Shure focuses on digital wireless at PLASA 2017

Axient Digital mics and receivers with laptop

Shure will show digital wireless systems at the UK’s PLASA show, September 17 to 19 at Olympia in London.

The company will also stage a seminar called “Preparing for the loss of 700MHz – what you need to know” on September 18 at 3.45pm in the Audio and AV Theatre. 

Tuomo Tolonen, Shure UK’s pro audio group manager and RF specialist, will discuss how to prepare for the loss of the 700MHz RF band, which is being auctioned in May 2020, and will no longer be available for wireless microphone and in-ear monitoring system use.

Shure will also demonstrate the GLX-D Advanced system, mid-tier QLX-D and ULX-D, and the flagship Axient Digital wireless system on its stand: G40.

Axient Digital was launched earlier in the year and incorporates a minimal-latency digital RF engine. It offers a 184MHz tuning range with high channel density and advanced automatic RF interference detection and avoidance features. The scalable, networkable system includes a universal receiver, available in dual and quad-band versions (AD4D/AD4Q), which works with two different transmitter types: the AD series and the Showlink-enabled ADX series. The ADX series includes the ADX1M, a bodypack with an internal, self-tuning antenna. All of the AD and ADX series transmitters will be shown at PLASA, with the system's dual and quad-band receivers and associated batteries and charging units. GLX-D Advanced also incorporates automatic frequency management technology.
