Crown has released an IQ Network software application for Pocket PC–compatible devices. Called “Pocket IQ,” this free application allows audio control of TCP/IQ-based networks to be controlled via a PDA.
Pocket IQ works with Crown’s free IQwic software suite, allowing Pocket PC PDAs with Ethernet connectivity to control and monitor the audio functions of devices on an IQ Network. IQwic allows users to develop custom control screens for the Pocket PC, which are then imported into the Pocket PC program running on the device. Both IQwic and Pocket IQ are available for free download to users via the IQ Website, www.iqaudiosystems.com.
With Custom Control Screens, users can set up a common set of controls and meters to make it simple and easy to fine-tune their system. For instance, a consultant might place common controls for filters and delays on a custom control screen in IQwic beforehand, and then make final adjustments via their PDA as they move about the space while commissioning the system on-site.
Currently, Pocket IQ supports devices running Pocket PC 2002 on the ARM processor, including (among others) the HP iPaq 3855 and iPaq 5450.
