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™ .

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.

Encryption
Audio is encrypted with the Advanced Encryption Standard ( AES -256), as specified by the US Government National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) publication FIPS-197. Shure devices that support encryption require a passphrase to make a connection. Encryption is not supported with third-party
devices.
To activate encryption:
1. Open the Settings menu and select the General tab.
2. Select the Enable Encryption checkbox.
3. Enter a passphrase. All devices must use the same passphrase to establish an encrypted connection.
Important: For encryption to work:
•
Encryption must be universally enabled or disabled on all connected Shure devices
•
AES67 must be disabled in Dante Controller to turn encryption on or off. AES67 encryption is currently not supported.
Software Installation, Management, and Security
Software Installation and Device Discovery
The Shure Web Device Discovery application is used to access the web application for a Shure device. The web application opens in a web browser to provide
comprehensive device management. Any computer networked to the device can access the GUI with this application.

Firmware Updates
Firmware is embedded software in each component that controls functionality. Periodically, new versions of firmware are developed to incorporate additional
features and enhancements. To take advantage of design improvements, new versions of the firmware can be uploaded and installed using the Shure Update
Utility. Software is available for download from http://www.shure.com.
10/28
2017/10/30
ANI4IN Audio Network Interface
Shure Incorporated
Important: When components are connected through the Shure MXW Audio Network Interface, their firmware must be updated on one device at a time prior
to updating the MXW Audio Network Interface firmware. Attempting to update all devices at once will cause the interface to reboot after its firmware is updated,
and the connection to other networked components will be lost.
Perform the following steps to update the firmware:
CAUTION! Ensure the device has a stable network connection during the update. Do not turn off the device until the update is complete.
1. Connect the device and computer to the same network (set to the same subnet).
2. Download Shure Update Utility app and install it.
3. Open the application.
4. Click Check For Updates... button to view new firmware versions available for download.
5. Select the desired firmware and press Downloadto download it to the Firmware Library.
6. From the Update Devices tab, select the new firmware and press Send Updates... to begin the firmware update, which overwrites the existing firmware on
the device.
Firmware Release Requirements
All devices comprise a network with multiple communications protocols that work together to ensure proper operation. The recommended best practice is that
all devices are on an identical release. To view the firmware version of each device on the network, open the component user interface, and look under Settings>About.
The format for Shure device’s firmware is MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH. (Ex. 1.6.2 where 1 is the Major firmware level, 6 is the Minor firmware level, and 2 is the
Patch firmware level.) At minimum, devices that operate on the same subnet should have identical MAJOR and MINOR release numbers.
•
Devices of different MAJOR releases are not compatible.
•
Differences in the PATCH firmware release level may introduce undesired inconsistencies.

Levels and Metering
Adjusting Input Levels
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
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)
Metering
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.

ANI4IN Command Strings
Command Strings
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.
The character “x” in all of the following strings represents the channel of the ANI4IN and can be ASCII numbers 0 through 4 as in the following table

Networking and Dante
Digital Audio Networking
Dantetm digital audio is carried over standard Ethernet and operates using standard Internet Protocols. Dante provides low latency, tight clock synchronization,
and high Quality-of-Service (QoS) to provide reliable audio transport to a variety of Dante devices. Dante audio can coexist safely on the same network as IT
and control data, or can be configured to use a dedicated network.
Switch Recommendations for Dante Networking
In addition to the basic networking requirements, Dante audio networks should use a Gigabit network switch or router with the following features:
•
Gigabit ports
•
Quality of Service (QoS) with 4 queues
•
Diffserv (DSCP) QoS, with strict priority
•
Recommended: A managed switch to provide detailed information about the operation of each network link (port speed, error counters, bandwidth used)
Dante™ Transmit Flows
Dante Flows
This device supports up to 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
This device can connect with up to two Dante devices.
The Shure MXA310, ANI22, ANIUSB-MATRIX 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 of these devices 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
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.

Networking Terminology
PTP (Precision Time Protocol): Used to synchronize clocks on the network
DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point): Standardized identification method for data used in layer 3 QoS prioritization
Packet Bridge
Packet bridge enables an external controller to obtain IP information from the control interface of a Shure device. To access the packet bridge, an external
controller must send a query packet over unicast UDP* to port 2203 on the Dante interface of the Shure device.
1. Send a UDP packet with a minimum 1-byte payload .
Note: The maximum accepted payload 140 bytes. Any content is allowed.
2. The Shure device will send a response packet over unicast UDP to the controller, using a destination UDP port identical to the source port of the query
packet. The payload of the response packet follows this format:
Bytes
Content
0-3
IP address, as 32-bit unsigned integer in network order
4-7
Subnet mask, as 32-bit unsigned integer in network order
8-13
MAC address, as array of 6 bytes
Note: The Shure device should respond in less than one second on a typical network. If there is no response, try sending the query again after verifying
the destination IP address and port number.
*UDP: User Datagram Protocol
