NAMM 2017: Shure reveals GLX-D Advanced Digital Wireless

Shure has unveiled the latest additions to its GLX-D Digital Wireless line today at the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.

The new GLX-D Advanced Digital Wireless is an enhanced suite of products, which includes the GLX-D Advanced Frequency Manager, rack mount receiver system, remote antennas, and accessories.

The products are designed to provide a multi-system wireless experience to live and event venues, educational institutions or auditoriums with multiple wireless system requirements.

GLX-D Advanced benefits from what the company describes as ‘exceptional’ digital audio, automatic frequency management, and intelligent rechargeable batteries. Using the new Frequency Manager, GLX-D Advanced users can operate up to nine simultaneous systems in typical conditions, and up to 11 channels in optimal conditions.

With a new rack-mountable configuration, GLX-D Advanced allows up to six GLXD4R receivers to be linked to a GLX-D Advanced Frequency Manager via the RF ports. To simplify installation, the Frequency Manager automatically assigns optimal frequencies to all six receivers utilising patented data communication via the existing RF cables. Linking two Frequency Managers together enables the use of additional rack mount systems.

“GLX-D Advanced saves users time and money by including rack hardware and rechargeability in the box,” said Mike Nagel, wireless product manager at Shure. “In fact, over the life of one battery, customers can save 2000 Euros vs. disposable batteries – combining that with the 16-hour run time provides exceptional value.”
