Clear-Com launches FreeSpeak II-Base2
Clear-Com has announced the launch of the FreeSpeak II Base Station known as the FreeSpeak II-Base2 at Broadcast Asia 2016.
It supports multiple frequencies on the same base station, and follows the releases of the complementary 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz band wireless intercom beltpacks and transceiver antenna modules.
The FreeSpeak II-Base2 offers three different modes: Base Station for digital signal transmission; a headset master station for operators to communicate with anyone wired or wireless on the system; and a menu user interface for configuring setup and making real-time system changes.
The FreeSpeak II-Base2 is expanded to support up to 25 full-duplex wireless beltpacks and cover a large production area with 10 distributed-antenna transceivers and two transceiver splitters spanning up to 3,200 feet away from the base station.
Similar to its predecessor, the FreeSpeak II-Base2 can provide wireless communication coverage in the 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz frequency bands. This is advantageous in productions where the RF space may be crowded with 2.4GHz or Wi-Fi devices, and the 1.9GHz could be used for production.
In addition to serving as a base station for signal transmission, it can also operate as a headset master station for any user operator to make and receive calls and talk with anyone on the system using the four OLED displays with individual call and talk keys. Multiple 2-wire and 4-wire ports are also available to connect with any industry-standard analog partyline and 4-wire audio devices, respectively.
