Wireless Workbench offers total control of networked Shure Systems to provide an interface to manage every facet of a performance. Includes savable parameters, Shure scanning hardware, detailed visibility of spectrum, and Coordination Workspace.

Main Features

New Features in Version 6.13.1

OS-Level Notifications for Alerts: An enhancement to the Hardware Alerts and Interference Events features that allow users to receive notifications through their operating systems while Wireless Workbench is minimized.  

  • For Mac users, Wireless Workbench alerts and events will be displayed with an OS-level notification on the top right and will be viewable in the Notification Center.  
  • For Windows users, Wireless Workbench alerts and events will be displayed with an OS-level notification on the bottom right in the system tray and will be viewable in the Action Center.  


Inventory Management

  • Automatic discovery of networked Shure devices
  • Profiles for select third-party wireless devices included
  • Label, organize, and configure device parameters
  • Configure multiple wireless devices at once with batch edits
  • Presets enable users to save sets of parameters to a file and quickly apply them to one or more selected devices.

Frequency Coordination

  • Continuously scan from networked Shure scanning hardware
  • Frequency plot provides detailed visibility of usable spectrum
  • Use Coordination Workspace to analyze, calculate and deploy frequencies to inventory based on scan data
  • Prioritize and allocate spectrum for channels with Inclusion Groups
  • Assign compatible frequencies to networked Shure wireless devices
  • Scan peaks can be managed and classified with greater flexibility and extended equipment profiles.
  • Intermod spacings can be ignored for groups of frequencies during frequency coordination.
  • Coordination order customization can be performed ad-hoc in the Coordination Workspace.

Live Monitoring

  • Real-time audio, RF, and battery metering per channel
  • Channel strip designer allows for customization of viewable settings
  • Configure and store multiple channel strip arrangements
  • Configurable interference and hardware alerts
  • Timeline is a new logging utility designed to capture important channel status information over time, such as RF level, audio level, interference detection, ShowLink® Signal Strength, and more. This feature records data for extended durations with efficient file storage, enabling users to accurately archive and review the performance of their wireless systems.

Enterprise Networking

  • Remote Device Connection enables users to connect Wireless Workbench to devices across subnets.
  • Access Control enables devices to be protected from unauthorized changes via Shure software.
