Studio Technologies has announced the latest addition to its STcontroller application feature, VenueView.

The STcontroller personal computer application offers a quick and easy means of displaying and real-time monitoring of key operating parameters associated with a number of different Studio Technologies’ Dante-compatible products. Its focus is to assist support personnel who are responsible for the correct operation of multiple announcer’s consoles (talent interfaces) and related devices that are being used by ‘on-air’ personnel in broadcast and production applications.

The latest release of STcontroller for Windows, available on the Studio Technologies website, adds the VenueView capability. Each VenueView group allows up to eight different devices to be monitored in a single user-defined menu, with multiple groups capable of being simultaneously monitored. Additional capabilities are planned for future VenueView releases.

Studio Technologies STcontroller VenueView‘VenueView is ideal for technical personnel who need to monitor audio coming from and going to multiple Studio Technologies’ devices either locally, or spread across different venues,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes. ‘It is a new tool for confirming live event audio performance.’

Users can assign up to eight devices to each ‘venue’ with multiple venues active at the same time. Each VenueView user has the ability to independently create their desired venues. This allows one user to view a set of devices on one PC, while another user can monitor the same devices, a completely different set of devices, or a combination of devices on a different PC. This offers a high level of flexibility for personnel monitoring audio onsite and at a remote location (the latter performance requires the use of other remote access software).

Once a venue or venues are established, real-time audio levels and signal present indications from the related devices can be simultaneously monitored on the same screen. If a configuration change is necessary, clicking on a specific device’s VenueView window will open its STcontroller configuration menu. This allows immediate adjustment of parameters such as mic preamplifier gain, headphone monitoring and pushbutton operation.

The STcontroller application is available free on the Studio Technologies website. The program requires a minimal amount of personal computer resources. Upon execution, STcontroller will scan the associated local area network (LAN) and automatically identify compatible Dante devices.

VenueView is currently only available in the STcontroller for Windows version and supports Studio Technologies’ Models 207A, 214A, 215A, 216A, 232, 234, 236, 381 and 5418. It is expected that future versions of VenueView will add support for Models 204, 205, 206, 209 and 5205.
