Shure has announced ShurePlus Channels, a new iOS app providing real-time precision monitoring of select Shure wireless systems.
Supported on Apple mobile devices running iOS7 and available this summer for free download from the iTunes App Store, ShurePlus Channels is compatible with Axient, ULX-D digital wireless, the newly-launched QLX-D digital wireless microphone systems, as well as the PSM1000 personal monitor system.
When connected to a dedicated Wi-Fi network, ShurePlus Channels automatically discovers compatible Shure hardware, offering remote visibility to critical channel information like RF signal strength and interference alerts, audio levels, transmitter battery life and alerts, and other key attributes.
When combined with ShowLink Remote Control for Axient, ShurePlus Channels allows for simultaneous adjustment of transmitter and receiver settings.
Through in-app purchase, users can gain additional ability to remotely control their Shure gear and make changes to channel parameters. For a one-time $9.99 fee per wireless product line, receiver and transmitter settings such as frequency assignment, audio input/output levels, channel and device naming, and menu locking can also be adjusted from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod.
“ShurePlus Channels was designed to meet the demands of today’s audio professionals,” says Chad Reid, user interface design manager, Global Product Management, at Shure. “The ability to freely roam a performance space and confidently monitor and operate their wireless gear provides invaluable flexibility. It works as a great complement to our powerful Wireless Workbench 6 application, but also just as well as a stand-alone solution for users of less complex systems and products, like the new QLX-D digital wireless microphone system.”
