Shure has revealed ShurePlus Channels, an iOS based mobile device application that enables audio professionals real-time remote monitoring and controlling of several Shure wireless systems such as 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.
This basic version to monitor the systems is free. Through additional in-app purchases, users can further unlock the ability to remotely control their Shure wireless system and make changes to channel parameters. For a small one-time fee per wireless product line, 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.
When connected to your dedicated Wi-Fi network, ShurePlus Channels automatically discovers compatible Shure hardware, offering remote visibility to critical channel information like RF signal strength, audio levels, transmitter battery life, and other key attributes. When combined with ShowLink Remote Control for Axient, ShurePlus Channels allows for simultaneous adjustment of transmitter and receiver settings.
The ShurePlus Channels iOS app will be available for download from the iTunes App Store in 62 EMEA countries this summer.
