AKG has launched the IVM 4500 IEM in-ear monitoring package for touring and installed sound.
The IVM 4500 offers 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 IVM receivers has been tested up to 10 hours.
Antenna diversity, with two matched antennas and a new reference radio electronic design, contribute to the stable signals of the receiver.
The IVM 4500 has a 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 AKG IVM 4500 IEM in-ear monitoring hardware sets a new standard in audio quality and radio performance as we continue to provide engineers with the best and highest functioning equipment available,” states Wolfgang Fritz, product marketing manager – tour sound, AKG. “With the launch of IVM 4500 IEM, AKG adds another wireless system to the continually growing arsenal of wireless systems on the market. It will truly be a groundbreaking system to the touring industry as the search for the ultimate monitoring sound continues.”
The IVM 4500 IEM system includes:
—SPR 4500 IEM diversity receiver, which automatically shows the number of free channels and supports TV channels with pre-programmed preset frequencies;
—SST 4500 IEM transmitter, which is adjustable to 10, 20, 50 and 100 mW depending on country laws;
—IP 2 ear-channel headphones, providing excellent acoustics and low impedance.
The SPC 4500 antenna combiner, the SRA 2 W directional antenna and the RA 4000 W omni-directional antenna complete the package.
