ISE 2011 has witnessed a host of new product developments from brands within the Harman Pro portfolio. There were new developments from brands across the Harman portfolio, including Lexicon’s DD-8. The new multi-room DriveCore amplifier employs a silicon-based technology developed in conjunction with Texas Instruments to deliver high power while requiring less energy and rack space. “Our new Lexicon DD-8 sets the standard for residential amplifiers, both in terms of enery efficiency and audio performance,” said Jim Garrett, market manager, Harman High Performance A/V. Staying on a residential angle, Revel introduced a 21-model-strong range of architectural loudspeakers that feature a patented mounting mechanism for ‘tool-less, one-handed’ installation. Elsewhere in the Harman brand portfolio, JBL Professional showcased its EON210P portable PA system; Soundcraft added the 16 to its Si Compact console series; and BSS divulged detals of a new full-bandwidth AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) algorithm that has been released with HiQnet London Architect v3.04. Simultaneously – and very much in keeping with other developments at this year’s ISE – AKG introduced the Wireless App 2.0 for monitoring and configuration of AKG wireless systems through an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Along with the chance to use an updated interface, users will also have the opportunity to control multiple settings – from system design, to soundcheck and beyond – through Harman’s HiQnet protocol and a Wi-Fi connection.
