Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is releasing updates to its popular Installed Sound Support iPhone app. Initially released in 2014, the original Audio-Technica Installed Sound Support App sported user-favorite features such as RTA & SPL metering, Playback & Record of short audio test clips, and a needed gain calculator. The app was developed and updated by Studio Six Digital.
The most recent update includes new modules by popular request and updated graphics, including these new features: UHF frequency tables for Audio-Technica wireless microphone systems, helpful to avoid inter-modulation when planning and using multiple A-T wireless channels around broadcast TV channels (US only); a cable calculator for the Audio-Technica ATUC-50 digital discussion system; antenna line loss calculator for some of the popular RF cables on the market today; improved RTA & SPL module with a peak-hold function; and tone/noise generator.
The newest version of the app retains the following features from the previous iteration: wavelength function, which calculates the audio wavelength in feet and/or meters based on the frequency; RTA & SPL real time analyzer; record & playback for up to five test recordings; needed gain function, which uses a gain calculator to determine potential acoustic gain (PAG) and needed acoustic gain (NAG); information links to A-T website and AudioTools in app store.
Mark Donovan, CTS-D, CTS-I, Audio-Technica Applications Engineering Manager, Professional Markets, remarks, "The Installed Sound Support app has proven to be a very useful tool in the field for our integrators. This update to the app has expanded its usefulness and incorporates features to support our newest products."
