(NAB 2015, BOOTH C5409--March 12, 2015) Clear-Com® will show its recently released LQ™ Series
, IP interface devices designed for linking intercom and audio systems across long distances over IP networks at this year’s NAB Booth C5409. With LQ devices, users of 2-wire partyline intercoms and 4-wire intercom and audio systems would be able to cost-effectively and quickly expand their intercom systems with no additional wiring. All the intercom linking is achieved over IP networks: house LAN, WAN or internet. NAB 2015 takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 13-16, 2015.
Released in January 2015, the LQ Series is Clear-Com's newest line of Intercom Connectivity (ICON) solutions. With either the two-wire (LQ-2W2) or four-wire (LQ-4W2) options, the LQ devices are ideal for intercom users who need to cost-effectively extend their existing intercom systems to single or multiple remote locations over their IT infrastructures, eliminating lengthy audio cable runs. LQ can also interface between different intercom systems routing both call signaling and audio over LAN, WAN or Internet IP connections: 2-wire partyline with other OEM partyline systems, 2-wire with 4-wire devices, and 4-wire with 4-wire systems. The LQ-2W2 is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible. A maximum of six LQ Series interfaces can be linked together to form a managed network.
“Regardless of the type of intercom system being used, the LQ Series makes it easy to extend the system to the other side of a building, across campus, or across the world,” said Stephen Sandford Clear-Com’s Product Manager for Matrix and IP interfaces. “The ability to have an intercom station wherever Internet access is available is invaluable as productions become more complex and the need for reliable distributed communications becomes more important. The LQ Series addresses this need perfectly.”
These two-channel devices are light-weight, portable and compact. They are easy to deploy and do not take up valuable rack space. Configuration is effortlessly achieved over a browser based user interface. Unique features of the LQ Series devices include Power over Ethernet, auto-nulling capability, multi-cast 1 to 5 routing, auto-discovery and use of the OPUS codec for high quality audio and low bit rate transmission.
The complete Clear-Com line of new and enhanced products will be available for demonstration at NAB 2015 on Booth C5409.
