Harman’s pro audio UK distributor Sound Technology has started shipping the JBL new monitor management system to customers in the UK and Ireland.
The JBL Intonato 24 Monitor Management Tuning System is a management tool to monitor systems in stereo, surround, and immersive audio production rooms.
It can calibrate and control systems of up to 24 speakers with customised recallable routing of up to 24 sources selected from 24 dedicated analogue, 24 digital and 256 networked audio sources.
“While the approach to control room monitoring has remained relatively consistent over the years, audio signal paths, production workflows, and production spaces have evolved tremendously,” said Peter Chaikin, director of recording solutions at Harman International.
“With Intonato 24, JBL set out to create the heart of a complete next-generation system that takes control room monitoring to the next level, empowering content creators to produce consistently superior output regardless of the spaces where they find themselves — or the formats they are asked to deliver.”
Intonato 24 includes a calibration microphone and innovative Automated Speaker Calibration process that ‘tunes’ each speaker to compensate for speaker placement and room acoustics, delivering neutral response to the mix position.
Intonato 24 pairs with JBL 7 Series and JBL M2 Master Reference studio monitors to create the first complete monitoring system designed for immersive audio production in control rooms of any size.
While Intonato 24 was designed as the hub of JBL’s new 7 Series installed reference monitor system, the unit can be used with any passive or powered speaker.
In addition, Harman Blu link network protocol allows Intonato 24 to be digitally networked with Crown power amplifiers and an assortment of system components.
