Shure Unveils Designer 3.1 System Configuration Software

systemon_hero_screenshot_monitor-cmyk@3x28dab3210c8663e39143ff00009d7e70.jpg

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.

QSC expands AcousticDesign™ Series with new Transformer-less Surface-Mount Loudspeaker Option

q_spk_ad-s6_img_hero_front.jpg

QSC introduces the new AD-S6, a transformer-less surface mount 6.5-inch two-way loudspeaker. As part of the AcousticDesign™ Series, this new loudspeaker is ideal for foreground and background music (BGM/FGM) applications, as well as installations specifically requiring higher SPL foreground sound reinforcement.

“The AD-S6 is an ideal addition to our Premium Business Music solutions that were specifically designed to meet the high-performance needs of foreground applications,” said Travis Nie, Product Manager, Installed Loudspeakers, QSC. “We are excited to expand our popular AcousticDesign Series with a loudspeaker that is nearly identical to AD-S6T, but with the AD-S6 we lowered the cost by removing the transformer and providing 16 ohm nominal impedance, making it ideal for use in low impedance distributed systems.”

The AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers deliver pristine audio reproduction for installations requiring a refined audio experience, combining exceptional clarity, performance, coverage and aesthetics for installed sound applications. This line includes a wide range of sizes and models that deliver consistent and balanced sonic characteristics, and share the same high-end aesthetic quality enabling users to mix-and-match enclosure types. Available in black or white, they also include the patented X-Mount™ mounting system providing unprecedented ease-of-installation that minimizes commissioning time and expense.

Features

  • 6.5-inch weather treated woofer

  • 105° conical DMT coverage

  • Maximum peak SPL 116 dB (16 Ω)

  • DMT (Directivity Matched Transition™) ensures smooth, uniform frequency response over the coverage area

  • X-Mount™ system enables the loudspeaker to be easily installed and deployed at a variety of angles with no slippage over time

  • Advanced voicing filter sets using QSC Intrinsic Correction™, available through either Q-SYS processing or CXD amplifier platforms

  • Lightweight ABS enclosures offer long-term durability and lasting good looks

  • Sealed input panel cover and powder coated aluminum grilles for added weather resistance

  • Meets IEC60529 IP-54 for dust and splash resistance

  • Available in black (RAL 9011) or white (RAL 9010)

Shure's Twin:Plex - The Next Stage in Sound

Shure has introduced the Twinplex series lavalier microphones and headsets. The sub-miniature wearable microphones for theater, presentation and broadcasting applications feature a new dual-diaphragm design.

The Shure Twinplex series consists of four lavalier microphones (TL45, TL46, TL47, TL48) and one headset microphone (TL53). Each of the new products is available in different colors. Some offer a choice of connectors. The microphones feature a new design with two parallel diaphragms, which Shure says is the most complex condenser capsule that the company has ever produced. According to Shure, the design delivers “bigger low frequencies and a smoother top end”. The compact form factor is achieved by placing the circuit board between the two diaphragms. For sweat resistance, the mics feature a micro-molded frequency response cap with a super-hydrophobic coating, which Shure claims offers ten times the sweat resistance of uncoated caps. The Twinplex series microphones also come with newly developed cables designed for exceptional durability and flexibility.

Shure TL45

The TL45 lavalier mic is designed for theater applications and includes interchangeable caps. It is available in four colors and comes with a LEMO connector.

The high-sensitivity TL46 delivers additional volume and a high signal-to-noise ratio. The TL46 comes in four colors and with a choice of LEMO or MTQG connectors. The caps are interchangeable.

Shure TL46

Shure TL47

Shure advertises the TL47 as a universal option for many different applications. This model offers the most connector choices to accommodate a wide variety of body-worn transmitters (LEMO, MTQG, MDOT, XLR, or none). The TL47 features interchangeable caps and can be ordered in four colors.

Shure TL48

tl48-white-LEMO.53c7fd9.jpg

The frequency response of the TL48 offers a mid-range boost designed for capturing dialogue in film and TV applications. This model has a fixed, non-interchangeable cap. The TL48 comes in three colors and with a choice of connectors (LEMO, MTQG, MDOT, XLR, or none).

Shure TH53

th53-tan-mTQG.ef26caf.jpg

The TH53 headset microphone features a Twinplex capsule mounted on an ultralight headset frame. Shure says that the frame’s clutch system allows for quick adjustments and mounting of the microphone on either side. The TH53 offers a choice of three colors and four connector options (LEMO, MTQG, MDOT, or none).
