With the HelixNet Firmware Release 4.2, the HelixNet Plug-and-Go IP Intercom System now has the elastic capacity to add stations dynamically without system interruption, hardware, or software pre-configuration. This update also enhances talker identification, allowing visual indication of active talkers on channels and selective tagging of important talkers with an automatic call signal, in addition to additional user station administrative functionality.

The HelixNet HRM-4X remote station is a 1RU 4-channel intercom user station with utility connections for Program Audio input and Stage Announce output, supported by the HMS-4X main station.

Note: Access the HelixNet Cabling Calculator to calculate estimated maximum cable length for a single Clear-Com HelixNet digital partyline connection.

The HelixNet IP networking guide provides specifications, best practices and guidance for the integration of HelixNet into an existing or new IP network.
