FreeSpeak Edge is the latest addition to the Clear-Com’s family of digital wireless intercom solutions.
FreeSpeak Edge is the most advanced wireless intercom system, and gives the user more control and customisation options, thanks to advanced frequency coordination capabilities and intuitive design features in the system’s transceivers and beltpacks.
Company president Bob Boster told the IBC Daily: “The new product works on the 5GHz frequency, which allows us to add lots of new features and increase the audio quality. Previous digital intercom systems were all clustered around 7kHz, whereas this is using 12kHz broadcast quality audio which could be used on air if required. Other improvements include lower latency; and it is louder, with a lower noise floor.”
The system also has improved ability to deal with RF challenges from major structural barriers, such as domes.
FreeSpeak Edge transceivers and beltpacks offer more customisation and control than before; the beltpack’s design includes asymmetrical concave/convex top buttons for identification at a glance and touch operation; eight programmable buttons; rotary controls on both sides; and a master volume control and flashlight on the bottom. Each transceiver supports 10 beltpacks and includes attenuation and external antennas for custom RF zones as well as wall and mic stand mounting options.
