Shure recently previewed two new members of its award winning ULX-D product family at the InfoComm trade show in Las Vegas.
The ULXD4D Dual Channel and the ULXD4Q Quad Channel receivers attracted tremendous attention from visitors.
First launched as a single channel ½ rack receiver package at the NAMM Show in January 2012, the ULX-D delivered a host of cool features normally only found in high end products at an attractive price point.
The newly launched ULXD4D Dual Channel and ULXD4Q Quad Channel receivers expand on this impressive feature set, enabling creation of extremely high density systems. According to Shure, one hundred ULX-D transmitters can operate together using just 12 MHz of spectrum.
The new receivers promise to be the ideal solution for any potential spectrum crunch in the future, post the digital dividend reallocation when more and more systems are run in significantly less spectrum.
A simple front panel scan from a ULX-D receiver in a built-up area such as Sydney or Melbourne will easily find 60+ free frequencies using a single frequency band system. Previously, this would have required multiple frequency bands of product, and possibly a dedicated radio systems engineer to achieve.
In addition to high density operation, the new receivers squeeze more into a smaller physical space with the quad (ULXD4Q) packing four channels into a 1RU chassis.
Each receiver features antenna and network cascade ports facilitating easy linking to additional ULX-D receivers. The networked digital audio output utilises Audinates Dante digital audio protocol.
will be showcasing the ULX-D receiver including a pre-release sample of the ULXD4Q quad receivers at the Integrate Expo 2012 from August 21 to 23 in Sydney.
