NAB 2017: Waskul.TV StudiXperience Booth to Feature Clear-Com
Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II wireless digital intercom system will be featured as hands-on technology for delegates to try at Waskul.TV’s StudioXperience booth (SL2424) during NAB 2017.
“StudioXperience is Waskul.TV’s ‘travelling broadcast studio’, allowing attendees to see first-hand a full range of cutting-edge video production technologies in action,” says Steve Waskul, CEO of Waskul Entertainment (owner of Waskul.TV). Waskul.TV’s portable studio has been a popular exhibit at major events such as previous NAB conventions, the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, FMX 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany; the Festival de Cannes in France, and SIGGRAPH 2016 in Anaheim, California. The studio will also be at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles this August.
Being included in the prestigious StudioXperience booth equipment line-up is a major honor for any broadcast technology manufacturer/vendor. It is also an opportunity to get substantial product exposure to the broadcast TV and video production community: “The Waskul.TV content from our StudioXperience appearances has been viewed in more than 175 countries by nearly 2 million viewers to date,” added Waskul.
This will be the third consecutive NAB convention that FreeSpeak II’s production communications capabilities will be demonstrated at the StudioXperience broadcast studio booth. The system that Clear-Com is featuring this year includes a FreeSpeak II base station, 10 FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks, three FreeSpeak II transceiver antennas, and a FreeSpeak II splitter.
“NAB 2017 delegates will be able to observe a fully-operational FreeSpeak II digital intercom system at a trade show known to have RF challenges – due to all the other wireless devices in use on the show floor,” said Michael Rucker, Clear-Com’s Director of Sales for North and South America. “FreeSpeak II works flawlessly, making it the preferred intercom system in the industry.”
FreeSpeak II wireless digital intercom system offers many advantages to broadcasters, video producers, and live event organizers. One key benefit is its ability to operate in either 1.9 GHz or 2.4 GHz bands. “The 1.9 GHz band is extremely popular with producers who are operating in areas with overloaded 2.4 GHz spectrum due to other wireless intercoms, microphones, and Wi-Fi networks,” Rucker said. “It provides reliable intercom communications in a less congested RF band.”
FreeSpeak II’s coverage is easy to expand, thanks to its use at multiple transceiver antennas. To extend its range – even into hard-to-reach zones – all the user has to do is place and connect more transceiver antennas at the edge of the FreeSpeak II’s existing RF footprint. “Thanks to this feature, our clients have no trouble ensuring wireless intercom connectivity; no matter how big and challenging the space may be,” continued Rucker.
