CLEAR-COM NOW SHIPPING V-SERIES IRIS PANELS WITH AES67 AUDIO OVER IP

V-Series Iris panels provide improved user experience with vibrant color-based key groups and high-quality uncompressed AES67 audio for improved intercom audio performance

ALAMEDA, USA – February 4, 2018 –The new Clear-Com® V-Series Iris Panels, which provide Eclipse HX users with low latency Audio-over-IP (AoIP) using AES67, are now shipping.

The V-Series Iris panel can monitor and send communications over three concurrent AES67-compliant uncompressed audio IP streams, enabling systems to deliver high quality, uncompressed audio from intercom user to user with significantly reduced latency. When connected to Clear-Com’s new high-density E-IPA card, which is natively AES67 compliant, users can deploy up to 64 Iris panels per card. The Iris panel also offers fully user-configurable color OLED displays, providing the user label, tally and port information. EHX Supervisor Mode real time control allows label updates and monitoring on the fly.

The V-Series Iris panel is ideal for productions that have fully converted to IP-based communications for distribution of video and audio. Live production teams will also benefit from the full color OLED displays, allowing teams to quickly view and process channel information simply by the colors displayed, keeping their focus on the performance. In addition, production teams can take advantage of the flexibility offered by combining

V-Series Iris panels and multiple E-IPA cards; for example, a large sporting event might use a single frame with many wireless/panel connections on the same intercom network to cover an entire stadium, or mega-churches may create multi-region intercom networks via LAN, WAN or the Internet to help broadcast services to churches around the world.

“As the adoption of IT-centric communication continues, Clear-Com’s extensive IP intercom range ensures that the widest range of communication requirements can be met,” said Stephen Sandford, Senior Product Manager, Clear-Com. “The addition of the V-Series Iris panel makes the Eclipse HX line-up even more accommodating and flexible for customers’ varying needs.”

The V-series Iris panel is optimized for use with EHX 11.0 software to fully implement its AES67 connectivity, real time control and color tallies; it also has I.V. Core IP and 4-wire connections for backward compatibility with Eclipse frames running EHX 10.0 or earlier.
