    Features

    ShowLink Remote Control

    • Enables real-time remote adjustments of all transmitter parameters using a wireless network connection between linked Axient transmitters and receivers. Whether performers are on stage in the middle of a show, or off stage waiting for their cue, ShowLink lets engineers make crucial changes to their transmitter settings - without ever  leaving the control booth.
    • Remote frequency changes, gain adjustments, RF mute enabling, RF output power adjustments, and more are all possible over the ShowLink network. Simply add a ShowLink Access Point to any Axient network and instantaneous wireless transmitter control is realized over a wide coverage area for up to 16 transmitters. Additional Access Points can be used to extend coverage area and increase the number of supported channels. Real-time wireless remote control, now possible with ShowLink. Only from Shure.

    Spectrum Management

    • The Axient Spectrum Manager offers precision wideband scanning and on-board compatible frequency calculation, as well as backup frequency monitoring, ranking and deployment - all on demand. The Spectrum Manager not only captures a detailed scan of your venue and displays it graphically, it can also listen in on a particular signal or store the data from a site survey to be used later.
    • Together with Shure Wireless Workbench 6 software, Axient Spectrum Management tools open up a rich graphical interface for viewing the RF world and choosing the optimal frequencies for all wireless channels on a production.

    Frequency Diversity

    • Unparalleled in wireless microphone technology, Frequency Diversity enables audio transmission from a single source on two independent radio frequencies, providing the best possible protection against interference for the most important performances. With Frequency Diversity mode enabled, the Axient Receiver continuously analyzes signal quality and uses both frequencies to provide optimized audio on a single channel.
    • With two independent RF signals transmitting the same audio, the presence of direct RF interference on one frequency causes zero interruption. Instead of producing annoying dropouts or audio artifacts, the receiver seamlessly and automatically switches to the other frequency, delivering clean, uninterrupted audio.

    Interference Detection & Avoidance

    • Interference can come from anywhere - other wireless microphones, intercoms, digital devices - wreaking havoc with the frequencies selected to make the show happen. Axient receivers are equipped with sensitive interference detection circuitry that alerts users when a signal is compromised.
    • In the event of signal degradation, Axient Interference Avoidance technology enables engineers to move to a clean, compatible frequency  - manually or automatically. Respond to an alert by either manually selecting a new frequency, or, when used in conjunction with the Axient Spectrum Manager, back-up frequencies are constantly monitored, ranked, and deployed automatically the instant interference is detected.
    • Interference Detection and Avoidance delivers the confidence of knowing that no matter what happens, interference will not ruin the show. Only Axient can provide such an incredible level of control and flexibility.

    Power Management

    • Axient Power Management provides a comprehensive suite of smart, high performance batteries and chargers, with detailed visibility of critical battery parameters.
      • View remaining battery power accurate to within 15 minutes on transmitters, receivers and WWB6
      • Monitor percentage of capacity and time to full charge, visible on the Rack Mount Charging Station and WWB6
