CNBC’s Englewood Cliffs, NJ complex—which sports a newsroom, four studios, and outside broadcast locations—recently brought in wireless communication equipment/services company Jetwave Wireless (Alexandria, VA) to connect all corners of the massive facility via intercom. The result was a new, integrated Clear-Com wireless intercom system.
The system consists of Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX-Medium system frame with two E-Que-HX (FreeSpeak II) cards for seamlessly enabling four FreeSpeak II splitters, 25 wireless beltpacks and 20 transceiver modules.
“We chose the FreeSpeak II operating in the 1.9 GHz band because it provides a clear, low interference intercom service,” said Jim Dugan, owner of Jetwave Wireless. “The team at CNBC is also very happy with FreeSpeak II’s wireless beltpacks.”
The financial broadcaster has since purchased an additional FreeSpeak II system from Jetwave Wireless for installation at CNBC’s New York Stock Exchange studios.
