CEIBS upgrades to Shure QLX-D
CHINA: Having relied on Shure’s analogue wireless series to facilitate its top-tier MBA, PhD and Executive Education programmes, the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) has chosen to upgrade the existing system to the manufacturer’s QLX-D digital wireless system.
Co-founded by the Chinese government and the European Commission, the school has been ranked by the Financial Times as the number one business school in Asia for six consecutive years. It was also the first in China to receive accreditations from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). The upgrade included the installation of 96 channels of QLX-D to be used across 24 classrooms.
Mr Cheng from the audio management department recalled that, ‘due to the high concentration of classrooms in one area and their close proximity, we required a system with multiple frequency bands. This caused quite some difficulties when we researched potential systems for our wireless microphone upgrade. QLX-D turned out to be the ideal solution. With its high spectral efficiency and wide bandwidth, it’s very easy to implement a large number of channels.
‘Thanks to its ethernet connectivity, QLX-D was extremely simple to set up and we could effortlessly connect all the receivers,’ continued Mr Cheng. ‘The networked, automatic channel scanning also makes it very easy for us to find and assign open frequencies across all our receivers, and we can quickly deploy them to the transmitters with the IR sync function. This solved a lot of our audio interference issues.’
The audio management department at CEIBS is also making use of the Shure Wireless Workbench 6 control software to manage the entire system and to carry out advanced frequency coordination.
‘With its outstanding wireless capabilities, QLX-D is a great solution for our campus setup,’ concluded Mr Cheng. ‘We’ve happily used Shure for a long time and its professional wireless systems fit perfectly into our technologically advanced facilities.’
