By PSW Staff • June 11, 2018 A user working with new Shure Designer 3.1 software. New Shure 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. “With this latest iteration of Designer, AV professionals will be able to better determine the suitable device type and count remotely when creating configurations,” states Katie Farine, product wwner 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 a 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, simplifying the management of security settings across multiple devices. “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,” continues 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.
