“The V4 release for I-Tech HD is an important milestone that will provide immediate benefits to users due to improved sound quality and a 2 dB increase in maximum SPL output thanks to new industry-standard setting LevelMAX limiting,” stated Paul Bauman, JBL’s Director of Tour Sound Product & Application Engineering.
“LevelMAX was a joint development involving JBL, Crown, and BSS engineering and is a significant step forward in providing our users exactly what they need to get the most out of their systems – highly sophisticated loudspeaker protection that is sonically transparent and electrically accurate in terms of what is going on at the transducer level when it comes to peak, RMS, and thermal protection,” Bauman added.
“We have only just begun to tap the potential we can offer sound reinforcement professionals with I-Tech HD,” added Brian Divine, Crown Director of Marketing for Installed and Tour Sound. “The OMNIDRIVEHD processing is a significant improvement in DSP power and refinement. We have new tools now that are going to change the way our customers utilize the processing in amplifiers.”
The package also comes bundled with the just-released version 1.90.1 of Harman HiQnet System Architect Software.
