Signal Flow and Routing

Setting up the Audio Network

Shure networked conferencing systems are comprised of Microflex Advance microphones and network interfaces, which operate entirely on a Dante network. Additional hardware, including network switches, computers, loudspeakers, and audio processors are described in the hardware component index.

Shure components shown in this diagram:

Microflex Advance Microphones

The MXA910 and MXA310 are equipped with Dante outputs, and connect directly to a network switch.

Audio Network Interfaces

The interfaces are used to connect analog devices such as loudspeakers and analog microphones to the network.

ANI4IN: Converts 4 analog signals (separate XLR and block connector models available) into Dante digital audio signals.

ANI4OUT: Converts 4 channels of Dante audio from the network into analog signals.

This diagram shows the entire signal path through a networked conference system. Signals from the near end and far end are exchanged through an audio processor connected to a phone system, or through a computer connected to the internet. Analog microphones connect to the network through the Shure ANI4IN, while loudspeakers connect through the Shure ANI4OUT.

This diagram shows Microflex Advance components in context, with two rooms communicating through video codecs.

Controlling Hardware and Audio Over the Network

Audio and hardware settings are managed through a computer connected to the same network.

Shure Hardware and Audio

Each Microflex Advance component has a web application which provides mixing and configuration tools to optimize sound quality.

Expanded Control for Analog Devices

Analog devices that are connected to the network through a Shure network interface (ANI4IN/ANI4OUT) benefit from additional remote control: Volume levels, equalization, and signal routing are managed through the web application. For example, adjusting loudspeaker volume or muting a wired microphone, which would normally be done from the hardware, can now be controlled remotely over the network.

Dante Signal Routing

Signal routing between devices is managed through Dante Controller software, provided by Audinate™.

Connections and Signal Flow

① MX396 (Dual-element)

In addition to running the audio signals, this boundary microphone features three additional wire leads for logic connections. This allows the switch on the microphone to send a logic mute signal to other equipment on the network, and to receive a logic LED control signal.

② MX392

In addition to running the audio signal, this boundary microphone features three additional wire leads for logic connections. This allows the switch on the microphone to send a logic mute signal to other equipment on the network, and to receive a logic LED control signal.

③ ULX-D Receiver

Wireless microphones connect to the network interface through the balanced analog outputs on the receiver.

④ Network Switch

Provides connectivity between the Dante audio network and the computer that controls signal processing and routing.

⑤ Computer

A computer or tablet running the web application provides independent gain control for each connected device.

Input: Analog (4 XLR or Block Connectors)

Each Audio Network Interface has 4 analog inputs with variable analog gain for line, auxiliary, and microphone-level signals. Examples of devices to connect to the network with the Audio Network Interface:

  • Wireless microphone systems
  • Wired installed microphones (logic functions supported by block connector model)
  • Computers or mobile devices used for presentations
  • Other playback devices

Output: Dante Digital Audio

Connect the Dante output to a network switch with a network cable. A single network cable delivers all 4 channels of audio onto the network, and carries Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power the device. Use Dante Controller to route audio channels from the Audio Network Interface to the appropriate network destination. Any of the signals may be routed to multiple destinations, to provide local reinforcement while simultaneously delivering audio to the far end.

Summing

The Audio Network Interface provides channel summing to combine input signals and send them over a single Dante channel. This makes it possible to send all channels to a device with a limited amount of Dante receiver channels. Mixer functionality does not change; audio channels are simply sent as one combined signal.

Note: When summing is enabled, a limiter is activated to prevent signal overloading. The limiter never applies to the direct outputs, and only affects the summed signal.

To enable, select one of the summing options in the toolbar at the top of the mixer in the channels tab.

Example Scenario

A common application that requires summing is a video conference where there are multiple microphones. When a device (a computer running conferencing software and Dante Virtual Soundcard, for example) only supports 1 or 2 Dante receiver channels, the Audio Network Interface combines the input signals to transmit as a single Dante channel.

① Summed analog audio channels

When the 4 analog audio channels are summed, each of the Dante transmit channels includes all of the input signals.

② Single Dante audio channel

One Dante signal is sent over the network, which contains all 4 summed channels.

③ Connection to computer

A computer that is running limited number of Dante channels with Dante Virtual Soundcard, receives all audio on a single channel. This audio is sent to the far end.

Levels and Metering

Adjusting Input Levels

Before you begin, verify that levels from the analog devices with adjustable output levels are operating at nominal levels.

The analog gain adjusts the level of the audio signal before it is converted from analog to digital. It is adjustable in 3 dB increments, with up to 51 dB total gain.

  1. Set the Metering to Pre-fader in the toolbar at the top of the workspace to monitor analog signal levels
  2. Select the analog gain value to open the fader
  3. Match the analog gain setting to the incoming signal level. Use the gain range markers on the fader to apply the appropriate amount of gain:
    Source Level Gain Range
    Line (+4 dBu) 0 to +9 dB
    Auxiliary (-10 dBV) +9 to +21 dB
    Microphone (varies) +21 to +51 dB
  4. The meters should peak between -18 and -9 dB.

