Clear-Com to introduce hybrid TDM/IP intercom network
Clear-Com Communication Systems will unveil a hybrid Time-Divisional Multiplexing (TDM) intercom/IP server network at the 2009 NAB Show. The network combines the reliability of TDM-based architecture with the flexibility and affordability of the company’s I.V.Core technology. It’s designed to extend the reach of intercom systems to more users.
At the heart of the network is Eclipse Version 5.1, which now includes IVC-32, a 32-channel IP matrix card. Via the IVC-32, the Eclipse Median and Omega frames now link directly users of Clear-Com’s IP-enabled V-Series control panels and Clear-Com Concert 2.0. This type of intercom connectivity not only expands the intercom footprint in a broadcast facility, but also it can be implemented on an existing IT network infrastructure.
