Shure has introduced its new Axient Digital ADX5D Portable Receiver, expanding its flagship digital wireless line for film and TV production.
The dual-channel, portable wireless slot receiver is intended for use in sports/events broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), film/episodic television, and electronic field production (EFP).
The ADX5D uses true digital diversity technology, aiming to prevent signal fades and dropouts, while offering AES-256 encryption and 2 ms latency from the mic transducer to the analogue output. A wide tuning band ensures reliable operation in any environment.
The receiver’s form factor is intended to make it an on-the-go wireless receiver, allowing it to slot inside and connect directly to the audio inputs of a professional broadcast camera. The portability is also intended to aid film and TV sound mixers who often have discrete powering, audio-routing, and/or RF-distributing gear in their portable recording bags.
ADX5D incorporates Shure’s ShowLink technology, which allows for real-time control of transmitter parameters, interference detection and avoidance. Intended for remote, hybrid, or on-location sound environments, ShowLink aids use of back-up frequencies, provides remote control directly to linked transmitters and is compatible with Shure’s Wireless Workbench software.
