Harman Debuts HiQnet System Architect Version 1.9

HiQnet System Architect Version 1.9 GUI

Harman Professional has launched HiQnet System Architect Version 1.9, a free download offering new features including network troubleshooting tools, file compression and management and advanced control panel customization. According to Rick Kreifeldt, vice president, Harman Professional Systems Development & Integration Group (SDIG), the community of registered HiQnet System Architect users has exceeded 20,000.

Control of the three models of the new Crown I-Tech HD Series will be possible with the device plug-ins included with System Architect V. 1.9, which support the configuration of the FIR filters and LevelMAX limiters included in the new flagship touring amplifier; the algorithms for both were co-developed with BSS Audio. Currently, Harman says, there are a total of 93 shipping HiQnet devices and a total of 66 System Architect-controlled devices.

Worldwide frequency restrictions and digital TV present a huge challenge for wireless systems operators, and to assist with keeping wireless technologies running, AKG has added the new “One-Click Setup” to its System Architect HUB 4000 Q plug-in. With a single mouse-click, the tool runs an extensive environment scan and calculates intermodulation-free frequencies for the entire wireless system on the fly.

A Network Troubleshooting tool actively monitors the network, diagnoses and alerts of any problems and, where possible, automatically resolves the problem or, if manual intervention is required, provides specific instructions on how to address the problem. In addition to providing real-time monitoring and alerts, the tool also creates a backup log of any IP address changes that were made in the event that the previous configuration is required to be restored.

Also new to V. 1.9 is a compressed file format that is designed to dramatically reduce file sizes, in test cases as high as a ratio of 100:1. Separately, a new utility installed with System Architect V. 1.9 enables advanced users to expand and explore the contents of a saved file and thereby edit individual custom panels in an XML editor, and update images offline, etc. The same utility recompresses the file for opening again in System Architect.
