IBC2016: Pliant Technologies launches SmartBoom LITE comms headsets8 September 2016
Pliant Technologies, the new professional intercom division of CoachComm, is introducing the SmartBoom LITE series of headsets at IBC 2016. The new headsets feature high audio quality, advanced features and design enhancements: these include Pliant’s SmartBoom technology, which allows the adjustable microphone boom to act as an on/off switch for quick muting.
The SmartBoom LITE series of headsets come in a non-reflective rubberised matt black finish with a comfort fit adjustable headband, replaceable ear pad and a 1.5m fixed cable. They will be available in 4-pin XLR female, 5-pin XLR male and unterminated versions, making the line adaptable to most communication systems.
“The SmartBoom LITE puts the latest in professional communications technologies into a smaller form factor, which many talent and crew require,” said Gary Rosen, global sales manager for Pliant Technologies. “The series retains the features, comfort and reliability needed in the most demanding professional environments. With SmartBoom LITE, we are expanding our headset product line to cover the diverse needs and preferences of those working in the field.”
Also making its European debut at IBC is the new CrewCom professional wireless intercom (launched at InfoComm 2016). The system is based on a totally new technology platform that is claimed to offer the industry’s highest user density, unparalleled range and scalability. The product features the industry’s smallest fully-featured professional full-duplex wireless radio packs, multiple simultaneous frequency bands, as well as a host of user features.
