Shure ADX Wireless Transmitters Now Available

Shure announced its award-winning Axient Digital ADX series wireless transmitters are now available through all global resellers and distributors. As the new premier wireless solution in Shure’s portfolio, the ADX series offers enhanced features and form factors, including the ADX1 and ADX2 bodypack and handheld transmitters, ADX2FD frequency diversity handheld and ADX1M, the first micro bodypack with an internal self-tuning antenna.


Catering to evolving customer needs, ADX series transmitters are compatible with the Axient Digital receiver platform and dedicated to providing high-performance RF, exceptional audio quality, command and control, and hardware scalability.

The premier micro bodypack transmitter—an incredibly small, smooth bodypack with an internal antenna—enables greater concealment and more comfortable wear in theater productions and other applications requiring discreet placement. With its breakthrough RF performance, wide-tuning, High Density mode, and encryption, the micro bodypack enables premium, professional-quality wireless digital audio.

The ADX series transmitters also incorporate ShowLink for real-time control of all transmitter parameters, interference detection, and avoidance. The ShowLink Remote Control provides instantaneous adjustment of critical settings across the network. Coupled with the AD610 ShowLink Access Point, it establishes a wireless network between linked Axient Digital transmitters and receivers enabling real-time control over the entire Axient Digital coverage area.

The Axient Digital Wireless System features numerous user-friendly features and benefits:
• High-Performance RF—Incorporating all of the capabilities that professional productions demand, Axient Digital is designed for maximum signal stability. It features true digital diversity with Quadversity receiver technology, significantly mitigating the potential for signal fades or interference that can cause dropouts. Quadversity mode enables users to place sets of diversity antennas in different zones, or double the number of antennas in a single zone, to improve RF signal-to-noise in challenging environments. High Density mode increases the maximum simultaneous system channel count from 17 to 47 per 6-MHz TV band (from 23 to 63 per 8-MHz TV band), while maintaining exceptional audio quality.

• Audio Quality—Featuring pristine digital audio via Dante/AES67 and AES3, Axient Digital has a 20 Hz to 20 kHz range with a flat frequency response and accurate transient response. Axient Digital also boasts wide dynamic range, AES-256 encryption, and an impressive 2ms latency from the mic transducer to the analog output.

• Command and Control—Axient Digital is compatible with Wireless Workbench as well as the ShurePlus Channels App for efficient control and configuration, optimal spectrum management, and frequency monitoring. Additionally, Axient Digital provides networked charging through a suite of smart, high-performance batteries and chargers.

• Hardware and Scalability—Axient Digital’s wide tuning range of up to 184 MHz for all transmitters and receivers covers an extended range of spectrum and simplifies inventory. Dual and quad receiver options, combined with a common receiver platform supporting both AD and ADX transmitters maximize user flexibility and scalability.
