Recently, at the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Shure announced that two of its
leading digital wireless systems – ULX-D® and QLX-D® – are now available in VHF
spectrum. These VHF options provide users with 42 MHz of tuning bandwidth in
spectrum that is as predictable and as usable as today’s UHF TV band.
As the spectrum landscape evolves, Shure continues to serve as an industry
advocate and information resource, and aims to provide users with new options that
offer the reliability and top-notch sound quality for which Shure wireless systems
are known. These VHF band ULX-D and QLX-D systems build on an existing portfolio
of Shure wireless products designed to offer alternatives for the increasingly
crowded UHF TV Band.
The ULX-D and QLX-D VHF systems and accessories have the same features and
benefits that the UHF systems offer, including spectrum efficiency, powerful
recharging accessories, networking options, and rugged construction for everyday
use. ULX-D Digital Wireless offers extremely efficient RF performance, networked
control, Dante™ digital audio (on ULXD4D and ULXD4Q dual and quad receivers),
and AES-256 encryption for professional sound reinforcement. QLX-D delivers
defined, streamlined performance with transparent 24-bit digital audio. Combining
professional features with simplified setup and operation, QLX-D offers outstanding
wireless functionality for live sound events and installations.
“Our customers are using more wireless than ever before and available spectrum
has become increasingly limited, so we’ve committed ourselves to providing
spectrally-efficient solutions,’ said Mike Nagel, Product Manager for Wireless
Products at Shure. “Shure has developed a robust portfolio of products that now
includes VHF digital wireless systems, which professionals depend on for user-
friendly features and reliable performance.’
A variety of new VHF-ready accessories are available with the VHF versions of ULX-
D and QLX-D, including the UA844+V antenna distribution system, UA834V in-line
amplifier, UA874V active directional antenna, and UA860V passive, ground-
referenced omni-directional antenna. The UA845UWB antenna distribution system is
switchable for UHF/VHF.
The ULX-D and QLX-D Digital Wireless VHF versions will begin shipping in summer
2016. For more information, stop by the Shure booth (#C2635) during NAB 2016, or
