Audio-Technica, Clear-Com’s German Partner, has created an exciting new video case study about how the LQ Series, combined with Eclipse HX, created a powerful IP infrastructure to support a huge worship leadership event spanning 3 days, which was broadcast live and streamed across 6 sites in Germany.
On March 24, 2018, Clear-Com supported Craig Abaya and his team at the Bay Area Music Awards with a complete FreeSpeak II solution. The project was particularly challenging with nine camera people, being directed by one person in a densely packed RF environment. The staff of Craig were freelancers that needed to quickly learn the system with intuitive user interface and rugged design. And, as this was a rock and roll show, it was a high noise environment which required significant isolation and high audio quality to ensure audibility.
For clear, reliable and high quality production communication at the 2017 Summer Universiade Games in Taipei, Clear-Com’s integrated Eclipse HX, HelixNet, and FreeSpeak II system was the winning solution for this live event. The Eclipse HX served as the heart of the intercom solution, with V-Series keypanels, the HelixNet digital partyline intercom and 40+ FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks connecting all stationed and mobile production users positioned all over the huge stadium. The solution was supplied, install and operated by Winly, with additional support from The P.A. People (a Clear-Com Global Rental Group Partners).
Arcadia Spectacular 2017 at Glastonbury wrapped up on 25th June, and it left audiences around the world breathless, offering a unique, immersive multi-media experience featuring fireballs, lasers and aerial performances. With so many special effects and aerial performances, safety is paramount. Without clear, concise communication the production team wouldn’t be able to operate in a safe way. The show’s technical team relied on Clear-Com solutions to ensure constant communication across the wide and extremely loud set.
Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system linked to a HelixNet digital network partyline intercom system, with around 20 FreeSpeak II beltpacks and 25 HelixNet beltpacks, converged into one overall system to connect the entire production team. The system was used with two different modes: the ‘performance show mode’ was primarily led by the showcaller, while the second mode allowed each department to have its own separate and private group on the system, including the flame team, management team and performance teams.
“From my time in the industry, Clear-Com has been rock-solid through corporate, rock and roll and theatre, so it was the only choice to go with,” Tim Smith, Technical Production Manager for Arcadia Spectacular. “There was no-one else really to compare.”
