Clear-Com®, a Vitec Group brand, the global leader of trusted intercom solutions, will be demonstrating — for the first time — the complete Eclipse family of digital matrix intercom platforms at NAB2006 from April 24-27 in Las Vegas . The Eclipse line offers broadcast professionals unparalleled flexibility, versatility and expandability to match changing communication needs.

Clear-Com developed three matrix platforms to meet unique needs and broadcast environments:

Eclipse-PiCo
Compact and highly functional, the PiCo is ideal for mobile production as well as
small-to medium-sized studio integration and sports facilities.

Key features include:
• 36 full-duplex communication and 4-wire ports in a 1-RU frame
• Two frames can be joined to form a high-speed, linked 64-port system
with failsafe redundancy
• 24bit, 48kHz digital processing
• Standard power supply redundancy

Eclipse-Median
A new, mid-sized system, the Median cleverly combines the matrix platform and interface frame to meet the confined space demands of OB vehicles, mobile flight case systems – anywhere rack space is at a premium.

Key features include:
• Up to 112 ports
• Interfaces for fiber, telephone and 4-wire connectors
• Dual CPU and PSU redundancy
• UL, CE and PSE (JP) approvals

Eclipse-Omega
Powerful and flexible, the Omega offers the highest port density of any available system. It is ideal for studio system use and capable of serving large-scale venues such as multiple theater sites and national sports stadiums. IP connectivity means systems can be linked across cities and even countries.

Key features include:
• Advanced digital matrix frame
• 240 ports in only a 6-RU frame
• Up to 127 frames can be joined into one non-blocking 1,302-port matrix system
• Comprehensive interfacing with other matrix systems
• Full redundancy

The Eclipse systems are supported with Eclipse Configuration Software (ECS) interface. Visual and intuitive, ECS features frame and panel graphics and can focus on, and control labels and functions for individual panel buttons.

Drop-down menus access different features such as label assignments, interfacing, DTMF access and key functions. ECS also has multi-language capability.

Throughout NAB2006, Clear-Com will also showcase the CellCom® family for wireless communications among standalone beltpack and integrated matrix/party line systems as well as the Party-line family of single and multi-channel beltpacks and main stations, wired and wireless communication products at Booth #C5119D. Additionally, the company will conduct CellCom, Eclipse for Broadcast and public safety use in demos in the Central Hall, Suite C206.
