Celebrating 50 years of providing communication to all kinds of productions Clear Com had some neat new items at NAB this year.
The all-new FreeSpeak II IP Transceiver (IPT) based on Clear-Com’s new IP Platform solution allows FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks to be addressed across a user’s LAN. Additional enhancements support a higher density of users per transceiver as well. Existing FreeSpeak II beltpacks may be upgraded to work with the IPT through a simple firmware update.
Transceivers are connected to an AES67 IP-router and to the Eclipse HX system fitted with Clear-Com’s E-IPA high density audio-and-intercom-over IP system card. Each E-IPA card—also native AES67 based– provides up to 64 ports of IP connections which effectively supports 64 IPTs. The IPT Transceiver can be powered from a PoE switch or local power source. Direct fiber connection is also available on each IPT.
Clear-Com’s new version 4.0 of the LQ-Series interfaces are available as a compact box or a 1RU panel; that can connect 2-wire, 4-wire and 4-wire with GPIO audio and call signaling over IP networks. LQ Series devices can also connect to Eclipse HX frames via the IVC-32-HX interface card over LAN, WAN and Internet. Agent-IC and SIP/VoIP connectivity can be added. The LQ Series also provides extra I/O ports to HelixNet systems, and you can configure from one CCM browser tool. It’s Networked Control Events feature moves control signals from one or more end-points to any end-point on the same channel.
