UHF-R, Shure's new flagship wireless system for live performance, offers fast, automated setup; real-time system tweaking over network control; and 2,400 selectable frequencies over a wide 60MHz bandwidth, providing up to 40 simultaneous compatible systems per band.
Among UHF-R's standard features are Flash memory for storing six 60-channel custom groups; automated infrared transmitter setup with custom group upload; Audio Reference Companding; built-in USB and Ethernet connectivity; AMX/Crestron compatibility; bit-mapped LCD on all transmitters; and eight hours of operation on two AA cells. The compact UR1 bodypack transmitter can be used with any Shure headworn or lavalier mic (or optional instrument cable), and the UR2 handheld can be ordered with a choice of SM58/86/87 or Beta 58/87A/87C interchangeable capsules. Options include antenna splitters, antenna/power distribution, an in-line antenna amplifier and various passive and active antennas.
With UHF-R, Shure has updated its Wireless Workbench software (downloadable at www.shure.com). Now at Version 4, this Windows-based application simplifies management of networked wireless systems, with access to all system parameters—either globally or to individual units in the system.
