With a single £100,000 investment in August, Aztec Event Services became Britain’s first company to take delivery of Shure’s very latest range of ULX-D digital wireless system receivers and microphones. This investment is part of Aztec’s undertaking to complete its Digital Switchover and entailed replacing its entire wireless microphone stock with digital microphones and receivers.
Aztec’s operations director Steve Colesell explained how this need to replace stock due to the digital switchover became an opportunity to make a significant investment in new technology. “We’ve always had Shure microphones but were leaning towards other brands. Then we were shown a pre-production sample of Shure’s ULX-D system, and it was immediately clear that this was the product for us”.
These formidable systems offer greatly improved features as Colesell continues, “Of course Shure audio quality didn’t need questioning, but with this new system we can offer our clients more than eighty digital, encrypted channels with greater range, clarity and reliability, whilst cutting down on setup times both in the warehouse and on-site”.
