ULX-D™ Digital Wireless Systems
Uncompromising
Digital Wireless
BREAKTHROUGH
TECHNOLOGIES
ULX-D™ Digital Wireless represents an incredible advancement in wireless performance. Shure innovation brings
to market new features and technologies that dramatically increase spectrum efficiency, dependability, and
signal routing convenience.
High Density Mode
Specifically designed for high channel count applications,
High Density mode optimizes the system by running at
1mW RF transmit power and reducing the modulation
bandwidth. The result is nearly three times the number
of useable frequencies.
• Enables up to 47 ULX-D systems in an open 6MHz
TV channel
• Channels can be tuned directly adjacent to each
other in 125 kHz steps
• Operates with a range of up to 30 meters (100 ft)
with line of sight

Digital Audio Networking Over Ethernet
Bodypack Frequency Diversity
Dante is a total solution for transporting low latency
uncompressed audio over standard IP Ethernet networks
with sample accurate synchronization, automatic device
discovery, and easy to use signal routing.
Frequency Diversity enhances the value of "double-packing" sending the same audio from two transmitters with different radio
frequencies. If problems occur with the reception of one frequency,
ULX-D dual and quad receivers continue to provide flawless audio
by automatically switching to the clean frequency.
• Send multichannel audio from ULX-D receivers to
Dante-equipped mixers over a single ethernet cable
• Auto-discovery and easy audio networking with Dante Controller
• Compatible with ULXD4D & ULXD4Q receivers
• Safeguards against loss of audio signal caused by RF interference
or by power loss in a transmitter
• Switching between channels occurs in milliseconds, without
interruption to the audio signal
• Selectable option in ULXD4D & ULXD4Q receivers
Generations Ahead
With ULX-D™, Shure has created a breakthrough digital wireless system that incorporates a collection of technological
innovations into one easy-to-use professional wireless system. Offering an unparalleled mix of audio quality, RF performance,
scalable hardware solutions, and intelligent battery technology, ULX-D defines the next generation of digital wireless excellence.
