Shure, a leading global manufacturer of audio equipment, announces the launch of Stem Ecosystem, a new and cost-effective audio conferencing ecosystem that alleviates the major pains in virtual meetings currently experienced by IT professionals and everyday users, for the first time in Malaysia.
The new line of Stem Ecosystem products will be distributed by the newly appointed distributor, Mahajak Trio Electronic Sdn Bhd (MTE) in Malaysia. Incorporated in 2010, MTE is involved in the sourcing, sale and distribution of a wide and comprehensive range of professional sound equipment such as loudspeakers, audio mixers, amplifiers, signal processors, microphones, video-audio control systems and entertainment lightings in addition to consultancy services, technical advice and conduct training on sound solutions, as well as testing and repair services.
Virtual meetings have become essential for businesses globally and are expected to continue in its importance as organizations move towards a hybrid work arrangement and less business travel. Even before the recent shift to virtual meetings, a 2019 survey Shure conducted with Illuminas found that two-thirds of business professionals believe their employers lack the right conferencing technology. One-third of enterprise meetings have technical issues and users often face challenges when working with conferencing technology.
But better audio doesn’t have to be complicated.
With the launch of award-winning Stem Ecosystem solutions, anyone has the freedom to mix and match devices to create the perfect audio pickup in any collaboration space. Stem Ecosystem solutions deliver high-quality audio products backed by the award-winning industry support infrastructure that Shure is known for. From small collaborative spaces to large enterprises or local colleges, Stem Ecosystem solutions scale to the needs of any sized institution.
“The solution is suitable for organizations of any size seeking a straightforward and customizable experience that can help users save cost through its effortless, no-programming approach,” shared Eric Ong, Director of Sales, Southeast Asia. “Now, Shure can offer a more diverse array of audio conferencing solutions for a wider variety of customers. This is in line with our Southeast Asia (SEA) growth strategy to bring quality audio to the work environment. With Malaysia being an important market in SEA with strong growth potential for professional audio conferencing solutions, we are happy to appoint MTE as our distributor for Stem Ecosystem. We believe that having MTE as our distributor, will expand our reach and make Stem Ecosystem even more accessible to the Malaysian market. Our partnership leverages Shure’s expertise as a professional audio manufacturer and MTE’s strong network in providing audio solutions to their customers”
“We are absolutely excited about Stem Ecosystem. Our coming onboard and working together with Shure at this time couldn’t be more perfect. The pandemic has created a huge vacuum for upgrades in audio conferencing solutions where businesses are eagerly searching for flexible, plug and play options. As most enterprises are transforming away from the old rigid office design, we are confident that Stem Ecosystem is the ideal and effortless solution moving forward. SMEs (small, medium enterprises) will be particularly delighted to have a solution that doesn’t require heavy capital outlay and technical resources to set it up,” says Edwin Lau, Executive Director of MTE.
Stem Ecosystem solutions include wall and table speakerphones, along with a ceiling microphone that blends into any room and syncs with networked loudspeakers, as well as dedicated control systems for a complete audio package:
Stem Table: Optimised for tabletops and flat surfaces, the Stem Table is equipped with nine microphones that perform real beamforming and a downward-facing speaker for superior performance.
Stem Speaker: Built to give users the freedom to expand the sound to anywhere in the room, the Stem Speaker product is an external speaker with three mounting options and a powerful driver for exceptional sound in any meeting space.
Stem Wall: Equipped with 15 microphones that perform beamforming, plus full-range speakers and subwoofers, the Stem Wall product ensures that everybody has a voice.
Stem Ceiling: A 100-microphone ceiling array comes with two mounting options (low profile or chandelier mode) and three-beam options for exceptional coverage in any meeting room.
Stem Hub: When more than one Stem Ecosystem device is used in a room, the Stem Hub product enables multiple units to communicate with each other in the room and function more effectively as a solution. With USB Type B, ethernet, Dante, VoIP connectivity, and pluggable terminal blocks for external speakers, the Stem Hub product has all bases covered.
Stem Control: A dedicated touch controller that connects to the network with a single ethernet connection. The Stem Control product allows access to the Stem Ecosystem platform and remote management of an organisation or can be used as an in-meeting controller with video conferencing platforms.
All Stem Ecosystem devices are networked PoE+ powered products. They are easy to install for IT professionals and systems integrators looking for the ideal scalable audio solution specifically in standard meeting rooms or educational spaces that do not have any special requirements.
