Sports Venues Win Big with Shure ULX-D® Digital Wireless System

Crystal Clear Audio, RF Performance and Rechargeability Features Make Wireless System a Stand Out

Invercargill, November 2014 - When Shure launched its ULX-D® Digital Wireless Microphone System, a new bar was set for audio quality and spectral efficiency. Generations ahead of any other available system in its class, ULX-D brings a new level of performance to professional sound reinforcement, which is why the solution is quickly being adopted by sports venues across the globe.

“ULX-D has been instrumental for amplifying sound at a variety of sports facilities, says Roger Wilson, Director at Now Sound, authorized Shure distributor in New Zealand. “Recently, New Zealand’s ILT Stadium Southland integrated ULX-D to support its diverse range of events, including games of the local sports clubs, but also expos, shows, and performances. Relying on ULX-D, the stadium’s AV team is now able to ensure crystal-clear sound reinforcement for event emcees and play-by-play court announcers.”

The Shure ULX-D system features 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio for uncompromised sound. Designed to integrate seamlessly with sports venues’ existing audio equipment, the wireless microphone solution pairs well with high quality speaker and amplifier systems to power audio for speeches, court announcements and other event presentations. With extremely efficient and reliable RF performance, ULX-D helps navigate crowded RF environments, caused by cell phones and other wireless devices, with signal stability. The system’s bodypack frequency diversity feature allows two bodypack transmitters to be the back-up channel for each other when interference occurs, avoiding unwanted noise and helping to ensure fans hear audio with no drop outs.

“ULX-D is flawless,” said Ian Pottinger, Director at Southland Electronics, the company charged with identifying top line wireless gear for ILT Stadium Southland. “It works very well, delivering pristine, quality audio that sounds great, even when the main court is faced with a loud crowd.”

Advanced power management also makes the ULX-D wireless set up ideal for sports stadiums and multi-purpose venues. The SB900 Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries provide 11+ hours of performance time. Transmitters and receivers display remaining battery life in hours and minutes, accurate to within 15 minutes. For added flexibility, the system’s dual and quad channel receivers can provide enough voltage to power remote antennas without the need for external power supply, giving mic’d presenters and announcers the ability to move freely around the venue without signal loss.

Adding to its impressive list of features, ULX-D meets rigorous Shure quality standards. Rugged metal houses both transmitters and the receiver, giving sports venue A/V teams the assurance the wireless gear will last, game after game and event after event.

ULX-D Digital Wireless is available in numerous configurations with a wide range of Shure microphone options.
