Starting in March of 2010, in addition to great sound and reliable performance of AKG's wireless systems, users will have a new tool to browse, monitor, and control their wireless microphone and IEM systems: their iPhone®. With the introduction of their new iPhone application - which will be available for free in Apple's iTunes® store – AKG has effectively streamlined the workflow for wireless microphone monitoring and configuration by linking Harman's HiQnet® protocol to the iPhone and iPod® Touch app via Wi-Fi® network.
The new application can be used to monitor wireless system parameters and radio frequency connections on stage for some of AKG's most popular wireless microphone systems, including the DMS 700, the WMS 4000/4500, and the IVM 4 in ear monitoring system. The user can easily browse through the entire wireless system within the device list, monitor each device and it's parameters separately within the stripe view, or use the RF monitor for checking the radio frequency connection of each wireless device.
“With the introduction of our new iPhone application, AKG has continued to build on the industry-leading versatility offered with our wireless microphone and IEM systems,” said Philipp Sonnleitner, product manager for HiQnet and system integration. “AKG users now have the ability to control and monitor every aspect of their wireless systems from the palm of their hands anywhere on the venue.”
The iPhone application is connected via Wi-Fi to a wireless router, which is connected to the AKG HUB 4000 Q. The application can be used side by side with Harman Pro System Architect® because the entire system is based on Harman's advanced HiQnet® protocol.
