MARCH 4-6, 2008

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, MARCH 5, 2008--Spotlighting its signature products, Clear-Com® a global leading provider of communications systems, will be exhibiting the Encore™ Party-line Communication System, the compact Eclipse Median Digital Matrix for mid-size to large applications, Eclipse Easi-PiCo Digital Matrix for smaller applications, and the flexible FreeSpeak®10 at this year‘s CABSAT, March 4-6.

A popular intercom system used in theatre, performance, and other live events, the Clear-Com® Party-line allows all users on a given channel to communicate with each other simultaneously. Clear-Com‘s new Encore™ Party-line intercom system continues the tradition of superior audio quality while offering an enhanced user-interface (UI). The rugged metal chassis will continue to stand up to the most demanding environments while the new dark blue body and LED indicators give the line a fresh new look.

Eclipse Median is a neat and compact, 6RU frame uniquely designed for outside broadcast vehicles, mobile flight-case systems, or any production environment where rack space is limited. Despite its small profile, the powerful unit delivers up to 112 CAT-5 panel/4-wire ports with any combination of interface cards for maximum versatility. Designed for smaller applications, Eclipse Easi-PiCo is based on a 16-port Eclipse-PiCo matrix and includes frame, power supply, and external interface cards with a choice of control panels and beltpacks. Designed to run without the need for external software, Easi-PiCo is a true plug and play, entry-level digital matrix intercom package, engineered for easy installation, start up and use.

FreeSpeak®10 brings broad connectivity from a stand alone base station which can connect to Party-line and Digital Matrix intercom systems and enables beltpack-to-beltpack conversations or small group conferences. Users are able to create tightly linked wireless systems with as many as 10 beltpacks and connect them to a wide variety of wired communications. Added to this, the new improved FreeSpeak®10 includes remote beltpack battery monitoring, party-line call alert functionality, beltpack-to-beltpack vibration alerts and enhanced configuration software. The system is robust enough for any broadcast environment and uniquely blends digital matrix technology with a locally distributed wireless “network.”

FreeSpeak® operates license-free in the 1.9 GHz frequency band, free from outside interference.

CABSAT is the Middle East's Leading Electronic Media & Satellite Communications event, which is now entering its 14th year at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, March 4-6. Clear-Com will be showcasing its products at Booth ZO-21 in Zabeel Hall.
