Esplanade in Singapore deploys Shure wireless microphones

The Esplanade in Singapore recently overhauled its wireless microphone system to adopt the latest available technological advancements with Shure wireless microphones chosen for the job. The system was provided by Shure Authorized distributor, Electronics & Engineering.

A total of 172 channels of Axient and 32 channels of PSM1000 Personal Stereo Monitors (IEM) have been installed in the theatres, including 16 channels of Axient in the Concert Hall, 32 channels of Axient in the Theatre, 8 channels of Axient in the Recital Studio, Theatre Studio, The Concourse and the Outdoor Theatre respectively.

60 channels of Axient in portable racks and 32 channels of Axient with UR3 plug-on transmitters have been installed across all the spaces within the venue for either an expansion to fixed systems or working independently.

Ed Ferguson, technical manager for sound at The Esplanade Co Ltd., commented: “The main aim of the overhaul project was to replace our existing wireless microphone systems so that Esplanade complies with Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore’s pending ‘Frequency Allocation and Assignment’ regulations. We required a flexible, deployable system capable of exceptional audio quality and the high demands of our operations, and we found that Shure Axient met these requirements.”

Gary Goh, deputy managing Director of E&E also commented, “Axient has marked significant technological advancement that helped us redefine previous production parameters. Knowing that The Esplanade continuously host a myriad of activities, we put forward a complete solution that offers flexible, user-friendly productions for unprecedented audio in any environment. We accomplished the wireless multi-channel application by combining Shure’s industry-leading technology with proper design to overcome interferences issues traditionally linked to RF-intensive productions.”

Furthermore, the Shure Wireless Workbench (WWB) software was also chosen by the Esplanade for full monitoring of the frequency network.
