HARMAN offers audio and lighting products for every part of the system, from microphones to loudspeakers, and everything in between. This enables higher education institutions to work with a single supplier for implementing complete systems, perfectly suited to their specific needs. HARMAN offerings include AKG microphones, BSS Audio and dbx signal processing, Crown amplifiers, JBL Professional loudspeakers, and Soundcraft mixing consoles along with Martin Professional lighting instruments.
HARMAN also has a broad offering of simple and managed paging systems for communication applications. HARMAN IDX is a mass communication and visual notification solution that provides a scalable way to distribute live pages, pre-recorded audio, and visual pages to single or multiple buildings. This is ideal for campus-wide notification and emergency alerts. IDX can be used to automate bell schedules or any type of activity where pre-recorded messages can be timed to play on a schedule, or launched by the push of a button. Using a few scalable components, and a building block approach to system design, IDX represents a straightforward solution to even the most demanding applications.
