Chinese University of Hong Kong upgrades with Shure Microflex wireless system

Chinese University of Hong Kong [CUHK] recently upgraded the audio setup at the central conference room of its faculty of arts. It installed 31 channels of the wireless microphone system from Shure.

The Faculty opted for 31 channels of the rechargeable MXW8 Wireless Gooseneck base transmitter with 15-in Microflex Gooseneck microphones for seated meeting participants. It also opted for three additional MXW1 Bodypack transmitters, with Lavalier microphones, that provide speech reinforcement for standing presenters. The system is completed with access point transceiver, networked charging stations, and audio network interfaces for integration with third party AV equipment.

As a critical collaboration place, between the various faculty committees, the conference room was recently upgraded to replace a problematic old system.

Carl Poon, manager at AV solution provider EduServe that handled the installation, said: “The head of faculty wanted a higher quality solution to ensure that discussions and meetings could take place without interruptions. A solid acoustic environment and interference-free system were the top priorities.”

Operating in the 1.9GHz range, Microflex Wireless avoids congested spectrum and interference from dominating wireless frequencies on university campuses. The automated frequency coordination feature is particularly useful considering the large number of microphone channels used in the conference room.

Poon added: “Microflex Wireless elegantly fits into the room’s existing sound structure. It is fully compatible with the already installed, custom-programmed AMX central control system, and is also certified for use with the Polycom video conference system available in the room.”
