AMX Mixes It Up In Large Room Web Conferencing

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands - February 10, 2015 - At Integrated Systems Europe, AMX, a member of the HARMAN Professional family, announced its new Alero Web Conferencing Audio Mixer to bring premium conferencing experiences to more meeting spaces. The Alero ALR-AEC-8 is a dedicated microphone mixer, designed specifically for web conferencing applications in medium to large meeting rooms.

PC-based web conferences are becoming increasingly popular because of their ease of use and low cost; relative to traditional, VTC conferencing. This popularity is driving more conferences to larger rooms that can accommodate more guests. But to ensure good audio quality, larger rooms require more microphones and a mic mixer. AMX designed the Alero Mixer with support for up to eight boundary mics and automatic monitoring and adjustment of audio levels to deliver a great sounding conference. And with included line level inputs/outputs the Alero is scalable to support traditional VTC conferences as well.

The ALR-AEC-8 includes two additional features few mixers offer. A USB audio interface is included for simple, direct output to a PC to enable a Lync, Skype or other PC-based web conference. In addition, onboard web configuration makes the Alero easy to install and configure. The technical training required to set up larger mic mixers has been eliminated and just about anyone can confidently host an Alero-managed conference.

“AMX saw a real need to design a mixer that was specifically targeted for large room web conferencing,” said Shaun Robinson, AMX Vice President of Product Management. “There were plenty of great mixers out there for standard VTC conferences but none that supported easily managed web conferencing. The Alero is not only able to adjust everything on the fly but its drop dead simple to install, manage and use, something we think will be a welcome addition for mainstream users.”

The Alero Web Conferencing Audio Mixer (ALR-AEC-8) is expected to ship in the US and select markets in Q3 2015 with global availability expected Q4 2015.
