Clear-Com brings intercom control to the desktop
Bringing convenience and portability to crew communications, Clear-Com Communication Systems has introduced its Eclipse Digital Matrix Intercom System in the form of the new compact V-Series Desktop unit. The new V-Series Panel products can sit on a tabletop or be wall-mounted for quick access and convenience.
Complete with a low-profile loudspeaker and gooseneck microphone, each of its 12 talk-down/listen-up keys, including one dedicated for answer-reply, has individual audio level control. A graphical display shows 10 international characters, including Chinese and Russian, for greater flexibility in the naming of sources and destinations. The shift button gives access to eight further switch pages, and the menu button provides access to assignment and set-up menus.
All panels in the V-Series feature Clear-Com’s Listen Again technology that includes digital audio memory to allow users to replay received incoming calls aiding communication in noisy and demanding environments.
Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) gives operators increased control over their panel’s audio including routing, EQ, mic limiting, headset sidetone, as well as intelligent dimming and local IFBs. Panel keys offer individual mix level control, allowing users to set personal audio levels to suit individual workflows. It also offers producer/commentators dual operation with stereo monitoring, binaural headset listening, cough switching and local intelligent IFB control/loudspeaker dimming.
