Symetrix has launched SymNet Composer 3.0, an update to its open architecture design software.
Version 3.0 builds upon the native support of Audinate’s Dante media networking technology for select third-party devices in earlier releases, and extends support of market-leading products through new partnerships with Shure Inc. and Audio-Technica.
Now, integrators can streamline their set-up procedures and achieve network discovery, Dante signal routing, and audio set-up of supported third-party devices from the two new manufacturers - alongside Attero Tech and Stewart Audio - with a single piece of software.
Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix, said: “The previous version of Composer was genuinely groundbreaking because it meant less software to keep up-to-date and less jumping between different items of software. Since launch, integrators have consistently told us that it is saving them both time and money. Now, with SymNet Composer 3.0, we are able to extend this ease of configuration to several other market-leading products and make it possible for a Dante-based system to be configured quickly and easily from input to amplifier through a single software programme.”
The new version of SymNet Composer also includes a number of Window Management (Composer UI) Framework improvements, giving the user greater freedom to move pallets to any side of the screen they desire, resize them in place and nest them into tabbed pallets. It is also possible to create specific menu bars for frequently accessed commands and customize toolbars to keep preferred shortcuts at hand.
Symetrix founder and CEO Dane Butcher comments: “Our overriding objective is to make integrators’ lives easier, and it is clear that requirement will gain significance as we move into the world of comprehensive A/V networking. With SymNet Composer 3.0, I believe that we have taken our support of integrators to a new and higher level.”
