HARMAN’s Soundcraft and AKG Combine To Enable Wireless Mic Monitoring in the Mixer

The status of any HARMAN HiQnet-compatible AKG radio mic can be monitored directly from the HARMAN Soundcraft Vi Series console surface, courtesy of VM2 (Vistonics Microphone Monitoring).

VM2 provides real-time visual displays of battery life, RF status, mic muting, and internal clipping directly on a channel strip on the Vistonics screen, so it’s possible to see a problem long before you hear it, with expanded information available by touching the screen. System configuration is straightforward and uses HARMAN’s HiQnet network: plug in the mics and patch them to the related console channels.

VM2 will be available for all Soundcraft Vi Series consoles in V4.5 software, including Vi1, Vi2, Vi4, and Vi6.

Compatible AKG Wireless mic systems are WMS 4000, WMS 4500, and DMS 700 (optional HUB 4000Q HiQnet Ethernet interface required).
