Alameda, CA (June 3, 2016)—Panama-based broadcaster Medcom is linking its facilities, trucks and remote users with Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX digital matrix platform over IP connections.
Corporación Medcom Panamá (Medcom), an OTT, radio and TV broadcaster and cable TV company headquartered in Panama City, Panama, interconnects two broadcast facilities, seven production trucks and a number of remote users via Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX.
Medcom has installed a new Eclipse HX-Delta Matrix intercom system for use in its new EMA remote production facility on one side of the Panama City, where the broadcaster is shooting reality TV shows. At the same time, Medcom upgraded its main production facility from an Eclipse Matrix to the new Eclipse-HX Matrix platform, which is 15 miles away from EMA. Now with an Eclipse HX system at each facility, Medcom can connect them over IP and enable all V-Series control keypanel users in both facilities to communicate as one group via the IVC-32 IP frame cards that reside in each Eclipse HX system. All of Medcom’s seven production trucks are also equipped with Clear-Com intercom systems.
“We wanted to provide fast, efficient communications between our main offices, where our Master Control facilities are located, and our EMA remote studio facility,” said Antonio Perez, Medcom’s senior operations and project manager. “Clear-Com has been our intercom provider for the last 20 years. We installed the Eclipse Matrix 12 years ago and we have continued to expand and upgrade it through the years.”
