NM-T1 Tabletop Beamforming Microphone

Q-SYS network microphone

The Q-SYS NM Series NM-T1 is a tabletop network PoE microphone native to Q-SYS and ideal for the collaboration space. The microphone features advanced beamforming technology that ensures optimal clarity and separation for all surrounding talkers. It also offers onboard call controls, programmable user button and touchless muting capability, which lets users mute or unmute with the wave of a hand. As a native Q-SYS Product, the NM-T1 integrates seamlessly into your Q-SYS system without the need for complex programming.​​​​

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Touchless mute via proximity motion sensor
  • Onboard call controls, including a programmable user button customizable in Q-SYS Designer Software
  • Programmable RGB light ring for fully customizable color, pattern, speed
  • Comprehensive management via Q-SYS Designer Software and Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager
  • Includes table-mounting accessories

Advanced Beamforming Technology: The Q-SYS NM-T1 features four software-configurable zones that can be activated based on where coverage is (or isn’t needed) to reduce echo and ensure clarity for far end callers. This also enables flexible seating arrangements and provides up to 360° coverage.

Intuitive UI with touchless muting: Easily manage your meetings with the Q-SYS NM-T1 onboard call controls, including a programmable user button and programmable RGB light ring status indicator, both of which are fully customizable within Q-SYS Designer Software. The microphone also features a built-in proximity motion sensor that allows for a simple hand wave to mute/unmute for users that are nearby.


In Sync with Q-SYS Call Sync: Automatically sync onboard controls and LED status indicators on select Q-SYS device (NM-T1 microphone, TSC Series Gen 3 touchscreens & NL-SB42 PoE speakerbar) keeping the state of all in-room endpoints in sync. Additionally, it provides mute sync for UC platforms via the Q-SYS HID controller, as well as ringing and hook state for Q-SYS softphone and POTS controller.


Rethink AEC Requirements: The Q-SYS NM-T1 is designed to draw from a larger processing resource pool that isn’t directly tied to the standard AEC “channel count” resources available in each Q-SYS Core processor. Because of this, the AEC requirements for the NM Series are measured by the quantity of NM-T1 microphones each Core can support, rather than a specific AEC channel count. We’ve also designed the NM Series so that they may be deployed alongside third-party microphones if you desire. Please check back here as this product draws nearer to its tentative customer shipment dates in Summer 2022 as Q-SYS will provide more granular details on how those AEC resources are allocated per Core.
