Spec Sheet

This new addition to the Microflex® Ecosystem portfolio brings a simplified deployment experience and enhanced audio performance, all packed in a familiar square as well as new round form factor that opens up more architectural possibilities.

The MXA920 introduces Automatic Coverage™ technology that no longer requires the aiming of lobes, minimizing setup time and effort. In addition to 9x9 m (30x30 ft) out-of-box room coverage, deploy up to 8 fully-adjustable coverage zones to capture only the talkers you want, in multiple areas of the room, while avoiding areas you don’t.

The microphone employs redesigned, next generation array architecture that provides enhanced directionality and more natural speech, plus onboard IntelliMix® DSP for noise- and echo-free performance.

It delivers unrivaled scalability and flexibility to address challenging user demands in applications ranging from AV conferencing to camera tracking and voice lift in premium meeting spaces.

The new Ceiling Array Microphone is available in both square and round form factors with multiple mounting options. The square form factor is available in white only, while the round form factor is available in three color options (all paintable).

At launch, the MXA920 is certified for Microsoft Teams Rooms when used with the IntelliMix® P300 Audio Conferencing Processor and Microflex™ MXN5W-C Networked Loudspeaker. Further certification testing is in progress and will be announced later.

How it works

  • Automatic CoverageTM technology captures the talkers you want to hear while avoiding sounds in other areas, without aiming pickup lobes
  • Out of the box, MXA920 covers up to a 30 by 30 foot seating area with no setup at all
  • To capture talkers only in specific locations, drag and drop up to 8 adjustable coverage areas using the built-in web interface
  • Capture simultaneous talkers in different areas at the same time
  • You can also turn Automatic Coverage technology off and use Steerable CoverageTM technology to place 8 pickup lobes with 8 individual audio outputs, plus an automix – just like an MXA910
  • Onboard IntelliMix DSP applies automatic mixing, echo cancellation, noise reduction, and automatic gain control for a pristine audio mix

Why It's Better

  • Next generation array architecture delivers enhanced low frequency directionality and the most natural speech quality
  • Advanced talker localization algorithm instantly reports the exact position of each talker for the most accurate camera tracking possible.
  • Precise coverage control provides exceptional isolation between microphone lobes and loudspeakers, guaranteeing the maximum sound level possible in voice lift and sound reinforcement applications
  • In larger spaces, Designer system configuration software helps you configure MXA920’s with other Microflex Ecosystem devices
  • Choose Teams-certified bundles with the ANIUSB-MATRIX, P300-IMX, or IntelliMix Room DSP and MXN5C networked loudspeaker

Quality that's in the details

  • Square and round form factors meet the architectural needs of today’s meeting spaces
  • White, black, and aluminum finishes to complement your interior design; all paintable for custom needs
  • Certified for use with Microsoft Teams and compatible with popular collaboration tools
  • Audio, PoE power, and control signals connect via Dante/AES67 digital audio networking over a single cable
  • Shure Audio Encryption keeps meeting content secure between the MXA920 and other Microflex ecosystem devices in the room
  • LED status bar with configurable colors and brightness
  • Command strings enable seamless integration with third-party camera and room control systems
