Clear-Com Showcases Complete IP-Based Intercom Solutions
At IBC2019, Clear-Com will present a broad range of IP-based products and professional intercom communication tools, including new support for SMPTE 2110-30 and support for a broad range of solutions designed to meet the challenges of all IP-based production workflows, including remote production.
Solutions showcased on the booth include the V-Series Iris intercom panel working alongside a new version of Eclipse HX which will now support SMPTE 2110-30 and AES67 interoperability. This addition marks the completion of the Eclipse HX system growth into the most flexible and dynamic all-IP intercom solution on the market. The unique IP toolset within Eclipse provides a range of powerful benefits including: LAN/WAN/Internet-based panel deployment, simple configuration, unique IP-based control mechanisms include HCI and Logic-Maestro, the ability to interface and leverage third party devices, LQ, SIP, and Agent-IC integration, and AES67 support for wireless and wired interconnects.
The V-Series Iris Panel can monitor and send communications over three concurrent full-duplex uncompressed audio IP streams, enabling systems to deliver high quality, uncompressed AES67 audio from user to user with significantly reduced latency.
Also featured on the Clear-Com booth will be the LQ Series IP Interfaces. These audio-over-IP interfaces allow users to move and distribute audio and communications signals, SIP and Network Control Events (GPIO) to and from one or more communication points depending on user configuration. Geographically-dispersed audio and communications devices of any brand or technology type can be networked over secure LAN, WAN or even public internet.
FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system is another chapter in Clear-Com’s IP story. The FreeSpeak II IPT Transceiver utilises the AES67 transport, low latency signal distribution, high radio performance and high audio bandwidth, all of which enables FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks to be deployed across a user’s LAN. The IPT connects to an AES67-compatible IP router and to Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX system via the E-IPA card.
For outside broadcasts or productions with crews split across large areas, Clear-Com’s Agent-IC mobile app can be downloaded onto Apple or Android mobile devices, connecting securely and confidently to core intercom users across multiple IP networks over 3G, 4G and WiFi. At IBC2019 Clear-Com will be showing a Sonimâ Androidâ ruggedised phone running both Agent-IC and the Trilogyâ Mobile App, ideally suited for outdoor broadcast and other harsh environments, including marine.
Bob Boster, President, Clear-Com, said: “We are delighted to be showcasing our latest offerings at IBC2019 and playing an important part in the industry-wide adoption of an all-IP production workflow. We are also excited to be launching a ground-breaking new product at the show. We invite everyone to join us on our stand on Saturday from 16.00 – 18.00 to raise a toast to our exciting news”.
Clear-Com’s IP matrix solutions, the V-Series Iris panel, FreeSpeak II, LQ Series, Agent-IC and a wide range of Clear-Com’s other trusted communications solutions will be available for demonstration on Clear-Com’s booth 10.D29 at IBC2019.
