Shure rolls out third-party integration and control with Aaton Digital

Shure rolls out third-party integration and control with Aaton Digital.

In June, Shure launched the ADX5D – Axient Digital Dual-Channel Portable Wireless Receiver. Now, users can enhance its workflow experience with ADX5D’s latest firmware update (1.3.26), including third-party integration and control with select portable mixers and recorders from Sound Devices and Aaton Digital.

The new third-party integration and feature set lets sound mixers control and monitor the ADX5D from their mix position for functions like scanning and deploying frequencies to receiver channels, adjusting receiver output gain, monitoring transmitter battery life, and more.

Shure will be joined by Sound Devices and Aaton Digital for two individual webinars demonstrating third-party integration and the additional features included in Axient Digital ADX5D’s latest firmware update at these dates/times:

“We’re proud to offer our ADX5D customers a reliable means of integrating their portable, wireless solutions with the cutting-edge mixers and recorders from Aaton and Sound Devices. With the introduction of third-party integration and control, our goal is to bring the superior RF performance, spectral efficiency, and transparent audio quality of Axient Digital to more audio professionals who are pushing boundaries in the film and broadcast industry,” shared Shure Associate Product Manager, Adi Neves.

“We were very happy to collaborate with Shure, both in Chicago and in Europe, on integration between our devices. ADX5D fits right into our HYDRA system and communicates with our Cantar recorder-mixers. Our products have been used successfully for the sound of many of the last Oscars movies, notably ‘Sound of Metal,’ Oscar winner for best sound 2021, awarded to Philippe Bladh,” noted Aaton Digital CEO, Jacques Delacoux.

“Sound Devices is excited to have collaborated with our friends at Shure on SuperSlot integration for the Shure ADX5D receiver and 8-Series mixer-recorders,” said Sound Devices RF Applications Engineer, Gary Trenda. “We’re encouraged by the continued adoption of the SuperSlot protocol by manufacturers across our industry. Having easy access to commonly used Axient Digital functions on the color screen of the 8-Series will streamline system set up and workflows. Being able to quickly scan, view signal quality with history, monitor battery life, and adjust settings makes the 8-Series and Axient Digital a powerful combo.”
