Clear-Com to Showcase E-IPA IP Audio Card for Eclipse HX Intercom at IBC2018
The E-IPA card comes in 16, 32, 48, and 64-port options, and is compatible with Eclipse HX-Delta, Median and Omega systems. Eclipse HX-Delta can support up to three E-IPA cards, while the Median and Omega can carry up to four, allowing users to build an extremely dense network with a mix of connectivity options. Compared to other Audio/Intercom-over-IP connectivity options on the market, intercom users can optimize their intercom investment on Eclipse HX and conserve system card slots for other connectivity needs.
E-IPA is natively AES-67 compliant and SMPTE2110-30 ready. For example, Clear-Com’s flagship FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system has an all-new AES67-based IP Wireless Transceiver (IPT). With up to 64 IP ports, the E-IPA card can support up to 64 IPTs and 64 FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks on just one card over AES-67 compliant IP networks.
“The E-IPA card is the first of two product launches on our new IP platform solution,” said Simon Browne, Vice President of Product Management, Clear-Com.
“With communications needs becoming more complex, the E-IPA card truly delivers IP flexibility to Clear-Com users worldwide. The high-density 64-port version also means that our users don’t have to use up valuable frame card slots to meet their needs. This is truly what IP promises and delivers.”
Now shipping, the E-IPA card and IPT will feature with Eclipse-HX on Clear-Com’s Booth 10. D29 at IBC2018, together with a wide range of Clear-Com’s trusted communications solutions.
