The Audio division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies has provided a Shure ULX wireless microphone system to Aldershot, UK, venue Princes Hall Theatre.
The 600-capacity (seated format) Princes Hall is active for most days of the year, hosting approximately 50 professional shows and at least 40 performances of their sold-out annual pantomime, as well as many local community shows and school/am-dram productions.
Seeking a system compliant with the new PMSE frequency of Channel 38, Princes Hall technical manager Kevin Andrew (pictured) chose a Shure ULX Standard UHF wireless (ULX-S) system from AC-ET after comparing three leading brands.
“We wanted a good, high quality, flexible and robustly-built system that would cover all our bases and last a long time,” said Andrew.
The purchase consisted of 13 Shure ULX1 bodypack transmitters and 13 Shure diversity ULXP4 receivers, plus sixteen Shure cardioid condenser lapel mics, a set of headset mic capsules, and eight Shure UR2 SM58 hand-held transmitter mics including the SM58 capsule. All equipment was supplied complete with distribution amps, antennas and cables.
The project continued a long-term association between Princes Hall and AC-ET, which supplied some equipment in the past when an automated winch bar system was installed.
Reflecting on the Shure system purchase, Andrew said that AC-ET “turned it around very quickly and efficiently”.
