Audio-Technica has announced a new version of its Wireless Manager software, a Mac OS/Windows application for remote configuration, control, monitoring, spectrum management and frequency coordination of compatible A-T devices.
With connectivity for the Audio-Technica 5000 Series wireless microphone system and the new 3000 Series featuring network control and monitoring, the software package offers a range of control and management functions of networked devices, grouped into three tabs: Device List, Frequency Coordination and Monitor.
Wireless Manager’s Device List auto-discovers connected compatible A-T hardware and allows users to populate a device list of Audio-Technica and other manufacturers’ wireless systems.
The Frequency Coordination function delivers A-T wireless system users powerful spectrum management tools, allowing real time spectrum scanning via connected network enabled receivers, or the option of using the pre-loaded television channel database for off-site planning.
Based on spectrum availability, Wireless Manager quickly provides an estimate of available channels and uses a proprietary algorithm to automatically create an efficient, interference-free channel plan and then pushes that plan to all connected network A-T devices.
Users have the option of setting manual frequency exclusions to avoid prohibited frequency bands and other wireless systems in operation at a given location.
On A-T network wireless systems enabled for Wireless Manager, the Monitor tab allows live monitoring of connected systems with the option of filtering the displayed devices by assigned tag groups.
