BEAVERTON, OR and NILES, IL — Biamp Systems and Shure announce integrated compatibility between Biamp Tesira audio processors and software and Shure Microflex Advance array microphones with Steerable Coverage. With the release of Biamp's new Tesira software and hardware in February 2017, it will be possible to interact with the Dante-enabled Shure MXA910 ceiling array microphone and control signal levels within the Tesira software. This will enable system integrators to deliver digital audio solutions while reducing installation and setup time.

Biamp Systems, a provider of innovative, networked media systems and Shure Incorporated, a manufacturer of networked microphones, today announced integrated compatibility between Biamp Tesira audio processors and software and Shure Microflex Advance array microphones with Steerable Coverage. 


With the release of Biamp's new Tesira software and hardware at ISE in February 2017, it will be possible to interact with the Dante-enabled Shure MXA910 ceiling array microphone and control signal levels within the Tesira software. 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.

"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."

Chad Wiggins, senior director for networked systems at Shure, says, "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. Together, they deliver a more powerful yet more streamlined solution, with centralized control, simpler installation and fewer components."

Tesira's software 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.
