Shure is previewing the latest version of its Wireless Workbench System Control Software.

Version 6.12 sees the addition of features designed to help wireless users better manage and monitor wireless system performance over the network, from pre-show planning through post-performance analysis.

A new logging utility will capture channel status information over time. Information recorded includes RF Level, Antenna Status, Audio Level, Interference, ShowLink, and Battery Level. With optimised data storage, the utility records data from all networked channels for an indefinite amount of time, given sufficient system resources. Capturing and viewing the recorded data enables users to troubleshoot wireless system operation and determine the source of issues, should any arise. Wireless Workbench provides ultimate control over the displayed information, enabling complete customisation of the visualized data to best suit user needs.

Key updates:
· Scan Peak Management to process and classify peaks more accurately within scan data.
· Ignore IMD spacing  associated with a given set of frequencies, to increase alculated frequency counts.
· Customisable Coordination Order adjusts the order in which frequencies are coordinated by dragging and dropping groups of frequencies.

Connecting to devices from a remote location will now be supported with v6.12. With this update, Wireless Workbench 6 can connect to devices outside of a local network, for environments where devices are managed in separate subnets – separate VLANs, floors of an office building, venues in a park – the feature extends monitoring and control functionality beyond the local network for significantly increased flexibility and control.

‘Wireless Workbench has always been about improving the amount of control available to wireless users,’ says Shure’s Ron Hautzinger. ‘The enhanced features in Wireless Workbench 6.12 offer additional control to meet the needs of today's challenging RF environments. By adding the data logging utility, frequency coordination enhancements, and control of remote devices across subnets, v6.12 is the most empowering version of Workbench we've ever made.’

Wireless Workbench v6.12 will be available for download in Q2 2016.
