Expanding control for networked wireless audio systems, Shure Incorporated announced the forthcoming release of Wireless Workbench® 6.11, which is now available for download at www.shure.com/software. This latest version includes several new features to help manage every facet of wireless system performance over the network, from pre-show planning to live performance monitoring.
To improve workflow efficiency, Wireless Workbench 6.11 includes inventory batch edits, enabling parameters to be modified for a group of devices or channels at the same time. Users benefit from quick and easy configuration of naming, color-coding, and other parameters for multiple channels.
The Coordination Workspace enables frequency calculations for subsets of wireless inventory before deployment. These coordinations can be saved and recalled for different locations or even specific events within a production. A ranked list of compatible frequencies can be manually assigned to desired channels from this workspace as well.
An improved monitoring interface displays all channels with a common channel strip layout. Channel strips can be customized using the Channel Strip Designer and arranged into various layouts. Multiple channel strip arrangements can be stored in views and used to monitor a customized group of channels.
“Version 6.11 is the biggest release of Wireless Workbench to date,” said Nick Wood, Wireless Category Director. “From batch parameter changes on multiple devices to sandboxed frequency coordination using the new Coordination Workspace, Wireless Workbench 6.11 continues to set the standard for monitoring and control of networked wireless systems. It significantly enhances several Shure wireless products, saving users time and providing solutions requested by our customers.”
Wireless Workbench 6.11 is compatible with the Shure Axient® Wireless Management Network, UHF-R® Wireless Systems, ULX-D® Digital Wireless Systems, QLX-D™ Digital Wireless Systems, and PSM® 1000 Personal Monitoring Systems. The new version is available for download at www.shure.com/software.
Wireless Workbench 6.11 is supported on Windows 7 and 8 as well as Mac OS 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, and 10.10.
