Shure Unveils ULX-D Digital Wireless System at NAMM 2012

NILES, IL, January 19, 2012— While available spectrum may be shrinking, the demand for wireless audio in both presentation and performance settings is growing. To meet this need, Shure Incorporated is introducing the ULX-D™ Digital Wireless system, offering unmatched sound quality, improved spectral efficiency, robust encryption, and intelligent rechargeable batteries for professional sound reinforcement applications. The system is designed for use in corporate, education, worship, and live performance facilities.

“Until today, digital wireless microphone users have had to accept trade-offs,” said Erik Vaveris, Category Director for Wireless products at Shure. “No digital wireless system has come close to meeting the performance standard set by Shure's industry leading analog wireless product line - until now.”

The ULX-D system’s unprecedented combination of audio quality, signal stability, and spectral efficiency is driven by a unique digital wireless audio technology developed by Shure. “The result is a tremendous breakthrough in wireless audio quality,” said Vaveris. “This is the purest reproduction of source material ever available in a wireless system.”

The ULX-D system also raises the bar for spectral efficiency and RF signal stability. “The intermodulation performance of ULX-D enables a dramatic increase in the number of simultaneous active systems in one TV channel, making the most of the available spectrum,” said Vaveris. Up to 14 ULX-D systems can operate in one six MHz TV channel, making it easy to use, even in highly congested urban areas where open TV channels can be scarce. For applications where secure transmission is required during confidential meetings, the ULX-D system includes Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption for privacy.

While audio and RF quality are always paramount, wireless users are often frustrated by something more mundane: battery management. Based on the technology used in Shure’s Axient wireless system, the SB900 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery pack provides ULX-D transmitters with up to 12 hours of performance time. Transmitters and receivers display remaining battery life in hours and minutes, accurate to within 15 minutes. The battery can be recharged at any time with no memory effect, and a complete discharge is never necessary. The SBC200 Dual Docking Charger recharges batteries while in the transmitter or out, and up to four chargers can be linked together and powered by one power supply. An SBC800 Eight-Bay Battery Charger is also available, and both chargers fit in a standard-size rack drawer for easy storage and transport. ULX-D transmitters can also run on standard AA batteries for up to 11 hours.
