Station-IC is a virtual desktop client that provides a scalable intercom user station on WindowsOS and MacOS computers. Connecting to LQ Series IP Interfaces, Station-IC provides access to the system’s resources which can include one-to-one, one-to-many, partyline, ISO and IFB communication in addition to call signals and logic controls. Individual keyset listening levels help users focus on specific channels while monitoring others. All of this functionality can be tailored to each user to create an efficient intercom user station.
