Shure Releases New Microflex A400MB Touch-Sensitive Mute Button

by | Aug 23, 2021 | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Shure has introduced the Microflex A400MB, a new touch-sensitive mute button accessory that brings audio mute functionality to Microflex MX395-LED boundary microphones as well as MX405, MX410, and MX415 modular gooseneck microphones.

The A400MB installs like a washer between the microphone body and the table or lectern surface, hiding the circuitry underneath the surface. The mute function is programmed with onboard switches to provide added flexibility and can be configured as momentary (push-to-talk or push-to-mute) or toggled (push-on, push-off). The A400MB includes local mode as well as remote mode.

“With the rapid adoption of collaboration technologies in a wide variety of environments, the A400MB adds convenient, cost-effective local and remote mute functionality without the hassle,” says Doug Daube, Category Director, Microphone Systems at Shure.

The A400MB can be customized to address a variety of room types and configurations. If A400MB mute buttons are installed with multiple microphones on a table, pushing any mute button can mute all the mics simultaneously, and all microphone LEDs can also change color to show that the outgoing audio has been muted.

When used with Shure ANI4IN-BLOCK or ANI22-BLOCK audio network interfaces and the IntelliMix P300 audio conferencing processor, the mute and LED behavior is synchronized to simultaneously mute them with Microsoft Teams and Zoom videoconferencing platforms. This means the user’s mute status is instantly visible to all meeting participants, whether in the same room or joining from thousands of miles away.
