Contactless, hands-free ceiling beamforming microphone with speech-reinforcement capability
The MAS-A100 is a state-of-the-art speech reinforcement and recording solution. Attaching and positioning lavalier microphones is time consuming, and handheld microphones restrict movement. However, the Beamforming Microphone is simply affixed to the ceiling, and is ready to use leaving the orator location-free, hassle-free, and hands-free to focus on presenting. And what’s more, operation is totally contactless reducing risk of infection for users.
Dedicated Channels for Speech Reinforcement and Recording
Our comprehensive solution employs audio volume stabilization and clear audio processing to produce sharp recordings.
The MAS-A100 has two channel outputs. The main channel provides speech reinforcement in a classroom environment, while the dedicated rec channel records with a wider capture range and optimal intelligibility perfect for lecture capture and remote learning.
The dual-output channel enables true hybrid learning by providing speech reinforcement in the classroom and recording for remote learning simultaneously to create a true hybrid learning solution.
Simple Installation and Management
Supporting Dante and PoE, MAS-A100 links with third-party systems via a single cable connection. Auto-calibration streamlines system configuration, and settings can easily be adjusted via the network using free MASM-1 management software. Permanent ceiling installation ensures hands-free and contactless operation. And with simple settings, central management and no need to monitor battery use, MAS-A100 is a convenient classroom audio solution.
Beamforming and Intelligent Feedback Reducer
The integration of beamforming technology and our market-leading Intelligent Feedback Reducer produces clear audio with hands-free speech reinforcement, leaving the presenter hands-free. Sony’s high-performance digital signal processing and unique algorithms extract speech sound while suppressing unwanted feedback (howling).
Our Beamforming Microphone incorporates advanced noise-reduction technologies to minimize ambient noise. Stationary background noise arising from projectors and air conditioning is automatically detected and reduced to achieve clear sound resulting in better intelligibility and, ultimately, better understanding for listeners.
In addition to this, the Ambient Noise Filter feature automatically detects and filters out intermittent and distracting sounds, such as the typing of a keyboard, click of a mouse, or the turning of pages.
Automatic gain control
The MAS-A100 has a useful inbuilt volume normalization feature to maintain stable volume regardless of the distance between the presenter and the microphone, leaving the presenter free to move around the space without the audio quality deteriorating. Automatic gain control adjusts the strength of the signal received to ensure clear and consistent sound for easy listening.
The Beamforming Microphone optimizes the parameters of audio processing for speech reinforcement automatically. The microphone generates a test signal, which is captured by the loud speakers. The system then calculates and configures the parameters for speech reinforcement. This calibration is required only on initial installation, minimizing time-consuming set-up and system maintenance.
- Generate test signal.
- Capture test signal from loudspeakers.
- Calculate and configure optimal parameters for speech reinforcement.

Microphone Array System Manager (free download)
Our comprehensive solution includes free Microphone Array System Manager software (MASM-1). The software supports installation and configuration of initial settings, as well as monitoring, operations and firmware management. MASM-1 is a total management solution, enabling users to manage multiple microphones in multiple locations centrally and easily via the local network.
Whether you’re integrating into a Dante audio system or an existing analog system, Beamforming Microphone provides simple integration with minimal fuss. You can also calculate how many microphones you need to deliver seamless lectures with our online configurator tool, which calculates the dimensions of your room to provide the optimum setup.
Bass Boost: Enhance audio quality for clear and easy listening with adjustable levels of bass boost.
Dante® and PoE compatibility: The MAS-A100 is compatible with third-party Dante mixers, converters and other devices, as well as power over Ethernet (PoE). There’s no complicated wiring—a single cable can connect the microphone to the system.
Status LED: The microphone has an inbuilt status LED, enabling both instructor and operator to easily recognize the microphone status.
API: Our Beamforming Microphone can be operated by API, permitting simple external control and customization, as well as linking with existing systems.
