Pliant Technologies has announced the release of the v1.10 update for its CrewCom professional wireless intercom platform adds two significant new features as well as several enhancements.
Specifically, the update provides a new High Density mode, which is a selectable mode of operation that allows user densities to increase by more than five-fold. When implemented, the new software-selectable mode supports up to 32 radio packs (RPs) on a single radio transceiver (RT) while allowing any of the RPs to communicate using four available full-duplex talk paths.
In addition, users will have the flexibility to simultaneously deploy “Normal” mode-enabled RPs and RTs along with High Density mode-enabled hardware, providing added adaptability for application-specific setups.
“At Pliant, we pride ourselves on providing advanced communication products to the ever-changing needs of the industry, continuously updating our product offerings to provide cutting-edge communications solutions,” says Gary Rosen, vice president of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “By offering this new software and firmware update at no charge to our flagship wireless intercom system, all CrewCom users can now access an additional mode of operation and more features than ever before at no additional cost.”
In addition, a new Auto Configuration function provides a series of menus that walks users through the setup process by plugging in the needed hardware using standard Cat-5e/6 or fiber connections, turning on the Control Unit (CU), and selecting the Auto Configure menu option. If more customization is required or a larger system with more than three RTs needs to be deployed, the CrewWare application can be used to create a tailored system configuration specific to the application.
Further improvements provided by v1.10 include external sync indication on both the CU and in CrewWare, auto system reboot when changing applicable system setup parameters, remote microphone kill per conference, and a new RP Summary menu added to the CU. The new upgrade is free of charge and is now available for direct download from the the company website.
