The iLive Configuration Utility.Cornwall, U.K. (September 15, 2008)–Allen & Heath has launched the iLive Configuration Utility, a new online tool to aid customers wishing to purchase the new modular digital system. The Flash-based web application enables the user to build his/her own iLive system, selecting iLive control surfaces, iDR10 MixRacks and the various components needed, to design a system tailored to specific requirements.
The application comprises three screens, starting with the iLive surface, followed by the MixRack, finishing with the addition of extra modules or accessories. There is a “drag and drop” configuration utility, whereby modules can be “dragged” to the corresponding slots on the back of an iLive surface and MixRack. An item code is generated for each iLive surface and iDR10 MixRack built, and up to five surfaces and five MixRacks configurations can be saved during the process. Upon completion, the configs can be forwarded to a local sales representative.
Allen & Heath’s sales director, Bob Goleniowski, explains, “As iLive is modular with a wide variety of options and components, it can be difficult for customers to visualize and cost a system. This tool allows them to explore the range of options available, pick and choose according to their requirements and match their budget. Everything can be saved, recalled and sent to our sales distribution network, which also eliminates any order errors. It will really help streamline the sales process for this complex product.”
