Renkus-Heinz Introduces ICC12/3 Iconyx Compact Series Beam Steering Array Speaker

June 10 2020, 17:10
Premium professional loudspeaker manufacturer Renkus-Heinz introduced its newest Iconyx Compact Series 12/3-RN single array module. The new design offers a solution for positioning sound precisely where it's needed, with more flexibility for integrators. The Iconyx Compact Series brings the renowned flexibility of the Iconyx family to a smaller footprint array, filling a need for integrators seeking options in “medium-sized” installations, common in the house of worship, corporate, transportation, education, and government markets.
The new Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Compact ICC12/3 model - shown in white finish - expands the existing Iconix Compact family. 

The Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Compact Series 12/3-RN features an all-new, twelve-channel digital amplifier that powers twelve, 3" (77 mm) full-range, high sensitivity, treated paper cone drivers. With an amplifier and DSP channel for each driver, the flexibility of Iconyx systems is now available in a package nearly 40 percent smaller than the classic Iconyx.

Still, the ICC12/3 model offers the same proven performance, with Renkus-Heinz full RHAON II beam-steering capabilities with the latest U.R.G.O beam algorithms, a movable acoustic center, multiple beam opening angles and high-pass filtering of individual beams. 

"The ICC12/3 is a natural progression of the cutting-edge offerings we’ve released over the past year, with all the fidelity and musicality expected of a Renkus-Heinz product,” says Matt Czyzewski, President of Renkus-Heinz. “It provides a digitally steerable offering in an incredibly compact footprint, allowing for sensational sound in even more locations. We worked with our integration partners and distributors on what they believed they needed to win more jobs and to put sound exactly where they want it. The ICC12/3 is the result of that collaborative work.”

The Iconyx Compact Series brings performance and directivity to spaces where even the classic Iconyx arrays might be too large. The very narrow cabinet disappears into nearly any venue, while the exceptional vertical directivity can help penetrate even the most challenging acoustics, making the exceptional performance of beam-steered line arrays available to even the most architecturally sensitive spaces.

Further, the ICC12/3 offerings are shipping immediately out of Renkus-Heinz' Foothill Ranch, California headquarters. The included wall-mount bracket makes mounting easy and is nearly invisible behind the arrays. Standard RN units have analog and AES inputs, and -RD1 units include Dante network audio.

Renkus-Heinz Strategic Development
Meanwhile, Renkus-Heinz appointed Graham Hendry to the position of Vice President of Strategic Development. Hendry's professional background encompasses engineering, product management and customer facing roles – a unique blend that has allowed him to take on the responsibility for both developing product lines and bringing them to market.

The majority of Hendry's career was spent with Tannoy and TC Group, where he began on the research and development engineering team in 1990. After a stint in commercial integration from 1998 to 2002, he returned to Tannoy – and the brand's ownership teams at TC Group International and later, Music Group – in roles including Engineering Director, Business Development Director, Vice President of Solutions, and Brand Leader.

"My entire career has been focused on premium audio solutions, mainly in the loudspeaker world," Hendry said. "Because of that, joining Renkus-Heinz is a real honor, as well as a natural progression. They're a true technology leader in the space. That said, the development of my career has led me to discover that I very much enjoy dealing with people, and that is also a big part of the draw of Renkus-Heinz. I believe their team is among the best when it comes to putting the customer first. I am very much looking forward to be a pivotal part of that."

"Graham brings a wealth of experience and he will play a critical role in both our strategy development and the execution of that strategy," says Matt Czyzewski, President of Renkus-Heinz. "He will be heavily involved in product development and market development. We're excited to have him on-board."
