Shure showcases micro wireless mic at AES
Shure showcased its new UR1M Micro-Bodypack at AES last weekend. Offering high-quality wireless audio in an ultra-compact package that is about half the size of most standard body packs and weighs just 3oz with two AAA batteries, the UR1M can be easily concealed.
Operating with the company’s UHF-R wireless microphone system using the latest version of Wireless Workbench software, the subminiature device uses the patented Shure Audio Reference Companding technology to deliver high-quality audio and a 60MHz to 75MHz tuning range (region dependent).
Tunable in 25kHz increments and providing a sum total of up to 3000 selectable frequencies, the UR1M additionally offers selectable 10mW or 50mW RF power, up to nine hours of battery life, audio level metering and a backlit LCD display.
