Alameda, CA (April 22, 2010)–Clear-Com Communication Systems has launched an enhanced version of its Concert intercom software, which offers new external audio-interfacing capabilities.
With this connectivity option, Concert can interface with external audio systems, including party-line systems, paging systems, program feeds and other matrix systems using a four-wire interface over a standard IP network.
In most television productions, communications among key production crewmembers typically take place over closed-circuit 2- and/or 4-wire intercom systems, restricting other users from joining the intercom loop. Concert, an Intercom-over-IP solution, reportedly allows authorized users with internet access to communicate with other crewmembers using hard-wired panels and wireless beltpacks on the party-line and/or matrix intercom circuit who are using hard-wired panels and wireless beltpacks.
In addition, Concert can now accept and send audio through a facility’s public announcement system, program feed and other 4-wire audio devices via most commercially available audio interface boxes.
