Starting in March of 2010, in addition to great sound and reliable performance of AKGâ€™s wireless systems, users will have a new tool to browse, monitor, and control their wireless microphone and IEM systems: their iPhoneÂ®. With the introduction of their new iPhone application – which will be available for free in Appleâ€™s iTunesÂ® store â€“ AKG has effectively streamlined the workflow for wireless microphone monitoring and configuration by linking Harmanâ€™s HiQnetÂ® protocol to the iPhone and iPodÂ® Touch app via Wi-FiÂ® network.
The new application can be used to monitor wireless system parameters and radio frequency connections on stage for some of AKGâ€™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 itâ€™s parameters separately within the stripe view,
or use the RF monitor for checking the radio frequency connection of each wireless device.
â€œWith 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,â€? said Philipp Sonnleitner, product manager for HiQnet and system integration. â€œAKG 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.â€?
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 ArchitectÂ® because the entire system is based on Harmanâ€™s advanced HiQnetÂ® protocol.
