ARCHITECT’S SPEC
The wireless system shall operate in the UHF band between 524 MHz and 865 MHz, with the specific available frequency range being
dependent on the user’s locale. Effective range of the system, receiver to transmitter, shall be 100 meters (300 ft.), under optimal conditions. Each system shall allow selection of over 960 operating frequencies across 24 MHz of bandwidth in order to avoid RF interference.
Optimal frequencies shall be selected automatically, ensuring that individual systems run at their highest level of performance, and that
multiple systems in simultaneous use do not interfere with one another.
An infrared signal beamed from the receiver shall be used to synchronize the frequency between the transmitter and the receiver. The
process of synchronizing the system shall be simple and instantaneous.
Each transmitter shall be powered by two AA batteries. Transmitters shall have a power on–off/mute switch, as well as a timed backlit
LCD showing frequency group and channel, locked/unlocked status, and battery strength. Available transmitters shall include a bodypack
for use with guitars, basses, and other electric instruments, as well as lavalier, headset or instrument microphones, and a handheld transmitter for vocals. The bodypack shall include a 3–position switch and the handheld transmitter shall include a 2–position switch to compensate for higher- or lower-gain devices. Both transmitters shall feature an easily accessible infrared port for system synchronization.
The receiver shall have a multi-function display showing group, channel, frequency, transmitter battery strength, and locked/unlocked
status. The system shall use diversity technology to improve reception, minimize signal dropouts, and achieve the best possible signal-tonoise ratio. The receiver shall include an audio level meter and an infrared port for system synchronization.
The system shall be the Shure SLX Wireless.
