Compatible Shure wireless products can now be remotely monitored and controlled from the company’s new iOS7 Android app, via iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. ShurePlus Channels was debuted at the KOBA 2014 tradeshow in Seoul, South Korea.
The iOS-based application allows users realtime remote monitoring and controlling of Shure wireless systems including Axient, ULX-D Digital Wireless, the newly-launched QLX-D Digital Wireless, as well as the PSM1000 Personal Monitor System.
Supported on Apple mobile devices running iOS7, ShurePlus Channels relays critical channel information including RF signal strength, audio levels, and remaining battery life, and allows remote adjustment of frequency assignments, audio gain, muting, and more.
“ShurePlus Channels was designed to meet the demands of today’s audio professionals,” said Chad Reid, user interface design manager, global product management, at Shure. “The ability to freely roam a performance space and confidently monitor and operate their wireless gear provides invaluable flexibility. It works as a great complement to our powerful Wireless Workbench 6 application, but also just as well as a stand-alone solution for users of less complex systems and products, like the new QLX-D Digital Wireless Microphone System.”
When combined with ShowLink Remote Control for Axient, ShurePlus Channels allows for simultaneous adjustment of transmitter and receiver settings. The basic version to monitor the systems is free, and additional in-app purchases can be made. Crucial receiver and transmitter settings, such as frequency assignment, audio input/output levels, channel and device naming, and menu locking, can be adjusted from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod.
