Shure ULXD14/98H=-L50 overview

  • 1Description

The Shure ULX-D Digital Wireless Instrument Microphone System delivers transparent, 24-bit digital audio transmission, uncompromising audio clarity, extremely efficient RF performance, secure signal encryption and advanced recharging. This system includes the ULXD4 receiver, ULXD1 bodypack transmitter and BETA-98H/C clip-on microphone for brass, woodwinds, and other acoustic instruments

Both the transmitter and receiver are made of galvanized steel, making it rugged enough for any application. Its 24-bit / 48kHz digital audio fidelity, wide frequency response and 120 dB dynamic range result in an audio quality that's synonymous with wired microphones.

Its efficient and stable RF performance features up to 64MHz overall tuning range, support for 14 active transmitters in one 6 MHz TV channel and 60 compatible channels on one frequency band. The ULX-D's optimized scanning automatically finds and deploys the cleanest frequencies available and interference detection alerts provide instant confirmation when interference is present.

The system's 256-bit signal encryption sends RF signal securely. Additional features include intelligent Shure battery circuitry for efficient battery charges, comprehensive LCD displays, XLR and 1/4" phone balanced outputs, Ethernet network capability much more.

Uncompromising Professional Digital Wireless

24-Bit / 48 kHz digital audio delivers incredibly clear and accurate reproduction of the source material
Wide frequency range with flat response for superb low range and transient response
Greater than 120 dB dynamic range provides excellent signal-to-noise performance
Wide selection of trusted Shure Microphones, including the legendary SM58
Encryption-enabled for any application for which secure transmission is needed
- Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256) conforming to the US Government National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) publication FIPS-197
- Enabled via front panel menu on the receiver and sent over IR sync
- A new, unique, randomized encryption key is generated every time encryption is enabled

Extremely Efficient and Reliable RF Performance

Up to 64 MHz overall tuning range (region dependent)
Up to 14 active transmitters in one 6 MHz TV channel (17 on an 8 MHz TV channel)
Over 60 compatible channels on one frequency band
Rock-solid signal stability with no audio artifacts extends over the entire 100 meter line-of-sight range using standard supplied dipole antennas

Rugged, Intelligent Hardware

Optimized scanning automatically finds and deploys the cleanest frequencies available
Proprietary Shure Gain Ranging optimizes the system's dynamic range for any input source, eliminating the need for transmitter gain adjustments
Up to 60 dB of adjustable system gain is easily accessible from the receiver front panel
Upgraded LCD screens with adjustable contrast and brightness on both transmitters and receivers
Rugged metal housing on both transmitters and receiver
Interference detection and alerts provide instant confirmation when interference is present
Ethernet networking for streamlined setup across multiple receivers, Wireless Workbench 6 integration (coming soon), and AMX/Crestron control
Support for frequency coordination with the Axient Spectrum Manager (coming soon)

Advanced Rechargeability - SB900 Shure Rechargeable Battery

Adapted from industry-leading Axient intelligent power management technology
Lithium-Ion chemistry and intelligent Shure battery circuitry results in rechargeable batteries with zero memory effect. The battery can be recharged at any time; a complete discharge is never necessary
Provides ULX-D transmitters with unmatched 12+ hours of performance time
Transmitters and receivers display remaining battery life in hours and minutes accurate to within 15 minutes
SBC200 Dual Docking Charger recharges batteries while inside or outside transmitters
Up to four SBC200s can be linked together to provide docked charging of eight transmitters from one power supply
The SBC800 Eight-Bay Charger brings up to eight SB900 batteries to full charge within three hours and 50% charge in one hour, with charge status LEDs for each battery
AA alkaline backwards compatibility
Both chargers fit in a standard-size rack drawer for easy transport and storage
