Renkus-Heinz Debuts New Sound Solutions at InfoComm 2023

by | Audio, Gear, Production

Renkus-Heinz, industry-leading loudspeaker manufacturer, returned to InfoComm at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, where they exhibited various systems, including the award-winning UBX Series of passive column loudspeakers, the ICLive X Series of digitally steerable arrays and an all-new software tool that revolutionizes the entire Renkus-Heinz steerable product line.

Attendees also had the opportunity to hear the C Series in action as Amadeus Acoustics performed an immersive sound demonstration with Renkus-Heinz C Series C121M loudspeakers at the beginning of each demo hour.

“This InfoComm, we brought our best lineup of products along with an all-new approach to our renowned beam-steering technology,” said Renkus-Heinz president Monika Smetona. “InfoComm is a wonderful opportunity to share our past year’s progress and achievements.”

On display at InfoComm 2023 was:

UBX Series

The award-winning UBX Series brings Renkus-Heinz’s industry-leading sound quality and coverage into the realm of passive arrays, creating more opportunities for AV contractors, consultants and sound system engineers to craft the perfect sound solution for their projects. Utilizing the same complex steering algorithms as Renkus-Heinz’s flagship ICONYX columns, the UBX Series’ new Passive UniBeam™ Technology delivers pristine sound and consistent coverage with minimal distortions or side lobe artifacts.

The UBX Series hardware addresses each transducer with specially designed all-pass filter networks, gain shading and frequency filtering to generate a downward steered asymmetrical vertical lobe with constant directivity — resulting in unmatched coverage and speech intelligibility from the front of the room to the back.

Available in three weather-resistant sizes — UBX4, UBX8 and UBX16 — all UBX Series models feature an ultra-sleek, unobtrusive cabinet that can be surface-mounted plumb to the wall to ensure minimal architectural intrusion in any space.

ICLive X Series

The ICLive X Series is the most versatile steerable line array on the market, ready to solve even the most challenging projects with directed, intelligible sound. As the intelligent evolution of the small-format line array, the ICLive X Series represents over 15 years of research and development of digital beam-steering technology. With the ICLive X Series, Renkus-Heinz has created a compact, high-output and high-fidelity integrated system to meet the needs of nearly any live sound environment — perfect for both portable or performance-based fixed installations.

The ICLive X has been designed from the ground up to be the single most scalable sound system ever created. With ultimate flexibility, coverage and powerful beam-steering technology, the ICLive X Series offers peak sound performance in a versatile, sleek design — something no traditional loudspeaker system can match. Each mid-sized ICLX module can stand alone or be arrayed with up to 12 units to deliver precise and predictable coverage for any venue. The complementary ICLX-118S subwoofer adds powerful low-frequency energy to any ICLive X system. A wide range of rigging and cabling accessories help simplify integration and deployment of the ICLive X Series.

ICONYX Gen5 Series

As part of the ICONYX Gen5 Series of digitally steerable loudspeaker arrays, the IC8-RD combines digital control and steering with exceptional audio fidelity. With a slim, low-profile design and powerful audio abilities, the IC8-RD is ideal for houses of worship, stadiums and arenas, transportation terminals and other reverberant spaces. This model also features dual redundant Dante connectivity and the RHAON II System Manager — the second generation of the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network software — to bring a new level of flexibility and control to ICONYX installations. The IC8-RD easily stores and recalls up to 10 configuration presets.

ICLive Gen5 Series

The ICLive Gen5 Series takes the control and flexibility of ICONYX and scales it up to a higher output solution ideally suited for worship spaces, live music and theatrical environments.

The introduction of Generation 5 technology brings improved performance and speed of operation while also increasing potential output and reducing cost. Individual driver control means unsurpassed vertical pattern control — essential for delivering intelligible speech in reverberant spaces.

Iconyx Compact Series

The Iconyx Compact Series brings the performance and directivity synonymous with Renkus-Heinz to spaces where even the classic ICONYX arrays might be too large. With an ultra-narrow profile and exceptional directivity control, Iconyx Compact is well-suited to even the most architecturally sensitive houses of worship, transportation hubs and educational facilities requiring the outstanding performance and high intelligibility of beam-steered line arrays.

C Series

C Series point source loudspeakers offer outstanding audio quality at a competitive, cost-effective price. With versatile enclosure designs, go-anywhere hardware and rugged construction to help solve any sound reinforcement challenges with ease, the C Series is an ideal option for retail, corporate and education facilities, churches, theaters and any other applications requiring both compact size and outstanding sonic performance.

The CA/CX121M 12-inch stage monitor is an excellent choice for portable and installed PA functions. The CA/CX121M offers flexibility as a pole-mounted side fill or a sound reinforcement system and removes the need for drive unit rotation or reconfiguration. The monitors are available in a passive and three powered models: analog, RHAON and Dante. 

S Series

The S Series features the SA/SX28, a highly compact yet powerful subwoofer that allows for flexible and discreet placement in a variety of install and portable scenarios. It’s the ideal under-seat subwoofer for houses of worship, theaters and other installations where aesthetics are of utmost importance.
