Highly flexible and scalable wireless microphone options for medium to large scale meeting applications.

Shure has announced at the ISE Show, held February 7 – 10 in Amsterdam, that it is expanding its ULX-D Digital Wireless System with two new microphone transmitters for live business events.

The new ULXD6 boundary and ULXD8 gooseneck transmitters offer brilliant ULX-D sound quality with low latency, signal stability, high spectral efficiency, leading encryption technology, and are compatible with rechargeable Lithium-Ion or standard AA batteries. In addition, they work in the UHF TV band as well as other frequency bands, providing operability in countries or environments where Microflex Wireless bands are already used or unavailable.

The new transmitters are designed for convention centres, hotels, and corporate and educational environments. When used with ULX-D receivers in High Density mode, users can achieve high channel counts of 100 or more. For confidential discussions that require secure transmission, ULX-D features AES-256 encryption.

The ULXD6 boundary and the ULXD8 gooseneck transmitter offer a low-profile form factor, which is the perfect choice for meetings and events where quick and easy setup and teardown are key. With a long transmission range (up to 330 feet/100 meters) and an extensive selection of antenna distribution components, ULXD6 and ULXD8 are efficiently scalable. Both new ULX-D additions run with standard AA batteries or Shure SB900A rechargeable batteries, providing nine hours of operating time, and can be quickly replaced so meetings can continue uninterrupted.

The SBC450 4-bay and SBC850 8-bay networked charging stations allow four or eight ULXD6 or ULXD8 transmitters to be charged fast and conveniently, without removing the battery from the transmitter. Through the network, users can easily monitor and change transmitter settings or install firmware updates while they are charging. The Shure Wireless Workbench® software solution as well as third party control systems (AMX, Crestron, Extron, Cue, etc.) facilitate remote access to the transmitters’ parameters.

The ULXD6 boundary and ULXD8 gooseneck transmitters will be available in summer 2017.
