MXWNCS2/4/8 - Networked Charging Station See release notes Posted July 06, 2016 Download PACK (1.41 mb)

These release notes cover the following models:

  • MXWNCS2/4/8 Networked Chargers
  • MXWANI4/8 Audio Network Interfaces
  • MXWAPT2/4/8 Access Point Transceivers
  • MXW1/2/6/8 Wireless Microphones

IMPROVEMENT

  • Added new frequency band Z14 (1910-1920 MHz) for Brazil

KNOWN ISSUES

  • If the SCM820 automatic mixer is selected as the Audio Output Device for automatic routing of APT audio channels, ensure that the SCM820 firmware version is higher than version 1.2.3. Alternatively, use Dante Controller software to route the channels. For a free Dante routing and diagnostic tool, see Audinate.com.
  • Transmitters may fail to update if they are on a firmware version that is lower than the firmware version on the charger that they are docked on. To properly update transmitters, ensure transmitters are docked on chargers with firmware version 4.0.6. 

NOTES

  • For operation of MXW devices with other Shure networked systems, see the following list of minimum software and firmware versions that are supported with MXW version 4.0.6:
  • Dante Packet Bridge Support: A third-party Dante device (e.g. a Dante DSP) used with the MXWAPT can now obtain the MXWAPT Control IP Address through a data channel on the Dante Network, allowing greater flexibility in network architecture and setup with multiple interfaces.

  • MXWAPT2/4/8 Access Point Transceivers
  • MXW1/2/6/8 Wireless Microphones

NEW FEATURES

  • 2-Channel System: Support for new models MXAPT2 and MXWNCS2. Update all MXW components in a configuration to the same firmware version to ensure compatibility.
  • Pair a Spare: Create MXW microphone sets by linking two MXW microphones to the same APT channel slot. Link a bodypack and handheld to the same channel and allow the presenter to select between the two options. Link two of the same microphone types to the same channel to have a back-up microphone ready. The microphone that is powered first on a given channel will exclusively occupy the RF/audio channel. To use the feature, go to the browser-based interface for the MXWAPT. To set a group command for all channels, select Link All Primary or Link All Secondary from the Configuration tab. To set a command for a single channel, go the Monitor tab.
  • Remote Pairing: Link an MXW microphone to any MXW access point on a network, including across subnets. Custom control system programming is required and details are available at MXW Creston/AMX Control Strings.
  • Battery Cycle Count Reset: Reset the charge cycle count of a microphone after a new battery has been inserted. To reset the cycle count, place the microphone in an MXW charger and hold down the mute button for 10 seconds. The microphone’s LED will flash to reset and the user must log in to the MXWAPT web UI to confirm the cycle count is zero.

IMPROVEMENTS

  • Energy efficiency of MXWNSC chargers. Select the Energy Efficient mode in the charger’s device properties. This option must be selected separately for each charger. The LED on the charger will change from being all lit to only the highest charge lit.
  • Link/Unlink button is now available on each channel of the MXWAPT web UI.
  • When using an MXWAPT with a third-party Dante device, e.g. a Dante DSP, the third-party device can now obtain the MXWAPT Control IP Address through a data channel on the Dante Network, allowing greater flexibility in network architecture and setup when dealing with multiple interfaces.
  • Push MXW channel names to Dante channel names to synchronize name sets between an MXW system and a third-party Dante device.
  • Ensures transmitter upgrades and downgrades.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • If the SCM820 automatic mixer is selected as the Audio Output Device for automatic routing of APT audio channels, ensure that the SCM820 firmware version is higher than version 1.2.3. Alternatively, use Dante Controller software to route the channels. For a free Dante routing and diagnostic tool, see Audinate.com.
