For decades, live events and broadcasting have depended on Shure to help capture and produce the most reliable audio possible. The debut of Shure’s Axient Digital Wireless System took the industry by storm. Today, Axient Digital continues to serve as the standard for crystal-clear audio, RF spectrum stability, workflow control, and scalability. To help bring these unmatched wireless capabilities to new and existing Axient Digital customers, Shure has introduced the Axient Digital ADX5D Portable Receiver - a dual-channel, portable wireless slot receiver that provides superior RF performance, spectral efficiency, and transparent audio quality. The new portable form factor proudly enhances the Axient Digital ecosystem of wireless audio solutions.

ADX5D was born from one simple need: how to translate the superiority of Axient Digital into a portable option. Shure understood there was an industry demand for wireless capabilities that addressed the needs of today’s ever-evolving production environments. Shure also recognized that it needed to innovate in a way that would take Axient Digital beyond the stage, stadiums, and studio broadcast environments. ADX5D is ideal for environments like sports/events broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), film/episodic television, and electronic field production (EFP) - all of which rely on quality location sound. The portable receiver supports the demand for a remote wireless solution that ensures the message is clearly delivered.

“We designed the ADX5D Portable Receiver to incorporate the same innovative wireless technology that Axient Digital is known for, all in a portable form factor for professionals in the field or on-the-go,” said Nick Wood, Senior Wireless Category Director, at Shure. “We took the time to ensure this new addition to the Axient Digital family exceeds the rigors of everyday use and lives up to Shure’s reputation for quality that we’ve earned over the past 96 years.”

Whether a crew is broadcasting a weather report, offsite at a film shoot, or capturing the big game, ADX5D provides top-of-the-line audio and performance. Professionals in film, TV, and ENG now have access to the same audio quality and next-level RF performance that live sound professionals have trusted for years. Additionally, ADX5D is equipped with industry-proven high-performance RF technology, true digital diversity reception, and advanced digital audio technology – all packed into a portable slot form factor.

Key product features include:

“The ADX5D Portable Receiver is an incredible tool to have at my disposal while on set,” said Jon Ailetcher, CAS, Production Sound Mixer on Chicago PD. “We move very fast on our show and with ADX5D I can easily transition from my cart to my bag, whether we’re on location or in the studio, without affecting my workflow.”
