LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, JUNE 11, 2008—

Clear-Com® Communication Systems, a brand of The Vitec Group, introduces Version 5.0 of its Eclipse Digital Matrix high-performance intercom system to the Pro AV and contractor market at InfoComm 2008 (Booth C3583), taking intercom communication solutions to the next level. Acting as a central switching unit for communications across a facility, links Clear-Com’s V-Series panels with a CellCom® digital wireless system for cost-effective and universal access to communication in large facilities with greater connectivity options. A leading global provider of professional communication solutions for live performance, broadcast, government and commercial markets, Clear-Com brings increased connectivity and expandability to Version 5.0 through robust E1/T1 telecom connection, fiber linking with intelligent switchover and now AES Digital Connectivity to V-Series panels for increased control of audio for remote operation. Working in conjunction with an E-FIB card, fiber linking between Eclipse intercom matrixes of the Median and Omega classes enables large, even multi-venue productions to network their intercom systems together. Multiple Eclipse systems may then act as one non-blocking matrix using redundant high-capacity fiber, resulting in a large, high-quality, full-duplex communications system for mobile production and studio integration. “Having been in the industry for 40 years, Clear-Com understands the communication needs of the live performance and Pro AV markets,� says Matt Danilowicz, Managing Director. “An effective intercom system needs to be accessible, dependable and flexible to support the production workflow and communication needs throughout a venue. With Version 5.0, we are advancing our technology to broaden access whether in a theater application or across multiple venues where production workers and crew need to be in contact with each other.� The system is also outfitted with features that place the controls at the users’ fingertips. Highly configurable and intuitive V-Series user panels, including the new V-Series Desktop, can be added or removed as production needs change. An AES-6-RJ interface card allows the user to control remote V-Series panels through AES3 stereo digital audio routers and consoles where the Eclipse intercom is required to talk over audio feeds, as often occurs in busy live performance environments. Eclipse Configuration Software (ECS) provides a visual and intuitive user interface, featuring graphical views of the V-Series panels. ECS has the ability to apply or modify labels and control functions to each individual panel button in real-time. Based on a stand alone or client/server concept, programming is done from a PC through Ethernet LAN connections. Status and diagnostic messages are available, allowing systems to be maintained remotely.
