Clear-Com Staying Busy in 2010, Signs on with SVG
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Clear-Com as a sponsor. Clear-Com, an HME company, is a global leader in mission-critical voice communication systems for professional productions. Since 1968, the company has developed and marketed a comprehensive range of analog, digital, and IP-based wired and wireless intercom technologies for party-line and point-to-point communications. Production teams around the world have come to depend on Clear-Com for clear, reliable, and scalable communication solutions.
“SVG is the preeminent group in the industry representing live broadcast production of sports events, and Clear-Com has a wide range of products in use for these purposes,” says Bob Boster, VP of sales – Americas and Asia-Pacific. “As the industry’s requirements have been migrating towards more and more intensive remote-production activities, our new product portfolio, which includes extensive wireless and IP offerings, becomes a better fit, and, as such, we need to be in front of our colleagues at SVG.”
This has been a busy year for Clear-Com, with its products used at several major sporting events throughout the first five months. In February, Clear-Com’s Hybrid Network was the intercom system for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and other events at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. In March, Clear-Com’s Tempest 2400 four-channel digital PL system was featured at Wrestlemania 26. Earlier this month, VoICE2 link was deployed by Bexel for coverage coordination of the L.A. Marathon. Clear-Com gear has also been installed in a host of OB and uplink trucks, including a new NHK OB truck that uses the Eclipse Median-based system for baseball and sumo wrestling coverage.
The busy schedule doesn’t stop there. Clear-Com’s VoICE2 link will be used by Brazil’s TV Globo during the 2010 FIFA World Cup to send info back to Rio de Janeiro from South Africa.
