Description

Spectrum Management: Detailed Scanning, Coordination, and Visualization of the RF World

Introducing a new level of RF management: Axient Spectrum Management tools make clearing the air effortless. Providing detailed RF spectrum scans in rich visual displays, along with compatible frequency coordination for even the highest channel counts, Axient simplifies complex RF environments.

Until now, quickly finding a clean frequency that is ready to use could involve a variety of calculation and scanning tools, along with careful analysis and manual programming. 

With Axient, all that has changed. The Axient Spectrum Manager offers precision wideband scanning and on-board compatible frequency calculation, as well as backup frequency monitoring, ranking and deployment – all on demand. The Spectrum Manager not only captures a detailed scan of your venue and displays it graphically, it can also listen in on a particular signal or store the data from a site survey to be used later.

Together with Shure Wireless Workbench 6 software, Axient Spectrum Management tools open up a rich graphical interface for viewing the RF world and choosing the optimal frequencies for all wireless channels on a production.

Interference Detection & Avoidance: Move to a clear, compatible frequency when interference strikes

Don’t just accept RF interference. Avoid it. Interference Detection and Avoidance provides alerts when RF interference occurs, and allows the system to move to a clear and compatible frequency within milliseconds, making even major interference issues nearly undetectable. Interference can come from anywhere - other wireless microphones, intercoms, digital devices – wreaking havoc with the frequencies selected to make the show happen. Axient receivers are equipped with sensitive interference detection circuitry that alerts users when a signal is compromised.

In the event of signal degradation, Axient Interference Avoidance technology enables engineers to move to a clean, compatible frequency - manually or automatically. Respond to an alert by either manually selecting a new frequency, or, when used in conjunction with the Axient Spectrum Manager, back-up frequencies are constantly monitored, ranked, and deployed automatically the instant interference is detected

Interference Detection and Avoidance delivers the confidence of knowing that no matter what happens, interference will not ruin the show. Only Axient can provide such an incredible level of control and flexibility.

Frequency Diversity: Seamless, uninterrupted audio in the face of direct interference.

(Because great performances can’t be interfered with.)
Frequency Diversity simultaneously transmits on two separate frequencies to ensure seamless, uninterrupted audio for mission-critical channels.

Unprecedented in wireless microphone technology, Frequency Diversity enables audio transmission from a single source on two independent radio frequencies. With Frequency Diversity mode enabled, the Axient Receiver continuously analyzes signal quality and uses both frequencies to provide optimized audio on a single channel.

With two frequencies transmitting the same audio, the presence of direct RF interference on one frequency causes zero interruption. Instead of producing annoying dropouts or audio artifacts, the receiver seamlessly and automatically switches to the other frequency, delivering clean, uninterrupted audio.

Showlink Remote Control: Real-Time Remote Transmitter Adjustments

Chasing down performers to make changes to their wireless microphone settings is now a thing of the past. ShowLink™ Remote Control provides real-time remote control of all transmitter parameters, from gain adjustments to on-the-fly frequency changes.

ShowLink™ Remote Control enables real-time remote adjustments of all transmitter parameters using a wireless network connection between linked Axient transmitters and receivers. Whether performers are on stage in the middle of a show, or off stage waiting for their cue, ShowLink lets engineers make crucial changes to their transmitter settings - without ever leaving the control booth.

Remote frequency changes, gain adjustments, RF mute enabling, RF output power adjustments, and more are all possible over the ShowLink network. Simply add a ShowLink Access Point to any Axient network and instantaneous wireless transmitter control is realized over a wide coverage area for up to 16 transmitters. Additional Access Points can be used to extend coverage area and increase the number of supported channels. Real-time wireless remote control, now possible with ShowLink. Only from Shure.

Advanced Power Management: Axient’s smart, rugged, and reliable suite of batteries and chargers

The Axient rechargeable power system sets new standards for real-time monitoring and lifecycle management of batteries and chargers. Its suite of batteries and chargers are rugged, modular, networkable, and provide real-time intelligence about power levels, charge status, and overall battery health.

Advanced Power Management provides a comprehensive suite of smart, high performance batteries and chargers, with detailed visibility of critical battery parameters.

  • View remaining battery power accurate to within 15 minutes on transmitters, receivers and WWB6
  • Monitor percentage of capacity and time to full charge, visible on the Rack Mount Charging Station and WWB6
  • Track battery health using charging cycle count and percentage of original capacity

Axient batteries seamlessly and securely lock into the transmitter body. Advanced battery chemistry provides up to 10 hours of run-time with zero-memory effect. Batteries can be charged to 50% capacity in one hour and to full capacity in three hours.

Charging options start with the Rack Mount Charging Station, which offers touring-ready battery storage and charging solution with comprehensive status display. Configurable for up to 8 bodypack or handheld batteries, it provides easy metering of all battery status parameters on the front panel display, and is fully networkable for monitoring of all charging status parameters via WWB6. Portable chargers are a compact alternative that allows convenient charging anytime, anywhere.

Wireless Workbench 6: Comprehensive event management and control software

Sweeping functionality that optimizes the power of Axient. WWB6 features an enhanced graphic user interface, tailored to support the breakthroughs Axient provides in advanced RF spectrum plotting, comprehensive frequency coordination, and live performance monitoring.

Shure Wireless Workbench 6 software is the most comprehensive wireless system control available. It provides a rich interface to manage every facet of a performance over the network, from pre-show planning to live performance monitoring.

Before the show, Wireless Workbench 6 utilizes saved scan files to provide detail about the RF environment from off-site, and also includes a database of TV channels based on location to help with the planning process. When connected to the Axient Spectrum Manager, Wireless Workbench performs live RF scans and analysis, with detailed graphic overlays and device markers on a high-resolution frequency plot.

Comprehensive frequency coordination uses the scan data, TV channel database, and advanced compatibility algorithms to create and assign a list of clean, viable frequencies for any number of channels in a system, plus backup frequency management.

During the show, Wireless Workbench 6 enables live remote adjustments to networked hardware for instant changes to frequency, gain, RF output power, and more. Customize controls in a familiar channel strip interface to show audio and RF meters, battery life, and volume control for each channel of a wireless system. Configurable user alerts provide quick response options through the software to solve interference issues when detected, or for battery life and RF signal strength conditions.

Delivering the ability to coordinate, monitor, and control the most complex wireless systems all from a laptop computer, Wireless Workbench 6 truly unleashes the full power of Axient.
