1:30 PM - 2:15 PM What Digital Wireless Can Do For You
Your wireless needs have become more complex but the usable wireless spectrum keeps shrinking. Would a transition to digital wireless benefit you? Join the Shure team as we explore the differences between analog and digital, and the benefits of each - from spectral efficiency to cable management to audio monitoring and signal routing (AES and Dante).
 
2:30 PM - 3:15 PM Maximize Your RF Coverage
When it comes to audio, the wireless signal transmission is just as important as the sound capture. Join the Shure product management and training team as they share best practices for maximizing RF coverage for your set. Topics will include antenna selection and placement, active versus passive combiners, optimal distance between antennas, outdoor versus indoor usage, and constructing antenna zones.
 
3:30 PM - 4:15 PM Tools for Wireless Gear Management and RF Coordination
Even if your wireless gear is set up perfectly, RF traffic in your location can still lead to signal failure. But you can avoid these hurdles with the right tools. Using Axient® Digital wireless, Shure will demonstrate Wireless Workbench® software which allows remote monitoring and management of wireless gear. Then they’ll take it a step further by showing how Shure’s ShowLink® access point can remotely control transmitter parameters such as gain and operating frequencies.
