Shure has announced its intent at IBC to acquire Finnish audio developer Wavemark, known for its software for broadcast and theatre, and content streaming applications such as Wavetool and WTAutomixer. Shure says Wavemark’s product range reinforces its commitment to the evolving needs of the professional audio and events industries.

Fully integrated into the Shure stand in Hall 8, Wavetool offers a centralised platform that enables remote listening and viewing of all audio sources while monitoring RF and battery levels. A specialised algorithm is designed to detect and flag faulty sound sources promptly, allowing for swift identification and resolution of audio issues. Additionally, the software boasts an integrated chat feature for seamless communication among audio technicians.

Also on show, WTAutomixer facilitates auto-mixing in scenarios such as podcasting, remote learning and house of worship services. The multichannel, gain sharing automixer can be inserted into almost any DAW as a VST3, AU, or AAX plug-in. It manages the gain of multiple microphones, making it useful for live streams, discussion panels, talk shows, religious services and any application that requires multiple microphones.
