Shure discontinued the UHF-R system?
« on: September 05, 2017, 05:01:07 pm »

Thought that system would be around for awhile, apparently the ULX4Q and Axient is taking off.. With the new Axient digital, do you still have to go take their class?

UHF R is now end-of-life and when existing inventory is depleted it will no longer be available.  I don't know about any training requirements for Axient but think that in general, training is a Good Thing.

UHF-R is being discontinued, yes.

Axient Digital is the replacement line, the currently just released version that doesn't have remote control of the transmitters. So it's more like super ULX-D with a wider tuning range and better receivers.

If you are proficient in operating UHF-R and/or ULX-D, then you'll have no problem figuring out Axient Digital very quickly.  The current handhelds and bodypacks aren't Showlink compatible (remote control), so they synchronize via infra-red just like UHF-R and ULX-D.  When the Showlink versions are released, the system has options for much more complex operation, for which taking the class would be wise.

It's worth noting that the current TX versions are near the UHF-R price point, while the future Showlink versions will likely be closer to Axient prices.
