CLEAR-COM PRESENTS MAJOR ENHANCEMENTS TO HELIXNET AT AES NY 2017

CLEAR-COM PRESENTS MAJOR ENHANCEMENTS TO HELIXNET AT AES NY 2017

Clear-Com®, the leader in wired, wireless and IP communications solutions, will present the latest enhancements to the HelixNet all-digital networked partyline intercom system on Booth 828 at AES NY 2017. The latest features include binaural listening in the HelixNet HXII-BP-X5 beltpack, a six-fold increase in I/O ports, and direct connections to the Agent-IC mobile app and VoIP phones.

Binaural Listening on HelixNet Beltpack

The HelixNet HXII-BP-X5 Beltpack now features binaural (split ear) functionality to enable program feed from one channel to one ear, while the feed from the intercom channel is heard on the other ear. This feature adds to the existing capability of mixing audio from both channels in both ears.

Increase in I/O Ports

By simply connecting Clear-Com LQ Series devices to the HelixNet Mainstation via an Ethernet module, users can gain up to 24 audio I/O ports assigned to any of the 12 or 24 intercom channels in HelixNet. These additional ports supplement the HelixNet ports for interfacing with 2-wire and/or 4-wire intercom or audio devices, effectively creating a much higher density digital partyline intercom system. Since HelixNet and LQ are linked over LAN and WAN IP networks, users have the flexibility to move these extra audio connections to the next room or the other side of a facility. Signals from any remote devices are routed over IP to the assigned HelixNet end point(s).

New IP connections with Agent-IC and VoIP Telephony users

Through the LQ interface, any user on the HelixNet system is now able to communicate with users on Clear-Coms Agent-IC mobile apps running on smart iOS or Android devices over Wi-Fi, as well as users on VoIP phones via SIP connection. This ability is especially useful in applications where core production team members on the HelixNet system may need to add a few extra intercom positions at remote locations or for contributing users; or for a production member to switch their comms connection to their smart phone or a VoIP phone in order to step away from their assigned position momentarily. This option is now possible and cost-effective with LQ.

At AES NY, Clear-Com is a sponsor of the Broadcast Audio Expo, the Broadway Sound Expo, and the Live Sound Expo, as well as presenting at two conference sessions: broadcast production networking on Wednesday, October 18 at 10.30am and Theatre Sound Infrastructure on Thursday, October 19 at 13.00.

Clear-Coms LQ Series of IP interfaces and the HelixNet digital partyline system will be on display on Booth 828 at AES NY 2017, which runs from October 18-20 at the Jacob J Javits Convention Center, New York.

AES NY 2017 is co-located with NAB NY 2017, where Clear-Com can be found at Level 3, Hall B, Booth N332.
