LQ link up secures intercom and audio over IP10 February 2015
The LQ Series linking family and new capabilities in the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom systems are being showcased at ISE 2015.
Clear-Com claims its new LQ Series is a fast and simple solution to extend or link intercom or audio to any remote location over secure IP network – LAN, WAN or internet. LQ devices come in a 2-wire (LQ-2W2) or 4-wire (LQ-4W2) option.
The LQ-2W2 can connect partylines together for an intercom circuit over IP and is Clear-Com and RTS compatible. The company says the concept is similar to a mini partyline main station with IP connectivity.
The LQ-4W2 connects and routes audio between analogue ports of any matrix intercom system, analogue telephone circuits, two-way radio gateways and audio consoles. A maximum of six LQ Series devices can be linked together in any 2- or 4-wire combination.
The Eclipse HX v8.0 configuration software for the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom systems enables standard IP-connected V-Series panels to operate both as fully functional intercom keypanels and as multi-channel audio gateways. There is no requirement for additional hardware or software licences.
The software feature extends the Eclipse HX’s existing capability to provide remote matrix intercom connectivity over diverse IP infrastructure at no additional cost, which Clear-Com says will enable audio and intercom connectivity for applications such as live events to be more cost-effective.
