HARMAN Professional Releases JBL® HiQnet Performance Manager™ 1.1: Includes Advanced Support For Crown VRACK 4×3500 and JBL V5 Preset Data For JBL VTX and VerTec®

NORTHRIDGE, California — Demonstrating its commitment to make JBL® HiQnet Performance Manager™ the most comprehensive and useful system configuration and control application in professional live sound audio, HARMAN Professional today released JBL HiQnet Performance Manager version 1.1 featuring support for the Crown VRACK 4×3500 and updated JBL V5 Preset Data. In doing so, the company is coupling the most efficient and best sounding audio hardware technologies with the industry’s most advanced yet intuitive configuration and control application.

“HARMAN’s stated goal for JBL HiQnet Performance Manager is that it should make the complex simple and enable better sounding performance audio systems to be designed and deployed more efficiently and economically,” stated Adam Holladay, Market Manager, HARMAN System Development and Integration Group. “With the release of version 1.1 and the addition of support for Crown VRACK 4×3500 and updated JBL V5 Preset Data for VTX Series and VerTec Series models, we’re making JBL HiQnet Performance Manager more inclusive and valuable to our customers for theatre, worship, and corporate and all live sound applications.”

JBL HiQnet Performance Manager dramatically reduces design time, simplifies networking and automates control interface configuration. With considerable expert system design knowledge embedded directly into the software, Performance Manager cleverly disguises the complexity of system configuration and guides even the less-experienced user through the process so as to achieve a far more optimal result than would otherwise be possible.

• Support for the Crown VRACK 4×3500 with full integration into the Performance Manager workflow
