At the NAMM 2012 Show, AKG launched the new IVM4500 IEM in-ear monitoring system, including high-end radio electronic and a manual radio signal attenuator for more RF dynamic, enhanced frequency setup to show the number of free channels and supported TV channels, and quick frequency change functions to support monitors.
Battery life for the IVM receivers has been tested up to 10 hours.
“AKG’s IVM 4500 IEM in-ear monitoring hardware raises the bar for audio quality, as the user becomes more in-tune with their own sound,” states Wolfgang Fritz, product marketing manager – tour sound, AKG. “AKG continues to set the standard of high-quality, reliable performance, while IVM4500 IEM adds another groundbreaking, performance-enhancing technology to the industry.”
IVM4500 IEM features antenna diversity, with two matched antennae and a new reference radio electronic design, all of which provide stable signals for the receiver.
Audio quality is enhanced with a high-end and powerful headphone amplifier, ultra linear frequency response and dual mode for individual mix. The quick frequency change functions support monitor engineers throughout performances to make their projects easily adjustable.
“The in-ear monitoring market has become far more mature over the years,” continues Fritz. “Artists demand, and rightfully so, an in-ear monitor that combines reliability, performance, power, comfort and quality audio – traits we’ve worked tirelessly on to ensure the IVM4500 IEM meets the standards of the performer.”
Included in the IVM4500 IEM system:
—SPR4500 IEM diversity receiver, which automatically shows the number of free channels and supports TV channels with pre-programmed preset frequencies;
—SST4500 IEM transmitter, which is adjustable to 10, 20, 50 and 100 mW depending on country laws; and the IP 2 ear-channel headphones, providing excellent acoustics and low impedance;
—SPC4500 antenna combiner, the SRA2 W directional antenna and the RA4000 W omni-directional antenna complete the package.
