Rugged Bodypack Transmitter with Lav Mic for Hands-Free Presentations

  • The WL184 condenser lavalier mic features a supercardioid polar pattern that greatly minimizes background noise and feedback.
  • The lavalier mic plugs into the locking TA4M connection on the compact QLXD1 bodypack transmitter. The adjustable input sensitivity on the transmitter accommodates a wide variety of speaking styles and mic levels and even instrument-level audio.
  • The rugged, all-metal transmitter features a backlit LCD that displays essential information and provides fast menu access. It can be locked out to prevent accidental changes during a performance. The transmitter syncs to the receiver via infrared with a quick press on the Sync button.

Robust Performance with Digital Switching Diversity Reception

  • The system operates in the G50: 470 to 534 MHz UHF band with a 64 MHz tuning range and 2560 selectable frequencies.
  • Digital Predictive Switching Diversity uses a microprocessor to switch antennas before dropouts occur.
  • Two detachable 1/2 wave dipole antennas are included.
  • 256-bit AES encryption offers unbreachable privacy by using a unique, randomized encryption key generated every time encryption is enabled.
  • Low latency makes the system ideal for meetings that require live sound reinforcement.

Intelligent Hardware Simplifies Setup, Monitoring, and Control

  • The receiver’s scanning function automatically finds, prioritizes, and deploys the cleanest frequencies to transmitters via IR sync.
  • The receiver offers up to 60 dB of adjustable gain with an internal limiter that automatically engages to prevent digital clipping of your audio.
  • Intuitive front-panel controls with audio and RF LED meters as well as a peak indicator, allows for quick visual checks.
  • Ethernet networking enables real-time, precision monitoring and control of your system as well as automatic frequency coordination across multiple receivers, using Wireless Workbench software (WWB) for Mac/Windows.
  • The system is compatible with external controllers such as AMX and Creston.
  • Remote Control: Make adjustments from anywhere in the venue from your iPad/iPhone via the ShurePlus Channels Mobile App for iOS devices.

Smart Power Management Options

  • Smart Power Management on Transmitter: The SB900A lithium-ion intelligent rechargeable battery with an SBC charger (both available separately) provides extended transmitter battery life over alkaline batteries.
  • The SB900A’s remaining battery life can be metered in hours and minutes from the receiver’s front panel.

Enhance the Reliability of Your System

  • Adding UA874 active antennas or PA805 passive antennas increases the range of your system and offers increased protection against interference.
  • The UA844+SWB antenna distribution system (available separately) lets you stretch the power of your antenna pairs, giving you more on-air channels in less setup time.

A Variety of Options to Meet Your Needs

Shure offers numerous lavalier, headset, and handheld microphone options to adapt your QLX-D system as your needs evolve.

  • The WL183 omnidirectional lavalier mic offers consistent pick-up even when the talent turns away from the mic.
  • The discrete MX153 sub-miniature earset mic provides exceptional clarity in spoken word applications.
  • The SM35 is a comfortable, durable headset microphone for active performance.
  • The QLXD2 handheld transmitter is available with several mic capsules choices for presenters who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone.
