ISE 2014: Clear-Com to present range of intercom solutions

Clear-Com will showcase several new intercom systems and product enhancements for a wide range of applications and environments at this year’s ISE.

Ideal for theatres, convention centres, multi-campus venues and stadiums, the new Eclipse HX-Delta digital matrix system, extended HelixNet Partyline intercom system (pictured) and enhanced Tempest 2400 wireless intercom system will be displayed on stand 11-D54.

Eclipse HX-Delta is designed to provide an ideal balance of speed, capacity, capabilities and performance in a 3RU frame. It offers up to 256 internal ports, includes two CPU cards and is equipped with four interface cards and three interface modules. The matrix can connect users over dedicated CAT5, IP infrastructures (LAN, WAN and internet), and fibre networks. It also has the ability to seamlessly integrate with digital wireless beltpacks and IP-based virtual panels.

Additionally, interface modules enable external sources such as four-wire audio, partylines, telephone lines and MADI to be routed to user keypanels or beltpacks. Powered by new EHX v7.5 software, up to 64 Eclipse HX matrices can be connected to form one networked installation.

The Tempest digital wireless intercom’s CCT-RT-EX remote line extender can be used to increase the maximum distance between a Tempest BaseStation and the remote antenna transceiver. This increase can be as much as 914 metres with a single line extender, or 609 metres for each line extender when two or three are used, for an overall coverage of up to 2,286 metres.

Tempest2400’s Seamless Roaming feature allows BeltStation users to move freely between up to 16 different BaseStations (coverage areas or zones) without interference or dropouts. These further increase Tempest’s wireless communications capabilities for live productions, multi-level facilities and sports arenas staged in RF-heavy environments.

“At Clear-Com, we strive to provide our customers with intercom systems that work for most applications and in different environments, from a basic two-wire beltpack install to a multi-building campus,” said Simon Browne, director of product management, Clear-Com. “The solutions we are presenting at ISE this year are designed to scale into larger systems and extend access to local or geographically-dispersed user groups without compromising audio clarity, reliability and system performance.”

Clear-Com is available in the UK through Orbital Sound.
