Alameda, CA (April 5, 2018)—At NAB 2018, Clear-Com will present Agent-IC 2.2, the latest version of its free app that expands intercom access via mobile devices including all three versions of the Apple Watch.
The Agent-IC App enables smartphones and tablets to connect to Clear-Com’s Eclipse-HX matrix system or to the LQ Series IP Interfaces that facilitate connections to any partyline system, either locally or remotely.
Now, with this optional feature in Agent-IC 2.2, Apple Watch users no longer need to use their iPhones to initiate or respond to calls. With a tap on the wrist, Apple Watch users are notified of an intercom call, can see the I.D. of the intercom caller and can respond via a paired Bluetooth headset or an iPhone.
Haptic signaling on the wearer’s wrist means that calls are not missed even when background noise is high. Users can also view the call on the watch face, eliminating the need to reach for their iPhone in situations when such an action may be inappropriate.
The Agent-IC interface on the Apple Watch features a start-up screen, allowing selection of the host intercom system and user profile using the Digital Crown on the watch, with buttons on screen to initiate and terminate connections.
“As the biggest wearable brand by market share, we are excited to expand the Agent-IC app capability to Apple Watches, extending the experience and convenience to a large set of existing Apple Watch owners on the Clear-Com intercom systems,” said Peter Stallard, Senior Product Manager of Clear-Com. “Agent-IC already works on Android wearables and has overall app usage increasing at a very fast pace. This new added capability will take adoption to the next level.”
Agent-IC 2.2 will be worn and demonstrated by staff on Clear-Com’s booth at NAB 2018.
