Shure expands wireless system integration with Yamaha consoles

Shure has announced expanded integration between its Axient, QLXD, and ULXD wireless microphone systems and Yamaha CL and QL series mixing consoles.

With Yamaha’s firmware version 4.1, sound engineers can monitor and control key features from the mix position during a show.

Sound engineers can discover connected wireless systems; identify and map each system to the desired input channel; monitor transmitter battery status, RF, and audio signal level; and adjust receiver audio output level when Shure AXT400, QLXD4, or ULXD4 digital receivers are connected to the same network as a Yamaha CL or QL series console. With Axient wireless systems, transmitter input gain can even be controlled remotely from the mixing console through the ShowLink Access Point.

The enhanced capabilities are the result of collaboration between engineering teams at Shure and Yamaha that has been ongoing for several years. Previous firmware releases enabled CL series consoles to control discovery and patching for Shure ULXD4D and ULXD4Q receivers from the CL console touch panel displays, without the need for Dante Controller PC software.
