ISE 2014: Clear-Com enhances Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Intercom system3 February 2014
Clear-Com has made major enhancements to its Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Intercom System in the last year, with the compact 3RU Eclipse HX-Delta matrix frame set to make its debut at ISE 2014 in February.
New capabilities of the Eclipse HX system include Ethernet/IP Intelligent Trunking with IVC-32-HX card redundancy, as well as dual-label and Arabic language support for V-Series panels. These new additions are said to be particularly ideal for mobile production and multi-location production facilities that require agile and flexible communications solutions.
The Eclipse HX-Delta system is designed for installation across many different production environments, from mobile broadcast trucks to smaller and multi-level studios. The Eclipse HX-Delta intercom system provides two CPU cards for redundant system control, along with the option of up to four varied I/O frame cards and up to three interface modules in a 3RU frame.
Instead of installing large system frames in just one location, the Eclipse HX-Delta gives users the option of building a distributed matrix system. This is said to offer a more flexible workflow and permits shorter cable runs between system frames and intercom panels, cutting down on cabling costs. The size of Eclipse HX-Delta is a benefit for mobile truck installations where space is limited, but where varied and complex connectivity is required.
Similar to other Eclipse HX system frames, the Eclipse HX-Delta is also supported by the high-performance EHX Configuration Software and can be intelligently linked with Eclipse HX-PiCo, Eclipse HX-Median and Eclipse HX-Omega frames to create seamless local and/or remotely networked intercom systems.
