Audio Signal Encryption
The QLX­D receiver features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES­256) to protect the audio signal. When encryption is en­
abled, the receiver generates a unique encryption key which is shared with a the transmitter during an IR sync. Transmitters
and receivers that share an encryption key form a protected audio path, preventing unauthorized access by other receivers. To
maintain security, components remain encrypted when turned off and on.
Creating an Encrypted Audio Channel
1. Press the menu button to navigate to the encryption menu, indicated by the key icon.
2. Use the arrow buttons to select an encryption option:
◦ on = encryption enabled
◦ OFF = encryption disabled
3. Press enter to save. The key icon will be shown on the receiver display.
4. Press the sync button and align the IR sync windows of the transmitter and receiver. The encryption key icon will ap­
pear on the transmitter screen when the IR sync is complete and the encryption key has been transferred from the re­
ceiver.
Additional transmitters can share the same encryption key with a single receiver. Perform an IR sync to encrypt each additional
transmitter.
Note: When OFF is selected to disable encryption, perform an IR sync to clear the encryption key from the transmitter and prevent an encryption mismatch er­
ror or FAIL message.

System Set Up
Creating Audio Channels
A wireless audio channel is formed when a receiver and transmitter are tuned to the same frequency. To ease setup, frequen­
cies available to the QLX-D system are organized into channels. Each channel is assigned to a specific preset frequency.
The QLX-D system provides 3 methods for tuning the receiver and transmitter to the same frequency:
• Scan and IR Sync: The receiver scans the RF spectrum for the best available frequency and an IR sync automatically
tunes the transmitter to the receiver frequency
• Manual Channel Assignment: Manually setting the receiver and transmitter to the same channel number forms an audio
channel
• Manual Frequency Assignment: Manually setting the receiver and transmitter to the same frequency rather than using
channels forms an audio channel
Important: Before you begin a scan or frequency assignment:
• Turn off: All transmitters for system you are setting up to prevent interference with frequency scans.
• Turn on: The following potential sources of interference including other wireless systems, computers, CD players, large
LED panels, and effects processors to prevent selection of occupied frequencies.
Scan and IR Sync
The simplest way to create an audio channel is to use the scan function to find the best available receiver channel, and then
use the IR sync feature to automatically tune the transmitter to the receiver channel.
Step 1: Scanning to Find the Best Channel
The Scan function automatically selects the best available receiver channel.
1. Navigate to the Scan menu option.
2. Press enter to start the scan.
3. When the scan is complete, the channel will appear on the display.

Connect receivers to an active Ethernet network. All receivers must be on the same subnet.
Prior to performing a network scan, turn on all receivers and allow 60 seconds for all receivers to join the network.
Choose a group or custom group for deployment on the receiver that will be used to initiate the network scan.
To start a network scan, press the menu button and navigate to the network scan menu. Press enter.
When the scan is complete, the displays of receivers waiting for frequencies will flash.
Press enter to deploy the frequencies or press menu to cancel the deployment.
The front panel LEDs on each receiver will blink when a deployed frequency has been assigned.
Note: Full frequency deployment may not occur if the number of receivers in the network exceeds the number of available frequencies in the selected group.
Try another group or rescan after turning off unused receivers.
Step 2: IR Sync for Automatic Transmitter Set Up
Performing an IR Sync automatically tunes the transmitter to match the receiver frequency, forming a wireless audio channel.
1. Turn on the transmitter.
2. Press the sync button on the receiver. The red ir LED will blink indicating that sync mode is active.
3. Align the IR sync windows of the transmitter and receiver at a distance of <15 cm (6 in.). When the transmitter and re­
ceiver are aligned, the red ir LED remains on and the sync will automatically occur.
4. sync good appears on the display when IR sync is complete. The blue rf LED will illuminate indicating that the transmit­
ter is within range of the receiver.
Note: If the IR sync fails, repeat the IR sync procedure, carefully maintaining alignment between the IR windows of the transmitter and receiver.
Manual Channel Assignment
An audio channel can be manually created by simply setting the receiver and transmitter to the same channel number. For ex­
ample, a receiver set channel 3 and a transmitter channel 3 would form an audio channel.

Configuration Tips
•
•
•
•
•
Use shielded Cat 5 or better Ethernet cables to ensure reliable network performance
The LEDs on the Ethernet port illuminate indicating a network connection is active
The network icon illuminates when the receiver detects additional Shure devices on the network
All components must operate on the same subnet
Use multiple Ethernet switches to extend the network for larger installations
Network Troubleshooting
•
•
•
•
Use only one DHCP server per network
All devices must share the same subnet mask
All receivers must have the same level of firmware revision installed
Look for the illuminated network icon on the front panel of each device:
If the icon is not illuminated, check the cable connection and the LEDs on the Ethernet port.
If the Ethernet port LEDs are not illuminated and the cable is plugged in, replace the cable and recheck the LEDs and net­
work icon.
To check connectivity of WWB6 to the network:
1. Start WWB6 software and use Inventory view to see devices connected to the network.
2. If not, find the IP address from one of the devices on the network (such as a receiver) and see if you can ping it from
the computer running WWB6.
3. From a WINDOWS/MAC command prompt, type ‘ping IPADDRESS’ of the device (e.g. "ping 192.168.1.100").
4. If the ping returns success (no packet loss), then the computer can communicate with the device on the network. If the
ping returns failure (100% packet loss), then verify that the IP address of the computer is on the same subnet as the re­
ceiver.
5. If the pings are successful and the devices still do not show up in the WWB6 inventory, check to ensure all firewalls are
either disabled or allow the WWB network traffic to pass to the application. Check that firewall settings are not blocking
network access.
Setting the IP Address and Subnet Mask Manually
IP addresses and subnet masks can be manually set from the advanced menu in the receiver or from the monitor panel in
Wireless Workbench 6.
Network settings entered manually must be valid and conform to IP protocols to ensure proper network communication.
