Orlando, FL (June 13, 2013)—Harman Professional has debuted its new Architectural Media Systems program, which combines the processing power of BSS Audio and Crown Audio’s amplifier technology with the configuration and control capabilities of HiQnet, for small to large-scale AV system design.
Harman Architectural Media Systems include signal processing from BSS Audio‘s Soundweb London family, amplification from Crown’s DriveCore Install Series, and networked audio connectivity via the designer’s choice of AVB, Harman’s proprietary BLU Link bus, Cirrus CobraNet or Audinate Dante. System configuration and control is provided by HiQnet Audio Architect, with HiQnet Motion Control and Powered by Crown iOS apps providing mobile control.
The systems are built to provide scalability via distributed DSP architecture and transport-agnostic approaches to audio network design. Thie systems are built around Harman’s new HiQnet Audio Architect software application, which is said to be scalable with advanced integration and persona-centric workflow, as well as benefiting from the global training and support network of the company’s worldwide regional offices.
“It’s truly the best of many worlds: industry-leading signal processing, amplification, software, networking and control technology, working together to provide a uniform experience, seamless integration and the quality assurance of Harman,” said Iain Gregory, Market Manager Signal Processing Business Unit, Harman Professional. “We’re pleased to debut this approach at InfoComm 2013 and we look forward to working with the consultant and contractor communities as they adopt this solution into their system designs, and as we continually expand the capabilities of Harman Architectural Media Systems.”
