Introducing BLX Wireless Systems -
Wireless Freedom Made Simple
In this 60-minute webinar, The Shure Learning Center will present everything you need to know about BLX Wireless Systems.
We will cover the features and options that make BLX Wireless the ideal wireless microphone system for performers, presenters, and houses of worship who need a rugged,
easy-to-use, and great-sounding system.
Since the introduction of the original BETA 57 and BETA 58® microphones, the premium sound quality, road-worthy build, and application-specific versatility of the BETA series have established it as the go-to microphones for professional sound reinforcement applications.
Join us for this informative webinar, where we will trace the development of the BETA line from the early supercardoid dynamic microphones to a full range of small and large diaphragm condenser microphones in a variety of pickup patterns, designed to suit any application.
We’ll look at the differences of all the various models, and give you tips on how to choose the right microphone for the job.

“Officially, the new “High Density” mode available with Shure’s ULX-D Digital Wireless Microphone System enables 47 systems to operate in just six MHz of spectrum. But Shure’s engineers being who they are, the Guinness Book of World Records should have been called in. Just for the sake of argument, the plan was to demonstrate how 100 channels of wireless could fit onto a 13 MHz stretch of spectrum and operate without so much as a hint of dropouts at a range of 30 meters.“
Some more great press for TC’s VoiceLive Play – this time in the San Francisco Chronicle:
“With the buzz surrounding American Idol, X Factor and America’s Got Talent, the interest in singing among average Americans is growing fast. With VoiceLive Play, a vocal processor by TC-Helicon, music hobbyists and performers can sing along with any MP3 recording by ripping out the original vocals, improve the sound of their voices with pitch correction, harmonies and other effects and transform themselves to sound like popular music acts from several genres. Singers can also track their progress as performers with feedback on where they are excelling and where they need work. With a built-in RoomSense microphone, VoiceLive Play is ready to use right out of the box. VoiceLive Play is available now for a street price of $250.”

Shure announced new products at this year’s NAB show – FP Wireless, Broadcast Headsets, and the UA874 Active Directional Antenna.
FP Wireless – Portable Wireless Excellence
FP Wireless is a cost-effective, portable wireless system targeted for videography applications, which offers easy setup and best‐in‐class audio right out of the box. The FP Wireless series offers a full suite of system components, including a diversity portable receiver and plug-on, bodypack, and handheld transmitter options.
Shure Broadcast Headsets
The dual-sided BRH440M features circumaural ear cups that provide solid sound isolation. The single-sided BRH441M enables the user to hear external audio cues. The single-sided BRH31M is an ultra-lightweight headset providing exceptional comfort and durability.
UA874 Active Directional Antenna
The Shure UA874 is a UHF active directional antenna that delivers improved wireless reception. It uses a log periodic dipole array to produce a cardioid pattern towards the desired coverage area with greater rejection of RF signals outside the coverage area when compared to standard 1⁄2 wave omnidirectional antennas. An integrated amplifier with four gain settings compensate for varying degrees of coaxial cable signal loss. The UA874 can be stand-mounted, suspended from the ceiling, or wall-mounted using the included swivel adapter bracket.
