The application features an adaptable UI that can be adjusted to meet the user’s desktop needs, effectively consolidating the user’s workstation.
Clear-Com has released the new Station-IC Virtual Desktop Client, a Mac and Windows-based software application that connects to Clear-Com’s Eclipse Digital intercom Matrix and coming soon, the LQ Series of IP interface devices. Station-IC users connect natively to a central intercom system that hosts essential services such as audio and control systems, as well as panels, beltpacks, and even two-way radios or endpoints from other intercom manufacturers. Bringing Agent-IC’s intuitive UI to the desktop, with the added benefit of more licensing options and a flexible application window, both local and remote users can benefit from high-quality audio with very low latency. Designed to be quick to deploy with a straightforward configuration process and minimal network configuration, users can be communicating in a matter of minutes.
The application features an adaptable UI that can be adjusted to meet the user’s desktop needs, effectively consolidating the user’s workstation. Normal and full-screen mode provides the user access to large buttons, suitable for either mouse or touchscreen operation, and a compact mode floats non-intrusively over other active applications, providing direct access to favourite and reply keys without interrupting normal workflows.
Clear-Com offers Station-IC as both event and subscription licenses to better meet the needs of a broad range of applications. For production companies, the Event license is a cost-effective and flexible solution available in one-week or one-month increments. For Broadcast studios, theatres, and other users who will be using Station-IC as part of their everyday workflow, the annual subscription license offers a lower cost-per-day and the ability to be transferred between computers as needed.
Kari Eythorsson, Product Manager for Clear-Com, said: “As workflows evolved over the last year and the demand increased for our Agent-IC mobile app, it only made sense to look at bringing this functionality to our user’s PC desktops. I’m especially pleased that we’re able to offer the event licensing option for rental partners and others who will benefit from that flexibility.”
The current release works with Eclipse HX digital matrix, and a subsequent release in Q2 2021 will allow the software to work with the LQ Series of IP interfaces.
