February 23, 2012
Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is pleased to announce that Y & Co has extended its hire inventory of intercom equipment with two new Clear-Com Eclipse Matrix systems, namely the Eclipse-Median and Eclipse-Pico Digital Matrix, along with the V-Series and ICS user control panels. This additional investment signals Y & Co’s confidence in Clear-Com intercoms’ capabilities to serve the growing live events and broadcast production needs.
A loyal Clear-Com user in France since its opening in 1989, Y & Co is a leading rental company providing audio solutions to live event facilities, tour groups and broadcasters. As a member of the Clear-Com Global Rental Group, Y & Co already supplies a portfolio of Clear-Com intercom systems including partyline systems, HME DX200, HME PRO850 and Tempest2400 wireless systems. In addition, Y & Co’s technical staff are well-trained in Clear-Com technology to provide high-quality equipment installation and support.
Since the purchase of Eclipse Digital Matrix Systems, the company has already rented out the intercom systems to several important events and performances throughout the country. These include Excalibur au Stade de France (Excalibur at the French Stadium), the Convention Renault in Seville and La Fête du Feu à Bercy (the Fire Festival in Bercy). With the support of Clear-Com’s French distributor, Audiopole, which will provide additional intercom equipment as needed – even on short notice, Y & Co is well poised to service a greater number of large, high-profile projects.
“We are very happy to further enhance our relationship with Clear-Com and Audiopole,” says Yves Brunet, Commercial Director for Y & Co. “We have been extremely pleased with Clear-Com since the first Matrix Plus 1 product.
