At InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas, Booth #C10108, Shure Incorporated introduced the QLX-D Digital Wireless System designed for live sound events and installations at corporate and government facilities, academic institutions, houses of worship, hotels, music venues and more. Shure states that 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.
Promising exceptional wireless performance with transparent 24-bit digital audio, QLX-D is offered as a cost-effective solution that features networked control and compatibility with Shure’s intelligent rechargeable battery technology.
QLX-D Digital Wireless is said to transmit accurate audio with extended, flat frequency response. The system’s automatic channel scan and IR sync are designed to make finding and assigning an open frequency quick and easy.
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 ten 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.
