Classroom Technology Lectern Wireless Microphone Information and Configuration

Shure wireless microphones were selected as the standard wireless microphones for the ITS supported technology classrooms.  Shure recently discontinued production of the analog wireless receiver and beltpack and replaced it with a digital microphone receiver and beltpack.  While the older microphone receivers will not be removed from existing lecterns, new technology classrooms will not be equipped with the older analog microphone receivers.  All ITS supported technology classrooms are equipped with the newer digital microphone receivers.

We use the Shure SLXD1-=J52 wireless beltpack.

Two microphones commonly used with both the older analog or new digital wireless transmitters are:

  • WL185 - Shure Lavalier Microphone
  • E6OW5T2SL - Countryman E6 Omnidirectional Earset for Shure


Tips while using a wireless microphone with the lectern:

  • For the older style mic receivers:  Located in the lectern, the front of the wireless mic receiver displays the group and channel number for the room.  Each classroom receiver is configured to use a unique group/channel combination to prevent audio "bleed-over" between rooms.  Use the group/channel buttons on the beltpack transmitter or handheld microphone to match the receiver setting to capture/broadcast through the classroom sound system.
  • For the newer style mic receivers: To sync the wireless mic beltpack to the mic receiver in the lectern, hold the IR receiver on the beltpack in front of the IR receiver on the mic receiver and press the "sync" button on the mic receiver.
  • When the wireless microphone/transmitter is on and communicating with the receiver, there will be an "Antenna" icon displayed on the microphone/transmitter LCD screen.
  • The wireless mic mute and audio level can be controlled by the lectern PC.  Additionally, there is a gain knob on the side of the beltpack transmitter and under the battery cover on the handheld microphone that can fine tune the volume level from the wireless microphone.
  • See Additional Covers for Lectern Microphones for information about purchasing replacement windscreen mic covers.
