The latest software update (version 12) for the Clear-Com Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom provides support for SMPTE ST2110-30 and AES67 third-party interoperability as well as FreeSpeak Edge.

EHX v12 enables the connection to or from any third-party device using AES67, the audio standard used in SMPTE ST2110 audio and video IP systems. EHX v12 also allows the configuration and integration of FreeSpeak Edge 5 GHz wireless beltpacks and transceivers. FreeSpeak Edge 5 GHz joins FreeSpeak II 1.9 GHz and 2.4 GHz within the same EHX managed system.

The Eclipse HX system is designed to enable thousands of direct (point-to-point) and one-to-many (group and partyline or conference) audio and data signal distributions/connections. All systems can trunk over redundant fiber or through trunks based on IP (Dante, AES67 and native), MADI and audio Cat-5 without compromising audio quality or performance. For larger systems, Eclipse HX v12 now includes a Cross Ring IP Bridge (CRIB), which is a new intercom trunking scheme that links separate, distant Eclipse-HX intelligent fiber rings over IP bridging trunks.

“The introduction of this latest software update truly does confirm Eclipse HX’s position as the most dynamic, flexible all-IP solution on the market,” says Clear-Com senior product manager Peter Stallard. “The possibilities are endless, especially with the integration of the new FreeSpeak Edge and AES67.”
