WWB6 - Wireless Workbench® 6
Break through with wireless scalability.

WWB6

Wireless Workbench® 6

RF can be your sound system’s best friend, and its worst enemy. But there’s a software solution to keep the signal on your side, in every environment. Command your entire system with Wireless Workbench® 6.

How It Works

Wireless Workbench 6 lets you remotely monitor and manage every piece of gear connected to your system without interrupting the production. Frequency calculation and analysis for supported devices allows you to coordinate the entire show from one application. The Timeline feature even lets you track RF data and review it later. Advanced Zone Management makes calculating and organizing frequencies for large or distributed environments more manageable. With this much control in your grasp, wireless freedom always moves the performance forward.

Why It's Better

Rapid management

Users can save parameter settings and quickly apply them for simpler device configuration.

Robust coordination

RF is rarely consistent. Wireless Workbench gives you the flexibility to coordinate your frequencies over time and space.

Enterprise-wide networking

Remotely connect to devices on multiple subnets. Access control ensures only the right users can operate on your network.

Quality that’s in the Details

  • Free download
  • Compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 10 and Mac OS X High Sierra, Mojave, and Catalina
