Interface Connections with Third-Party 4-Wire Audio
In television, complex live events, or any size production, key production crew members typically talk on closed-circuit 2-wire and/or 4-wire intercom systems, restricting external communications devices from joining the intercom loop.
The types of 4-wire audio devices found in many facilities where high-coordination productions take place are existing intercom systems, public announcement (PA) systems, or external audio programs. Concert is able to integrate these 4-wire audio programs into the Concert server and the Concert client.
Concert unifies the intercom equipment over an IP network by supporting a high number of concurrent 4-wire channel connections into the server and in the client via commercially-available audio interface boxes.
Concert easily interfaces with these external audio devices:
• Partyline systems
• Public Announcement systems
• Paging systems
• External audio feed to/from Concert
• 4-wire interface to Clear-Com or third-party matrix systems
• Seamless integration to third-party applications supporting ActiveX
