New York (February 9, 2010)—AKG will debut a free Apple iPhone app in March for monitoring and controling its wireless microphone and IEM systems.
The app will link Harman’s HiQnet protocol to the iPhone and iPod Touch app via Wi-Fi network. According to AKG, the new application can be used to monitor wireless system parameters and radio frequency connections on stage for various AKG systems, including the DMS 700, the WMS 4000/4500, and the IVM 4 personal monitor system. The user will reportedly be able to 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 system is based on Harman’s HiQnet protocol.
“With 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,” said Philipp Sonnleitner, product manager for HiQnet and system integration. “AKG 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.”
