Following the launch of the company late last year, punQtum has unveiled its first product with the new Q110 beltpack, the initial element of a larger networked intercom system designed to offer up to 32 partylines via standard IP networks and infrastructures.
All Q110 functionality is designed to be easily accessible due to ergonomically designed buttons and a color display. In a stand-alone capacity, the Q110 offers access to two channels of partyline intercom, and besides being powered via standard PoE switches, it also offers the option to daisy-chain up to eight units on a single wire. The feature set also allows for any missed comms to be replayed in a “voice-mail” style setup.
The punQtum intercom system is designed to integrate with AES67-compliant networks such as Audinate Dante and RAVENNA. In addition, the company will shortly release a multi-platform editing software for configuration and management of systems.
“The Q110 beltpack offers all the benefits of digital technology in a package that’s as easy to use as any analog intercom,” says punQtum CEO Arie van den Broek. “It’s flexible, scalable, plug-and-play right out of the box, and extremely accessible price-wise. It’s got all the features you need, and none that you don’t – in other words, it’s a truly useful, workmanlike product, and completely representative of the ethos of our company. We’re proud to deliver it as our first product and we can assure you that there is more to come.”
