Clear-Com Brings Expanded Set of Intercom Innovation for Broadcast Productions to IBC 2021

New products Arcadia, FreeSpeak Edge Base Station, and Station-IC available for demonstration at the first major Broadcast tradeshow in years

ALAMEDA, USA – Nov 09, 2021 – Clear-Com® will be returning to IBC this year, exhibiting in Hall 10 on Stand D29 from December 3 – 6. IBC is one of the most influential shows for the broadcast sector, where Clear-Com has been the market leader in innovative intercom solutions for over five decades. Clear-Com will be bringing their latest product releases – Arcadia™ Central Station, FreeSpeak Edge® Base Station and Station-IC™ Virtual Desktop Client, as well as their other trusted broadcast solutions.  

“We couldn’t be happier to be back in Amsterdam for this flagship show,” said Chris Willis, VP of Sales. “During the world’s hiatus from in-person shows, Clear-Com has developed several new products that we are eager to share with our partners, customers and end-users, face-to-face.”

Featured on the stand will be the new, award-winning Arcadia Central Station, a scalable IP platform that integrates wired and digital wireless partyline systems along with third-party Dante devices in a single rack unit. Arcadia was designed for a broad range of applications, including OB production vans, broadcast studios and wide-area campus broadcast. In short, it is an ideal fit for customers who are looking to integrate their wired and wireless solutions into a single, seamless system. The system scales to meet varying production needs, offering a base-level of 32 IP ports which can be expanded to up to 96 IP ports as needed.

Also on the stand will be the FreeSpeak Edge Base Station, an IP base station that supports the full range of FreeSpeak™ digital wireless intercom solutions including 1.9 GHz, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, as well as third-party Dante devices. Designed for quick deployment, users can be up and running with a transceiver and two beltpacks in less than 5 minutes. Other user-friendly features include a default system set-up right out of the box, the ability to add transceivers on the fly from the front panel, and to add beltpacks via USB. All these features result in a system that is ideally suited for live broadcast.

The Station-IC Virtual Desktop Client will complete the range of new products being featured on the stand. Station-IC was born out of the success of the Agent-IC mobile app and brings the same intuitive UI to any Windows or MacOS user desktop. Connecting to Eclipse® HX IP-capable matrices or LQ® Series IP Interfaces, Station-IC can extend communications access to any remote location, quickly and easily, and is ideally suited for scenarios where key contributors of a production are required to remote-in to the main broadcast facility.  

Existing solutions that will be at the show include Eclipse HX Digital Matrix with the E-IPA interface card for IP connectivity, V-Series Iris™ Panels with built-in IP connectivity for Eclipse HX, and the Agent-IC® Mobile App, with fully-featured intercom capabilities when core users are required to be away on remote location.   

The newly updated Trilogy™ Mentor RG and CX system, now with dual gigabit network ports for improved network connectivity, will also be featured on the stand. The Trilogy Mentor system generates synchronized video, audio and timecode signals for broadcast and other mission critical system purposes to an extremely accurate time signature.

“Since our last time exhibiting at IBC, we have grown our already extensive set of intercom solutions for broadcast productions, and we are excited to showcase our developments at this convention, in-person. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to IBC 2021,” concludes Chris.
