InfoComm 2018: Clear-Com Displays E-IPA Connection, Eclipse HX Intercom
Clear-Com, specializing in communications and connectivity solutions, will showcase the E-IPA connection card at InfoComm 2018 — a high-density audio-over-IP connection card for the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom family. Natively AES67 compliant and SMPTE2110-30 ready, the E-IPA card provides 64 streams of low-latency and high audio bandwidth connections for linking existing and new IP-based Clear-Com products. With this card, Clear-Com can deliver up to 256 IP ports in the Eclipse HX-Median and Omega systems.
The E-IPA card comes in 16, 32, 48, and 64-port options, and is compatible with Eclipse HX-Delta, Median and Omega modular systems allowing users to build an extremely dense network with a mix of connectivity options. Compared to other Audio/Intercom-over-IP connectivity options on the market, intercom users can optimize their intercom investment on Eclipse HX and conserve system card slots for other connectivity needs.
For example, Clear-Com’s flagship FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system has an all-new AES67-based IP Wireless Transceiver (IPT). With up to 64 IP ports, the E-IPA card can support up to 64 IPTs and 64 FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks on just one card over AES67 compliant IP networks.
“The E-IPA card is the first of two products to debut on our new IP platform solution,” says Simon Browne, Vice President of Product Management, Clear-Com. “Over the past decade, we have continuously demonstrated our IP leadership with the breadth and depth of IP capabilities for meeting simple to complex communications requirements for the widest set of intercom users. For example, the introductions of IVC-32 IP card, LQ Series, V-Series panels, and Agent-IC extend the reach of our intercom users and connect legacy and modern intercom systems. As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary this year, the company is excited to launch into the next phase of our IP developments, continuing our legacy in providing innovative intercom solutions for linking people together in real-time.”
The E-IPA card and IPT will be featured with Eclipse-HX on Clear-Com’s Booth #C656 at InfoComm 2018, along with a wide range of Clear-Com’s trusted communications solutions.
