By PSW Staff • June 20, 2013 The HX-Delta brings the high capacity of Clear-Com’s larger matrices to a compact, cost-effective 3RU frame. Clear-Com is pleased to announce that its new Eclipse HX-Delta Matrix Frame is now shipping worldwide. The HX-Delta brings the high capacity of Clear-Com’s larger matrices to a compact, cost-effective 3RU frame. This smaller frame allows connectivity using IP or fiber as well as seamless integration with wireless and third-party devices without external interface frames. The Eclipse HX-Delta system also offers a new connection paradigm for larger venues such as performing arts complexes. Due to its small size and lower cost, HX-Delta gives users the option of building a distributed matrix system with frames in multiple areas of a facility. This new solution offers a more flexible workflow and permits shorter cable runs between system frames and intercom panels, cutting down on cabling costs. The size of the Eclipse HX-Delta also makes it suited for applications where space is limited but advanced connectivity is required, as with industrial or rental and staging applications. The HX-Delta’s four interface card slots provide users with the flexibility of using a variety of connectivity options. Cards include the E-MADI64-HX 64 bi-directional channel card, the IVC-32-HX IP connection card and the E-Que-HX integrated wireless/E1/T1 trunking card, among others. Three internal slots for interface modules allow the HX-Delta to integrate seamlessly with other third-party communication devices, such as telephones, two-way radios and camera intercoms. The HX-Delta also comes with two CPU cards for redundant system control. “As productions become more complex, our users require the additional connectivity options of a larger matrix frame but do not always have the space to accommodate the larger frame size,” says Stephen Sandford, Product Manager at Clear-Com. “Our new Eclipse HX-Delta bridges this gap between our smaller and larger frames. “With the addition of the Eclipse HX-Delta to the already extensive variety of Eclipse HX frames, Clear-Com provides users with a complete intercom solution for every size and need of a production or application.” The Eclipse HX range, comprising the Eclipse HX-Omega, Eclipse HX-Median, Eclipse HX-Delta and Eclipse HX-PiCo offer simplified setup, operation and administration as well as larger system capacity for many audio and user connections. When used along with the EHX Software, these frames allow users to make system-wide changes rapidly. Clear-Com’s V-Series and iStation user panels, existing frame I/O cards and interfaces are all compatible with the Eclipse HX range. This gives existing Eclipse customers a seamless and logical way to upgrade. Clear-Com Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
