Clear-Com has announced its return to the upcoming 2022 AES Convention in New York this October 19-20 following a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, where the new V-Series IrisX panel will be making its U.S. debut while the Arcadia Central Station, now with HelixNet Digital Network Partyline integration, will be showcased as well at booth #628.
Arcadia Central Station is a scalable IP intercom platform that integrates HelixNet and Clear-Com Encore intercom user stations with the FreeSpeak digital wireless platform. Additional built-in connectivity allows third-party intercom, two-way radios, and Dante devices to be managed in a single system. Arcadia’s scalability allows it to meet numerous production needs in supporting more than 100 beltpacks and offering configurations from 16 ports up to 128 IP ports as needed.
Also also noted, the show will serve as the U.S. debut of the new V-Series IrisX Panel, which expands the capabilities of the original model in delivering new thin-film-transistor (TFT) displays for increased brightness and better resolution combined with the V-Series Iris’ lower latency and increased port capacity. IrisX is designed to fit naturally into IP-based productions with AES67 connectivity and dual NIC connections in addition to taking advantage of role-based workflows.
Show attendees will also be able to see features introduced in the EHX 13 software update of the Eclipse HX Digital Matrix, including N+1 redundancy and dual network support. Support for NMOS IS-04 and IS-05, scheduled to be released in 13.1, will be shown as proof of concept.
While Clear-Com will officially exhibit on the AES roster, the company invites guests of the NAB show to visit its booth as well. “We are grateful for and excited by the strong return of live events and Broadway,” said Bob Boster, president of Clear-Com. “Of all industries that suffered during Covid-19 closures, the live market was probably the most affected. We are excited to return to New York this year to celebrate a new era of live entertainment, as well as meet with our contacts in this important broadcast market.”
