Clear-Com debuting new V-Series Desktop at NAB 08

Clear-Com Communication Systems is bringing control of its
Eclipse Digital Matrix Intercom System to the users’ fingertips with the new,
compact V-Series Desktop unit. This latest addition to its family of V-Series
Panel products can sit on a tabletop or can be wall-mounted for quick access and
increased convenience. An innovator of communications solutions for the
broadcast, live performance, government and commercial markets, Clear-Com will
be showcasing the V-Series Desktop at NAB 2008 in their Booth C5908.

The desktop unit, complete with a low-profile loudspeaker
and gooseneck microphone, is designed with the users’ needs in mind. Each
of its 12 talk-down/listen-up keys, including one dedicated for answer-reply,
has individual audio level control. A clear, bright, graphical display shows 10
international characters including Chinese, Japanese and Russian, for greater
flexibility in the naming of sources and destinations. The shift button
gives access to eight further switch pages and the menu button provides access
to assignment and set-up menus.

“The new V-Series Desktop offers the same audio quality our
users have come to expect from all of our user panels and extends it to the
desktop for portability and convenience,” says Jake Dodson, Vice President of
Product Management. “Since it is not rack-mounted, it can be easily moved
throughout the broadcast facility, all with the best, most intuitive display in
the industry. Whether it’s highly skilled and technical engineers working in a
transmission facility, producers working in commentary booths or journalists
working in their offices, V-Series is designed to put users in control with the
touch of a finger for easy, reliable and seamless communication.”

All panels in the V-Series line feature Clear-Com’s “Listen
Again” technology that employs digital audio memory to allow the user to replay
received incoming calls, aiding communication in noisy and demanding
environments, as is common in the broadcast setting.

Advanced digital signaling processing (DSP) gives the
operator increased control over their panel’s audio including routing, EQ, mic
limiting and headset sidetone. It also enables intelligent dimming and local
IFBs. Panel keys offer individual mix level control, allowing users to
set personal audio levels to suit individual workflows. Presenting users
with increased control over their audio environment, the V-Series Desktop
provides producer/commentator dual operation with stereo monitoring, binaural
headset listening, cough switching and local intelligent IFB
control/loudspeaker dimming.
