Shure have recently added to their SCM automatic mixer range with the inclusion of the SCM820 digital intelimix automatic mixer. Working from the same intelimix principles of the original SCM series, the Shure SCM820 provides powerful DSP resources to provide complete control for all 8 microphone channels available. The mixer provides 5 mix modes include three factory presets (Classic, Smooth and Extreme) to provide a simple starting block which can provide settings for most applications. Along with these presets, a custom user defined preset can be set as well as the manual mode which deactivates the intelimix function, turning the SCM820 in to a standard mixer.
Each microphone channel and mix bus provides additional functions such as parametric EQ, high and low cut filters and limiters all of which are available to access via a browser based GUI. The processors are also able to be controlled by third-party room control systems making them easily integrated into an existing system providing a high quality, flexible automixer.
The SCM820 provides the user with the ability to link up to 12 units, providing a total of 96 channels of audio which can all operate under shared intelimix settings. These linked systems can have custom groups within the linked systems and are created and managed by the GUI.
The Shure SCM820 provide front panel encoders for control of individual channel and mix levels with an LED ring to provide instant user feedback. There are also a few options of connector types, depending on the application, as well as the option to include a Dante network card for operation with other Dante enabled devices.