    Note: Leaving some additional headroom is a recommended to prevent clipping if mobile devices will be plugged into particular channels.

Adjusting Output Levels

Output levels are controlled by the Digital Gain (dB) fader. Always adjust the input gain (analog) before the output gain (digital). In most cases, setting the analog gain correctly results in an appropriate output level. Sources that have a quiet signal, such as a microphone with low sensitivity, may need someDigital Gain (dB) applied. If adjustments to the Digital Gain (dB) fader are required, follow these steps:

  1. Set the Metering to Post-fader in the toolbar at the top of the workspace.
  2. Adjust theDigital Gain (dB) fader as needed.
  3. If using summing, use the Digital Gain (dB) faders to mix the channel levels.

Metering Options (Pre-fader and Post-fader)

There are two modes for monitoring, for input and output signals to be monitored separately.

Pre-Fader (Analog Input Level)

Pre-fader metering displays the signal level before it reaches the digital gain fader, so that input signal levels can be optimized for each channel. Analog gain adjustments affect the meter when set to pre-fader, but the digital gain adjustments do not.

Important: If the incoming signal is adjustable (wireless microphone systems, for example), make sure it is at the nominal level before adjusting the analog gain on the Audio Network Interface.

Post-Fader (Digital Output Level)

Post-fader metering displays the signal level at the very end of the signal chain, which includes both the analog and digital gain. Use this setting to meter the levels that are being sent over the Dante network.

Logic and Control Systems

Logic Applications

The block connecter model variation (ANI4IN-BLOCK) features three logic signal connections. Logic signals are converted into Ethernet command strings and sent and received by any device (such as an echo canceller or control system) that supports Ethernet command strings.

In this diagram, Shure MX392 and MX396 Microflex® microphones are connected the audio network interface. The mute button on each microphone sends a logic signal (switch) to mute other audio equipment. The microphones receive logic signals (LED) so that the microphone LED behavior reflects the state of the entire audio system.

ANI4IN MicroflexAdvance™ Command Strings

This document can also be found at: http://shure.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6061

The device is connected via Ethernet to a control system, such as AMX, Crestron or Extron.

Connection: Ethernet (TCP/IP; select “Client” in the AMX/Crestron program)

Port: 2202

Conventions

The device has 4 types of strings:

GET

Finds the status of a parameter. After the AMX/Crestron sends a GET command, the ANI4IN responds with a REPORT string

SET

Changes the status of a parameter. After the AMX/Crestron sends a SET command, the ANI4IN will respond with a REPORT string to indicate the new value of the parameter.

REP

When the ANI4IN receives a GET or SET command, it will reply with a REPORT command to indicate the status of the parameter. REPORT is also sent by the ANI4IN when a parameter is changed on the ANI4IN or through the GUI.

SAMPLE

Used for metering audio levels.

All messages sent and received are ASCII. Note that the level indicators and gain indicators are also in ASCII

Most parameters will send a REPORT command when they change. Thus, it is not necessary to constantly query parameters. The ANI4IN will send a REPORT command when any of these parameters change.

For each device, there is a limit of two transmit flows and two receive flows. A single flow consists of up to four channels, through either a unicast or multicast transmission.

  • A unicast flow is a point-to-point connection between two devices, supporting up to four channels per flow.
  • A multicast flow is a one-to-many transmission, which supports sending up to four channels to multiple receiving devices across the network.

Shure Device Applications

Each Shure device can connect with up to two Dante devices.

The Shure MXA310 and ANI4IN support multicast transmission. This means that flows can transmit to multiple devices -- as many as the network can support. If using unicast flows, each Shure device can connect with up to two Dante receiver devices.

The Shure ANI4OUT connects with up to two Dante transmitter devices.

QoS (Quality of Service) Settings

QoS settings assign priorities to specific data packets on the network, ensuring reliable audio delivery on larger networks with heavy traffic. This feature is available on most managed network switches. Although not required, assigning QoS settings is recommended.

Note: Coordinate changes with the network administrator to avoid disrupting service.

To assign QoS values, open the switch interface and use the following table to assign Dante-associated queue values.

  • Assign the highest possible value (shown as 4 in this example) for time-critical PTP events
  • Use descending priority values for each remaining packet.

Dante QoS Priority Values

Priority Usage DSCP Label Hex Decimal Binary
High (4) Time-critical PTP events CS7 0x38 56 111000
Medium (3) Audio, PTP EF 0x2E 46 101110
Low (2) (reserved) CS1 0x08 8 001000
None (1) Other traffic BestEffort 0x00 0 000000

Note: Switch management may vary by manufacturer and switch type. Consult the manufacturer's product guide for specific configuration details.
