Clear-Com Presents Updates to the Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Intercom Family

Product range provides flexible and proven IP connectivity

Clear-Com® will demonstrate enhancements to the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom family of products at NAB 2014. The Eclipse HX platform was designed and engineered to be highly flexible and extensible for addressing the intercom needs of the global production community, delivering high system performance, intuitive management software, and high capacity for system expansion.

The Eclipse HX range gives broadcasters a broad choice of digital intercom system for all kinds of live broadcasts, from large system frames for coverage of major events to compact systems for mobile production where space is limited. All models in the Eclipse HX range provide highly flexible IP connectivity, whether using an existing infrastructure to connect to the matrix or connecting remotely and securely over open networks like the Internet. Eclipse HX’s proven IP technology has been deployed globally where users require reliable, high quality communications in critical production settings.

The latest features of the Eclipse HX range include:

·    Ethernet/IP Intelligent Trunking with IVC-32-HX Redundancy - with the application of Ethernet and IP connectivity continuing to grow in live production, Clear-Com has enhanced its 32-channel IVC-32-HX IP card to allow flexible Ethernet/IP intelligent trunking of up to 64 local and/or remote Eclipse HX Matrix frames. This capability builds on the IVC-32-HX cards proven capability to support local or remotely connected V-Series Panels. This unique card works on lower bandwidth interfaces, and enables automatic failover to provide peace of mind.


·    V-Series Panel Dual Label and Multi Language Support - offers non-Roman characters and dual label support on all V-Series panels, and allows operators to toggle between two pre-defined languages on the panel. This is most helpful in production situations where two operators with different preferred languages share use the intercom system, or want to assign both a functional name and a personal name to user panel keys.

Peter Stallard, Senior Product Manager, Clear-Com, said, “The Eclipse HX family is the ideal matrix intercom solution for live productions on a local or global scale, offering scalability and high performance for implementing changes rapidly and easily.”
