Clear-Com, Optocore and BroaMan Hosted Joint Demos of Real World Signal Distribution
“At Prolight+Sound 2013 we’re looking to illustrate how easy it is for professional live event production companies handling a large remote event to set up a video, audio, communications and data backbone quickly and efficiently utilizing Clear-Com, and BroaMan and Optocore solutions,” says Bob Boster, President of Clear-Com. “We are happy to partner with Optocore and BroaMan once again to bring further connectivity options to our users.”
To demonstrate the partnership, Clear-Com and Optocore have connected their stands via fiber-optic cable. Both stands are linked with the Optocore and BroaMan real-time fiber solutions for audio, HD video, intercom and data. To create a live production, two strands of fiber will connect the Clear-Com stand to the Optocore stand (Hall 8.0, Stand G41). Optocore and BroaMan products will be transporting HD video, audio-playback and talkback to one of the kiosks within the Clear-Com stand.
“We have developed the BroaMan video products to help support the transport of video signals along with audio, data and intercom via our Optocore network,” says Tine Hemle Managing Director, BroaMan. “We are glad to be working with Clear-Com to demonstrate the possibilities of our solutions.”
