Power Disconnect

Apparatuses with or without On/Off switches have power supplied to the apparatus whenever the power cord is inserted into the power source; however, the apparatus is operational only when the On/Off switch is in the On position. The power cord is the main power disconnect for all apparatuses.


The Shure MXCSIGN features a programmable, dual-sided electronic paper display. High contrast allows for maximum readability and wide viewing angle. Powered and programmable via DCS-LAN, the MXCSIGN can be placed on the table for temporary events, or mounted for permanent installations.


  • Displays important information in a conference setting, such as full name or country of origin
  • Electronic paper display provides clear, legible text regardless of viewing-angle or excess sunlight
  • Included accessory kit allows multiple mounting options
  • Writeable using DCS-LAN, compatible with SW6000 advanced meeting management software
  • No power required to display content after programming the unit
  • Integrates with Shure MXC conferencing systems
  • Two-sided display can communicate different content to the audience and participant

Included Components

  • Mounting kit - bracket, screw, wing nut (2 of each)
  • Tabletop installation template

MXCSIGN Assembly


Install the Shure MXCSIGN based on your furniture limitations and installation requirements. There are several installation options:

Flush-Mount or Tabletop

For permanent installations, use the included template to create the necessary cutouts in the tabletop. Flush-mounting conceals the entire base and all cabling inside the table cutout, while tabletop mounting runs cables along the table and uses the MXCSIGN itself to conceal them, requiring less invasive modification to the mounting surface.

Flush-Mount Align mounting brackets across the cutout underneath the table. Secure the brackets and MXCSIGN with the included screws and wing nuts.
Tabletop Either drill holes for the screws and install using the mounting brackets, or use two size 4 screws and slot them into the "keyhole" mounts on the bottom of the base.

Portable (No Drilling)

Avoid modifying the table surface by simply placing the MXCSIGN on the table. The stand cover includes a cable exit to route the DCS-LAN cables out both sides of the unit, and can be removed for permanent mounting.

To remove the stand cover, grasp the display in one hand and press firmly on the lip of the stand cover until it detaches. To replace the cover, slide it back over the base and press upward until it clicks into place.

Power Consumption and Layout Best Practices

MXCSIGN can be connected to a DCS-LAN chain with power and data passed shared with other signs or any available Microflex® Complete conference units connected to the same chain.

When connecting units to the DCS-LAN chain, power and data come OUT of the CCU to the IN port on the first device in the chain, OUT of that unit, IN to the next, and so on.

Refer to the online DCS-LAN calculator tool to determine how many MXCSIGN and MXC conference units can be connected, based on cable topology.

Writing to MXCSIGN

Content persists on the MXCSIGN display until it is overwritten with new content or reset to factory settings. Update displays as a group using the DCS-LAN connection. Connecting to the MXC system will also allow you to automate the content using information from SW6000.

Prerequisites for DCS-LAN Integration

Power Supply Make sure that your system has sufficient power available for writing to the MXCSIGN. See the Power Consumption topic for installation best practices.
DIS-CCU Firmware 8.6.0 or higher
SW6000 Version 6.10 or higher

Name Sign Setup (CCU Integration)

The CCU can write to any MXCSIGN units connected to the same wired network. From the CCU web interface, go to Devices > Name sign setup.

  • The Content selection options determine what information is shown on the MXCSIGN:
    Participant names The MXCSIGN displays the content for the associated seat number configured in the Participant setup screen. Consequently, when NFC cards are in use, the participant information from the card is used.
    Text lines Content is pulled from the Text, first line and Text, second line fields.

    Note: When a number is assigned under Seat #: Dual B, the first line of text corresponds to the participant in Seat A, the second line corresponds to the participant in Seat B.

    Identify The serial number and assigned seat number (if any) is displayed.
    Blank All information is removed from the MXCSIGN.
  • Font size change defaults to 0, which represents the default font size for the assigned template. Fonts can be increased or decreased, with values ranging from 190 to -70.
  • Apply content pushes the selected information to the connected MXCSIGN units
  • Delete all text lines clears the values in the text line fields

Display Templates

Information sent to the MXCSIGN from the CCU uses predefined templates depending on what fields are populated:

Active Content Seat #: Single / Dual A Seat #: Dual B Text, first line Text, second line Template
Participant names X
Text lines X X

SW6000 Integration

SW6000 conference management software enables comprehensive control and management of conferences using MXC Conference System hardware. The MXCSIGN integrates natively with the software and allows for dynamic updating of the display, according to properties from the software database.
