The Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Systems, comprising the Eclipse HX-Omega, Eclipse HX-Median, Eclipse HX-Delta and Eclipse HX-PiCo, offer simplified setup, operation and administration as well as larger system capacity for many audio and user connections. When used along with the Eclipse HX (EHX) Configuration Software, these frames allow users to make system-wide changes rapidly and more efficiently. Clear-Coms V-Series and iStation user panels, along with existing I/O frame cards and interfaces, are compatible with the Eclipse HX range. This gives existing Eclipse customers a seamless and logical way to upgrade.
The new version of the HelixNet¢ Partyline Intercom System on display provides a multi-system linking capability. This function delivers a cost-effective intercom solution for distributing many partyline channels and program audio feeds to dozens of digital beltpacks. Enabling this capability are two new modules: the HLI-ET2 Ethernet Module, for Main Station-to-Main Station networking over a LAN (Local Area Network), and the HLI-FBS Fiber Module, for daisy-chaining fiber interfaces to link Main Stations over long distances.
Tempest2400 with Seamless Roaming adds advanced wireless capabilities to the Tempest2400 digital wireless intercom system. It is ideal for engineers and users who need to move freely throughout large venues separated by sizeable distances. These environments include multi-studio complexes, multi-level facilities and sports arenas. Users can effortlessly and seamlessly roam across 16 different coverage zones without interference or dropouts. With the Seamless Roaming functionality, the systems BaseStations are linked together with the newest ZSync (Zero Synchronization) Technology. ZSync coordinates the hopping patterns of all connected BaseStations, which improves system performance and guarantees a seamless wireless experience without having to change settings on the beltpack.
Clear-Com is also highlighting its expanded partnership with fiber network specialists Optocore and BroaMan. The companies are utilizing Optocore technology at the show for integrated real-time transport, routing, conversion and management of professional video, audio and data via fiber-optic cable.
