Clear-Com’s V-Series Desktop unit.Frankfurt, Germany (March 13, 2008)–Clear-Com Communication Systems is releasing its compact V-Series Desktop unit for use with the Eclipse Digital Matrix Intercom System.
The unit can sit on a tabletop or be wall-mounted, and has 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, and the shift button gives access to eight further switch pages, while the menu button provides access to assignment and set-up menus.
“The new V-Series Desktop offers the same audio quality our users have come to expect from all of our user panels and extends it to the desktop for portability and convenience,” says Jake Dodson, vice president of product management. “Since it is not rackmounted, it can be easily moved throughout the broadcast facility, all with the best, most intuitive display in the industry. Whether it’s a highly skilled and technical engineer working in a transmission facility, a producer working in a commentary booth or a journalist working in their office, V-Series was designed to put the user in control with the touch of a finger for easy, reliable and seamless communication.”
All panels in the V-Series line feature Clear-Com’s “Listen Again” technology that employs digital audio memory to allow the user to replay received incoming calls. Digital signaling processing (DSP) gives the operator increased control over the panel’s audio, including Routing, EQ, mic limiting, headset side-tone, as well as dimming and local IFBs. Panel keys offer individual mix level control, allowing users to set personal audio levels to suit individual workflows. It has been designed to provide Producer/Commentator dual operation with stereo monitoring, binaural headset listening, cough switching and local intelligent IFB control/loudspeaker dimming.
