The transmitters promise to deliver the wireless digital technology with RF stability, encryption, and spectral efficiency.
Wireless microphone developer Q5X and Shure, a professional audio solutions provider, have developed specialised Axient digital-enabled Q5X wireless transmitters.
Developed to directly address ongoing technical challenges plaguing sports organisations, the Axient Digital promises to provide maximum stability, range, and clarity for professional productions that demand flawless execution.
The Axient Digital-Enabled Q5X Wireless Transmitters will benefit sports leagues, broadcasters, and production companies resulting in enhanced audience experience.
Three form factor models feature the latest Axient Digital technology, including the CoachMic, PlayerMic, and AquaMic, which is designed for wet environments such as outdoor functions or water sports.
The new CoachMic captures the coach’s audio for post-production while giving the coach the opportunity to confidently mute the mic for game strategy or other sensitive discussions.
Originally developed for the NBA, the PlayerMic is a flexible bodypack transmitter that is deemed by the NBA to be the safest solution to be worn by the players. PlayerMic features thin, bendable, rubber design to protect players from injury if they fall on it or take a direct hit.
The AquaMic, which is fully submersible, is designed to capture crystal-clear audio in demanding environments such as water sports or buried in the outdoor playing field when players can’t wear them. Rechargeable batteries provide four to 16 hours of life.
Commenting on the transmitters, Jens Rothenburger, Director of Pro Audio Marketing at Shure, said: “With the combination of Q5X and Shure, this is really the best of both worlds. The new Axient digital-enabled Q5X wireless transmitters provide sound engineers and the sports industry with a complete solution in a superior, already-established form factor.”
Paul Johnson, CEO of Q5X, remarked: “Q5X prides itself on developing transmitters to solve difficult wireless audio problems for our customers. Now, we have a proven digital technology that can be placed in literally any form factor.”
