Stow, OH, April 29, 2021 — Audio-Technica announces the version 1.2.0 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. Customers who have A-T Wireless Manager previously installed will be notified of this new version via in-app messaging.
Updated features in version 1.2.0 include a new multi-point receiver function; improved interface and functionality enhancements; increased compatibility; and minor bug fixes. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1 and 10; and macOS High Sierra (Version 10.13), macOS Mojave (Version 10.14) and macOS Catalina (Version 10.15).
The multi-point receiver function allows a single transmitter to switch between multiple compatible A-T network-enabled receivers that are set apart from one another. The user of the transmitter can pass from one receiver zone to the next, enjoying seamless audio muting and unmuting for wide coverage without the need for a distributed antenna system.
A single transmitter can switch between 10 receivers on a single group. Up to eight multi-point groups can be configured within a single Wireless Manager session. Applications could include large auditoriums/halls, houses of worship, sporting events, education campuses and other venues where installing long RF cable runs with antennas and necessary antenna management could become cumbersome and expensive.
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 1.2.0) is available for download from Audio-Technica’s website. For more information on Audio-Technica wireless solutions, visit https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/d3818d1070ae6be6/index.html.
More about Wireless Manager:
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.
