New in-ear monitoring from LD Systems

LD Systems is unveiling its new U500 in-ear monitoring system at this year’s Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt.

Aimed at bands, musicians and rental firms U500 systems are available in a variety of formats, with and without headphones.

U500 in-ear monitoring systems are equipped with switchable transmitting power of 2 mW, 10 mW and 30 mW in order to meet country-specific regulations and be fully functional throughout Europe and worldwide. With their signal transmission over a distance of up to 100 metres, the systems provide unrestricted freedom of movement in almost any application, LD says.

96 receiver channels are available to provide mono or stereo operation as required. For optimum user comfort, the in-ear mix can be adjusted to taste via a 3-band EQ with parametric mids. In addition, the U500 systems facilitate personalised user name entry and storage of preferred settings in ten preset memory locations. Depending on the frequency band, up to twelve systems can be operated simultaneously.

In order to ensure legibility both on dark stages and in sunlight, the transmitter and receiver units are equipped with a high-contrast OLED display. Using two AA batteries, the pocket receiver has an operating time of up to 10 hours.

The U500 IEM Series is available in five versions and a rack-mount kit and a rugged transport case are supplied for everyday use “on the road”.
