Today, at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando, Shure announced that the High Density Mode for its line of Microflex™ Wireless system conferencing microphones is now shipping. Originally launched in 2013, the versatile and scalable Microflex Wireless systems’ range of wireless microphones and supporting hardware have become the industry go-to solution for managed AV conferencing in large corporate boardrooms, multi-room environments, and networked campuses. The firmware version 5.1.23 update for Microflex Wireless includes High Density mode, which enables users to operate twice as many microphones simultaneously.
The firmware update (version 5.1.23) is backward compatible and will work with all existing Microflex Wireless hardware. In High Density mode, the maximum channel count for users in Asia will increase from 80 to 160 channels. To fit twice as many channels into the same amount of spectrum, High Density mode uses a modified transmission scheme that also increases battery life. There is no difference in wireless range.

In the Asia Pacific region, Microflex Wireless is currently available in all countries except China, South Korea, Philippines, and Thailand, as the system uses DECT spectrum which may not be used for microphones in the affected countries.
