Shure's ULX-D Wireless System is commended by Plasa

 

 

All ULX-D features
explained per video:

Audio performance

  • 24-bit / 48 kHz digital audio delivers incredibly clear and accurate capturing of the source material
  • Wide frequency range with flat response for superb low range and transient response
  • 120 dB dynamic range provides excellent signal-to-noise performance 
  • ~120dB dynamic range with XLR, ~130dB with Dante
  • Wide selection of trusted Shure Microphones

RF Performance

  • 64-72 MHz wide frequency band versions
  • 8 MHz TV = 17 WL Channels at 10 mW, preprogrammed (22 WL Channels, optimally calculated)
  • 1 mW, 10 mW, 20 mW menue-selectable RF power options
  • Signal stability with no audio artifacts extends over the entire 100 meter line-of-sight range using standard supplied dipole antennas
  • Optimized scanning automatically finds and deploys the cleanest frequencies available

Encryption

  • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256)
  • A new, unique, randomized encryption key is generated every time encryption is enabled
  • Enabled via front panel menu on the receiver and sent over IR sync

Operation and Configuration

  • Proprietary Shure Gain Ranging optimizes the system’s dynamic range for any input source and eliminates the need for gain adjustments at the transmitter
  • Up to 60 dB of adjustable system gain is easily accessible from the receiver front panel
  • Interference detection and alerts provide instant confirmation when interference is present
  • Ethernet networking for streamlined setup across multiple receivers, Wireless Workbench 6 (WWB6) integration, as well as AMX and Crestron control
    Support for frequency coordination with the Axient™ Spectrum Manager
    Rugged metal housing on both transmitters and receiver
  • LCD screens with adjustable contrast and brightness on both transmitters and receivers

Advanced Rechargeability

  • Adapted from Axient™ intelligent power management technology
  • Lithium-Ion chemistry and intelligent Shure battery circuitry results in rechargeable batteries with zero memory effect. The battery can be recharged at any time; a complete discharge is not necessary
  • Provides ULX-D handheld and bodypack transmitters with 12+ hours of performance time
  • Transmitters and receivers display remaining battery life in hours and minutes accurate to within 15 minutes
  • SBC200 Dual Docking Charger recharges batteries while inside or outside transmitters
  • Up to four SBC200s can be linked together to provide docked charging of eight transmitters from one power supply
  • The SBC800 Eight-Bay Charger brings up to eight SB900 batteries to full charge within three hours and 50 % charge in one hour, with charge status LEDs for each battery
  • AA-sized battery backwards compatibility
  • Both chargers fit in a standard-size rack drawer for easy transport and storage

High Density mode

  • Specifically designed for high channel count applications requiring a working range up to 30 meters, the High Density Mode allows operating up to 560 (five hundred sixty) channels in 72 MHz, respectively 63 channels in an 8 MHz TV channel over standard mode at 1mW transmit power.

ULXD4D (Dual) and ULXD4Q (Quad)

  • The 1RU metal chassis with internal power supply houses two, respectively four independent receivers, each with their own audio and RF meters, gain control and XLR outputs.
  • Plus with RF cascade and two Ethernet ports, units can easily share the RF signal and be networked together for simplified multi-channel frequency coordination and deployment.

Bodypack Frequency Diversity (Dual and Quad only)

  • Bodypack Frequency Diversity safeguards against loss of audio signal caused by RF interference or by power loss in a transmitter.
  • The signals from a common source via two bodypack transmitters with different frequencies are routed to receiver's audio outputs.
  • Switching between channels occurs in milliseconds, without interruption the audio signal. 
  • Bodypack Frequency Diversity and Audio Summing are complimentary features and can be simultaneously active

Audio Summing (Dual and Quad only)

  • Combining of selected audio channels to be routed to all selected outputs and allows the receiver to function as a 2 or 4 channel mixer. All XLR outputs of the selected channels provide the summed audio.
  • Bodypack Frequency Diversity and Audio Summing are complimentary features and can be simultaneously active.

DANTE™ Digital Audio Networking Over Ethernet (Dual and Quad only)

  • Digital audio is carried over standard Ethernet using shielded Cat5e (or higher)
  • cables. Dante™ provides low latency, tight clock synchronization, and high Quality of-
  • Service (QoS) to provide reliable audio transport to a variety of Dante devices.
