HiQnet is a protocol developed by Harman Pro for pro-audio devices communication and operation.
HiQnet was developed by the Harman Pro Group System Development & Integration Group (SDIG) during 2004, and announced in January 2005.
IANA declared in february 2004 by Bruce Vander Werf.
HiQnet was designed to be transport independant. As such, it can run on USB, serial RS232 and RS485.
The well known port for HiQnet traffic is 3804.
It is IANA registered under iqnet-port service name.
The HiQnet dissector is mostly functionnal for Ethernet and is available for testing since the 1.99.2 development release.
None for now.
Example capture files
hiqnet_visiremote-soundcraft_session.pcapng.gz A session between Soundcraft's ViSiRemote iPad application and a Soundcraft Si Compact 16 digital mixing console playing around with different values. The VU-meters stream is not part of this capture because it uses another protocol (UDP on port 3333).
A complete list of HiQnet display filter fields will be available in the display filter reference as soon as a stable version is released.
