Shure has introduced the Axient Digital ADX5D portable receiver, a dual-channel, portable wireless slot receiver that’s designed for applications such as sports/events broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), film/episodic television, and electronic field production (EFP).

“We designed the ADX5D Portable Receiver to incorporate the same innovative wireless technology that Axient Digital is known for, all in a portable form factor for professionals in the field or on-the-go,” says Nick Wood, Senior Wireless Category Director, at Shure. “We took the time to ensure this new addition to the Axient Digital family exceeds the rigors of everyday use and lives up to Shure’s reputation for quality that we’ve earned over the past 96

An overview of the new Axient Digital ADX5D portable receiver:

• True digital diversity technology helps designed to significantly mitigate the potential for signal fades or interference that can cause dropouts. Further, it also supports wide dynamic range, AES-256 encryption, and a stated 2 milliseconds of latency from the microphone transducer to the analog output. A wide tuning band ensures reliable operation in any environment.

• Can slot inside and connect directly to the audio inputs of a professional broadcast camera, enabling streamlined connectivity of the two devices.

• ADX5D incorporates ShowLink, which is unique to Axient Digital, and allows for real-time control of all transmitter
parameters, interference detection, and avoidance (see country-specific functionality restrictions below). ShowLink is also designed to make it easier to use backup frequencies and provide remote control directly to the linked transmitters. Compatibility with Wireless Workbench helps support efficient control and configuration, optimal spectrum management, and frequency coordination.

“The ADX5D portable rceiver is an incredible tool to have at my disposal while on set,” states Jon Ailetcher, CAS, Production Sound Mixer, “Chicago PD”, an NBC television network series. “We move very fast on our show and with ADX5D I can easily transition from my cart to my bag, whether we’re on location or in the studio, without affecting my workflow.”

ADX5D is shipping globally this summer. Contact your local sales representative now for availability in your region. Go here for more specifics.

*Country-Specific Functionality Restrictions: ShowLink is not available when ADX5D is used with third-party control devices in United States models. Interference avoidance is only available in Manual mode when using DB15 or DB25 backplates with U.S. models.
