Product Details

Features

The Shure ULXD4Q Quad Channel Digital Wireless Receiver offers four channels of uncompromising audio quality, RF signal stability, and advanced setup features in a space-efficient single rack unit. Rugged yet lightweight and compact, the 1RU all-metal chassis houses four independent receivers, each with its own audio and RF meters, gain control, and XLR outputs that can be either direct or summed for flexible signal routing.

At only 7.6 pounds, the ULXD4Q offers space savings in the rack and cost savings when shipping. With RF cascade and two Ethernet ports, units can easily share RF signal and be networked together for simplified frequency coordination and deployment. For networked audio applications, Dante™ digital networking allows multiple channels of audio over a single Ethernet cable.

With the suite of features and benefits ULX-D® Digital Wireless Systems offer, the ULXD4Q is truly generations ahead of any other available receiver in its class, and brings a new level of performance and scale to professional sound reinforcement.

Note: When purchasing separate wireless components, please match their frequency bands to ensure proper system operation.

Features

  • Four receivers in a rugged 1RU metal chassis with internal power supply
  • Individual gain controls, LED meters, and XLR outputs for each channel
  • Up to 64 MHz tuning range (region dependent)
  • Digital predictive switching diversity
  • High Density mode optimizes ULX-D systems to simultaneously operate significantly more channels in applications up to 30 meters
  • RF cascade ports allow distribution of RF signal to another unit
  • Optimized scanning automatically finds, prioritizes, and deploys the cleanest frequencies to transmitters over IR sync
  • Bodypack frequency diversity ensures uninterrupted audio for mission-critical applications
  • AES 256-bit encryption-enabled for secure transmission
  • Audio summing routes two or more audio channels to combinations of receiver outputs. Use each channel’s gain adjustment to reach the desired mix.

FCC Consumer Alert (U.S.)

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change.

For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

Firmware

900 MHz ISM

ULXD4Q - 900 MHz ISM Quad Channel Digital Wireless Receiver (1.6.10) See release notes

Posted July 09, 2015

NEW FEATURES

  • 900MHz ISM Site Survey via Wireless Workbench (WWB) for X52, X53, and X54 frequency bands.
  • WWB Site Survey (902 - 928 MHz) Utility, which utilizes ISM-band devices to capture long-term scans and generates processed scan data, tailored specifically for coordination in this spectrum. Access this utility by selecting TOOLS > SITE SURVEY (902 - 928 MHz).
    • This utility is designed to use an ISM-band Shure receiver to assess whether a particular venue is well suited for ISM-band operation of fixed frequency microphone systems.
    • This utility includes the “Usability Report”, which runs sample calculations and reports an approximate number of usable channels in the ISM band.
    • For more information, consult the Wireless Workbench 6 Help System in version 6.11.2 or later.

IMPROVEMENTS

  • Added new frequency bands:
    • Americas (except Brazil): X52: 902-928 MHz
    • Brazil: X53: 902-907.5, 915-928 MHz
    • Australia: X54: 915-928 MHz

NOTES

  • Transmitters to be used with receivers must be updated via IR. After the receiver is updated, follow these steps:
    1. Go to the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE
    2. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter
    3. Press ENTER.
  • When updating transmitter firmware via IR sync, please use caution to not lose IR connection, as it’s possible in rare occasions for upgrades from 1.5.6 or earlier to 1.6.7 or later to cause transmitters to temporarily become non-responsive. If the update fails and the unit is non-responsive, resolve the issue by following these steps:
    1. Using the Shure Update Utility, downgrade the firmware for the ULXD4/ULXD4D/ULXD4Q Receiver to 1.5.6 AND keep the desired transmitter firmware (1.6.7 or latest version).
    2. Update the transmitter firmware to 1.6.7 or the latest version via IR menu. From the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter and then press ENTER.
    3. Upgrade receiver to 1.6.7 or latest version.
  • For operation of ULX-D devices with other Shure networked systems, see the following list of minimum firmware versions that are supported with ULX-D version 1.6.10:
    • QLX-D receiver 1.0.15
    • UHF-R receiver 1.171
    • PSM1000 Transmitter 1.3.12
