Good things must come to an end -- Shure 600 MHz rebates

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Shure's 600 MHz wireless microphone rebates are scheduled to end on October 31! 

Due to changes at the FCC, operation of wireless microphone systems in the 600 MHz range (frequency ranges 616–653 MHz and 663–698 MHz) will become illegal by July 2020, and in many areas, use of the 600 MHz systems will become impractical due to interference, as soon as 4th quarter 2018. 

Since April 2017, Shure has been offering generous rebates to help you make the conversion from your existing 600 MHz wireless microphone systems to Shure brand wireless systems, but as October 31, 2018, that rebate program will be ending.  More information on rebate amounts, deadlines, qualifications click here

The big question on everyone's minds is whether the rebates will continue or be extended.  The answer is that we have no way of knowing.  Yesterday, when we asked Shure's sales representative about the situation, he said that people "might not want to wait", and that he has no idea what November 1 will bring. 

If we had to guess, some form of Shure 600 MHz rebate will continue since other manufacturer's rebates don't end on the same schedule, but do you want to take that chance?  The current rebate is $500 per channel for ULXD and $250 for QLXD, both of which are more generous than other manufacturers. 

If you're gambling on the continuation, we'll both know an answer on or around November 1.  Also consider than both ULXD and QLXD have been very hard to get this year, so if thie rebate is costing Shure "too much", this would be the opportunity to make a change. 

We do not anticipate the rebates being increased, so there's only one direction they can go, if the rebates are not extended in the same amounts. If you need new Shure wireless systems, there has never been a better time than the present.

ProPresenter Users - do NOT upgrade to Mac OS 10.13.4 -- yet

Attention macOS Users that use USB Display adaptors!

Do NOT upgrade to MacOS 10.13.4 at this time if you use a USB Display Adaptor (usually used for Stage Display outputs in ProPresenter). DisplayLink, the company that makes the chips that are used in the vast majority of the USB display adaptors that are made, released the following on March 30, 2018:

"We have become aware that installing macOS release Version 10.13.4 will cause DisplayLink connected displays to go blank after the OS upgrade, with the current DisplayLink driver [4.1] installed. Functionality such as Ethernet and audio, where implemented, is unaffected. We have alerted Apple to this issue and are working hard to find a resolution. These features continue to work as expected in 10.13.3"

Note that this is NOT a ProPresenter issue, but rather an issue with the driver that works with the USB adaptors.

Until just this year, we've been limited to offering engraved rack panels with basic logos, and text file type layouts.  If it looked good in Ariel and with a 2D logo, we could do it.

What others say

Thanks for the great job you all have done!  Thanks for suggesting and sticking with the digital board. The benefits are awesome.

We are so pleased with having great sound, lighting tech...etc in the building.  I have been in many new churches where the sound is squeaking, squawking etc. and it ruins the services.  We have had few to no glitches. There are still many things that I would like to do.

By the way the remote clicker for the Power Point worked great, reached from the platform to the back of the room.

I am looking forward to continuing a working relationship and a growing friendship.
