Renkus-Heinz Brings Flexibility and Interoperability to Iconyx Compact Series with Audinate’s Dante

Renkus-Heinz, manufacturer of premium professional loudspeakers, has announced the latest products in its new Iconyx Compact Series: the ICC 12/3-RD1, 24/3-RD1, 36/3-RD1 and 48/3-RD1.

The new -RD1 line-up completes the Iconyx Compact Series portfolio, a line that first launched in 2020 as a response to integrators seeking coherent and steerable sound solutions in highly problematic acoustic spaces. With its compact footprint, the series brings performance and directivity to spaces where even the classic Iconyx arrays might be too large.

The -RD1 models add improved interoperability and flexibility through Dante audio-over-IP functionality. They also bring new control options with integration into Crestron’s remote control solutions and environments.

“The -RD1 versions allow for quick, cost effective, and easy integration using Audinate’s highly integrated Dante Ultimo chip,” said Graham Hendry, vice president of strategic development at Renkus-Heinz. “The Ultimo platform is perfect for the smaller footprint Iconyx Compact Series where the diminutive dimensions also mean there is a need for more space-constrained network devices featuring a lower channel count. The -RD1 ICC family supports all the features that have driven widespread adoption of Dante technology: auto-discovery of devices, label-based routing of signals, true plug-and-play operation, and superb audio performance over standard networks.”

The very narrow profile allows the Iconyx Compact Series to blend into nearly any environment, while exceptional directivity helps control even the most challenging acoustics. This brings the premium performance of beam-steered line arrays to even the most architecturally sensitive spaces and provides more opportunities for integration in the house of worship, corporate, transportation, education, and government markets.

The new products also offer full RHAON II beam-steering with the latest U.R.G.O beam algorithms, a movable acoustic centre, multiple beam opening angles and high-pass filtering of individual beams. That means all the fidelity and musicality expected of a Renkus-Heinz product, found in a footprint 40 per cent smaller than the classic Iconyx.

The included wall-mount brackets make mounting easy and is nearly invisible behind the arrays. Standard RN units have analogue and AES inputs.
