Northridge, CA (March 4, 2016)—JBL Professional has released its new JBL HiQnet Performance Manager 2.0 software for configuring and controlling live sound reinforcement systems.
Performance Manager is designed for networked audio systems across a range of venues and applications. Featuring an integrated workflow paradigm, the software enables engineers to work through each stage of system configuration and provides the interface for system control and monitoring.
Version 2.0 sports a number of new features, including drag-and-drop speaker preset selection. Any speaker can be dragged-and-dropped to any amplifier channel, and Performance Manager will create the custom preset configuration in the background. JBL Line Array Calculator (LAC) integration has been improved and now offers the ability to import an array created in LAC into Performance Manager with just one step. All circuiting information, level and EQ adjustments developed in LAC transfer to Performance Manager and then to the amplifiers without having to manually move the parameters over from one software program to the other.
Other new additions include an Infinite Canvas; various networking improvements; full support for Pen input on Windows 10 devices; various EQ changes; and support for JBL VTX M Series monitor speakers (M20, M22) and new Crown Audio I-Tech HD firmware.
