The Converge 560 conferencing systems deliver optimum audio performance and configuration flexibility for medium-sized rooms requiring up to nine microphones, all at a price point hundreds or even thousands of dollars below competitive offerings.
The systems feature innovative microphone distribution boxes that deliver significant cost savings and flexibility for users: * Converge 560 allow customers to connect their preferred microphones, such as wireless, tabletop, button and podium using industry-standard XLR connectors. * The Converge 560 distribution box transports microphone signals over a single Cat 5 cable back to the mixer via distribution boxes significantly reducing on-site wiring complexity and installation time. * Converge 560 also include an intuitive controller for simple user operation, eliminating the need for more expensive control systems and delivering a much lower total system cost. The Converge 560 includes:
An audio mixer
Two microphone distribution boxes with three XLR connectors per box
A wired or wireless controller
New versions now available! The Converge 560 is now also available without a controller included. These versions provide the perfect fit for room applications that require a third-party control system such as AMX or Crestron, all at an extremely competitive price point.
