Clear-Com puts users in control with V-Series Desktop

Clear-Com Communication Systems is bringing control of its
Eclipse Digital Matrix Intercom System to the user’s fingertips with the new
compact V-Series Desktop unit. This latest addition to its family of V-Series
Panel products can sit on a tabletop or be wall-mounted for quick access and
increased convenience. A leading innovator of communications solutions
for the broadcast, live performance, government and commercial markets,
Clear-Com will be showcasing the new V-Series Desktop at Prolight + Sound 2008.

The desktop unit, complete with a low-profile loudspeaker
and gooseneck microphone, is designed with the user’s needs in mind. Each
of its 12 talk-down/listen-up keys, including one dedicated for Answer-reply,
has individual audio level control. A clear, bright, graphical display shows 10
international characters, including Chinese and Russian, for greater
flexibility in the naming of sources and destinations. The shift button
gives access to eight further switch pages, and the menu button provides access
to assignment and set-up menus.

“The new V-Series Desktop offers the same audio quality our
users have come to expect from all of our user panels and extends it to the
desktop for portability and convenience,” says Jake Dodson, vice president of
product management. “Since it is not rack-mounted, it can be easily moved
throughout the broadcast facility, all with the best, most intuitive display in
the industry. Whether it’s a highly skilled and technical engineer working in a
transmission facility, a producer working in a commentary booth or a journalist
working in their office, V-Series was designed to put the user in control with
the touch of a finger for easy, reliable and seamless communication.”

All panels in the V-Series line feature Clear-Com’s “Listen
Again” technology that employs digital audio memory to allow the user to replay
received incoming calls aiding communication in noisy and demanding
environments, as is common in the broadcast setting.
Advanced digital signaling processing (DSP) gives the
operator increased control over their panel’s audio including Routing, EQ, mic
limiting, headset sidetone, as well as intelligent dimming and local IFBs. Panel keys offer individual
mix level control, allowing users to set personal audio levels to suit
individual workflows. It has been designed to provide
Producer/Commentator dual operation with stereo monitoring, binaural headset
listening, cough switching and local intelligent IFB control/loudspeaker
dimming, giving the users increased control over their audio environment.
