Clear-Com Unveils New LINQ Product Line At IBC

New Product family underlines Clear-Com’s continuing leadership in linking technology for connecting audio and communications systems over IP networks.

By PSW Staff September 15, 2014

Based on Clear-Com’s patented I.V.-Core technology, LINQ provides the industry with the next step in intercom/audio linking technology.

At IBC 2014 Clear-Com will introduce the LINQ product line, a series of compact devices that enable connection of two-wire partyline with call signaling and four-wire audio over LAN, WAN or Internet IP infrastructures.

Based on Clear-Com’s patented I.V.-Core technology, LINQ provides the industry with the next step in intercom/audio linking technology.

LINQ is available in two-wire (LINQ-2W2) or four-wire (LINQ-4W2) options. The LINQ-2W2 is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible. The LINQ-4W2 can interconnect with devices, such as analog ports of any matrix intercom system, analog telephone circuits, two-way radio gateways and audio consoles. A maximum of six LINQ IP interfaces can be linked together in any 2- or 4-wire combination.

LINQ uses the OPUS high quality audio CODEC. The bitrate, bandwidth, and delay can be changed quickly and smoothly without introducing any distortion or discontinuity in the audio. As a low audio latency communication link, LINQ can be used for natural intercom conversation, networked music performances and for audio signals that are transported via different facilities (transmission synchronization).

The creation of virtual partylines within a linked group is an exclusive feature. Channels from any of the six devices in the network can be linked to create common virtual partylines. At least two channels must be associated to each other. LINQ utilizes a touch-friendly web-based user interface to configure, control and monitor any device within a linked group.

Stephen Sandford, Product Manager, Clear-Com, said, “Clear-Com continues to lead the field of connecting or extending intercom over IP. LINQ is a simple yet significant development that enables users to expand their remote communications quickly and easily.”
