HARMAN “Powered By Crown? Apple® iPad Control Application Provides Groundbreaking Amplifier Monitoring and Control For Systems Integrators

ORLANDO, Florida — Deploying the power of its Ethernet backbone, HARMAN’s “Powered By Crown? iPad/iPhone App, is being showcased at InfoComm 2011. Providing systems integrators with a powerful tool for enhanced control and configuration, Crown’s Ethernet architecture allows for direct control of amplifiers unlike competitive systems requiring an additional computer interface. The application can be used to control and monitor amplifiers by setting basic control panels on an amplifier or by handling a complete setup through HARMAN HiQnet™ System Architect™.

The application benefits integrators deploying Crown Ethernet-enabled amplifiers including I-Tech, I-Tech HD, CTs, and Macro-Tech I Series. The app can be deployed on two, four and eight channel amplifiers. Integrators can create a custom control panel in HiQnet System Architect, save it and directly import it onto the app for system tuning and the creation of a control and monitoring system for end users.

Systems integrators can deploy the iPad App when they are installing and tuning systems and now have the capability to setup, troubleshoot, and monitor systems remotely. Inputs, routing, load monitoring, metering, thermal conditions and levels are now all controllable through the application.

“Our ‘Powered By Crown’ App is not simply a remote desktop for a computer. We are providing systems integrators with real-time data directly from the amplifiers on a network. Our commitment to standards-based Ethernet gives us the capability to offer remote monitoring and control that no other manufacturer can duplicate,? stated Marc Kellom, director of marketing for Crown.

A strategic long-term commitment to Ethernet technology by Crown means that users have the benefit of this simple to use, cost efficient program as well as seamless integration of their legacy and future Crown products through the app.

The “Powered By Crown? application is compatible with the iPod Touch and is now available for $3.99 on Apple’s iTunes store.
