HARMAN Professional Releases JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ Version 1.7, Adding Support for JBL VTX F Series Loudspeakers

FRANKFURT, Germany – HARMAN Professional today introduced the latest iteration of its comprehensive software for live sound system configuration and control, JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ version 1.7. New to version 1.7 is support for JBL’s VTX F Series loudspeakers, new circuiting functionality, plus a host of other new capabilities.

JBL HiQnet Performance Manager is a true workflow-based user experience for designing, deploying and controlling any configuration of HiQnet live performance system that offers touring and live sound professionals reduced design time, simplified networking, and an automated interface configuration.

Version 1.7 features new circuiting functionality that allows for automatic mirroring of delay, bandpass gain, circuit level attenuation, and limiter reduction. It also affords the ability for center stacks to mirror their circuit configuration. With the new functionality, circuits for ground stacks on-end are built in an onstage to offstage fashion and HARMAN’s Crown VRACK amplifier channels are now automatically associated with sub bandpasses by using channel 1 of all three amps before associating with channel 2. The functionality also separates the circuits of cardioid subs so non-consecutive circuiting and more economical triplets can be created.

Additionally, online matching now has the option of preserving physical devices addresses and making the virtual device in Performance Manager receive the HiQnet address from the networked device. The update also features substantial changes to ground stack templates: it is now possible to select any number of column or row stacks, while selecting an odd number of ground stacks on-end will create a center stack that circuits inside-to-out within itself.

When in “Amplify Mode” users now have the capability to make associations directly by dragging speaker bandpasses to amplifier channels or vice versa. Version 1.7 also features a new ‘auto’ VRACK wiring mode option within the Array Configuration dialog. This allows Performance Manager to automatically decide the most economical use of VRACKs and can be used instead of the advanced tab for complex scenarios.

“Today’s introduction features improvements that are a direct result of input from our users,” commented Paul Bauman, Associate Director, Tour Sound, JBL Professional. “Version 1.7 further enhances Performance Manager’s ability to simplify complex system configurations and guide professionals and even those with less experience to optimize the performance of JBL tour sound products.”
