At InfoComm 2018, Shure announced the latest version of its Designer software application that provides system integrators, designers, and sales staff improved workflow efficiency to configure Shure products during design and build cycles—offline and online. Designer 3.1 provides users with a single software tool to design and commission system installations, enhancing the performance and usability of Shure products, while reducing onsite configuration time. The latest software gives users one place to design, route, and configure.
“With this latest iteration of Designer, AV professionals will be able to better determine the suitable device type and count remotely when creating configurations,” said Katie Farine, Product Owner at Shure. “Users will gain better control over their designs with the ability to import floor plans and design audio coverage and routing while also having the capability to create and reuse room templates across multiple locations.”
Designer 3.1 provides support across an expanded portfolio of Shure products, including the Microflex® Advance™ MXA910 Ceiling Array and MXA310 Table Array Microphones, IntelliMix® P300 Audio Conferencing Processor, and ANIUSB-Matrix USB Audio Network Interface. As one single tool, the software enables smooth synchronization in real-time with audio routing between Shure networked products. Users can manage device presets at a location level to more easily configure and load settings for multipurpose or combinable spaces. Device passwords and Shure Network Audio Encryption can also be enabled for an entire location at a time, making managing security settings across multiple devices easier than ever.
“With expanded support of Shure networked microphones and signal processing products, Designer 3.1 will be especially appealing to users who are currently designing and configuring Shure’s latest equipment,” continued Farine. “The Designer software update improves workflow efficiencies to make our users’ jobs easier.”
Designer 3.1 can be downloaded for free, later this year, on any computer running Windows 7, 8.1, or 10.
