AKG—based in Vienna, Austria—announces a new application designed to browse, monitor and control wireless microphone and IEM systems from an iPhone. The application promises to effectively streamline 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 company states that this new iPhone application will be available for free in Apple’s iTunes store beginning in March 2010.
The new application can be used to monitor wireless system parameters and radio frequency connections onstage 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 its parameters separately within the stripe view, or use the RF monitor for checking the radio frequency connection of each wireless device.
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.
