Harman Professional Solutions has announced the JBL Intonato 24 Monitor Management Tuning System for set-up, automated calibration and control of monitoring systems in stereo, surround and immersive audio production rooms.

JBL Intonato 24 Housed in a 2U-high rackmount enclosure – and shipping with more included I/O than any monitoring control solution currently available – Intonato 24 can calibrate and control systems of up to 24 speakers with custom recallable routing of up to 24 sources selected from 24 dedicated analogue, 24 digital and 256 networked audio sources. Included software and an optional Desktop Controller manages system monitoring features.

‘While the approach to control room monitoring has remained relatively consistent over the years, audio signal paths, production workflows and production spaces have evolved tremendously,’ says Harman International Director, Recording Solutions, Peter Chaikin. ‘With Intonato 24, JBL set out to create the heart of a complete system that takes control room monitoring to the next level, empowering content creators to produce consistently superior output regardless of the spaces where they find themselves – or the formats they are asked to deliver.’

Intonato 24 includes a calibration microphone and Automated Speaker Calibration process that ‘tunes’ each speaker to compensate for speaker placement and room acoustics, delivering neutral response to the mix position–even in less-than-ideal work spaces. The result is a finely-tuned system that takes the guesswork out of mixing by tackling room-related low-frequency issues and precisely matching the level and ‘time-of-flight’ from each speaker to the mix position.

It comes standard with I/O and flexible internal routing and a mixer to manage monitoring systems of up to 24 speakers, including up to four subwoofers that can be assigned as Bass Management subs with selectable crossover settings. Intonato 24 is compatible with all monitoring formats including stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and makes immersive monitoring possible in any control room. In addition, it has the ability to patch, route, and selectively monitor any combination of 24 analogue, 24 digital and 256 networked sources including Dante via an optional interface.

An intuitive graphical user interface allows control of Intonato 24 from Mac, Windows, and a range of tablets. Complete configurations, including speaker set-up parameters, EQ, subwoofer settings, input source patching and down-mix preferences can be stored as ‘profiles’ and ‘scenes’ and instantly recalled (even mid-session) to meet the requirements of specific projects and clients. The optional Intonato Desktop Controller puts monitor system control at your fingertips, providing elegant control of system volume, recall of user-configured scenes, activation of speaker mutes and solos, and other frequently used features.

Intonato 24 pairs with JBL 7 Series and JBL M2 Master Reference studio monitors to create the first complete monitoring system designed for immersive audio production in control rooms of any size. While Intonato 24 was designed as the hub of JBL’s new 7 Series installed reference monitor system, the unit can be used with any passive or powered speaker. In addition, Harman Blu link network protocol allows Intonato 24 to be digitally networked with Crown power amplifiers and an assortment of system components.
