InfoComm 2012: Harman’s Soundcraft announces ViSi remote iPad control

Harman’s Soundcraft has announced the availability of the ViSi remote iPad control for its Si compact digital consoles at InfoComm 2012.

The Soundcraft ViSi Remote iPad app, which is designed to enable a single iPad to control multiple consoles from the Soundcraft Si Compact range on a single wireless network, is now available for free at the iTunes store.

The app allows users to roam around a venue with the ability to adjust input channel levels and mutes, as well as adjust aux send levels and matrix sends, and level and graphic EQ settings on bus outputs. Furthermore, the ViSi Remote app also allows Soundcraft Vi Series consoles (including Vi1, Vi2, Vi4 and Vi6) to be controlled (forthcoming desk software update required). A single ViSi Remote app can then control a network of mixed consoles from the Vi and Si Compact series. Anyone can download the free app and familiarise themselves with its operation, including Vi console users prior to the release of the console software upgrade.

The app utilises Harman’s HiQnet architecture to connect the network of consoles to a wireless router, which communicates with the iPad.

For increased flexibility, multiple iPads may be used on the same network, even on the same console, so that individual artists can control their own monitor sends.
