At the InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas, Shure (booth 10108) has introduced the QLX-D digital wireless system, providing 24-bit digital audio, networked control and compatibility with Shure’s intelligent rechargeable battery technology.
Designed for live sound and fixed installations, QLX-D digital wireless transmits accurate audio with extended, flat frequency response. The system’s automatic channel scan and IR sync make finding and assigning an open frequency quick and easy.
“This system packs in a lot of sophistication and delivers incredible wireless audio performance. It has outstanding spectrum efficiency, allowing QLX-D users to operate more channels on-air than with any other wireless system in its class,” said Erik Vaveris, wireless category director at Shure. “QLX-D uses the same technology as our high end digital wireless systems in a more affordable package with a streamlined feature set.”
With all-metal construction, QLX-D is built to match demanding environments. AES-256 encryption comes standard and can be enabled for secure wireless transmission. The system’s intelligent lithium-ion rechargeable power options can provide up to 10 hours of continuous use and report remaining runtime in hours and minutes. QLX-D transmitters can also run on standard AA batteries for up to nine hours.
QLX-D works with networking tools, including Shure Wireless Workbench 6 control software, third-party control systems (AMX/Crestron), and iOS devices for control and monitoring with the newly-introduced ShurePlus Channels mobile app.
The QLX-D line will begin shipping in August 2014 in numerous bodypack and handheld configurations. MAP prices start at $999 for a handheld system.
