC-360-Z works with any Apple or PC computer via simple plug-and-play connections.
Eliminating the need for any type of driver, the MXL AC-360-Z can be configured with options to run each quadrant of the microphone independently. MXL says that integrators can link as many as three microphones to cover a range of room sizes.

MXL’s AC-404-Z Installation Kit for Zoom Rooms and the AC-404-LED USB Boundary Microphone provide integrators with more system options to support the installation of conferencing systems into Zoom Rooms, huddle rooms and boardrooms.
The AC-404-Z captures 180-degrees of audio in a 25-foot radius, and it connects via USB. This product incorporates three internal mic capsules, along with an all-metal construction and a low-profile design.
Providing more system setup flexibility, MXL explains the LED version microphone is a product that can be used to update the “look and feel” of a huddle room, conference room and boardroom.
MXL points out the AC-404-LED features a wide pickup pattern and provides a 25-foot range.
The AC-404-LED also connects via USB, and the company adds the glowing base can be personalized with eight preset color modes to match a room environment, computers and company logos.
