Shure has released the IntelliMix Room Denoiser, a new artificial intelligence-powered solution designed to eliminate random noises that disrupt meetings.
According to Shure, this AI Denoiser is included with the IntelliMix Room RSP software version 3.1 and above. It is designed to eliminate more noise and filter noise better than traditional noise reducers embedded in videoconferencing applications.
According to Shure, those algorithms can garble a speaker’s voice while trying to remove the noise and distort the sound of other audio program material.
The IntelliMix Room Denoiser can remove several types of noise coming from pen clicking, keyboards, food wrappers, silverware and doors.
The company says the Denoiser processing block words on the microphone channels while allowing presentation playback, PC audio playback and other inputs with program material to pass unaltered.
Shure says the Denoiser intensity can be set to low, medium or high.
The High setting removes as much of the noise as possible. But in some cases, it may be confusing for participants on a video call to see things happening and not hear them; they may even think the audio has dropped out. To offset this, the Low setting preserves a small amount of the noise to prevent the audio from sounding unnatural.
The company advises to user the Denoiser and Noise Reduction tool together to control both random and constant noise.
