About Mira Connect
Mira Connect is a control system and user interface for audio-visual applications found in education, enterprise, retail, hospitality, government, and more.
Mira Connect is designed for applications where a traditional control system’s cost and complexity are too high and where a manufacturer's specific user interface's focus is too narrow and limiting.
All Mira Connect solutions offer the same functionality, are interchangeable, and make it easy for users to:
- Manage audio sources, levels, microphones, and sound reinforcement
- Control displays, video sources, and channel selection
- Control cameras and camera presets in the room
- Dial audio or video calls from a dialpad or imported contact list
- Join scheduled calls with one touch through calendar integration (can dial bridge numbers and pin numbers, too)
- Start and stop content sharing
- And more
The Mira Connect user interface is automatically generated based on the AV equipment configured in Mira Portal. It is designed to be intuitive for even non-technical users. For example, adding an audio processing device (DSP) and video codec allows users to easily dial audio calls using the telephony resources on the DSP and to dial video calls on the video conferencing system with Mira Connect.
All Mira Connect form factors are configured the same way and operate the same way. A comparison table of the Mira Connect options is shown below to help determine which is best for your application.

About Mira Portal
A 12 month Mira Portal Advanced service subscription is included with the purchase of Mira Connect to allow users a trial period to explore the benefits of the advanced features of Mira Connect.
Mira Connect needs to connect to Mira Portal, our cloud-based management platform, to get provisioned initially and then can operate without access to Mira Portal. A connection to Mira Portal provides secure remote management and configuration, firmware updates, remote control capabilities, Mira Connect Me on a personal device, and more.
When ordering a Mira Connect appliance, note that 12 months of Mira Portal Advanced service is included. After the 12 months have expired, if you like the Advanced features, you can renew the Advanced service offering to retain access to the advanced features. Otherwise, the service level shifts to the Basic features until you decide to upgrade to the Advanced level. See the Comparison of Mira Portal Service Levels.
