Clear-Com intros 2.4GHz version of FreeSpeak II

AUTHOR: Inavate

Clear-Com will present 2.4GHz and 1.9GHz versions of its FreeSpeak II wireless intercom at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam.

The 2.4GHz version is designed for countries where the 1.9GHz band is prohibited for use and IBC (held at the RAI exhibition centre, September 11-15) marks its first European outing.

It offers the same capabilities as the 1.9GHz, and can operate as a standalone or an integrated wireless intercom solution with Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX matrix system. The 2.4GHz version uses a separate yet similar set of beltpacks and transceiver antennas compared to the 1.9GHz version, the same base station or integrated matrix system can co-operate with a mix of 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz beltpacks and antennas.

When using the base station, up to 20 full-duplex wireless beltpacks using either or both 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz bands can be connected. In an integrated Eclipse HX matrix setup, up to 50 1.9GHz and 40 2.4GHz (or 25 1.9GHz in North America plus 40 2.4GHz) full-duplex wireless beltpacks can be used at the same time by strategically placing up to 20 or more distributed remote antennas to create an expansive roaming coverage zone. These beltpack users are then able to directly communicate with any other remote or local matrix panel or other wireless or wired beltpack user who is on the Eclipse HX Matrix System network.
