AccuWeather.com keeps crews connected with Clear-Com

At its headquarters in State College, PA, AccuWeather.com keeps everyone connected with Clear-Com intercom technology. The Eclipse Median Digital Matrix intercom systems, along with a digital wireless network from Clear-Com, form the heart of AccuWeather.com’s intercom network.

AccuWeather.com uses the Eclipse Median, purchased from AZCAR, a Clear-Com dealer, for live hits and setting up IFB feeds. The complete system, designed to support mobile facilities or flyaway systems for large spaces, includes two V-Series V12LDX4 user control panels for each of AccuWeather.com’s studios, and a V-Series V24LDX4 for its control room. Adhering to IFB/PL requirements, the broadcaster also has three sets of TEL-14s and FOR-22 interface modules along with PTX-3 UHF wireless transmitters and PRC-2 UHF wireless receivers.

The system gives employees beltpack-based wireless communications throughout its operations floor, allowing up to 10 beltpacks to roam seamlessly between remote active antennas. The intercom is equipped with an alert feature that maintains contact even when a headset has been removed, and also provides remote battery monitoring and remote microphone kill for greater control and information at the base station. As the system operates in the 1.9GHz band, it can be safely and reliably operated even after the February 2009 reallocation of UHF bands mandated by the FCC.
