AS VEGAS (April 16, 2012)—Shure Incorporated announced today that it has introduced a new portable wireless system, FP Wireless. With intuitive, flexible components, including portable receivers and XLR plug-on transmitters, FP Wireless lends independent videographers, electronic field production (EFP) producers, and others in the broadcast and media production industry the ability to confidently capture crystal-clear audio in demanding environments.

“Understanding that portability and reliability are essential for videographers and independent producers, we designed the new FP Wireless as a super lightweight and ultra-durable product that these users can depend on in even the most extreme environments,” said Erik Vaveris, Category Director for Wireless products at Shure. “It also allows the user to set up quickly with just two presses of a button…the first to find a clear frequency and the second to sync with the transmitter.”

Featuring Shure’s industry-leading wireless audio technologies, FP Wireless incorporates Shure’s patented Audio Reference CompandingTM for ultra-low noise, crystal-clear audio, Automatic Frequency Selection for locating and identifying open frequencies at the touch of a button, and Automatic Transmitter Setup for instantly syncing the transmitter to the receiver frequency. FP series components include a lightweight, portable receiver and XLR plug-on, bodypack and handheld transmitters.

FP Wireless products are powered by two AA batteries, giving users the ultimate mobility, free from burdensome power cords. Other features include: compatibility with up to 20 systems simultaneously, Diversity Antennas for consistent reception of signal transmission, XLR and 3.5mm cable receiver output options, single transmitter and dual transmitter system options, GSM immunity in the bodypack transmitters, and compatibility with Shure SLX® Wireless components.

“Shure has a patented predictive diversity algorithm that enables the FP5 to provide extremely reliable performance even though it is a very compact receiver,” added Vaveris. “It offers better signal stability than other single-antenna receivers. Regardless of the application and use — from reality television to event videography shoots to one-on-one interviews, all of the features combine to make FP Wireless the most rugged and reliable system in its class,” added Vaveris.
