Anaheim, CA (January 20, 2012)—Shure is introducing the ULX-D Digital Wireless system, designed for use in corporate, education, worship, and live performance facilities.
The ULX-D system aims to improve 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 Erik Vaveris, category director for wireless products at Shure. Up to 14 ULX-D systems can operate in one 6 MHz TV channel. For applications where secure transmission is required during confidential meetings, the ULX-D system includes Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption for privacy.
Based on the technology used in Shure’s Axient wireless system, the SB900 lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack reportedly 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 storage and transport. ULX-D transmitters can also run on standard AA batteries for up to 11 hours.
