HiQnet is a communications protocol that enables all the compatible devices in the audio signal path, from mixing consoles to loudspeakers, to seamlessly communicate with each other. System Architect 3 is the software used to set up and configure a HiQnet system, by means of a series of control panels that are displayed on a PC and can be customized by the user.
System Architect enables designers to configure and control an installed sound system, using the HiQnet communications protocol that enables all the compatible devices in the audio signal path, from mixing consoles to loudspeakers, to communicate with each other seamlessly. System Architect 3 features a system design philosophy centered on workflow and the use of a diagrammatic representation of the installed or live sound venue. Devices are arranged by both their physical and logical placement allowing the designer to 'educate' System Architect about how they are to be used. In return the software is able to provide automation of many of the laborious system design tasks for free.
Attendees of the System Architect courses will learn:
* Design workflow modes
* Overview of Ethernet AVB technology and AVB routing
* Comprehensive design workflow and system tools
* Custom and master panel creation
* Going online and networking
* Day-to-day operation
Both System Architect courses award attendees with 5.5 InfoComm CTS RU credits.
JBL HiQnet Performance Manager is a software application derived from the System Architect core code but tailored for live sound operation. It is designed to configure networked audio systems within performance venues such as theatre, house of worship, and corporate and other performance sound events. It dramatically reduces design time, simplifies networking and automates control interface configuration.
Attendees of the Performance Manager course will learn the way in which Performance Manager guides the configuration of system design workflow:
* Working with array templates and the JBL Line Array Calculator II tool
* Adding passive or powered speakers automatically
* Adding and associating amplifier racks automatically
* Simplified drag-and-drop networking
* Using the built-in test, tuning and calibration control interfaces
* Running and monitoring the system with the dedicated show mode
"System Architect and Performance Manager are two powerful tools that make the design, setup, and tuning of audio systems faster and more efficient than ever before. These training courses will provide attendees with the knowledge to harness these resources for their everyday use," stated Adam Holladay, Market Manager, HARMAN System Development and Integration Group.
