Crown recently announced the release of new Version 2 firmware for its HiQnet-compatible products, a plug-in module for System Architect, and a new version of its IQwic software.
The HiQnet-compatible products included in this new firmware release include the I-Tech amplifier series, and IQ-PIP-LITE, IQ-PIP-USP3 and IQ-PIP-USP3/CN amplifier modules. These modules install into Crown CTs Series and Macro-Tech 02 Series amplifiers and are compatible with either HiQnet or TCP/IQ systems. Enhanced HiQnet support in the V. 2 firmware adds new functionality to support Harman Pro System Architect.
The Crown System Architect plug-in includes an intuitive interface for filters. The 64 available filters are now assigned into logical blocks for input system EQ, input user EQ, noise generator and loudspeaker processing.
IQwic V. 8 software includes support for the new V. 2 firmware products using the TCP/IQ protocol. These products may be operated with IQwic and System Architect simultaneously, providing a smooth upgrade path and transition to System Architect.
