Shure Extends ULX-D System

Shure is extending its ULX-D Digital Wireless Microphone System.

This includes new multi-channel receivers, a High Density mode that enables 47 systems to operate in six MHz of spectrum, and integrated Dante digital audio networking.


The new ULXD4D dual channel digital receiver and ULXD4Q quad channel digital receiver pack two or four channels of wireless into one rack space, with individual gain controls, LED meters, and XLR outputs for each channel.  Like the single-channel, half-rack ULXD4 digital receiver, the new dual and quad receivers feature fully digital audio processing and RF transmission as well as AES 256-bit encryption.


The dual and quad receivers add two new features that make using a large number of systems possible.  Selecting High Density mode enables up to 47 ULX-D systems to operate in six MHz of spectrum (equal to one U.S. television channel), with a working range up to 30 meters.  High Density mode is designed to optimize the system’s output power and digital RF filtering to reduce its spectral footprint from 350 kHz to 125 kHz. This lets ULX-D systems be tuned to frequencies that are closer together without interfering with each other. Even in Standard mode, up to 17 ULX-D systems can operate in six MHz, according to Shure.


The ULXD4D and ULXD4Q receivers are also equipped with integrated Dante digital audio networking, which enables multiple channels of audio to be distributed to a variety of devices over an Ethernet cable, including Yamaha’s new CL Series consoles. Dante networking provides audio transport, and can coexist on the same network as IT and control data. Shure has executed a licensing agreement with Sydney, Australia-based Audinate for the Dante digital audio networking technology.
