Swiss Support
On the European distribution front,
Shure has opened its own office in
Switzerland and will take over direct
distribution of its products throughout
the country with the newly founded
Shure Distribution Switzerland GmbH.
Herbert Muff, who, as Director of
Shure Switzerland has led Shure's
market development office in the
country since 2015, and will now
head the local subsidiary, comments:
"The decision to assume distribution
directly was made so that we can work
with our customers on a more personal
basis. By supplying Shure products
and providing customer support
directly, we can look after our clients
in Switzerland and their projects more
comprehensively, flexibly, and quickly.
It will also be easier to identify trends

or customer needs and incorporate
this feedback faster into our product
development cycle."
With the opening of the new Swiss
office, Shure Distribution GmbH now
has branches in Germany, Austria,
Belgium, and the Netherlands.

Dramatic Art
In the UK, Shure Distribution UK has
partnered with the Royal Academy of
Dramatic Art (RADA) "to help foster a
strong theatre industry for the years
ahead". As part of the partnership,
Shure has agreed to donate some of
its equipment to the Academy and
carry out masterclasses in wireless
technology.
Equipment supplied to RADA
includes top-tier wireless microphone
and in-ear monitor systems, such
as Axient Digital and
PSM300, as well as
Shure's range of KSM
studio microphones.
Steve Mayo, Head
of Sound at RADA
comments:
"The
between
Equipment supplied to RADA on behalf of Shure includes collaboration
top-tier wireless microphone and in-ear monitor systems RADA
and
Shure

is one of innovation, rigour and
experimentation. Shure's company
values sit perfectly with RADA's
dedication to world-class education.
The partnership between RADA and
Shure ensures the high standards
of excellence and helps to deliver
consistency across specialist training,
product development and application."
Tuomo Tolonen, Pro Audio Director
at Shure UK, adds: "We are honoured
to continue working with RADA and the
partnership has been a phenomenal
experience from day one. RADA
offers their students the best possible
education and it is a pleasure to play
a role in preparing students so they
can enjoy a successful career upon
graduation."
Shure Distribution UK first offered
RADA a technical sponsorship in 2012,
when the Academy launched its Sound
Design for the Theatre course.
Networked Mics
Audio-Technica has upgraded its
entire line of network microphones
and devices, offering new AES67compatible versions of all its previous
models.
The updated models carry an 'a'
suffix in their names and include the
ATND971a boundary microphone,
ATND8677a microphone desk stand,

ATND8734a power module, ATND931a
gooseneck microphone and ATND933a
hanging ceiling-mount microphone.
These new network microphones
and devices are designed for audioover-IP interoperability, connecting
directly to any AES67-compliant
network, including those that utilise
Livewire, Ravenna and Q-LAN AoIP
technologies. There's been no change
in functionality.
The latest firmware increases the
Dante Domain Manager features,
adding role-based security, crosssubnet routing, SNMP alerts and more.
With increased connectivity for audio
streams and expanded Dante features,
these new network microphones and
devices give users plug-and-play
access to nearly any AoIP system.

Audio-Technica has upgraded its entire
line of network microphones and devices,

Stage Tec Presents 3D Audio and
XFIP Interface
S

tage Tec, the Berlin-based
manufacturer of professional
audio equipment, will present the world
premiere of the new 5.1.4 multichannel
format with Z-plane in AURUS platinum
at IBC2018.
3D audio is becoming increasingly
important in the professional audio
arena. The soundscapes that 3D audio
creates evoke a more emotional
response for consumers not only
in music and TV productions and
cinemas, but also at live events and in
theatres.
AURUS, the flagship Stage Tec
console, has been offering
true multichannel format
capability for parallel mixes
in 5.1 and stereo or mixes in
7.1 for many years. Following
Software Release 4.7, the
new multichannel format
5.1.4 is available in AURUS
platinum and enables 3D
audio mixing with four
height speakers. Software

release 4.7 will be available in the
autumn.
Modular, flexible and completely
IP-based - Stage Tec will launch
AVATUS, its brand new large
format mixing console.
AVATUS varies in size
between one and eight
fader cassettes, which are connected
via IP and can be used for remote
productions. AVATUS display and
operating philosophy is based on large
multi-touch screens. Only the currently
relevant, context-related functions
are displayed. Coupled with the
decentralised mode of
operation, dispensing
with the centre
section brings users
ultimate flexibility,
for example in a
multi-user operation.
Dr Helmut Jahne,
Managing Director of
NEXUS Fiber Stage Tec, says: "The
and IP-Interface
(XFIP) industry is currently

Stage Tec AURUS platinum and 3D audio metering

in transition. Just as the basic concepts
of mixing consoles and studios
completely changed with the move
from analogue to digital today, with
IP connectivity and the move toward
remote production we are witnessing a
similar upheaval.
"The future will be fascinating - and
with AVATUS we are well-equipped to
respond to customer requirements and
market trends."
Stage Tec will introduce the latest
board for the NEXUS network - the
NEXUS Fiber and IP-Interface (XFIP).
The board is used in the NEXUS
Base Devices and is result of the
collaboration
between
DirectOut
and Stage Tec. XFIP uses DirectOut's

AES67.IO module, which has a full
AES67 implementation. It supports
the creation of a non-proprietary
audio network via an audio-over-IP
connection.
Alexander Nemes, Head of Sales at
Stage Tec, adds: "We offer the NEXUS
Fibre and IP Interface to customers
when they require small, cost-effective
audio networks without a NEXUS STAR
router. Even if customers do have a
STAR router, but have no room for
additional boards, they can use XFIP as
an alternative.
"The XFIP also follows the
recommendations of the standardsbased AIMS Roadmap with the SMPTE
ST 2110 goal."
