News: Clear-Com Introduces Key New Products for Helixnet™ Partyline Intercom System
New Units Round Out Digital Partyline Range
(Alameda, United States--March 26, 2014) Clear-Com® has announced the launch of three new product units that add significant flexibility and functionality to its HelixNet™ Partyline Intercom System. The new units - HRM-4X Remote Station, HKB-2X Speaker Station and S-Mount - extend the digital product range by allowing many more stations to be added to the system.
HelixNet is the industry’s first digital network partyline intercom system. It was designed as a digital version of Clear-Com’s industry-standard analog partyline system, bringing simplicity, efficiency and a powerful set of intelligent features to those users who require a cost-effective digital communication solution. Up to now the HelixNet line has consisted of the HMS-4X Main Station, the HBP-2X HelixNet Beltpack and several interface modules. The newly launched units are:
Simon Browne, Head of Product Management, Clear-Com, said, “Our analog partyline system, Encore, has been providing critical production communication capabilities for over 45 years. While the functionality of HelixNet is quite similar to Encore, it is however much more dynamic and flexible, plugs and plays elegantly with most existing cable infrastructure, and allows more intercom channels and users to be on a single system or to be networked than ever before. HelixNet has proved immensely popular with those that require a simple yet effective digital communication system. These new additions to the HelixNet line round out our digital partyline offering and will continue to provide numerous user benefits that have not been delivered by any digital partyline system before.”
The HelixNet family of products, together with a wide range of other Clear-Com solutions, will be available for demonstration on Stand C8008 at NAB 2014.
