Audio-Technica has announced the version 1.1.1 update of its Wireless Manager software, available for immediate download. Wireless Manager is a Mac OS/Windows application for remote configuration, control, monitoring, spectrum management, and frequency coordination of compatible Audio-Technica wireless devices. For those customers who have A-T Wireless Manager previously installed the software will be automatically updated.
Updated features in version 1.1.1 include improved usability, layout and control; enhanced scrolling capability; improved visibility of all frequency coordinated devices; updated and expanded channel list reports; upgraded user tools; and minor bug fixes. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1, 10; macOS High Sierra (Version 10.13), macOS Mojave (Version 10.14).
A-T Wireless Manager software is compatible with all wireless devices operating in the UHF spectrum. When used with Audio-Technica 5000 Series (3rd Gen) and 3000 Series (4th Gen) with network control and monitoring, the software can coordinate and control all connected systems. The software can also interface with and monitor the latest 3000 Series networked chargers.
A-T’s updated Wireless Manager software (version 1.1.1) is available for download from Audio-Technica’s website. More information on Audio-Technica wireless solutions are available here.
Wireless Manager offers a broad range of control and management functions of networked devices, grouped into three tabs: Device List, Frequency Coordination and Monitor. The software’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. From the Device List tab, users can edit/modify transmitter and receiver parameters of network-enabled Audio-Technica devices, including projects created offline. Devices can be assigned tags for easy filtering for frequency coordination and monitoring purposes.
The Frequency Coordination function delivers A-T wireless system users powerful spectrum management tools, allowing real time spectrum scanning via connected network enabled receivers. 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. Parameters monitored include AF, RF, battery, transmit power and more. Wireless Manager allows users to assign alerts for performance values of parameters such as signal strength and battery level and offers event logging. Wireless Manager also includes a Tool Box function offering walk test, max simultaneous channel calculation and cable loss calculation functionality.
