Le logiciel Wireless Workbench 6 de Shure est le gestionnaire de systèmes sans fil le plus complet actuellement disponible

  • Gestion de l'inventaire
    • Des presets permettent désormais aux utilisateurs d'enregistrer des ensembles de paramètres dans un fichier afin de les appliquer rapidement à un ou plusieurs appareils sélectionnés.
  • Coordination de fréquences
    • Les niveaux maximum d'un scan de fréquences peuvent être gérés et classés avec une plus grande flexibilité et pour des profils d'appareils plus complets.
    • Les espacements des produits d'intermodulation peuvent être ignorés pour des groupes de fréquences pendant la coordination de fréquences.
    • Un ordre de coordination de fréquences sur mesure est maintenant possible dans l'onglet coordination de fréquences.
  • Surveillance temps réel
    • Timeline est un nouvel utilitaire permettant d'enregistrer au fil du temps les informations importantes d'un canal, comme le niveau RF, le niveau audio, la détection d'interférence, l'intensité du signal ShowLink®, et plus. Cette fonction enregistre les données pour des durées prolongées avec un stockage efficace du fichier, ce qui permet avec la plus grande précison aux utilisateurs d'archiver et de vérifier la performance de leurs systèmes sans fil. 
  • Réseau d'entreprise
    • La fonction Remote Device Connection permet aux utilisateurs de se connecter avec le logiciel Wireless Workbench aux appareils via une passerelle réseau.
    • La fonction Access Control permet aux appareils d'être protègés contre les changements non autorisés via le logiciel Shure.

Le logiciel Wireless Workbench 6 de Shure est le gestionnaire de systèmes sans fil le plus complet actuellement disponible. Il contient une interface détaillée permettant de gérer sur le réseau chaque aspect d’une représentation, du planning qui précède le spectacle à la surveillance pendant la représentation en direct.

Avant le spectacle, Wireless Workbench 6 utilise des fichiers de balayage enregistrés pour fournir des détails sur l’environnement RF hors site, et inclut également une base de données de canaux TV en fonction du lieu afin d’aider au processus de planification. Lorsqu’il est connecté au gestionnaire de spectre Axient, Wireless Workbench effectue en direct des balayages et analyses de RF, avec surimpressions graphiques détaillées et marqueurs de périphériques sur un tracé de fréquences en haute résolution.

Une coordination exhaustive des fréquences utilise les données de balayage, la base de données des canaux TV et des algorithmes de compatibilité évolués pour créer et affecter une liste de fréquences libres viables pour tout nombre de canaux dans un système, ainsi qu’une gestion des fréquences de secours.

Au cours du spectacle, Wireless Workbench 6 permet des ajustements à distance et en direct des équipements en réseau pour des changements instantanés de la fréquence, du gain, de la puissance de sortie RF, et plus encore. Personnalisez les commandes dans une interface de bande de canal familière pour afficher les audiomètres et les vumètres RF, l'autonomie de batterie et le réglage de volume pour chaque canal d’un système sans fil. Des alarmes configurables par l’utilisateur fournissent des options de réaction rapide par voie logicielle afin de résoudre les problèmes d’interférence lors de leur détection, ou sur l’autonomie de la batterie et la puissance du signal RF.

Assurant l’aptitude à coordonner, surveiller et contrôler les systèmes sans fil les plus complexes à partir d’un ordinateur portable, Wireless Workbench 6 libère réellement toute la puissance d’Axient.

  • Fixed an issue in the Frequency Band Conversion Tool where devices previously set to “do not convert” were not able to be converted in one scenario.

Notes

  • When using the in-app update function, in order to successfully install Wireless Workbench, you must run it as an administrator. Consult your IT department if you have questions.
  • Opening show files created with older versions of Wireless Workbench may result in the Settings Conflicts dialog opening once the file has loaded. This is due to newly supported hardware parameters that have been introduced with updated firmware versions. To maintain all settings from the show file, select "Keep all settings from: Wireless Workbench."
  • Alerts logged when devices first come online may list device parameters and their values as they are being discovered even though the parameter values themselves have not changed.

Known Issues

  • When using multiple spectrum managers, if they have the same device ID, any combo box where you specify a link between receiver and spectrum managers will not list all available spectrum managers. To resolve this, provide a unique device ID for all spectrum managers.
  • ULX-D receivers running firmware version 2.0.28 or earlier may trigger a Settings Conflict when rediscovered after updating their firmware to version 2.1 or later. There is no issue with the device—there was simply a new property added in version 2.1. To dismiss the alert, resolve the Settings Conflict by selecting the properties you wish to keep.
  • Timeline System Events displayed for Active Transmitter Online for ULXD6/8 transmitters do not always include Transmitter Device ID in the event description.
  • SLX and ULX frequencies in Master List mode cannot be manually entered in the Coordination Workspace. They can, however, be coordinated and analyzed.
