Making its first appearance at a UK trade show is Shure's Microflex Wireless system, which the company is showing at PLASA London 2013.
The scalable system is based around different types of wireless microphone - boundary, gooseneck, bodypack or handheld - which communicate with Access Point Transceivers. Up to eight mics can connect to a single transceiver, and more transceivers can be added to create up to 64 compatible channels.
All Microflex Wireless components can be connected via Ethernet using Microflex Wireless Control Software. This can be used to set up, manage, monitor and control any number of networks, either on site or remotely. Systems are also compatible with third-party control systems such as those from AMX and Crestron.
Pictured here with some of the range is Duncan Savage, manager of Shure's newly formed Systems Division, which has been created to serve integrators and contractors working on large-scale installation projects.
Also at PLASA, Shure announced the launch of the Shure Academy European Audio Network – an educational and industry networking initiative aimed at all levels of the audio industry. This will incorporate Shure's existing training and certification programmes and integrate new workshops and seminars, delivered via e-learning, webinars, hands-on instruction and other media. In the UK this will apply across all the brands handled by Shure Distribution, including DIS and QSC.
