The iPhone will soon serve as a work tool for users of AKG wireless systems.
A new iPhone app will be available free in March at the Apple iTunes store to allow users to browse, monitor and control AKG wireless mic systems. While the announcement is targeted at venue operations, it’s notable for any users of these systems.
AKG has linked Harman’s HiQnet protocol to the iPhone and iPod Touch app via Wi-Fi network. “The new application can be used to monitor wireless system parameters and radio frequency connections on stage 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 company stated.
“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 an AKG HUB 4000 Q. The application can be used with Harman Pro System Architect because the system is based on Harman’s HiQnet protocol.
Harman HiQnet is a connectivity and control protocol that integrates product categories in the signal chain for professional audio systems.
