“At Pliant Technologies, it has always been a priority to create customer-friendly state-of-the-art communications solutions,” said Gary Rosen, vice president of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “With the ever-changing RF landscape worldwide, Pliant products must constantly evolve to meet the demands of many different production environments. The systems’ downloadable firmware updates provide broadcasters and a range of production applications with adaptable solutions that fit almost any intercom-related need. At IBC2019, alongside the latest CrewCom system, we are excited to showcase our newest accessories, including the FleXLR – a small headset connector solution with big capabilities.”

Pliant’s line of communications headsets incorporates a convenient flip up microphone muting feature and are designed for comfort, flexibility and durability as needed in professional environments.

The new Drop-in Charger (PBT-RC-66) allows six Radio Packs (RPs) plus six additional batteries to charge in the same device for more effective battery management on location. The CrewCom Fiber Hub (CHB-8F) expands system capabilities for a more efficient system deployment by allowing up to eight fiber connections using standard SFP-based connectivity supplied with single mode fibre ports along with a single RJ-45 copper port to interface to existing CrewNet connections. The addition of a new compact FleXLR gender adapter gives users the flexibility to connect headsets to devices with non-matching 4- and 5-pin XLRs, such as CrewCom radio packs or control units, while allowing customers to choose from a larger range of compatible headsets.
