Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0Symetrix has launched SymNet Composer 3.0, an update to its open-architecture design software that builds on the native support of Dante media networking technology for third-party devices in earlier releases, and adds support for Shure and Audio-Technica.

Version 3 allows integrators to streamline set-up procedures through network discovery, Dante signal routing, and audio set-up of supported third-party devices from the two new manufacturers, alongside Attero Tech and Stewart Audio with a single piece of software.

‘The previous version of Composer was genuinely groundbreaking because it meant less software to keep up-to-date and less jumping between different items of sofware,’ says Symetrix Senior Product Manager, Trent Wagner. ‘Since launch, integrators have consistently told us that it is saving them both time and money. With SymNet Composer 3.0, we are able to extend this ease of configuration to several other market-leading products and make it possible for a Dante-based system to be configured quickly and easily from input to amplifier through a single software program.’

For Shure users, SymNet Composer 3.0 brings the MXWAPT4 and MXWAPT8 acess point transceivers from Shure’s Microflex Wireless range into the SymNet fold.

‘Symetrix provides a great conference room solution with its SymNet Radius and Edge line of DSP processors, and we think they pair nicely with our Microflex Wireless microphone system which excels in that application environment,’ says Shure Incorporated Director of Networked Audio Systems, Global Product Maagement, Chad Wiggins. ‘The audio and control interoperability of these two products gives our integrators a powerful tool to easily design flexible, feature-rich audio systems.’

SymNet Composer 3.0 also adds native Dante configuration for the ATND971 Dante-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand from Audio-Technica.

‘With the integration of Audio-Technica and Symetrix technologies, the microphone becomes the user interface for the A/V system,’ says Audio-Technica US Sales Engineer, Installed Sound, Gary Dixon. ‘It is able to capture audio, transmit a user button press and provide visual feedback for the end-user – all over category cable using standard networking protocols. This means reducing the equipment specified by the consultant and simplifying the on-site wiring for the installer. The signal routing and control signals can be designed, tested and implemented virtually. Ultimately, an A/V designer can be more creative in controlling how the end-user interacts with the system.’

The new version of SymNet Composer also includes a number of Window Management (Composer UI) Framework improvements, allowing pallets to be placed on either side of the screen, resized and nested into tabbed pallets. It is also possible to create menu bars for frequently accessed commands and customise toolbars to keep shortcuts at hand.

‘Our overriding objective at Symetrix is to make integrators’ lives easier, and it is clear that requirement will gain significance as we move into the world of comprehensive A/V networking,’ says Symetrix founder and CEO Dane Butcher. ‘With SymNet Composer 3.0, I believe that we have taken our support of integrators to a new and higher level.’
