Official Release of ICONYX Gen5 and RHAON II
Orange County, CA | June, 2015 - In 2005, Renkus-Heinz introduced the first Iconyx digitally steerable line array. Now, more than a decade later, the undisputed World Leader in Steerable Sound introduces Iconyx Gen5. Integrating the power of advanced beam steering algorithms with the intuitive control of our new RHAON II System Designer software, Iconyx Gen5 is truly the new generation of steerable sound.
Introduced in both Iconyx and IC Live Install series products, Gen5 incorporates new UniBeam Technology for dramatically more uniform coverage, increased output, and faster setup and deployment. Unlike conventional point-source loudspeakers, where achieving optimal coverage is a trade-off between distance and accuracy, UniBeam makes it possible to achieve ideal "Half Horn" coverage, using Iconyx digital beam steering to shape the coverage pattern. UniBeam delivers faster, easier setup with dramatically better results.
Gen5 also offers new configurations for easier and more cost effective installation, including new Master and Slave modules, as well as the new IC16-8-RN hybrid column, designed to extend length and LF beam control while using a single, economical 8-channel amplifier.
Renkus-Heinz is also introducing the new, completely redesigned RHAON II networking software. With a new and intuitive, device-centric UI, streamlined workflow, and more than 200% faster operation. RHAON II makes faster and more intuitive setup a reality, even for the most challenging projects.
RHAON II System Manager has been completely redesigned from the ground up, using highly structured modular code for greater stability and expandability. The result is a new, more robust RHAON technology — faster, more reliable, with a streamlined, intuitive workflow. RHAON II is easy to program, easy to use, and fully compatible with both Gen5 and legacy Renkus-Heinz products.
Together, says Renkus-Heinz VP Sales and Marketing Rik Kirby, this new generation of technology keeps Renkus-Heinz at the forefront of steerable sound. "People always say you have to choose two out of three — better, faster, or cheaper," says Kirby, "but with Gen5 and RHAON II, we've managed to achieve them all. Iconyx Gen5 delivers better output with increased control, faster operation using direct, industry-standard communications, and more economical operation."
Iconyx Gen5, IC Live Gen5, and the new RHAON II will make their official debut at InfoComm 2015 in Orlando. See these, and the full line of Renkus-Heinz technologies at booth 1113, and in Demo Room W204A.
